Myles MacInnes (born 10 May 1978, Broadford, Isle of Skye, Scotland), better known by the stage name Mylo, is a Scottish electronic musician and record producer.
MacInnes went to the top private school, George Watson's College, in Morningside, Edinburgh. He attended the University of Edinburgh before graduating in philosophy, psychology and physiology from Brasenose College, Oxford, where he achieved a first class degree. He subsequently gave up studying for a philosophy Ph.D at UCLA to return home and produce music. Mylo released his debut album, Destroy Rock & Roll in 2004, on the Breastfed Recordings label, which he co-owns. Mylo produced the album on a computer in his own bedroom.
He has provided remixes for Scissor Sisters ("Mary"), Amy Winehouse ("Fuck Me Pumps"), The Knife ("You Take My Breath Away") and The Killers ("Somebody Told Me"). One of his works was a 2004 remix of Kylie Minogue's #2 UK hit, "I Believe in You", which appeared on the single that peaked at #3 on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Play chart. His biggest chart success to date came in the autumn of 2005. This was when the single "Doctor Pressure", a mash-up of his own song "Drop The Pressure" and Miami Sound Machine's "Dr. Beat", peaked at #3 on the UK Singles Chart. The single performed well in the U.S., especially on the Hot Dance Airplay and Hot Dance Club Play charts, where it jointly made the Top 10.
"Muscle Car", the follow-up single to "Doctor Pressure", was a hit in the UK and European dance charts, reaching #1 on the UK Club Chart in November 2005, and #38 in the UK Singles Chart. The video that accompanied the single courted controversy as it featured two supposed Chinese spies - actually played by British actors Bruce Wang and Alex Liang - inventing an electronic fly to spy on the American president, George W. Bush. Mylo did not appear in the video.
He contributed a song, "Mars Needs Women", to the War Child compilation album, Help!: A Day in the Life, released in September 2005, and was also featured on the Canadian compilation album, MuchDance, released in November 2006. In 2006, the track "Otto's Journey" was used in a television commercial for Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing, which featured Olympic figure skater Michelle Kwan at home improvising a salad out of green beans, blackberries, and potatoes.
In 2005, Mylo released his second album, which was a DJ mix titled Mylo's Rough Guide to Rave, and was released as a covermount CD in Mixmag.
BBC Radio 1 played a world exclusive of a track by Mylo on 23 January 2009. The title of the track is unconfirmed, however Radio 1 referred to it as 'I'm Back', because, as Annie Mac stated, "he (Mylo) sent it to us with the file titled I'm Back". The same month, he released another DJ mix album covermount in an issue of Mixmag, this time it was called The Return of Mylo, which contained his new song "Wings of Fire".
