Rustie Announces Aus + NZ Tour Dates
BBE, along with Future Classic, Luckyme and Thump, have just dropped April Australian + New Zealand tour dates for the mercurial RUSTIE.
Rustie shot to fame in 2010 on the back of his debut album on Warp, ‘Glass Swords’, where he, in the words of Pitchfork, “throws in pop-rave pianos, trance keyboards and snippets of sugary R&B, because he can, because he’s showing off, because it’s fun, because he’s never interested in just turning out another scene-pleasing exercise.”
If Glass Swords put him on the map, then his Triadzz / Slasherr EP catapulted him into the stratosphere and beyond. Combining up-with-people hand claps and daggered synth-stabs, Slasherr, like it’s name suggests, is unforgivingly brutal, a tidal wave of compressed melody that obliterates everything in sight. Needless to say it was OUR #1 song of 2013 and has been supported worldwide by the likes of TNGHT, Baauer, Flosstradamus, RL Grime and countless others.
How do you top that? Well you could also produce a few stellar tunes for rap heavyweight Danny Brown and why not throw in remixes for Pusha T and Bloc Party for good measure.
