New Rustie Single “Attak” Featuring Danny Brown
Green Language Out August 26
Currently On Tour In The US
Rustie’s sophomore full length Green Language sees its release next month on August 26. Until then, he is sharing another track from the record titled “Attak” which marries his trademark ear for beat, melody and punch with a frenzied vocal from Detroit rapper Danny Brown. Their collaboration efforts were first heard on Brown’s 2013 LP Old on which Rustie produced several tracks.
Nearly three years ago Rustie released his game changing debut record Glass Swords pushing to the forefront the “maximalist” sound in electronic music while helping to put Glasgow on the map as one of the centers of forward thinking electronic music. Green Language is him continuing to push what people expect.

Groundbreaking British drum’n’bass pioneer, Roni Size, has announced a new album and EP due for release later this summer. Both projects will be released on his new label, Mansion Sounds. Size has also revealed that Reprazent will return later this year, with a new album set for release in early 2015.
Entitled ‘Take Kontrol’, the solo album will be released on 25th August and will be the first from Size for over a decade. The album and the 6 track EP, ‘Size Matters’ (released 18th August), will focus purely on “dancefloor cuts for the heads”, with Size reprising his role as a producer/DJ away from the live environment he’s explored with Reprazent. ‘Take Kontrol’ will be released as an iTunes deluxe album, featuring 25 tracks and an exclusive DJ mix from Roni. The standard CD/digital album will feature 16 tracks.

Fittingly the first track to be released from the long awaited ‘11 11’ collaboration between Guy Gerber and Diddy is ‘My Heart’. A glimpse into the beating soul of the project, ‘My Heart’ is an intimate and intricate slice of the album’s electronic futurism, an exciting glimpse at what’s to come.
‘11 11’ is a realization of worlds colliding and ‘My Heart’ embodies this disruption – from the early exchange of sultry bass and euphoric rhythm guitars, a rap to ‘invite the morning’ followed by Diddy’s delicately distorted other worldly refrain of ‘In my heart, I’m scared’ to Gerber’s chorus of synths, ‘My Heart’ sounds like nothing else, it’s an exploration of the conflicting forces that drew two unique individuals together.
Guy and Diddy’s ’11 11′ collaboration was not born out of opportunism, indeed it’s dismissive of the current main-stage malaise, and was germinated before the current electronic explosion; ’11 11’ is collaborative and combative, an expression of two outsized creative personalities unfettered, unfiltered, fearless, raw, and after four years of work, here for your enjoyment.
Tayi Bebba is a highly conceptual work that manages to balance a highly cerebral concept with making some good old fashioned bangers. Tayi Bebba is an album tour of an imagined island each song representing a location, event or ritual. Sonically it’s a fast moving charge across the soundscape fusing field recordings and found sound with incredibly surgical drum programming. Flavours of house, Footwork and Hip Hop punctuate your migration with a very specific sound palate giving this amazing work a cohesive feel.
