ital - Dream On
In swift, suitably unnatural succession to 'Hive Mind', Daniel Martin-McCormick gives birth to his second LP as Ital; the more substantial, crazed and knotty house and techno rerouting of 'Dream On'. With more than 20 weeks of touring notched up in the interim, it's largely influenced by his time on the road and the experience of tweaking his live set, and we'd guess, witnessing many others along the way, harnessing a sort of febrile, dissonant energy and torque marking a bold move forward. Production wise, it still sounds like it was made in the box - there's no analogue lushness; it still feels very breathless and unapologetically synthetic, which is where the lines get drawn and semantically twisted between the sensuality of the stuff he references and the sly, relatively lo-fi futurism of his sound. The album opens with one of its maddest cuts, nearly nine minutes of melting, zig-zagging synth cadence and shakedown Chicago beats on 'Despot', followed by the hard-tripping cybeR&B 2-step of 'Boi', before contracting to the keening metallic noise miniature 'Eat Shit (Waterfalls Mix)' and the avant-techno wormholer 'Enrique'. Much like his jam-spar Jamal Moss, he's nailed the art of woozily kaotic cosmic harmony, contrasting smartly with the oozing bass on 'What A Mess', while the morse house logic of 'Deep Cut (Live Edit)' gives a strong idea of what to expect when you're at his next show.
