Biography

United Kingdom (2001 – present)

There are two artists that are referred to as Mylo:

1. Myles MacInnes, born 1978 on the Isle of Skye, Scotland, has a trajectory that takes in a childhood on the Isle of Skye, low life in London and Paris and academia in Oxford and Los Angeles. In 2001, he returned to Scotland with one purpose – to submerge himself in music. In 2006, with his debut album unleashed on the world and numerous hit singles and sell-out tours under his belt, he has been hailed ‘the saviour of dance music’.

The startling debut album, Destroy Rock & Roll demonstrates that MacInnes is equally happy warming the soul as he is rocking the dancefloor. “I’m just having fun in the studio,” he begins. “It’s got to have impact, otherwise I just don’t see the point”. Listening to his debut album, ‘Destroy Rock & Roll’ it’s obvious that impact isn’t his only weapon. The high-octane guitar chords, heavy-duty beats and raucous vocals of Destroy Rock & Roll, Muscle Car and Drop The Pressure are backed by the sun-kissed chords and Bay Area beats of tracks like Sunworshipper and Need You Tonight. While In My Arms harks back to his soft rock radio days.

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.”

    It's been 8 years since Destroy Rock & Roll... DUDDDDEEEEE come on! To everyone saying he'll never do another album, look at Celldweller, one album in 2003, then didn't come back until 2012, nearly 10 years, so you never know

    Listen to Destroy Rock & Roll every now and again, and its' beauty lies in its simplicity. Live in hope that you might release another equally good album, and if not - well we'll always have Destroy Rock & Roll.

    Mylo left my top 50 this week, for the first time since I joined in 2008. For a man that released only one album in 2004 that was pretty good going. We are not going to get another album now.

    I remember Annie Mac playing your track on BBC Radio "I'm Back" back in 2009. That was nearly 3 years ago, when you say I'M BACK you better COME BACK! I gave up on hoping for your second album, but the rage is still there for giving your fans false hope.
