In this release for Flying Lotus’ up-and-coming label Brainfeeder,

Daedelus presents a soundtrack-of-sorts to the Boxer Rebellion. What,

you ask, could make such ancient history an inspiration for modern

electronics? Well, Daedelus has found a strange relevance to our

modern malady in these epic events of long ago…

Daedelus endeavors to compose a requiem for the end — of beliefs, of

lives, and of an era. This elegy for a bygone battle sheds light on

our own contemporary conundrum: will our faith in modernity be our

downfall? Are we blinded by this age of wonders, doomed to be

destroyed by our ingenious inventions? Although Daedelus’ music has

always juxtaposed organic and electronic elements, they war as never

before on “Righteous Fists of Harmony,” a portrait of a tumultuous era

that came crashing to a close.


Born and raised in the South Bay area of Los Angeles, TOKiMONSTA (Jennifer Lee) was an unfocused pupil of classical piano. However, she has come to use this background to create vast textural soundscapes through utilizing live instruments, percussion, digital manipulation, and dusty noise. Through her musical creations, she is able to fuse vintage sounds with progressive styles into something unique.

Her music has been recognized and praised by the very best in avant-garde and mainstream media. TOKiMONSTA has been featured on various large scale radio programs such as: BBC Radio1, NPR, BBC World Service, J Wave (JP), Studio Brussels (BE), Radio Nova (FR), KCRW (USA) to name a few. Subsequently, she has been featured in print by DJ Mag, Pitchfork, XLR8R, URB, Paper, LA Times, SPIN, and more. LA Weekly ranked her as 2010's #1 female DJ in Los Angeles. Additionally, Resident Adviser did a full feature on her for their "Breaking Through," an RA series which focuses on the next big artist.

Not only has she caught ears of many as a different dimension of Los Angeles-based music, TOKiMONSTA is notably the first female to join crew/label BRAINFEEDER headed by Flying Lotus- celebrated as the most exciting LA music label by LA Weekly. In addition, she is also a 2010 Red Bull Music Academy alumni, allowing her to join the ranks of other elite taste maker alumni.

Her live performance is engaging as well as intricate-using a laptop, other pieces of instrumentation and multimedia to orchestrate a truly interactive experience. She is a fearless and energetic performer who tours regularly around the world from LA to NY, London to Tel Aviv, Singapore to Tokyo. Some notable past performance were at DEMF, Sonar Barcelona. With the positive exposure and increasing movement surrounding her, she is scheduled to perform at Coachella, WMC, SXSW, Sonar Tokyo, Wakarusa, and more in 2011. She will also be co-headlining with Daedelus on a 32 date US tour.


20-years old Shlohmo (living in Los Angeles and San Francisco) delivers the soundtrack for the LA aftershow party. His tracks swarm from dirty textures, strange sounds and obscured samples. It’s Hip Hop that you hear, the echoes are clearly there: under the blanket the beats are alive and kicking, the compression is awful (as we love it) and from the way Shlohmo arranges his tracks, it is clear what this kid listens to at night.

Solanaceous and surreal music from the point Burial and Flying Lotus let off. He also part-runs the WEDIDIT Collective.
