RA.170 FaltyDL

The NYC-based 2-stepper mixes up the tempo on this week’s RA podcast.

Looking at Planet Mu’s 2009 release schedule, you can’t help but feel slightly overwhelmed. Come the beginning of September, Mike Paradinas (AKA µ-Ziq) has already released albums by Shitmat, Milanese, Like Vibert, Few Nolder, Venetian Snares, Legion Of Two and Boxcutter. But arguably the most interesting full-length that the label has birthed this year is the debut album from New York-based producer Andrew Lustman. Love Is a Liability saw the 2-step template turned on its head, with Lustman’s rich melodic textures and hyper-kinetic beat programming injecting a fresh sensibility into the genre.

Not one to rest on his laurels, Lustman has already completed work on his follow-up album, and showcased a fresh direction with his To London 12-inch on Ramp Recordings. While the title track on the latter sees him pull off a wonky house workout complete with wiggling synths and skippy rolling percussion, “Meta-Cognist” proves that he can also craft lush Detroit beatdown-inspired material with the best of them. Similarly, Lustman’s RA podcast journeys through beat-driven low tempo sounds, inventive new-school UK garage, dubstep and even some wild drum & bass courtesy of Luke Vibert.(more at RA)
