BBC Review

A prime protagonist within Glasgow’s Lucky Me clubland community, and rising solo force in his own right, Rustie reveals more of himself than ever before on this five-track EP, his debut release for Warp Records outside of compilation appearances. But while Sunburst presents a clearer picture of this young talent, its brevity is both blessing and curse. As a rounded primer it’s brilliant; but it leaves the listener immediately hungry for more.

Having helped to establish something of a sub-genre, whatever it’s coolest to call it this week – aquacrunk was mooted but recently ridiculed through Twitter by a stateside fraternity led by Flying Lotus; wonky has stuck to an extent but feels a little too sell-short for music of far greater complexity than such a catchall conveys – Rustie’s modus operandi is a fairly unique one. Fellow Lucky Me player Hudson Mohawke has enjoyed a modicum of success with his take on the style, effectively a mutation of dubstep with emphasis on fractured party beats over those painting a dark picture of late-night paranoia, but his long-player of last year, Butter, was perhaps a little too scattershot for its own good. By focusing exclusively on traits that have benefitted him thus far, and exclusively to instrumentals, Rustie has here delivered a defining work.

But that’s a statement complete with a caveat: what comes next must take the formula taken international on the back of 2008’s ferocious Zig Zag further still. Sunburst’s five selections mine similar inspirational veins for their frenzied synth lines and bubbling beats – it’s easy to hear how critics quickly arrived at the aquacrunk term, as much of this music sloshes and splashes as if it’s risen from the depths of a sparkling tropical sea; El Guincho via Bearsden rather than Barça – and while that works fine for an EP run-time, across an album it’d drag. Ten or so variations on the skittering, squelching Dragonfly would leave the listener utterly dizzied, likewise a succession of numbers as colourfully cacophonous as Hyperthrust; but with Sunburst clocking in at under 15 minutes, there’s no fear of fatigue here.

HudMo didn’t quite rein in his enthusiasm for compositional exploration on Butter, and produced what was an admirably varied but ultimately exhausting debut. Should Rustie follow in his footsteps, succeeding a fine EP (HudMo’s album-preceding six-tracker Polyfolk Dance is great, worth picking up for its standout cut Overnight), he’ll need to maintain the singular attitude and accomplished consistency that characterises this release. Should he, he’ll have produced one of the most enjoyable dance LPs of the decade.

Rustie (aka Russell Whyte) is the man responsible for THAT track on Warp 2010, and "Sunburst EP" is his full debut release for Warp Records.

It's an arresting release - not dissimilar, in fact, to the music of his fellow Glaswegian and Warp label-mate Hudson Mohawke.

"Sunburst" not only incorporates rave, acid and electronica, but also live drums and electric guitars. And yet Rustie thankfully manages to avoid reverting to Squarepusher-type jazz-noodling.

This is serious music that doesn't take itself too seriously. It has that Aphex-like knack of sounding like the artist is mucking around, when he's probably doing anything but.

Hopefully an LP to follow in the not too distant future?

Good Stuff 10 Nov. 2011
By TheDot - Published on Amazon.com
Made up of sounds I've heard before (dubstep, 8bit, crazy electric guitar noodling) strung together in a manner that sounds fresh, and not quite like anything I've heard before. There's so much going on at once that it becomes almost hypnotic, especially with headphones. Overall a promising EP, and it stands out in the sea of dubstep derived electronica flooding the internet these days.

some of it is Great, some not so much. 3 Sept. 2012

First off let me say I'm a huge fan of electronic music. From Daft Punk to Com Truise to Rusko. I love electronic music of all types. I listened to some of the samples they had on this album and was pretty stoked to hear this offering. Let me just say its not as good as I thought it was gonna be. I dont wanna take too much away from Rustie because I think he is brilliant but I just didnt think this ep was worth what i payed. BEST TRACK: "Beast Nite" WORST TRACK: "Chew". Just download the ones you like. Its not worth owning.
