Today is going to be a short one, my commute to work was sound tracked by the radio and so I am going for a freebie.
To be honest I have come across the name Falty DL before but I am not too familiar with his work. I picked up today’s track ‘Straight & Arrow’ from Bleep and it was one of those that just registered straight away. For those who don’t know, FaltyDL is Drew Lustman from New York and he has released tracks across some of the biggest labels – Planet Mu and Ninja Tune, who issued today’s track. The track is lovely jazz house and reminds me a lot of Floating Points work (the synth at the start especially) which I am a big fan of but you can also hear that US influence on it, almost a classic house sound. Also on the EP is a fantastic remix by Four Tet so well worth picking up the whole ep if you like it. Really lovely stuff
