After making his debut on Warp with the magnificent “Sunburst EP”, young rhythm abuser Russell Whyte (alias Rustie), has his first album for the revered Sheffield label ready. The record is called “Glass Swords” and according to the label, is the result of two years work in the studio - during which the Glaswegian polished a sound that is more distinctive with every release. With influences going from 16-bits sonorities to grime, Detroit techno and progressive rock; Whyte has shaped his most ambitious work to date. He joins euphoric synths, messianic guitars and the laminated splendour of modern R&B, with the ecstatic memories of rave. The album holds 13 eclectic cuts, which should confirm the man as an outstanding member of his home town’s electronic aristocracy. The record won't be out until 10th October, so for now the only extract we can offer you is a small fragment of the title track - on which Rustie's preference for messianic prog-rock with infinite synths becomes clear. However, Warp tells us the rest of the material will be straight up danceable: we believe them.
