Falty DL - You Stand Uncertain LP (Planet Mu)
Reviewed by Aiden Source: ([EX]:ample magazine)
A second album from Falty DL on Planet Mu. Swing drenched excursions with undertones of 2step, house and broken beat. Opens with light and floating sun soaked vibes and slowly develops into heavier club friendly numbers and a few lounging rhythms for the smokers. Drafting in the soft and angelic voice of Anneka and the soulful tones of Lily McKenzie brings a personal touch to the project and I can see these vocalists popping up in many a beat to come.

We are now officially well into the post-Dubstep phase if you’re bothered to keep up with genre names. In practical terms, this means that no one sound dominates and that more artists are off the leash trying out new directions. Falty DL, aka New York artist Drew Lustman, is widely regarded as one of the first artists to open the door and stride out into new territories for the last two years.

To describe New Yorker Drew Lustman’s second album for Planet Mu as ‘anticipated’ would be an understatement. FaltyDL’s sound has evolved considerably since his ‘Love Is A Liability’ debut, as showcased by a steady stream of remixes as well as EP releases such as last year’s ‘Endeavour’, also for Mu.
Initial airing of album opener ‘Gospel of Opel’ will be the first time most people have heard FaltyDL work with a vocalist.

Remember the first time you realised other people had opinions about you? I do. I was about 12. It was like someone cut the top off my skull and shone a torch in it.
Drew ‘FaltyDL’ Lustman’s obsession with UK garage is similar to this because he’s from New York. The ‘how’ part of this conversation is intolerably boring (man on internet finds music he loves but isn’t near to, etc.) but the ‘what’ part is more interesting. Made
