Glasgow’s wonder kid Rustie has his sights set on Australia. In March the producer – who had a rather stellar 2011 due to his celebrated album Glass Swords – will be heading down under to destroy crowds and melt minds with his own unique take on the all-encompassing future bass sound.
If you want a preview on just what kind of an effect Rustie’s music experienced live can have on the average festival punter, read my anecdote on Lunice dropping Rustie at the Musica festival in Sydney last year. Little did I know back in December that the album would win The Guardian’s ‘First Album’ award; where the judges felt Glass Swords encapsulated the state of music in 2011.
So to get us in the mood for what will no doubt be a sold out tour, we asked Rustie to share five tracks with FFF Radio that will be in his bag when he arrives in Sydney. Featuring Rick Ross, Vado, Sibian & Faun, Nathan Fake remixing Neon Jung’s ‘Delirium Tremens’, and JME; Rustie’s selections are in live with his penchants for the 8 bit infected RnB, power ambient indie and Grime that have appeared before in his relatively rare mixtapes.
Listen to Rustie’s Top Five tracks below and catch him along with Hudson Mohawke at their Sydney side show courtesy of Niche Productions.
