Following Rustie’s Warp debut – 2010’s Sunburst EP – as well as essential remixes for the likes of Jamie Lidell, Kelis, The Big Pink and Nicki Minaj, he emerged as a crown jewel within Glasgow’s already-deep talent pool of genre-busting electronic music producers. The now-classic early releases showcased Rustie’s love for obscure Japanese prog-rock, 16-bit video game sonics, icy grime and Detroit techno; creating a vision of the future of rave music.
But for Glass Swords, his immensely anticipated, two-years-in-the-making full length debut, Rustie ushers in an otherworldly landscape. Both epic and alien (as the artwork suggests), the rushing neon strains of bright melody and earthquake drums hit you after a brief intro of beguiling synths and guitar meditations. Building colossal tension and release throughout, from first single (and club favourite) ‘Ultra Thizz’ to the soaring hooks and basement low end of ‘Death Mountain’ and ‘Cry Flames’, this record may well leave permanent marks on your stereo.
Rustie’s debut LP Glass Swords is released October 10th on Warp Records.
