To celebrate the release of his new album ‘Green Language’, Rustie takes over Oval Space for a one-off headline performance.
‘Green Language’ is released on Warp Records on August 25th, featuring collaborations with grime legend D Double E, Numbers affiliate Redinho, and US rapper Danny Brown.
The album was written and recorded at 4am to the sound of birdsong in a remote location in his native Scotland, influenced by nature, birds and sunrise. The tracks are expansive and expressive compositions inspired by post-rock bands such as Godspeed You! Black Emperor and My Bloody Valentine, trance, and the Glasgow electronic scene he helped to mould.
The title ‘Green Language’ has different meanings in Norse medieval literature, Renaissance magic and ancient mythology, and many considered it the key to perfect knowledge. For Rustie, it echoes his attitude towards music too. "It’s a language that’s non-dualistic, that speaks to you directly to your emotions without the mind interfering with the message," he explains. "And music is like that for me."
Special guests TBA.
