The Glaswegian producer will release his second album on Warp in August.
Initially revealed last week via a cryptic video teaser, Warp Records have now announced full details of the long-awaited second album from Glasgow’s finest exponent of hyperactive bass music. Arriving almost three years after his debut LP Glass Swords, the return of Rustie follows a relatively quiet period for the producer, punctuated by last year’s Triadzz/Slasher single on Numbers.
Supposedly written and recorded “at 4am to the sound of birdsong in a remote location in his native Scotland,” and influenced by “nature, birds and sunrise,” trance, and the post-rock of Godspeed You! Black Emperor and shoegaze of My Bloody Valentine, Green Language also features collaborations with Danny Brown, D Double E and Redinho. The title itself is supposedly one that reflects the producer’s attitude towards music. “It’s a language that’s non-dualistic, that speaks to you directly to your emotions without the mind interfering with the message,” he explains in a press release. “And music is like that for me.”
Those eager for a taste of the album can watch the video for album track “Raptor” below; Rustie will be playing at London’s Oval Space to celebrate the album’s launch on September 18, and will also appear at Warp’s 25th anniversary celebrations in Krakow on September 20.
Warp Records will release Green Language on 2LP, CD and digital formats on August 25.
