Track of the day #42

Is it me or is today a little more gloomy then usual? Maybe it just is a case of monday blues, though. Anyhow, here we are!

Enter Milanese, Birmingham based music producer and musician, long time raver and unsung hero of bass music. Milanese’s always been ahead of his time, hence his relative anonymity . His long standing electronic music studies and musical background put him in the strange position of releasing music on well regarded labels such as Warp or Planet Mu at times when few others were attempting similar artistic goals on those very same labels. So it naturally takes a little while for his sound to sink into peoples mind, but it’s very well worth it, and some of his tunes have become semi classics. File under darkness and groove.

Cheers,

Tech support from FaltyDL

The faithful follower of this blog and radioshow should have noticed our ongoing dedication for newyorker FaltyDL and his custom post dubstep/post garage/hardcore sound that’s currently shifting towards house, as his recent Photek remix showcased. Simon Reynolds might be borred with it all, but we’re still young and optimistic.

FaltyDL has mastered the revival of detuned/chipmunk vocal samples better than anybody we know of within dance music. He makes the over the top sound lush and sexy, going beyond the rhythmic quality of those samples.

New York’s Dubspot school of electronic music production recently had a feature between the man and Raz Mesinai (AKA Badawi, an old Helterskelter favorite), having them talk about Drew “FaltyDL” Lustman’s history as a flutist and upright bass player, as well as his use of Propellerhead’s Reason : Drew demonstrate his use of Reason’s powerful new NN-XT sampler—which now records audio, abstracting a Miles Davis sample into new dimensions, in part to sidestep legal challenges, but also to explore new creative realms. He and Raz go on to talk about the analog depth and character possible with sampling, adding a dose of production wisdom to your bedroom approach to music making, while keeping the process streamlined and simple.

Again, atrocious problems in this show as one turntable “died” at the very beginning ! Most of the show was therefore done using one single turntable with no pre-check!
