Daedelus ‎– Of Snowdonia. Daedelus has been a stalwart of the dublab scene, and OF SNOWDONIA only cements his position more. From the slight jazz of "Snowed In" to the noise-and-noir of "A Sneaking Suspicion," he proves his musical chops and his understanding of craftsmanship. Aim True" starts with classical strings, but quickly shifts into a swirling collage of sound and rhythms, structured around a mysterious vocal sample

But while Daedelus' music partakes of the collage aesthetic of 20th-century musique concrète, the results are invariably easy on the ear, and sometimes quite melodically sophisticated even when the rhythms are jungly or the textures glitchy. The interaction of jittery drum'n'bass rhythms, and bass clarinet on "Scaling Snowdon" is one such example, as is the funky but sweet 1970s movie-soundtrack flavor of "Taking Wing

Of Snowdonia, like Invention, is extremely dense. Daedelus has chosen samples of a substantially more unified ilk here, and to dizzying effect, he often hurdles through them seven or eight at a time. In addition, Daedelus intrudes upon his samples more: guitar, standard IDM color and drum effects, and even his own voice peek into the mix, hoping to bridge the distance between the sampled fragments and the new audience. The fast-paced "Snowed In" is Of Snowdonia's de facto standout track. Closer "Hiraethus" focuses on acoustic piano loop, with which Daedelus vocally harmonizes. It's the album's shortest song, but easily its prettiest. Yet, while Daedelus succeeds on much of On Snowdonia, some of its tracks suffer from one of two problems.
