We met Rustie in 05 and starting playing shows together soon after.

Over a handful of crucial solo releases, a split single with Joker and remixes for the likes of Modeselektor, Zomby and The Big Pink, Glasgow’s Rustie has reached the point where posting a new track is enough to cause a clamor from folks around the world. The elusive young artist’s appearances at Sonar, Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder, The Warp 20 Celebrations and our Culture Clash with Just Blaze in Toronto have been nothing short of revelatory.

But now it’s time for him to take the prize, putting out what seems to be the most consolidated, crystallised collection of Rustie bangers since he made his name. The album, Glass Swords, came out in Spetember 2011 on Warp Records and instantly changed the tone of a year previously epitomised by reverberated 4/4. Rustie made our favourite music and surprised us in a single power move, winning covers and ‘best-of-year’ awards everywhere we looked. He didn’t expect it. He totally deserved it.
