Podcast 138: FaltyDL

It seems like only yesterday that FaltyDL (a.k.a. Drew Lustman) was just another mild-mannered NYC beatmaker whose little album on Planet Mu had wormed its way into our hearts. Actually, it was only last summer. Regardless, the last 10 months have been a veritable FaltyDL whirlwind, as Lustman has followed up Love Is a Liability with top-flight releases on Ramp and Rush Hour, not to mention remixes for Mount Kimbie and The xx. He's also made multiple trips across the Atlantic to showcase his DJ stylings—not bad for a guy who headlined our first TURRBOTAX® party. Now that Mr. DL has become a certified big deal, it's nice to see that he's retained his fondness for XLR8R, as he actually asked to contribute this exclusive mix for our podcast series. Containing a number of his own productions alongside some classic dubstep, skittery 2-step, and even some juke (courtesy of new labelmate DJ Nate), the mix is surprisingly soulful, even when the beats get a bit manic. It certainly has us excited for whatever FaltyDL has planned for the next 10 months.

This is an excellent mix! Glad to see 2-step flavors coming back. Only downer for me in this mix is the Dj Nate tracks - that is some wack shit. Seriously amateur hour.
