New York's irrepresible anglophile Falty DL takes influence from the last 20 years of UK and US dance music on a brilliant 2nd album for Planet Mu. Since his debut 'Love Is A Liability' was released in 2009, Falty DL (real name: Drew Lustman) has risen to the forefront of the scene with a slew of deft remixes for The xx, Shake, Mount Kimbie and many others, to much critical acclaim. 'You Stand Uncertain' continues the sharp evolutionary curve we've witnessed in those remixes and his singles for Ramp and Rush Hour, among others, as his sharper IDM edges become beautifully smudged into ever jazzier, more soulful, yet forward thinking productions. Starkey collaborator Anneka lends her clear enunciation to the twinkling 2-step opener 'Gospel Of Opal', and relative unknown Lily McKenzie brings a burnished richness to the Theo P-style depths of 'Waited Patiently' and the Garage soul burn of 'Brazil', each highly successful in their own respects. The rest of the album further indulges his anglophilic tendencies in lush style and diverse tempos, from AGCG samples on 'Open Space' to the quicksilver skip 'n dip of 'Tell Them Stories' and the 'ardcore ructions of 'Lucky Luciano', but equally, there's a deep seam of New York heritage and finesse that courses through the veins of each cut. Overall, it's about as close to flawless as you'll find for this sound.
