Daedelus "Exquisite Corpse" (2005)
There is a lot going on with this album. Musically, you have orchestral passages, skittering beats, and other elements you'd expect to find in turn of the millennium electronica. But he's also enlisted the help of a variety of A list underground rappers -- Doom, Mike Ladd.
It's not surprising that Daedelus' music hasn't ever really caught on in a big way. But given the success of other LA acts you'd expect that he'd see more interest just from being part of the same locale. This is challenging, but worth the effort.
