A self-described mad scientist of 'micro-soul,' Daniel Gardner (Frivolous) has gained a solid reputation in a very short time. With recordings on various renowned labels such as Pokerflat, Background and Karloff, he places himself in the same category as Herbert, Akufen, Hakan Lidbo and other purveyors of a blended, consolidated house music style. Frivolous integrates vocal elements and classic instruments in his laboratory for digital studies. His delicately structured compositions borrow the cut-up technique to ascertain the funk roots and the jazzy, off-kilter, found sound that so poignantly characterizes his musical endeavours. Many 'pearls' to be discovered here!
