Drew Lustman covers AFX’s “Every Day”

Ahead of the release of his new album on Planet Mu, Drew Lustman (aka FaltyDL) shares a cover version of Richard D. James’ Every Day. The original is taken from the 1995 AFX release Hangable Auto Bulb 2 and is also part of Warp’s reissue on CD.

The Drew Lustman album “The Crystal Cowboy” will be out April 20, snippets can be heard on the Planet Mu website.

FaltyDL – Do Me (Bruk Mix)

Following his album In The Wild, Drew Lustman is readying a new EP with remixes by the likes of μ-Ziq, Blueberry-signed Brrd, Los Angeles-based E+E, and remixes by FaltyDL himself. Eight tracks in total, the EP called “///I\II\\\\” (yes, really!) will be out on November 27, 2014 via Ninja Tune.A1. Greater Antilles VIP

Update: Added tracklist

FaltyDL – 404 FFF

I guess I have been out of the habit to buy CDs for many years by now, but I remember the inexplicable practice to put extra tracks on the Japanese version of almost every album. And how many I bought just to get them. These it’s a bit easier to catch a glimpse of this continuing practice. FaltyDL for instance shared the bonus track of his excellent new album In The Wild on his SoundCloud profile. Judge for yourself whether it’s a worthy addition or just a random extra to please the industry.

Oh, and since we’re at it, don’t miss the FaltyDL guestmix on the latest Beats In Space radio-show (or listen back to his previous one!)

FaltyDL – In The Wild

New York producer Drew Lustman aka FaltyDL has been teasing us with tracks from his new album, “In The Wild”, for some weeks now, but the wait finally comes to an end. The much awaited follow-up to last year’s Hardcourage will be available in record stores around the world starting on Monday. As he mentioned himself on last night’s Swamp81 show, he feels he returned to form, had a very productive year and so the album was finished in not time (“return to form”, can you believe he said that?!) I just had a first listen myself, and it’s nothing short of a great record, possibly his most diverse to date. But why don’t you give listen for yourself, aside from Spotify you can do so on the New York Times’ Press Play without having to sign up for anything.

Pre-orders for the album are available directly from Ninja Tune, Bleep or iTunes.

Also make sure to listen to the radio show I mentioned before, the interview starts at about 29:40 and Drew starts his mix at 35:56.

Dego – Nuts!

There you have it, after much rumor the first Dego 12-inch on FaltyDL’s Blueberry Records is coming out at the end of July. “Nuts!” is the first full preview available and the title tune of the 4-track EP. That’s three new tracks from Dego plus a remix by FaltyDL himself. Pre-order spotted at Juno, out on July 31st, 2014!

Update A previous version of this post claimed June 31st to be the release date. Well, obviously there is no such day!

Also, Shift pointed me to the FaltyDL Remix, which was premiered on Boiler Rooms Debuts the other day.

FaltyDL – Huff & Puff Bruk

Everyone following FaltyDL‘s doings on Twitter might have noticed the NYC’s producers love for Dego‘s musical output. Following various tracks popping up in his DJ mixes, this love first manifested on Falty’s She Sleeps, which was treated with remixes from 2000black, and –if I remember correctly– an announcement for a future Dego release on Blueberry Recordings. This week though, with the release of a new 12-inch on Swamp81, FaltyDL seems to pay a special homage on the track Huff & Puff Bruk which instantly reminded me of the original version of Oscar’s Shed and Da One Away.

The new 12-inch marks Drew Lustman’s return to the Loefah-operated label, his first since the two Mean Streets releases came out, both of the now selling for ridiculous prices. Let this just be a reminder on how quick these might sell!

FaltyDL – ……..

A couple of years ago, I called Drew Lustman (aka FaltyDL) the rightful successor to Domu, a statement that’s probably a bit bold. Sure, every now and then you can hear a slice of broken beat in his productions, but Drew has always been interested in exploring different kinds of music: garage, dubstep, house, or even IDM. It’s probably the constant experimenting, stretching the boundaries of genres, the drive of the beats and the subliminal melancholic undertone that makes me draw such a comparison.

Above you can hear one a new track by the NYC-based producer and I think confirms all that I’ve said in the first paragraph. No additional information has been supplied, but I have some doubt that it’s taken from his forthcoming album. Speaking of which, Hardcourage will be out on January 22, 2013. A first single, Straight & Arrow, is already available in stores and it comes with a wonderful remix by Four Tet.

Alice Russell – Heartbreaker (FaltyDL Remix)

It’s no secret that NYC’s Drew Lustman (aka FaltyDL) has a crush on broken beat and you could hear that in some of his previous productions. His latest is a remix for Alice Russell (oh, btw) coming out today on Brighton’s Tru Thoughts. You can buy the Heartbreaker EP, including another remix by Parisian Yakine, on Bleep or iTunes.

FaltyDL – Straight & Arrow

Now that the new FaltyDL EP with the brilliant Four Tet remix is almost out, Pitchfork premieres the video for its title track. It was directed by Japanese artist Daito Manabe, who you might know from his stunning electric stimulus videos on YouTube.

In other news, Pitchfork also revealed further details on the forthcoming FaltyDL album Hardcourage on Ninja Tune.

Beats in Space with FaltyDL

When I first came across FaltyDL circa 2009 (remember Party or To London?), I thought I discovered another cool UK producer. Turned out he was New York-based, but like Sepalcure, he had a very London sound to him. Since then, he has shown to be way more versatile to be pigeonholed, and he continuously proves so on his releases for Planet Mu and Ninja Tune. Another side of that versatility can be found in his DJ-sets, like this mixtape for latest Beats in Space radio show.01. FaltyDL – Spanish Fly

FaltyDL – Gospel of Opal

The new FaltyDL video offers a first glimpse to his new album You Stand Uncertain, due for a release on Planet Mu at the end of the month.

You might remember singer Anneka from her previous engagements with Planet Mu artists Starkey and Ital Tek before.

More previews from You Stand Uncertain are now available on the Planet Mu website. The record will be out March 28, 2011 on all formats.

Ital Tek – Moment in Blue (FaltyDL Remix)

I always loved the asian mood of the original, which is probably my favourite on Ital Tek’s Midnight Colour album, now FaltyDL has uploaded his remix of the song to his SoundCloud.

You have probably heard this one already, it was released shortly after the album. If you want to get physical on this, get the 12-inch from Planet Mu, it comes with a remix by Ikonika on the flipside. Digital releases are also available!

Gonjasufi – Stardustin (FaltyDL Rescue)

I just had to share this track with you! It’s a remix of Gonjasufi‘s Stardustin courtesy of FaltyDL and it’s one funky reincarnation.

This is the bonus track of the recently released The Caliph’s Tea Party album and the only place where you can buy it is on iTunes.
