FaltyDL "St. Marks (Sepalcure Remix)"
The duo of Travis Stewart (a.k.a. Machine Drum) and Praveen Sharma, better known as Sepalcure (pictured above), are set to follow-up last year's excellent Love Pressure EP with a new effort entitled Fleur and have sent along this remix of fellow NYC beatsmith FaltyDL—who has a new album of his own coming in March on Planet Mu—to remind us of why we're excited for the forthcoming release. The remix is a sizzling slow mover at first, one in which chopped vocals pop and chirp amongst bouncing drums. Around the 1:45 mark comes the party: a luscious, side-chained pad floats around the 2-steppin' snare and percussion, leaving you no choice but to move one of your extremities along with the track. The only real decision you have to make is which rhythm to move along to. If merely one tune isn't going to satisfy your Sepalcure fix in the few days before Fleur drops on January 31, then make sure to check out the duo's XLR8R podcast from last September in the meantime.
