Daniel Martin-McCormick's Spin Control

The Mi Ami rocker hits the decks as Ital

The big reason he went for Planet Mu, Martin-McCormick says, is that he's a fan of its releases by Chicago footwork acts such as DJ Rashad, DJ Nate, and DJ Spinn, who make fast music built on cheap drum machines and directed, as the name says, at intricate dance moves. Footwork's gibbering samples inspired Hive Mind's opening track, "Doesn't Matter (If You Love Him)," the first thing Martin-McCormick had finished when the deal went through.

"I was really inspired when I heard it," he says. "It just felt like, you think there are rules?" He laughs. "There are no fucking rules."
