Foofy Town

PSYCHEDELIC DISCO HOUSE churning from the farthest corners of the neon illuminated dance floor touches down on another installment of FACT magazine’s exclusive mix series.

Naughty number 269 could only be tamed by a producer willing to get foofy, playing matchmaker to old school cuts that’re unafraid of experimenting with one another and willing to push it through the red zone.

Only Daniel Martin-McCormick of Ital had the gall to produce this gender bending gem.  Rivaling Travis Stewart of Machinedrum as the hardest working man in the biz, FACT #269 is just the tip of the Ital iceberg.

Embarking on 100% Silk’s maiden voyage with “Ital’s Theme”, Martin-McCormick has since dropped another silky single, “Only For Tonight”, as well as “Culture Clubs” on his label Lovers Rock, and, of course, the Streetwise collabo with LA Vampires.

Ital doesn’t toy with preheating the oven, but goes straight for the fire with fellow 100% Silk-er Magic Touch’s “Clubhouse” busting out on the opening track.

Barbara Mason’s “Another Man” laments the loss of her man to…another man, taking on new interpretations as it’s revisited in our 21st Century, post-gender world.

The sitar threads beaming from Boredoms’ “House of Sun” wraps up the mix in an aura of cosmic introspection, allowing you to reflect on Ital’s wild ride.

Stealth bomber Ital is always dropping sonic booms, so don’t be surprised if jazner features another single here in the near future.  For now, enjoy the mix.
