Rustie is back with a surprise release on Numbers. 'Triadzz' & 'Slasherr' together make up a double A side single, his first record since the game changing intensity of his award-winning 'Glass Swords' album on Warp in 2011.
'Slasherr' is a sugary rush of rave ready synth lines and epic build ups that are matched pound for pound by Rustie's razor sharp and intricate drum programming.
'Triadzz' (previewed soon) picks up from where the intense sonic highs of 'Glass Swords' left off. Rustie seemingly has more ideas in 3 and a half minutes than others have in an album.
An acclaimed Essential Mix last year showcased the first glimpse of new Rustie music alongside his selection from his influences and peers (from where keen labels were first to snap up Baauer's material). News of production features for Detroit's inimitable hip-hop star Danny Brown are spreading for 2013, with further solo material in the pipeline.
This double A-side single also marks the return of Rustie to his Glaswegian counterparts Numbers during their 10th anniversary year - a fitting home given their clubs housed his first live shows and Numbers sub-labels (Wireblock, Stuffrecords, Dress 2 Sweat) released his early material. Rustie will also be bringing his incendiary DJ sets to this year's SXSW, appearing at the Pitchfork party and Numbers showcases, in addition to Roskilde, Glastonbury, Bestival and the Pleasure Principle Weekender - dates below.
