Mylo – Destroy Rock & Roll

Dance music sourced from the corniest ’70s and ’80s MOR? Not as ridiculous as it sounds. Besides, Daft Punk and The Avalanches already precede Mylo (Skye’s Myles Maclnnes) in the ‘flirting with the unfashionable’ stakes. Even so, this goes one step further, specifically in the way Mylo yanks obvious hook lines from the likes of Kim Carnes, Chaka Khan and Toto, then nails them to a softcore techno thump. Hard not to admire his audacity as much as his ear for a great drivetime radio riff.
