Associated with Warp Records, among other labels, Rustie is an acclaimed dubstep producer from the United Kingdom whose style draws from hip-hop and electro. Born Russell Whyte and hailing from Glasgow, Scotland, he initially garnered acclaim in 2007 with Jagz the Smack, a limited-edition five-track EP on Stuff Records. Cafe de Phresh (2008), a follow-up EP on Stuff Records, was similarly well regarded. Rustie subsequently collaborated with Joker on Play Doe (2008), an EP on the Kapsize label, and released a couple EPs on Wireblock Records, Zig-Zag (2008) and Bad Science (2009). Meanwhile, he did high-profile remix work for the labels BPitch Control (Modeselektor's "Happy Birthday!"), Warp Records (Pivot's "In the Blood"), and Hyperdub (Zomby's "Spliff Dub"), and he also made a name for himself as a DJ. In late 2009 he was featured on the Warp Records various-artists compilation 2010, a showcase for the label's latest signees. October 2010's Sunburst EP led to October 2011's Glass Swords, the producer's first album. ~ Jason BirchmeierPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
