    Born Alfred Weisberg-Roberts in Santa Monica, California, producer/instrumentalist Daedelus wanted to be an inventor from an early age, a sentiment that led to him choosing an artistic moniker (in Greek mythology, Daedelus was known as an inventor, although Weisberg-Roberts also cites the character Stephan Dedalus in James Joyce's A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man -- as well as the ship in the Japanese cartoon Robotech -- as equally valid reasons for his selection) when he began releasing his own work. Despite the fact that he was formally trained on double bass and bass clarinet, had studied jazz at USC, and could play additional instruments such as the guitar and accordion, Daedeluschose to go the electronica route, often incorporating samples from the '30s and '40s into his IDM and left-field hip-hop.

    Though Daedelus' first single appeared 2001, it wasn't until the following year that his debut full-length, Invention, was released by the Plug Research label. Daedelus proved to be a prolific composer, and the following four years brought four new albums (released via Plug Research and Mush): 2003's Rethinking the Weather, 2004's Of Snowdonia, 2005's Exquisite Corpse, and 2006's Denies the Day's Demise. He also worked on countless singles and side projects, including a stint as a producer for his Mush labelmates. The musician's engaging live set was finally made available for fans, albeit in limited numbers, with Live at Low End Theory, which was recorded during a July 2007 performance at Los Angeles' The Airliner and released in early 2008. Love to Make Music To followed in July. Righteous Fists of Harmony, issued in 2010, was released on Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder label. In 2011, Ninja Tune released the ambitious Bespoke, which found Daedelus working with a long list of guest vocalists, including Will Wiesenfeld (Baths), Inara George of The Bird and the Bee, and Busdriver.

    In defying the laws of tradition, Los Angeles based music producer Mono/Poly (born Charles
Dickerson) has managed to outstrip the logics of multi genre producing. Known for his distinct madness of face melting bass, paired with his dreamy astral soundscapes of glitch-based hip-hop, Mono/Poly has proved himself to be a natural phenomenon. His debut album, The George Machine (EP) was released in the fall of 2009 on Faces Records, which was followed by his first full-length solo album Paramatma (Tasteful Licks) in the spring of 2010. In 2011, Mono/Poly released the Manifestations EP, making a strong debut on Brainfeeder Records, and it continues its heavy rotation being played by the likes of Radiohead, Erykah Badu and Jay Scarlett at BBC Radio’s 1XTRA. His most recent release is his anticipat- ed full-length album Golden Skies, also released on Brainfeeder in the summer of 2014, and received with the same global recognition and praise we’ve come to expect from his projects. Mono/Poly also appears on releases from Warp Records and Planet Mu, featured alongside fellow artists Flying Lotus and Nosaj Thing. His range has earned him a reputation as a revolutionary producer and gained him vast recognition among listeners and artists alike, yielding collaborations with the likes of Erykah Badu and Kendrick Lamar, both of whom will feature Mono/Poly's signature style and unparalleled grasp of melody and mayhem on their upcoming albums. He continues to perform his live sets across the globe having covered Greece, Switzerland, France and Lithuania, in addition to his steady touring in the US.
