About this album

When FaltyDL released his 2009 debut on Planet Mu, “Love Is a Liability”, it was notionally tied to dubstep, despite not sounding much like the sound at the time. A combination of irregular but still funky drums, bass and light musical surfaces, it stood out and was recognised for its distinctiveness - this was a native New Yorker interpreting his love of British dance music from a unique angle.

After spending 2010 honing his craft and working on singles for a bunch of different labels and remixes for the likes of The xx, Mount Kimbie and Anthony Shakir, FaltyDL, born Drew Lustman, pulls his skills and experience together for this new LP; “You Stand Uncertain”.

Things have evolved a lot on “You Stand Uncertain”. From the very beginning the listener is plunged into his new focus on layered dusty atmospheres. Opener “Gospel of Opal (feat. Anneka)” is also his first work with a vocalist. Although at times it’s anchored in the familiar basslines and rhythm science of UK dance, as heard in his previous material, on this album it’s clear that Drew has been soaking up some of his native city’s musical past such as disco, house and hiphop. With this in mind the album moves at different tempos, the ghosts of dance music past are evoked but never allowed to take over, giving the whole album a decayed, dreamy abstraction that allows for comparisons with the current crop of ‘chillwave’ producers, were it not for the tight drums and basslines.
