Scottish producer/artist Mylo (aka Myles MacInnes) finally crosses the Atlantic with the stateside release of his internationally-lauded debut Destroy Rock & Roll. Originally released in the UK last year (via his own Breastfed imprint), the set has been hailed as “one of the best debut albums of recent times” propelling the former bedroom DJ / sample junkie into the global dance/pop music spotlight. With Destroy Rock & Roll, the sonic alchemist concocts a devilishly intoxicating musical stew melding sophisticated electro grooves, gritty chunky beats and fat-bottomed bass lines with hypnotic disco-house floor-fillers, palatial electronic textures and plush strings into a wildly infectious multi-flavored soundtrack. Drawing inspiration from a diverse array of sources including Prince ("Guilty of Love"), Daft Punk ("Otto's Journey"), Bent (“Sunworshipper”), Groove Armada, Royksopp and even Scissor Sisters ("Muscle Car Reform Reprise"), the beat-heavy opus is as refreshingly inventive as it is wickedly intelligent. The US edition includes the UK top 20 hits “Drop The Pressure," "In My Arms" (a sparkling tribute to Kim Carnes’ classic 80s hit "Bette Davis Eyes") and the explosive title track, as well as, current smash “Doctor Pressure” (Mylo’s own high-octane reworking of the underground bootleg mash up of his “Drop The Pressure” anthem and Miami Sound Machine's “Doctor Beat”) and the luxurious "Need You Tonite.” While some might argue they’ve heard all of this before, Mylo injects enough of his own distinctive style and sound to silence naysayers and amass a broad fanbase far beyond the confines of dance music.
