Daedelus is the name under which Los Angeles-based electro-musician Alfred Darlington makes music. Love to Make Music To is his first album for Ninja Tune. Darlington describes the album as “the imaginary memory of a time that never was” and a “drug/love record.” Guests are aplenty on Love. They include Paperboy, members of the Sa-Ra Foundation, Laura Darling (who just so happens to be Darlington’s wife), and producer Michael Johnson, who has worked with the Lilys and Holopaw. johnzeis@prefix.

After many ground breaking compilations and sideline projects (”DKD” & “Silhouette Brown”) the sound of London Boogie arrives! Dego & Kaidi now revert to the “2000 Black” moniker for this new installment to their evergrowing collection of masterpieces. “A Next Set A Rockers” is a genre defying collection of studio recordings demonstrating all that has influenced 2000 Black. Soul, Funk and Boogie are revealed in the bands very own unique style. The labyrinth of 70’s synthesizers and drums create a lavish warm feel in contrast to the current digital age. “A Next Set A Rockers’ has been crafted by the production skills of 4hero’s Dego and Bugz In The Attic’s Kaidi Tatham. Tracks like “Febulous” drop hypnotic dancehall percussion laced under the warmest brazilian sound, in addition the duo’s dynamic sound is complemented by strong songs such as “Lost It” featuring the voice of Face, “So Right” with Ferraz, “Simple Sacrifice” sung by Nadine Charles, “Take It Back” with Rasiyah, plus Philadelphia’s Lady Alma on “Move Over”.

About Muhsinah – Pronounced [mu•s?•n?] – Singer, producer, vigilante, lover, dreamer.
Having landed on the musical radar like some kind of a phantom battleship, this Washington D.C. native continues to fires away at us, sinking nay-sayers and making a name for herself at a rate which some might consider alarming. Appearing on a slew of independent releases this year, Muhsinah has earned each and every title that’s been thrown her way- engineer/producer/composer/singer/songwriter/arranger/inspiration and the like. Contrary to popular misconception, Muhsinah was not dropped off on this planet by some enigmatic cosmic force; she hitched a ride on her own star. Listen

Hayzee – Spacedoll
Much like her debut album, Moments of Clarity, Wayna‘s newest release, Higher Ground, displays a level of artistry that’s rarely found among the plethora of singers presently occupying the musical landscape.
Over Ground‘s 13 songs, the Ethiopian-born, D.C. area-raised Wayna manages to accomplish the often unmanageable task of coupling meaningful, decipherable lyrics with well produced and compelling tracks. Although not representative of the album’s overall subject matter, “Billie Club” captures this sentiment perfectly. With vocal and production assistance from Three Stars alumna Muhsinah.
One of the great things about Wayna is that while she can have a track like “Billie Club” on her album, with all of its potential explosiveness, she can also have “Mr. Duracell”, which is less about batteries and more about a device in which said brand could be used to power. She recognizes that as humans, we go through a range of emotions and, as a result, can’t stay in one feelings box for all times. Artists who understand this and have the tact to convey it in a way where their audience can relate it to their everyday lives will always have supporters. Wayna has done this, and with the help of a talented group of (local)producers(Kev Brown on “Not Gonna Go), has put out a noteworthy sophomore effort that deserves to be heard by all who consider themselves musically literate and love music by artists who strive to make a connection to their listeners that is more than superficial.full@WJacarlMelton
