FaltyDL’s latest album is a slow burner but ultimately rewarding experience
NYC based FaltyDL is a subtly classy DJ. That’s what I like about his music. He doesn’t force his quality in your face or gloat about it. He allows that discovery to be your own. This album – his third – is fresh but it seems like a stylystic nod to a more classic, minimal style of electronic house music. More repetition, and the addition and subtraction of layers to a wonderful effect. Be patient with this album, if you are into classy house music you’ll like it a lot. To me, it’s one of those albums that you have to have on while you’re doing something and have it sit with you for a bit, right before you snap back to it and go “Oh, this is really good”.
RIYL: Minimal electronic music, The Field, (maybe just a tiny bit like SBTRKT, tiny bit.)
DNP: None IF you don’t count names of tracks
Label: Ninja Tune/Blueberry Records
