Beatmaking its way across North America for the last month has been the Magical Properties tour. Created and curated by L.A. experimental noisemaker Daedelus, (née Alfred Darlington) the 26-date tour serves as a training ground and showcase opportunity for electronic world fresh talent. Now in its fourth year, previous Magical Properties have hosted artists including Tokimonsta, Nosaj Thing, and Shlohmo. This time around, the lineup includes Canadian producer Ryan Hemsworth, L.A.'s own Samo Sound Boy and Salva, Denver twins Two Fresh and Darlington himself as the dandy-ish magic making ringleader.
