FaltyDL arrives on venerable UK imprint Ninja Tune with his most accomplished productions to date in tow. Typically, trying to pigeon-hole this release into a single genre is an exercise in futility, with sounds and textures flittering between disparate samples and tempos with effortless ease. Title track "Atlantis" is a melodic, smudged out roller with a bassline that evokes memories of LCD Soundsystems' "Tribulations" which dovetails snugly with some twangy plucked instrumentation. "Can't Stop The Prophet" is more adventurous still, with crackly atmospherics, toyed-with vocals, sumptuous strings giving off a languid, relaxed air; that is until the frenetic jungle breakdown arrives! Flip over for the hip-hop esque swagger of "My Light My Love" and clattering hats and deep house chords of "The Sale Ends". Highly recommended.
