New York-based producer FaltyDL (Drew Lustman) is one of the most prominent American artists working within the boundaries of the UK bass scene. Lustman is a stylistic nomad, but he rarely settles on just one scene or sound. While genre wonks will have no trouble cherrypicking the elements of Lustman's sound-- drum & bass, dubstep, deep house, UK garage-- it's difficult to determine what basket any individual moment falls into.
A rarity from the New York producer: a dance set that works as an album proper. Matthew Bennett 2011 Ah, the modern dance album. Let’s face it: the format has lost its way since the heady days of The Orb and Underworld. Even The Chemical Brothers had a stab at installing an album architecture and variance that made sense to deluded ravers.
