FaltyDL – Mean Streets – Exclusive Cultural Cannibals Preview


Wow… I’ve heard a few tracks from FaltyDL, but none of them have moved me as much as Mean Streets.  It seems like every producer and their mother are reworking Fela songs these days, often doing nothing more than reformatting the originals around a four-on-the-floor House beat.  With Mean Streets FaltyDL manages to take the Afrobeat sound into some interesting new territory, including a Dubstep-ish breakdown towards the end.

Mean Streets is scheduled for a November 29 release on Swamp Records, buy here.  In the meantime those of us in the Midwest can catch FaltyDL at Chicago’s Smart Bar on Thursday, September 9th.
