With the release of his debut album Glass Swords last year, Rustie went from being an underground treasure in the UK to the face of an entire musical movement. When asked what a Rustie song sounds like, no explanation will contain less then 6 genres referenced and 5 emotions evoked. And it is this complex composition of sounds that has led critics to place Rustie at the forefront of the “maximalist” movement in electronic music.
In a December 2011 article for Pitchfork, Simon Reynolds details the evolution of this maximalist shift and why Glass Swords is “one of the year's great albums.” A sentiment obviously shared by many, as Glass Swords made several “Best of the Year” lists and MTV Hive affirmed it was “one of the best records in any genre this year, blinding with ambition and scope, but utterly cohesive and magical.” The album also garnered a Guardian First Album Award beating out fierce competition like James Blake and SBTRKT. Of the decision, the Guardian stated that “more than any other album on the list, Rustie's Glass Swords felt like it summed up the state of music in the last twelve months…”
The last twelve months has only been the beginning though, with Rustie currently topping BBC radio charts and contributing an installment to its legendary Essential Mix series just last week. Now for the first time since the album’s release Rustie is coming to the US for a handful of shows which will be an experience not to be missed.
Although born in the city of Glasgow, Scotland, Kode9 is genetically a junglist. He started DJing in 1990 at the age of 16, playing a fusion of reggae, breaks, hip hop, jazz, funk and house. He was subsequently swept up by the emergence of the breakbeat hardcore, jungle and drum’n’bass scenes, and has been rinsin’ breaks, ragga chat and bubblin’ basslines ever since. DJing across the UK during the 90s, from Edinburgh, to Coventry, Kode9 migrated to London in 1997, suffering infection to darker strains of the emergent 2step garage scene.
