All Music Guide:
A dubstep producer specializing in dark, atmospheric sounds, Brighton's Ital Tek (born Alan Myson) first appeared in 2006 on the download label Net Lab. The release was the Terminator 2 EP, five tracks with a heavy Aphex Twin influence and samples of Arnold Schwarzenegger. In 2007 he introduced the deep dubstep sound that would become his signature when his "Blood Lines" 12" dropped on Planet Mu. That same year the Snippets collection rounded up unfinished works for Net Lab, while an appearance on Planet Mu's 200 compilation along with the 12" "Deep Pools" for the Square label would make influential DJs like BBC Radio's Mary Anne Hobbs fans and advocates. Hobbs would feature Ital Tek on her 2008 Presents Evangeline collection, then Planet Mu would release his debut full-length, Cyclical, that same year.
