Kraddy has a new EP called Labyrinth coming out November 9 on Alpha Pup Records; if this new endeavor sounds intentionally hard, heavier and aggressive, that’s because it is. Describing his sound as “Zeppelin 3000,” Kraddy unites the hard edge of rock with the infinite possibilities of electronic music, and the result is an album that gives it.

Some music sinks hooks deep into my brain and pulls new ideas out, inspiring me to create art of my own, to write, to pace my living room, to stay up late reading The Myth of Sisyphus. The best music or any kind of art changes the way you see the world; voilà ceci de Lorn, who recently released one of my favorite albums of the year on Brainfeeder, Nothing Else.
The half-hour mix ends with the unreleased 13th track of the album “Until There Is No End,” followed by a short interview with the Milwaukee-based artist that gear nerds will love but everyone can appreciate. Check the Dubspot Radio post for another mix by host Matt Shadetek of Dutty Artz.

The experimental music producer hits New Zealand this month and then sets off on a nationwide tour beginning February 4 for his new label Magical Properties with Nosaj Thing and Jogger. Daedelus sat down with me for an interview at Philippe’s French Dip to speak on collisions of sound, art and fashion in the creative communities of Los Angeles and his personal conspiracy theory.
