||The Baker’s Dozen kick off in 2017 with its 5th volume. Baker’s
Dozen, an exclusive vinyl series that shines a light on the best minds
of instrumental hip-hop, ambient, and electronic music offers each
artist carte blanche to capture their signature sound. This edition
features Los Angeles based producer Daedelus.
Every volume features one artist and twelve tracks, and comes
equipped with a 5x7” postcard insert that features a photo of the
artist’s workspace along with the equipment used in their musicmaking process as well as a personal narrative of how they got
into beat making in the first place. Visually cohesive and packaged
with the utmost attention to detail, Baker’s Dozen is a series that
speaks up for artists whose craft renders voices superfluous, whose
instrumentals alone suffice to make a statement.
“...Of course that’s my intention here. A collection of beat inventions
from my now about 16 years of plumbing into crates, purchasing
pawnshop drum machines, and even crafting noise makers of my
own.” - Daedelus
