NYC-based producers FaltyDL and Machinedrum both have a knack for creating subdued, yet infectious soundscapes. Thus, this collaboration only makes sense. The track starts off languidly seducing you with snipped-up vocal samples before feverishly fast drums drop to hook you in, line and sinker. With a sound that exist somewhere between house, UK garage and the more spacious, ethereal moments of dubstep, “Give in 2” showcases the excellent results than can occur between these two.
From what we can tell the song appears to be a one-off demo recorded in FaltyDL’s studio last year. Though, it took a mere four hours for the track to reach FaltyDL’s download limit via his soundcloud, so maybe the excellent response will get these two working on something more official. [XLR8R]
