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.
