With everyone still drooling over his debut EP “Jagz The Smack”, Rustie is back with a brand new record. Since the release of Jagz, Rustie has become an in demand live act and topic of nuff internet chat. The dizzying rate at which he produces demands a daily visit to his Myspace to check his latest beats. Alongside Hudson Mohawke (Warp) he is part of the LuckyMe crew, a group of producers, DJs and artists producing some of the most innovative hip-hop this side of Madlib. Our Berlin brethren Modeselektor invited him to play at their recent I Love Modeselektor party in Paris, whilst online behemoth Boomkat declared Jagz The Smack to be their #1 record of 2007. The Café De Phresh EP sees our man team up with California MCs Buddy Leezle and Cerebral Vortex from 215 The Freshest Kids for a record inspired by the two Ds - Drexciya and Dilla. On Side A Leezle and Vortex let loose all over Rustie’s beats, reminding us that hip-hop is about partying, ladies and most of all having a dope sneaker collection. We kept the B-side for the instrumentals: think Drexciya style synth flourishes meets low-end dirty hip-hop swagger – Aquacrunk, as we like to call it. The first 500 records come in a screen printed 80s graffiti inspired sleeve created by Stuffrecords’ in-house designer and DJ, Goodhand (creator of the Flying Lotus reset game). Support so far from Mark Pritchard, DJ /Rupture, Phon.O, Modeselektor, Jay Scarlett, Neil Landstrumm, Mary Anne Hobbes and more. Hold tight for more Rustie as we’ll soon be dropping the Jagz The Smack remixes. Watch this space.
