8/10 Mike Staff review, 29 November 2012
Norman’s favourite spacebarphobe FaltyDL is back with a new single, ‘Straight & Arrow’, which is here backed with a remix from his buddy GoldPanda. Nice. The A side is a weird woozy house number with some filtered vocal samples that remind me a bit of Gonjasufi, natty little synth touches that remind me of FlyingLotus...it’s silky, warm and danceable. I like it.
Flip the 7" and GoldPanda ups the tempo a little, adding a load of clicky microbeats like a really hyperactive FourTet while he cuts up and loops the vocal samples over some busy twinkling melodies and intermittent bass swells which are totally lovely. It doesn’t bear an awful lot of resemblance to the original but it’s a sweet reinvention nonetheless.
