Jeeez, this sounds "well Planet Mu" from the off. Alan Myson opens his "difficult third album" under his iTAL tEK moniker with a chunk of plunging kaleidoscopic tribal grime that morphs in and out of a braindance 'n' sub-bass sound-world. It's a tasty first course. This album promises to be significantly different to his tuff abstract dubstep inclined roots so we'll check out 'Pixel Haze'. This recalls Hyetal and early Clubroot, a hyper-technicolour sci-fi journey with insistent lo-end surges and much sparkly synthwork.

'Dusk Beat' offers up a slight frisky footwork feel to the beats which are minutely detailed and alarmingly vibrant, there's some nice old sensual Derrick May-style keys on here, the whole tune sounds really invigorating and dreamy, proper lush. As I'm rushing to get this review in on time I'll not break it down completely but another stand-out for me is the halfway marker 'Glokk' - this begins with an hypnotic cyclic riff, possesses a wicked meditative bass line, has some gorgeous vibraphone effects and a spiritual future-dubstep vibe like those amazing early Peverelist twelves.

'Solar Sail' is a totally breezy, compelling blinder of a track too - all cosmic tribal acid rhythms, lively sensual keys and snaky-assed bass. Also well worth noting you get to hear a truly futuristic garage/grime-tinged track in the form of the extraordinary 'Gonga' with its ever-ascending Galaxian drive and cheeky kicking polyrhythms. This constant evolution in contemporary bass music ultimately leaves us a consistently excellent album from this young Brightonian!
