Opposite ends of the Brooklyn beatmaking spectrum come together on this FaltyDL remix of the more hip-hop inclined Kotchy, whose latest album, Two, came out today. Although FaltyDL is more known for his melancholy-soaked takes on garage and house, this remix finds him picking up the tempo significantly in an apparent nod to juke and ghetto house. It’s certainly a different sound from Drew Lustman, but it really works, as he expertly inserts bits and pieces of Kotchy’s raps over a flurry of 808 kicks and claps. Is this just a one-off experiment? We’ll have to wait and see what his upcoming album, You Stand Uncertain, has in store when it drops in March. In the meantime, New Yorkers can ponder that question at Kotchy’s album release party, which is happening this Thursday, February 3 at Piano’s. (via Self-Titled)
