Daedelus has dedicated his musical career to the war against cliché. Like his mythological namesake, Alfred Darlington is an inventor, a craftsman, a constructor of labyrinths. Others get trapped in the maze; he knows how to build wings.

In early 2012, Tk was both signed to Paper Diamond's label Elm & Oak and LA beat crew, TeamSupreme. Shortly after, he produced the hit single "Werkin' Girls" for Angel Haze which was released through Universal/Motown & Island Records UK. In 2013, he began working with and released an EP with Grammy nominated producer, KE on the Track and also formed a tribal-edm project called @LIONKNGS with fellow Team Supreme member, King Henry. Tk's sound can be described as high energy club music with Dirty South 808's melded with titillating, hyper-sexual elements.
Tk Kayembe's music has been featured in mixes by the likes of Baauer, Djemba Djemba, Ryan Hemsworth, Paper Diamond, Plastician, Hoodboi, Purity Ring, Falcons and Jack Beats. He has also shared the stage with phenomenal artists such as Salva, Ryan Hemsworth, Two Fresh, Giraffage and Black Star, and has played major festivals such as Coachella, Electric Forest, River Beats, and more.

Get Jeremy Sole songs and albums on:
As a teenager, Sole's loft parties were a culture clash during the birth of Hip Hop and House music. His upbringing was seeped in the rich Chicago history of Blues, Jazz, Disco, Salsa and Soul - and he reveled in that space where they all blend together. His obsession grew to include music from every corner of the world, and in 2001 Sole moved to LA. With a broad musical palette he felt right at home in the spiciest melting pot in the country.
AFRO FUNKÉ. Drawing a loyal crowd weekly for over 8 years, this is his arena for Afrobeat, Latin, Brazilian and other authentic and remixed world rhythms. Hundreds of international guests have joined in, from deejays Rich Medina and Cut Chemist to impromptu jam sessions with Zap Mama and Stevie Wonder.
theLIFT. Partnering with Eric "Wiseacre" Tucker, Sole returns to his underground roots. Monthly, all-night warehouse events with guests the likes of Gilles Peterson and Danny Krivit gracing the stages. What started at his small downtown loft, moved to different undisclosed locations each month, growing to over 1,100 people as LA came together to celebrate their one-year anniversary. theLIFT has been to Miami, NYC, Palm Springs, and now takes place monthly in both San Francisco and LA.
Jeremy has had the honor of sharing the stage and studio with hundreds of his inspirations; Roy Ayers, Ben Harper, Tony Allen, DJ Shadow, Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan, Seu Jorge, Antibalas, Fat Freddy's Drop, Parliament, Quantic, Joe Bataan, etc. He was the last DJ to open for Ray Charles, mixed for Sly Stone's birthday party, and was deejaying the California Democratic Party's Election Night event (over 10k in attendance) at the exact moment when Obama officially became the 44th President.
In April 2006 Sole was in the studio producing with Ms. Lauryn Hill. After hearing him mix she asked if he had ever considered getting into radio, "...because this is the music the people need to hear". Months later KCRW called to ask him that same question, and since then you can hear him Wednesdays 12-3am on 89.9 KCRW.
Sole has done remixes for FEMI KUTI, DAVID BOWIE, THIEVERY CORPORATION, DJ SHADOW, QUANTIC and NATURAL SELF, and remixes for JAZZANOVA, LITTLE DRAGON and (many) more in the works.
JEREMY SOLE'S MUSAICS. A 9-piece live ensemble, including members of The Lions, Quantic Soul Orchestra, Mayer Hawthorne and Build an Ark. Miguel Atwood-Ferguson on violin, and Todd Simon leading the horn section on trumpet. Jeremy is on turntables and guitar - sampling ethnic percussion and sounds from vintage records, writing live arrangements, and juxtaposing it all as musical mosaics, or "Musaics". It's an experimental-yet-steady sound that hybridizes elements of Afrobeat, Cumbia, Spiritual Jazz and dubbed-out dancefloor beats.
