Premiere: Watch Ital’s Video For “Culture Clubs”


In this week’s Voice cover story, Michaelangelo Matos profiles Daniel Martin-McCormick, the Brooklyn musician currently making waves under the name Ital. In the video for “Culture Clubs,” shot live in Cleveland last November by Aurora Halal and premiering on Sound of the City, Martin-McCormick’s appeal as both a beatmaker and a live performer is made plain; he churns along with the music, making the energy ripple outward in such a way that makes movement instinctual. Clip below.

In case you want to catch this in action, Ital plays the Knitting Factory on Wednesday, March 21, and the Unsound Festival edition of the Bunker, at Warsaw, on Friday, April 20.
