Rather, as its cover art suggests, it invokes more primary colors. The keyboards and layered drums recall New Order. The arrangement stays the same throughout, so all the modulation within the track is in tinkering with the mix, as instruments drop in and out and sort of go halfway-in and then all-in. Listening to stuff like this, you can appreciate the sense of control that Lustman has honed over the course of several albums and many mixing sessions and live sets.

That expired and my third option is even better. Do you have a studio at home or a studio in New York that you work out of? Talk to us on a technical level. Yeah, for sure. But the idea is that I will be even more productive, and actually eat breakfast and get out of the house.
But I have always had a very in-the-box setup, which is an old obsolete version of Reason — version 3. I have never wanted to even try to update it because I have gotten so used to how it works. I think I am afraid of any sort of change with that.
There is a separate room in my apartment. I have a true one-bedroom in New York, which has a second room. I installed it on a laptop the night before with a friend and had a crash course, and I showed up, and other than meeting my current girlfriend at that talk it was a complete disaster. But I had no idea what I was doing with it. I mean, I got an album done, so that was good. So I just wanted to ask you about your label.
I forgot to talk to you about the next stage. I was going to ask you about the future, but you just started a record label, right? Yeah, I did. I have barcodes and everything, and stickers. I made merch before I released a record. No, all on my own. I mean, what other things as an artist, apart from receiving some of the money you are owed, what things make a label good to work with?
So if I still have this label in ten years, hopefully I will still have that excitement. This artist also happens to be a sculpture MFA student. You know what I mean? Just do something interesting. I think if I can really trust the artist, why get in the way and tell them how I think we should present something?
If this is a really talented person, I think they should get it out there the way Faltydl - Hardcourage (CD) want it to be seen. And I mean, how important is the Faltydl - Hardcourage (CD) visual aesthetic part to music these days? I know you put a lot of effort into getting the art done for the gatefold. Do you have a vision for your label that goes beyond the audio side of it?
My friend Tom, who is going to build the website. Blueberry Records. Boston, I think, or Denver, I never know. Just kidding. It is. Yeah, alright. I watched that Real Scenes New York with you and I remember you wrote on Twitter that they only used one of the lines you said?
But what I think I then felt like I needed to say, and what most people who know me would agree, is that I feel incredibly blessed to live in New York and make a living off of making music.
But what are you going to do? I do, yeah very much. I could see myself staying here for a long time. Or moving to Barcelona. Laughter So one of the two.
I wanted to know if there was ever a point in your life that you felt that you had little or no personal life because of your work and how you maintain a balance. Of how anti-social I was when I Faltydl - Hardcourage (CD) that record? And for the first year and a bit I did not go out on Fridays or Saturday nights, or any real nights. So all of that left me very isolated. I was very anti-social when I was making records, for sure. Oh, should Faltydl - Hardcourage (CD) play a record and tell a cool story?
I sent a bunch of tracks to Loefah through Dave Q, a mutual friend who is a long-time promoter and all-round music lover here in New York, and he passed a bunch of tunes onto Loefah for me and then I went and did a Rinse FM in likeI think with Loefah and a couple other people. He just wants to release the ones I sent him in, like, So these are all old tunes. Say what? Is this the sort of Tony Allen influence? Yes, yeah, absolutely. Yeah, you had a story. I think we had one more question just here, right?
Can we get a mic? Yeah, definitely! At the time, a lot of things that were on the front page of [music store] Boomkat? I mean, did I play this? No, probably not. Speaking as a record label person, I guess I wondered about the whole idea of record labels having some push and pull with an artist to put a record out.
Or a record that you have envisioned. I guess it was just kind of a This is not really a question. But I think sometimes that does make the records more… something? Maybe not, but The tracks they want Faltydl - Hardcourage (CD) release, I mean… it sounds like you know more about it than I do. Well, if I get to put out a second record then I did my first one right, I guess. Hey, thanks for being here. The audience you imagine that you have.
What's the story behind it? Scott Bendall of La Boca did the album art. He's amazing. He's been a friend for a little while and I've always loved his art work, but I've never quite had the budget to work with him.
And I think Ninja Tune really hooked it up on this one. The front cover is my muse, so to speak. The woman. Did you describe your muse to him? I described her to him and then I made him put a mole on her cheek, where she has one. I sent him a photo and I just told him that she was informing a lot of the music on this album. And that I'm trying to win her: Help me win her with some good artwork.
And he's like, Alright man, I'll do my best.
