New York-based producer FaltyDL (a.k.a. Drew Lustman) has announced the upcoming release of his latest full-length, In the Wild, out via Ninja Tune on August 12. He’s also collaborated with British artist Chris Shen to flesh out the album’s concept about releasing his music “into the wild.” The first track off the album is “Do Me,” a crafty sample jam based around a highly insistent vocal snippet. An accompanying video for the track features NYC dance crew W.A.F.F.L.E. — who are known for consistently disrupting any semblance of peace a subway rider can wish to have when the board a train — dancing to “Do Me” on the subway in New York City. FaltyDL will support the release by kicking off his summer/fall tour in June and will play select dates with Bonobo. He has penned a poem in honor of his upcoming album. So grab a cup of tea and take it in.
“In The Wild”
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.
Ghost written by Shanghai Den,
Very best, Falty
