iTAL tEK realizes his foot(work) fetish with new album Nebula Dance on Planet Mu

Planet Mu was founded by Mike Paradinas in 1995, and if I didn’t know any better, I would’ve assumed that Alan Myson a.k.a. iTAL tEK was right there alongside him, unpacking boxes, helping to sign new artists, and… I don’t know, probably watching Nickelodeon. Myson is in his mid-20s now, so I refuse to acknowledge the possibility that any 15 year-old living in the developed world wasn’t watching Nickelodeon during the mid-90s. That aside, the relationship that he’s established with the label over the past few years is enough to make you wonder whether marriage is in the future.

Postpone the wedding bells; we’ll just have to content ourselves with Nebula Dance, iTAL tEK’s newest album on Planet Mu, which is due out October 22.

His previous two albums, Cyclical and Midnight Colour, were worthwhile forays into an intriguing mixture of… let’s say dubstep and IDM, while his latest exercise is more blatantly influenced by the trendy developments in the footwork genre. You can partially blame DJ Diamond and Machinedrum for that, who both released two of the best albums of 2011, courtesy of, well, Planet Mu of course. Despite its clear influences, expect Nebula Dance to be at least one thing: fresh-sounding. iTAL tEK seems to have a knack for it. Preview the album here.
