Although the New York City-based producer Daniel Martin-McCormick first came to attention of many through his work in Mi-Ami (Thrill Jockey) and Sex Worker (Not Not Fun) it’s the left-of-centre house excursions under his Ital moniker that have got the dance world talking.
Early 2011 saw the release of "Ital's Theme" his debut as Ital and also the very first release out on Amanda Brown's (LA Vampires / Pocahaunted) dance label 100% Silk. With echoes of Omar S, this orgiastic eight minute jam of interlocking arpeggiating synth-lines, gurgling bass and gnarled high-hats has made everyone from the mainstream UK dance press to the Tumblr underground sit up and pay attention.
Fast-forward to today and Ital is at the forefront of the US underground’s excursions into the world of forward-thinking backward-looking house & techno. Recognising Martin-McCormick’s talent and depth, the legendary Planet Mu have signed him for his first full length effort, Hive Mind, to be released in February 2012.
Catch ITAL playing his only LIVE show at The Phoenix Public House - Friday 27th Jan sharing the stage with Kangaroo Skull (My Disco side project) as well as NO ZU, Forces and interstitial selectors the Plastic Champagne DJs.
