Glaswegian Russell Whyte first started turning heads in 2007, with the release of his ‘Jagz The Smack’ EP. After a couple of releases on Wireblock he was signed by Warp, with whom he released ‘Sunburst’ EP in 2010. The following year his debut LP ‘Glass Swords’ arrived on Warp to critical acclaim, receiving Top 10 status in album polls from The Guardian, Mixmag, DJ, Wire and The Telegraph. The album infused the super seriousness of some of the post-Dubstep, future-Garage forays of the time with a blast of impeccably produced bombast and unabashed cheese in equal measure, resulting in anthems like ‘After Light’ and ‘Ultra Thizz’.
After a popular Essential Mix and a release on Numbers in 2013, Rustie finally got round to a sophomore full-length for Warp, titled ‘Green Language’ in 2014. The album features collaborations from Danny Brown, D Double E, Redinho and Gorgeous Children.
