Rustie – Slasherr

Rustie‘s ‘Slasherr’ sees Glasgow’s finest back with another piece of frenzied sonic weirdness. We’ve loved most of what Rustie has had to offer over the past year or two, from the lunatic lushness of ‘Hover Traps’ to the bang-on Essential Mix he did last spring. ‘Slasherr’ is no exception: it’s big, bold and typically bananas.

Rustie – BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix

Something a little longer for you to plug into this fine Monday. Radio 1’s Essential Mix has been undergoing somewhat of a renaissance over the past couple of years, fuelled by a new generation of young producers and DJs pushing the Saturday night/Sunday morning institution past, in the most respectful way possible, the stalwarts of old.

The last two sum up why it is now compulsory listening for electronic music fans. The multi-talented and oft-hyped Nicolas Jaar has crafted a musical journey the weekend just gone, twisting together tunes from *NSYNC right through to Bill Calahan. This followed a joyous two hours from HD favourite Rustie. We’ve posted the Rustie one above as it’s right on the money with what we’re listening to right now, bringing the dulcet tones of Drake together with labelmate Hud Mo’s basslines and beats. It’ll pick you up.

Let us know if you think we plumped for the right one on twitter @humandrizzle. Either way, you get to hear Pete Tong doing his thing. The man LOVES dance music.

Dollop – with Rustie, Koreless, South London Ordnance & more @ Netil 000, Saturday 31st March

Who fancies a night out? Let Dollop provide one. The Nottingham & London promoters have put together a bangin’ line-up for their first big one of 2012.

Book out the 31st March and head down to the recently upgraded Netil House in Hackney to cut up a rug to Rustie, Koreless, South London Ordnance and Charles Drakeford from streamin’ pioneers, Boiler Room. The aforementioned Rustie has done a sizeable rework of SebastiAn’s new track ‘Love In Motion‘ BTW, which we highly recommend.

Tickets are flying off the shelves but there’s still plenty to go around (decent sized venue), we truly madly deeply wish to see you there.

Rustie – Hover Traps

Glaswegian producer Russell Whyte, aka Rustie, released his début long-player this month on Warp Records. ‘Glass Swords’ is a record that would have sounded extremely alien only a couple of years ago.

In 2011 it is still an idiosyncratic collection of songs – drawing on everything from 90s trance to video game soundtracks. However, like Hudson Mohawke (who hails from the same corner of these Isles), Rustie is able to take this curious melting pot of influences and create his own brand of warped euphoria.

On the addictive ‘Hover Traps’, he takes the stabbed chords so favoured by every Swede with a residency in Ibiza and a questionable taste in V-neck t-shirts – and decides to furnish them with a slap bass, a dubstep beat and all manner of squeaks, squelches and samples.

It’s bonkers.

DCUP – Don’t Be Shy (Wave Racer Remix)

A little late to the party on this one; but it’s a party Down Under you don’t wanna miss. Oz beatsmith Wave Racer has tweaked fellow Oz producer DCUP’s ‘Don’t Be Shy’ into a totally bonkers tour-de-force of a tune.

Removing the bubblegum pop of the original and filling out the tune with trap undertones, this is a synth fireworks show that’s going to brighten up your day. It may not be that original being not dissimilar from the maximal tones of HudMo and Rustie, but it’s got our attention and it deserves yours.

Hudson Mohawke – Pleasure

We apologise in advance for the intense feeling of missing out when you’ve read this post.

Following a limited run vinyl release back in 2011, ‘Pleasure’ is a Janet Jackson-flecked piece of joy from Numbers man Hudson Mohawke. Please, please listen to it before kicking off your Bank Holiday weekender:

The imprint that put out this goodtimes tune was the specially created label, Pleasure Principle. This has now morphed into the all-star surfing holiday festival in Newquay that kicks off next month, and ‘Pleasure’ is a teaser for that. The three days are jam-packed with essential listening, not least HD regulars from Joy Orbison, TNGHT and Rustie. To assuage the FOMOs, get a ticket here or try your luck with FACT’s ticket giveaway here.

In case it wasn’t clear, we wish we were going.

S-Type – Billboard

If Human Drizzle were an expensive ad agency, we’d make this post an elaborate riff on Glasgow producer S-Type’s name-share with a high-end car brand. But we’re not, so it’s some enthusiastic words and Soundcloud links.

The Glaswegian LuckyMe resident has just released his debut EP, ’Billboard’ and it’s a whirlwind of trap percussion and soaring synths. Courtesy of Rustie’s Essential Mix earlier this year, we’ve been hyped for the title track for some time. It’s music to pick you up off the floor after the weekend:

Check out another cut from the EP, ‘Walrus’, and a recent remix of G.O.O.D. Music boss-man, Pusha T:

It’s a smooth yet powerful ride for those looking for luxury in their car tunes…

Metske – Spin States

Now for something completely different. Metske is Owen Hackett, a Nottingham-based producer who also releases music under the name of Metaphi. The sound is not entirely divorced from the otherworldly sonics emanating from Rustie and his Glaswegian comrades, but it is pretty striking nonetheless.

After three minutes of fairly unsettling squeaks and bleeps, a squelchy hip hop beat arrives and lends ‘Spin States’ an intoxicating swagger that really smacks you in the chops. When combined with these retro video game visuals (courtesy of of Lewis Hackett / Prefix Studios), you’ve got something a bit special.

Slow Magic – Sorry Safari (Giraffage Remix)

Since the release of his debut EP back in May, Giraffage (aka Charlie Yin) has been making quite a name for himself by creating impressively constructed, DIY electronic music.

And he’s now on the brink of releasing his first full length LP, the aptly-named ‘Comfort’, which is due out on November 17th. Based on early listenings, we think he is one to watch, producing some of the most densely-layered and beautiful music we’ve heard in a while.

‘Moments’, the standout track so far, is a bed of synths and looped vocals that will tug on all but the rustiest of heart strings, whilst ‘Polar Bear’ is a confident stroll through a dreamy landscape. Giraffage manages to meld a cacophony of disjointed sounds and make them wonderfully coherent.

Here he’s remixed Slow Magic’s ‘Sorry Safari’, and true to form it’s just under 3 minutes of sun-kissed sparkles and comforting beats. Sit back and enjoy.
