Monday, June 24
Le Bain at The Standard, New York NY
FREE w/ RSVP
Joining the stable of legendary DJs that have already graced our Monday nights at Le Bain (Questlove, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, Dennis Ferrer, Danny Krivit, Rich Medina, DJ Spinna, Louie Vega, Bobbito Garcia, King Britt, Onra), the incredible and inimitable FaltyDL will be spinning a diverse mixture of serious danceable delights. Summer's just getting started, so join us at Le Bain for Falty DL and the breathtaking view from the rooftop of The Standard. New York-based Drew Cyrus Lustman aka FaltyDL has a unique sound rooted in house and bass music but wandering far and wide. With a career flirting with dub and techno, frequently led by searching, experimental jazz background, get ready for a deep, sumptuous, and emotionally engaging set for your dancing pleasure. DJ DRM will be opening and closing the festivities. About FaltyDL On the one hand, the 26-year-old one-time sushi chef grew up playing piano and upright bass in jazz and classical groups, and cites Frank Zappa, Miles Davis, Squarepusher and Weather Report as life-changing influences; on the other, he loves clubs, loves to dance, and considers hip hop, house, jungle and UK garage to be as important as any of those virtuoso musicians. His last album,Hardcourage, was co-released on January 21, 2013 through Ninja Tune and his own record label, Blueberry Records. An in-demand remixer, he has made versions for notable acts such as Seun Kuti, Mount Kimbie, Alice Russell, The XX, Scuba, Photek, Anthony Shake Shakir and others. Drew still has the yen to make wild jungle, and one day maybe he’ll end up back in smoky jazz clubs. About DJ DRM As co-founder and label manager of Brooklyn's Bastard Jazz Recordings, DJ DRM has been fortunate enough to travel the world representing one of NYC's longest running and most respected boutique record labels. His DJ sets are wildly eclectic, bringing in sounds from the tidepools of Dub & Reggae, Hip-hop, B-Boy Breaks, Latin, Disco, House, Afrobeat and more....and always aimed straight for the dancefloor.
