FaltyDL got his start around 2007 mining the subtler sides of dubstep and all-inclusive “bass music,” and has remained one of the more interesting practitioners of the forms since. Based in New York, his sound travels freely to far-off scenes and spaces, from grotty record shops in London to warehouse techno clubs in Berlin to cast-off corners in Tokyo where aficionados of esoteric grooves mix. On In the Wild, his fourth full-length, he sets up outposts in each and travels well beyond.

A 17-track opus of, if not infinite variety, certainly excursions into beatific, sun-drenched lounge jazz (“Ahead The Ship Sleeps”) and drum & bass (“Danger”), which also includes five short mood interludes.

Some mysterious sustained rattle shaking in “Nine,” a nice spell of quasi-conga lounge lines in “Frontin,” some supremely assured sense of grooving in “Some Jazz Shit”¬ — all unusual and striking moves for a producer with a particular sound well within his grasp. In the Wild makes a fine show of the producer’s individuality and idiosyncrasy

"In The Wild” is darker, more provocative, filled with raw sexual energy, uneasy. It moves between sensuously inviting and racy to dangerous and risky, with the flair of Eva Green in a Sin City trailer. One thing it is throughout is constantly exciting, in that tingly way that makes you wonder whether you should keep it a secret from the nuns at Sunday school.

In The Wild” alternates between ambient, spacy interludes and a straightforward invitation such as “Do me, do me, do me, do me…”, keeping you just a little bit confused, confronted with what’s happening. Is it “do me hard” “or “do me harm”? Is there a difference? Does it matter?

Regardless, the tracks keep pulsating, both nervous yet calming, asking questions and leaving doors open for many answers and different interpretations with every next listen.

Be it “Heart & Soul”s tribal, animalistic feel, “Grief”s atmospheric minimalism or “Some Jazz Shit”s slightly more traditional sound, “In The Wild” manages to keep you in the unconventional position of fight and flight.
