Boomkat Product Review:
We’ve been banging on about Rustie since ‘Jagz The Smack’ had our jaws dragging on the lino back in ’07, and it’s hard to believe it’s taken him this long to get an album together.
In the years since ‘Jagz The Smack’ we’ve seen the digital glitch experiments replaced by an FM synthesis fetish and an eye on 80s stadium pop – but this is knocked so far into the contemporary rap template it’s hard to know where one begins and the other ends. Take album highlight ‘Hover Traps’ for example, which kicks off with a slap-bass intro straight outta Seinfeld then bashes it gruesomely into a kind of rap-trance. AraabMUSIK may have jumpstarted the crossover with ‘Electronic Dreams’, but Rustie makes it his own; nobody else would have the balls to use the sounds he does, and to be quite honest nobody else would manage it with the same finesse.
These are club tracks, but with a kind of unpretentious trickery you rarely hear in contemporary pop. ‘Glass Swords’ seems totally out of time, and while it sort of fits in on some level with the electronic instrumentals ‘thing’, it’s all and neither – it might be that Rustie has thrown so much into the mix he’s ended up with something totally new. If you want a record that will put a huge grin on yer face - this is it.
