FaltyDL at Make It New 8/15

Since his first releases nearly six years ago, Brooklyn producer FaltyDL has earned considerable respect among his musical peers and fans alike. Now, with the release of his third album Hardcourage on Ninja Tune and a US tour in support of James Blake earlier this year, the bubbling enthusiasm surrounding FaltyDL is reaching a boil. This Thursday, Mmmmaven is proud to host him at Make It New, our weekly dance night at Middlesex Lounge.

FaltyDL’s eclectic style merit him comparisons to Four TetGold Panda, and Jamie XX, with a blend of garage, shuffling house, melodic techno, frenetic jungle percussion, and funky grooves. His productions ooze jazz influences, revealing his Miles Davis upbringing and experience playing in a jazz quartet as a teenager. Such a diverse style renders him difficult to pin down, but that’s just what makes him so compelling.

This Thursday, expect a forward-thinking, feel-good set that will leave you grinning as FaltyDL breezes through genres. You bet we’ll still be talking about this one for a while.
