Myles MacInnes, born on May 10th of 1978 in Scotland, is better known by the stage name Mylo.
In his younger days, Myles MacInnes attended the private-school known as George Watson’s College in Morningside, Edinburgh. From there he went to the University of Edinburgh prior to graduating with degrees in physiology, philosophy and psychology from Brasenose College, Oxford, where he attained a first-class diploma. He later threw in the towel on studying to get a philosophy Ph.D. in the U of California’s Los Angeles campus to travel back home to create music.
Mylo introduced his very first record entitled, Destroy Rock & Roll in ’04, to the record label which he co-owns called “Breastfed”. Interestingly enough, he created the record on his bedroom PC.
He’s supplied remixes for The Killers – “Somebody Me”, The Knife – “You Take My Breath Away”, Amy Winehouse – “F**k Me Pumps” and Scissor Sisters – “Mary”. Among his works proved to be ’04 remix of Kylie Minogue’s number two United Kingdom smash, “I Believe in You”, which showed up on the single that actually peaked at number three in the U.S. Popular Dance Club Play charts. His largest chart achievement so far arrived while in the fall of ’05. It was once the track “Doctor Pressure”, a mashup of his very own tune “Drop The Pressure” along with Miami Sound Machine’s “Dr. Beat”, reached its highest point at number three in the United Kingdom Singles Charts. The song played nicely while in the United State, especially on in Hot Dance Airplay along with Hot Dance Club Play charts, where it mutually reached the Top Ten.
The follow up to “Doctor Pressure” was a track called “Muscle Car”. Muscle Car ended up being a hit in the United Kingdom and European dance charts, achieving number one in the United Kingdom Club Chart during November of ’05, and the 38th spot in the United Kingdom Singles Chart. The music video that followed the song invited hot debate since it showcased 2 guessed Chinese spies – really played by British celebrities Alex Liang and Bruce Wang. These two spies were depicted as devising an electric fly to keep tabs on then American president, George W. Bush. Mylo didn’t show up inside this video.
Also in ’05, Mylo introduced a DJ mixed record entitled “Mylo’s Rough Guide to Rave” and premiered as a cover mount Compact Disc in Mixmag.
Mylo’s achievement is a trigger to get a flourishing dance-music landscape within the Isle of Skye. He headlined the Isle of Wedge Festival back in 2010, which took place in Broadford. Acts including Niteworks and Niall Munro mention Mylo as an inspiration.
