RUSTIE (UK) - APRIL 2014
Friday 25 April
James Smith Basement - Wellington
We are extremely proud to be bringing Rustie to Wellington for the first time ever this April. Few acts have been as anticipated as this for so long, since his now seminal Album release on Warp 'Glass Swords' to his EP that contained two of the biggest tracks of last year 'Triadzz' & 'Slasherr'.
Born Russel White is a Scottish musician hailing from Glasgow. Rustie's first instrument was guitar and he bought his first decks at age 15. He is associated with the sub-genre of aquacrunk, a genre described as an experimental offshoot of hip hop that emphasizes slowed down, low-slung beats, with lashings of electronic mutterings and morphing basslines. He believes his work conveys movement and fluidity, and that his creative process is an "immersive world" wrapped up in sound, rhythm, and color. Rustie's long-time interest in videogames has influenced his approach to electronic composition and it shows in his production and live shows.
This will truly be a unique and special show, as not only is his sound so on point with the bass music scene today, he is a true DJs DJ and his sets around the world have been described as nothing short of groundbreaking
