Little White Earbuds Presents Ital

LWE sat down with Ital recently to chat about Sustain-Release and his latest album Endgame, and he provided us with a recording from the festival.

Ital, Throbbing / Nodding

Moving on from the languid house tapestry of his Workshop 12″, Ital weaves two tracks for his own Lovers Rock imprint that extend their predecessor’s opulent wooze with a noticeably brusque physicality.

Interplanetary Prophets, Zero Hour

Ital and Hieroglyphic Being join forces as Interplanetary Prophets on the Zero Hour EP, which presents a cohesive and often bombastic journey into suitably dark astral plains.

Ital, Workshop 18

Luckily for fans of his early releases, Ital’s first record for seminal German imprint Workshop revives their surreal palette.

LWE’s Top 30 Tracks of 2011 (10-6)

LWE’s Top 5 EPs of 2011

For LWE’s first year-end list, assistant editor, Chris Miller, selects five of the best records of the year which ordinarily escape list-makers.

Talking Shopcast with 100% Silk

With 100% Silk standing as one of 2011’s major developments, LWE called label owner Amanda Brown to discuss the label’s origins, its aesthetics, and its future. LWE also commissioned Magic Touch to represent the label with a mix, and his selection is an energetic exploration of classic sounds, with some original edits and new material to boot.

Ital, Only For Tonight

The third solo record from Ital, Only For Tonight, is more bombastic but equally as weird as its predecessors.

LWE Podcast 97: Ital

Ital is informed by twentieth century avant-garde composition as much as Omar-S or Hieroglyphic Being, and LWE’s 97th exclusive podcast makes this eclectic approach explicitly clear.

Ital, Culture Clubs

Culture Clubs, Martin-McCormick’s second solo 12″ as Ital and first for his own Lovers Rock imprint, realizes the potential behind his looming influences.

Ital, Ital’s Theme

Ital’s Theme, the first release for Not Not Fun’s 100% Silk sub-label, is a continuation of Daniel Martin-McCormick’s noise and dance sonics.
