Ital Tek

Ital Tek

Sunday, November 18

When Brighton, England’s Ital Tek aka Alan Myson laid down the spooky footwork beats and industrial, bass heavy dubstep of his latest album Nebula Dance, he moved both genres to the next level. The Planet Mu artist released Nebula Dance, his third album, in October and the eerie beats and uptempo sound—similar to acts like Club Root and FaltyDL—have impressed producers and DJs around the world. Not a far cry from his 2008 debut album, Cyclical or his 2010 album Midnight ColourNebula Dance reaches into outer-space with tracks like “Dusk Beat,” and the album’s title track, which are highlighted by extended breakbeats and dense atmospheres—appropriate for an album named after an interstellar cloud of space dust. Although some would expect a greater change in sound between albums, Nebula Dance has simply perfected Ital Tek’s signature Planet Mu sound, ranking him alongside names like Kuedo, Floating Points, Eskmo, and Machinedrum as the label’s strongest talents. Take this opportunity to check out one of England’s most promising upcoming producer/DJs when he comes to Duke’s with local support from Big Basha and Demi GodDrop DNico StatesTechNoddo,GhettotronicsRola!, and FastRepeater on Sunday (Nov 18). —cory perla
