Leftfield electronic producer Drew Lustman, aka FaltyDL, has long been a favourite around our neck of the woods, so it's always exciting to hear he has new music coming out. This year he's been particularly busy, releasing new tracks with Ninja Tune like King Brute and remixing artists like Vondelpark and Woman's Hour.
All of this productivity has culminated in the release of a brand new album called 'In The Wild', due out in August. A press release from FaltyDL's label Ninja Tune explains that the album is a collaboration with artist Chris Sheen and bounces off the phrase "In The Wild", using it as a catalyst to explore "spatial and technological reproduction of sound and video." Much of the visual experience can be viewed over at a dedicated website.
You can also stream a new song from the record, Do Me, right now, and read a poem also called 'In The Wild' by FaltyDL collaborator Shanghai Den below.
Upon a mountaintop in Port Lligat I found my true love.
We wrapped each other Uptight,
never will I forget so much regret.
Do Me is truth is progress is death is pain is boredom is sex is dance is silence is void.
Nine is eternal stream is people is family is anger is fight is father is not all.
Heart & Soul is female is more anger is ignorance is blisters on sun soaked lips.
Greater Antilles is two parts masculine one part crystalline structures.
Ahead the Ship Sleeps in Danger is Grief resolved through Rolling in New Haven.
Dos Gardenias para ti.
Post-stroke vernacular, insult to salt intake fake injury to resume sideline spectatorship.
Strained precision, illegal decision and fat masterbatorial visions.
Vapid vaper-what never signed up, tell a lie, till the day I die.
