Waterford-born and Belfast-based Myler reflects on his most recent achievements and explains how he became a part of the acclaimed DSNT crew up North.
There is no pretentiousness in your uncompromising, 'filthy techno' sound. You seem so genuine and humble - true to yourself and to the original raving ethos. Do you reckon this is part of the reasons why you have become so popular, on top of an indisputable talent?
Thank you! This is kind of a hard question to answer and still sound humble but I try stay true to myself as much as possible and I'd like to think that shines through in my music. Righteousness is something that seems to be lacking in the techno scene these days. A lot of people seem to be in it because it’s the “thing” or its “cool”, pretending to be session heads for the 'Gram, whereas this has always been my life and I think people pick up on that.
DSNT appears perfectly suited to this approach and to your mixing/producing style, can you tell us more about this affiliation? How did that came about?
I’ve been working with DSNT for about 8 years now. My first introduction to the crew was when i was booked for an after hours rave with Sunil Sharpe. Shortly after that, me and Oisin became good friends and the rest is history really - a long list of scauldy parties, amazing trips abroad and feared out Monday mornings. It has truly become a musical sanctuary for me and the crew have become my family.
It seems like this year, more than ever, you are everywhere! What's your most memorable 2019 highlight so far?
I suppose that would have to be the Boiler Room appearance at AVA festival earlier in the year. It was an absolute honour to be asked by AVA to do it this year. It was a stressful few weeks leading up to it but it went amazing. I've never felt energy like that during a set before it was insane - proper emotional.
Can we expect more of your material to come out soon? Any other exciting projects on the cards?
Yes, a lot of new music coming soon. My album for DSNT has been started and also working on some new bits for other labels i can’t talk about just yet but all will be announced soon.
