New Rustie Tracks

Posted in Music with tags , , , , , on October 22, 2009 by REAL BAD

My favourite DJ of the moment? Probably. One of my most anticipated album of 2010? Definately. Head over to Rustie’s MySpace to check out new tracks ‘Neko’ and ‘Relay’, which FACT reckon will be making their way onto his new album.


Rustie: LuckyMe ‘Fun Time Mix’

Posted in Music with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 23, 2009 by REAL BAD

New mix for LuckyMe by Warp signee and space-crunk kid Rustie up on their site.

There’s no tracklisting but there’s disco, 80s, new-jack swing and plenty more.

High recommended!

Jackmaster mix for The Wire

Posted in Music with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 21, 2009 by REAL BAD

Jackmaster has posted a mix that he made for The Wire magazine over at his label’s website,

“I just dun did a new DJ mix for peoples over at The Wire magazine. It features a bunch of Wireblock exclusives to be released later this year and a wealth of other face melters. Some of it is out of key and the levels are a bit fucked but at least it’s real.”

Great to hear forthcoming Wireblock tracks in the mix alongside heavy-hitters from Joker, Dorian Concept, Débruit and Guido.

Free Tapes

Posted in Music with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 6, 2009 by REAL BAD

Over the past week or so I’ve been rinsing the latest tape from Parisian beatsmith Powell. Available free courtesy of Up My Alley, there’s 18 tracks of glitchy, synthy, European hip-hop to keep you, and your wallet, happy. I love the cover too… Click here to download

But there’s more.

Another member of the Up My Alley family is fLako, a producer from Berlin (and possibly London) with a similar sort of synth heavy flavour as Powell, but with some delicious sampling thrown in for good measure. On this next release he’s teamed up with an emcee by the name of Niko. Once again it’s free, this time courtesy of Kwatro. Click here to download

The world of music is moving towards a really promising place these days, and any time that money is separated from the enjoyment of the music I am reassured that things are only getting better.

Rustie – Bad Science Preview

Posted in Music with tags , , , , , , on April 17, 2009 by REAL BAD

Wireblock are preparing to release Rustie’s latest EP ‘Bad Science’ before the end of this month. Fact have posted previews of all 5 tracks on their site. Seems like they took them from Rub-A-Dub, so I’m just another middle man…

1. Tar

2. Bad Science

3. Shadow Enter

4. Zig-Zag (Heinrich Mueller Gravitational Equilibrium Mix)

5. Zig-Zag (Reprise)

I need to get my hands on the full version of the title track – a real heavy hitter in true Rustie “aquacrunk” style (has anyone else got sick of that term yet?)

The 5 track EP is currently available in white-label format over at Rub-A-Dub, so if you can’t wait any longer – goandgetit!
