Green Language

After a four-year breakin which Russell (aka Rustie) Whyte's star has ascended into the stratospherethe Glaswegian producer/DJ returns with a sophomore effort which more than equips itself as a follow-up to his stellar debut. If Green Language was nothing more than an instrumental album it would be one of the best releases of the year. The organic quality of his beats hint at a futuristic reinterpretation of early '90s ambient techno; "Paradise Stone" and "Green Language" evoke the shimmer of soft chimes and flowing water. "Tempest" rumbles with thunder under gleaming electronica and "Lets Spiral" feels like a beam of light coursing through the heart of a rainforest. But then there are the collaborations, with turns from Gorgeous Children, D Double E, and Danny Brown; the latter track"Attak"is a visceral slap to the face, which sees both producer and MC on incredible form. In a world of EDM pretenders and laptop punchers, Green Language feels like yet another standout release from the thinking man's Skrillex. (
