Daniel Martin-McCormick, formerly Ital, now Relaxer, returns to Planet Mu with his new album 'Concealer'.

The album drifts towards hyper digital sounds and marks Daniel's return to using a computer with hardware.

Combining the ultra-artifice of the digital and its glossy, pure surface qualities, Daniel comments that it "gives the sounds this sickly, shiny dimensionality which is un-human.

This decoupling from the human-ness of sound means the sounds can speak in their own special way.

Of course, all sounds can speak in their way, but a vivid, digital, melty synth speaks in a way that feels more autonomous, or less tied to historical/encultured musical gestures.

It hovers in the air and melts and glides. It's a little gross." His return to Planet Mu has been long overdue.

the new record is an expansion and development of the ultra-artificial, hybrid digital contortions of his previous material.

Welcome back.
