    There’s no labelling FaltyDL, that’s for sure – he refuses them like a cat avoiding water. Every time we, disciples of Aristotle and Linnaeus that we are, try to stick some kind of classification on his music, he goes and changes his style unexpectedly. From the first album he recorded for Planet Mu (“Love Is A Liability”), a feast of 2step rhythms articulated with abstract IDM techniques, to this new three-track 12” lies a long and winding

    Is FaltyDL becoming a purist? Not exactly: His highly individual style has always been an amalgamation of sounds, from funk to dubstep, and it remains so.
