Ladies and gentlemen, fasten your seatbelts: Here comes Rustie! The second edition of our podcast was mixed by the Glaswegian producer who also graces the cover of our new magazine edition – and it’s a hell of a ride through musical genres and eras as wild and colourful as his recently released debut album Glass Swords. Russell Whyte loves video game music, progressive rock, r’n’b, fusion jazz, Drexciya and Underground Resistance and fuses all these influences into a hyperactive and euphoric musical blend that sounds like nothing else on the planet right now.
Glass Swords is a “new milestone of future bass music” and at the same time it is “music for people suffering from ADHD”, writes the author of our cover story. The same could be said about Rustie’s podcast which is brilliant and overwhelming at the same time. Rustie himself describes the mix as a “bit of a random selection of old favourites, influences and current stuff I’m digging at the moment”. He didn’t send us a tracklisting because “it’s more fun like that”. We know that there are some tracks from his new album included and a track by Frank Ocean, but in the end the names don’t really matter. Just let Rustie take you on a ride through the space funk galaxy – you will not regret it.
„No tracklist on this one because it’s more fun like that!” (Rustie)
