Ital, Acid Farm, Dasani Reboot 

When: Fri., Dec. 28, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $10
Ital is the façade erected by Daniel Martin-McCormick to stand in front of his experiment in dance music, where "dance" means whatever you want it to. Martin-McCormick is a cerebral Brooklynite whose past collaborations include Black Eyes and Mi Ami, but Ital is not a reinvention—Martin-McCormick's output is defined by constant experimentation. This year, after a string of EPs, Ital has released two records, Hive Mind and Dream On. Though tinkering with dance music is all the rage right now, Ital's albums are deliberate and thoughtful and certainly not fashionable. Ital transgresses the idea of what dance music has traditionally meant—a sweaty, sexualized medium for people whose main interest is the activity of dancing—and offers up a challenging, impressionistic, fractured alternative. Sometimes, it's even very beautiful. It's what might happen after staying up all night reading Derrida and listening to the Prodigy's entire catalog. REBECCA WILSON
