Rustie - 'Glass Swords' LP out now on Warp Records

WIGFLEX celebrate their 5th Birthday with a massive event on Friday 21st October at Stealth - featuring Alter Ego's Roman Flügel, R&S Records' Blawan, Jamie xx collaborator Fantastic Mr Fox and Glasgow based producer Rustie.

Rustie has been on the scene since '07, releasing a handful of critically acclaimed EPs, singles and splits, and this week sees the release of his long awaited debut LP - 'Glass Swords' released on the mighty Warp Records.

Rustie Glass Swords

Coming out of Glasgow’s experimental party scene where wonky acid hip-hop and slaughtered rap edits are regular cellar rave fodder, Rustie (a.k.a. Russell Whyte) has shattered his sound above labels such as Warp, Hyperdub, Stuffrecords and Wireblock and is resolutely driving the tumultuous storm that’s shaking up electronic music on both sides of the Atlantic. 

Here are a handfull of the Glass Swords album reviews:

  • 5 out of 5 - "Every track on Glass Swords is fantastic... The most high-resolution, romantic expression of sheer musical freedom that you’ll hear anywhere this year" - FACT Mag
  • 9 out of 10 - "It's bombastic, it's vibrant, it's neon...and it's also stunningly good." - XLR8R
  • 4 out of 5 - "Glass Swords is a place where pleasure is the only constant." - Resident Advisor
