rustie


απόσπασμα από τη συνέντευξή του στο dazed & confused:
“We're all trying to get a nice balance between club bangers and experimental electronica,” he says on a beat break. “Mike Slott for instance is more jazz/soul influenced, whereas my beats sound like a gentle giant, pissed on Super Tenants, stomping around a forest, coming up on half a pill with little fairies casting magic spells around him.”
The self-confessed fast food addict may be all about doped up, drunk giants now, but five years ago he was focused entirely on producing techno and two-step anthems on his own, and later as part of Voltaic.
“I’d remake techno tracks like 'Knights of the Jaguar' and 'Strings of Life',” the 25-year-old reminisces. “I would dread to listen back to those now though, not the originals of course, but my shoddy covers.”
Moving away from dance music’s dark side, he began embracing everyone from Madlib and DJ Wonder, to My Bloody Valentine and Flying Lotus. His compositions reflected the change, eventually leading to an EP, “Jagz the Smack”, and a remix of Zomby’s “Spliff Dub”. Rustie’s beats now have the potential to piss on Just Blaze’s fire, and make Danja hold up his handz in defeat.
“I’m not really interested in confining myself to a particular style or BPM. I’m quite musically impulsive and change my mind all the time about what I like. I'll use any old sound. I'll use a ukele if I can get my hands on one.”
The question remains, however, how does Rustie celebrate after creating a club banger? Take Lil Wayne’s lead and get creative with a can of Irn Bru and some cough syrup?
“No, I’ve never drunk Scottish sizzurp,” he laughs, “but once I washed down five Nurofen with some Ribena, then smoked a spliff. That got me well lean. Don’t try that at home though kids, I think I developed a stomach ulcer after that.”
