According to Planet Mu, “Alan Myson is entering a new phase, of which last year’s Gonga EP was the first step” as he explores styles of music with higher tempos as he “[reacts] to developments in dubstep, jungle and more recently footwork, retraining Ital Tek‘s instinct for deep and melodic music with an emphasis on dramatic drum work and impressionistic synths with restrained precision.”
Remaining just outside of the scene seems to have worked in Myson’s favour, nobody expects him to make a footwork record or a house record or a dubstep record. All they expect is an Ital Tek record, a different record.
Featured on the album, which will be titled ‘Nebula Dance’, are a couple of tracks you may have already heard, namely an alternate demo version of ‘Pixel Haze’ (which you can listen to below) and ‘Gonga’.
‘Nebula Dance’ will be released 22 October via Planet Mu. You can listen to an alternate demo mix of one of the tracks from the album, ‘Pixel Haze’, below.
