This week’s Top Tune comes via Isle of Skye, Scotland bred DJ/record producer Mylo (Myles MacInnes) from his debut 2004 album Destroy Rock & Roll. A mix of twisted house, electroclash and chilled vibes, the album which reached #26 on the UK album chart and netted Mylo four Top 20 UK Club tracks and a top 10 U.S. Dance chart hit, has drawn comparisons to the work of Daft Punk, Groove Armada and Royksopp.
Growing up on Skye, one of the furthest flung corners of Europe, MacInnes couldn’t be too choosy about his sources of music. “Basically we had Atlantic 252,” he explains. “It was this kind-of soft rock station on long-wave. We all believed it to be transmitted from a boat floating out in the mid-Atlantic.” Continually on tour from club gigs to stints at Coachella and the Isle of Wedge festivals, Mylo is also in demand as a remixer, contributing remixes for artists that include Scissor Sisters, Amy Winehouse, The Killers & Kylie Minogue.

Kendra Morris grew up imbued with a sense of music—her parents played in bands together, and she often broke into their cabinets full of vinyl to listen to their favorite records. As Marvin Gaye, the Spinners, War, Stevie Wonder, Jackson 5, and the Temptations washed over her, they soon became hers too. She sang along to her favorite albums with a voice she discovered soon after she learned how to talk.
“I was three years old, and I got up and asked my parents’ friends if they wanted my little voice or my big voice,” Morris remembers. “And I did this little voice, but then I did this big operatic voice. Maybe that was ingrained in me, because they say some of the main parts of you develop before you’re even six years old.”
Big voice, little voice, bring it on!
