Boomkat Product Review:
Falty DL's Blueberry Records makes its maiden voyage with Brrd's debut beat suite. Label boss Drew Lustman has long been an admirer of Stew Bird's lopped-off, lo-fi beats, but it was the increased fidelity and resultant clarity of his work here that pushed him to present it on Blueberry Records. If you imagine Falty DL's own beats gone properly slow and low, and without the tendency to flesh everything out, you've got some measure of the 13 vignettes on 'Towers/Anointing', coolly strafing between Dilla-esque bumps and warm rhodes fills to whorls of tumbled jazz percussion and submerged, fractured pockets of funk found somewhere between Shigeto and FIS thru to woozy tape experiments recalling OPN's KGB Man gear, and smudged, fudgy soul/R&B cut-ups in a Ras G or D/P/I style. Good stuff.
