Watch a video for 'Raptor' from new album 'Green Language' out in August

Glasgow's Rustie returns this Summer with second album 'Green Language', a follow-up to 2011's highly lauded 'Glass Swords'. Following a premiere by Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1 this weekend, watch a video for the track 'Raptor'.

A development and testament to his true passions and influences, 'Raptor' is a high energy instrumental that showcases Rustie’s signature sound at new found heights.

Hear the track in full quality with visual accompaniment by Daniel Swan via YouTube below or on Vimeo and SoundCloud.

'Green Language' is available to pre-order on 2 x LP, CD and digitally from,

iTunes / Bleep/Amazon (Vinyl)

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. ‘Green Language’ features Danny Brown, D Double E and Redinho. 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."
