NYC resident Ital returns with a dark and stressful EP in the form of the appropriately titled Toxic Work Environment. The muffled kick-drum mirrors heart palpitations with the moody synth doing little to lighten the mood. Occasional glimpses of respite offer release from the existential panic that makes up the bulk of this ultra-contemporary effort. Out on vinyl 12” from Gang Of Ducks.
According to Ital, things are about to get psychedelic -- whatever that's supposed to mean. The important thing is that he's done releasing EPs and is delivering his first full-length, the ominously titled 'Endgame'. According to Ital himself, the record is something of a dancefloor horror flick, working with warm, welcoming electronic tones before going to gruesome, reverb-drenched places that leave the listener insecure. Ital's minimal arrangements make 'Endgame' sparse and uneasy. Dark techno? What next?
‘The Day After’ is a new psychedelic collaboration between producer and creator of N.Y.C’s underground party series ‘Mutual Dreaming’ Aurora Halal and Planet Mu records’s Ital. Recorded over 6 months and released on Ital’s label Lovers Rock, ‘The Day After’ is a rich, synth driven record of uplifting disco burners driven by persistent rhythms.
Planet Mu present a new LP from Ital. Prior to the release of Dream On the one known to his friends as Daniel Martin-McCormick dropped EPs on Lovers Rock and 100% Silk. Judging by this collection of maximalist, harmonious and slightly psychedelic house and techno it’s easy to see why the aforementioned labels were so keen to get him on board. Think Lone and Virginia.
