Wonky/ Bass Music:

Some stunning releases this week. NY based Falty DL aka Drew Lustman after several well received singles and E.P's on other prestigious labels delivers his debut LP "Hardcourage" on Ninja Tune. Martyn's 3024 imprint delves in the Canadian techno scene and presents 3 carefully selected tracks from Kevin McPhee, Gingy & Nautiluss on the "Dovercourt E.P".
