ITAL TEK – CONTROL
Ital Tek’s Midnight Colour combined deep low-end, throbbing LED-laden atmospherics and tight beats to produce one of the finest albums of 2010. Follow up Nebula Dance saw Alan Myson’s production newly invigorated by the staccato beats of footwork and this new mini-album for Planet Mu, out on Nov 11 is a neat convergence of the two. The footwork DNA is still present and correct but he takes it into satisfyingly new territory, some of the gritty edge of Nebula Dance smoothed over by iridescent synths and fluoro textures. Not to say it isn’t tough, far from it, there are still tracks on here which bang hard.
