Download Tom Neville's Clean Edit mix of Mylo's "Destroy Rock & Roll" that was especially created for the U.S. market. The song is the title track from Mylo's debut album that will finally hit stores stateside on February 7. Neville has included some extra beats and a high-pitched string section to add some dancefloor drama.
The track samples a preacher's moral rant against a list of '80s pop stars. Mylo told that he was not sure if Americans would get the humor of this. He added that many of the artists that the evangelists mentions have been an inspiration to him. "When I did my PhD [in Philosophy] at UCLA I really got into the classic rock stuff from the '80s. Some of those tracks I sampled for the album," he tells Arjan. "I didn't have much work to do at UCLA, but there was a great radio station in LA County. I used to drive around just listening to the radio." Pick up a copy of the January/February issue of GENRE to read my entire interview with Mylo.
On a related note, Mylo is very thankful for the best wishes he has received via Arjan Writes after I published the news about his hearing loss. His business associate wrote me that Mylo is currently well and taking some time off to get better. Please sign my online Get Well card for Mylo.
