With his new album ‰Û÷Green Language‰۪, Rustie takes a confident leap forward, straddling references to hip hop, grime, R&B and pop, whilst remaining grounded in his playful, bombastic style of electronic production.
The album includes contributions from Rustie‰۪s friends and past collaborators. He teams up with Danny Brown, who he worked with on Brown‰۪s 2013 album ‰Û÷Old‰۪, for the hyper-brash ‰Û÷Attak‰۪. The album also includes Rustie‰۪s Numbers label mate Redinho on ‰Û÷Lost‰۪, seeing the pair tackle and perfect the craft of the pop hook.
Rustie‰۪s second album expands on ‰Û÷Glass Swords‰۪ with more finely tuned and carefully constructed songs, like the smooth R&B melody of ‰Û÷Dream On‰۪ featuring Musinah, rhymes from Face Vega (Gorgeous Children) in the downtempo hip hop jam ‰Û÷He Hate Me‰۪ and the anthemic grime track ‰Û÷Up Down‰۪ featuring D Double E.
‰Û÷Green Language‰۪ is named after the nickname for ‰Û÷the language of the birds‰۪. For Rustie, it echoes his attitude towards music, too. ‰ÛÏIt‰۪s a language that‰۪s non-dualistic, that speaks directly to your emotions without the mind interfering with the message,‰ he explains. ‰ÛÏAnd music is like that for me.‰
