Leading up to his Monday night DJ set at Le Bain in NYC, FaltyDL answered a few questions for us. Get details on the party below!
Giant Step: Miles Davis is cited as a life-changing influence of yours. Can you share some about the impact of Miles Davis on your life?
FaltyDL: Everything I’ve learned about improvisation, I’ve learned from Miles. [Improvisation] is rare in electronic music – it’s all so grid in a way. But I just love his music.
GS: What led you to becoming a sushi chef?
FDL: Needed money and washing dishes was so shit.
GS: How did the transition into music full time happen?
FDL: Slowly but surely with enough releases and gigs under my belt. Carved my own niche, I guess.
GS: Your most proud remix moment?
FDL: Different ones were different milestones. Zed Bias, Sean Kuti – been honored to do them all.
GS: What projects are you currently working on?
FDL: Just making more tunes!
GS: A musical act you love that others would never expect you to?
FDL: Guns N Roses
GS: Explain to us how you wreck a party when you DJ; folks need to be prepared.
FDL: I build it up nicely, then right when it should climax, I drop some jazz and everyone looks disappointed and the crowd goes away. That’s how I usually wreck a party.
