Glaswegian electronic maximalist Rustie, real name Russell Whyte, has long been in the shadows following the canceling of his final Evenifudontbelieve shows in late 2015. The critically-acclaimed producer and experimentalist had left behind a legacy of genre-bending sounds that solidified a new direction for underground dance music and even hip-hop, garnering a slew of accolades for his three albums, Glass Swords (2011), Green Language (2014), and Evenifudontbelieve (2015), equally supplying production for Danny Brown on his 2013 album Old. Last December, his label LuckyMe teased his return with a simple tweet, reiterating many fan concerns by asking “Where’s Rustie?” Now, after five years, Rustie has returned to music with a brand new track and visual.


The song, which has yet to be named, is a classic offering from the Scottish mastermind. Sharing the track and video on his personal Facebook page, he quotes Buddha, writing “Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.” The intro of the cut retains Rustie’s love for drawn-out ambient builds, with the latter half diving into an exhilarating trap fusion that highlights his unrestricted blend of everything from hip-hop to video game music.

You can listen to Rustie’s latest track and watch its accompanying visual above. While no information has been given in regards to a new project from Rustie, expect to hear more from him soon.

For more music news, Headie One and Fred again.. are dropping a new mixtape on Friday.
