i think we all know what hes talking about we recognise it as a real thing and hes captured it better than anyone else so on those grounds i think we have to give him a top mark. rusty if youre reading this dissensus gives you a top score for that tune even though its stupid and annoying.

I bought Rustie's Glass Swords album from the Rubberdub store in Glasgow the week it was released and spent a few days wandering around Glasgow in the cold and rain listening to it on repeat whilst photographing the high-rise estates in the Gorbals for my photography a-level coursework. As Third has already noted, it's a very Glasweigan album in terms of it drawing on both hardcore and rap. The juxtaposition between this maximalist, neon tinged, digital music and the grey, depressing, material surroundings of the city in which it was produced is quite pertinant, as is Rustie the individual; it is worth noting that he suffered from mental-health problems and dissappeared from music a few years later in 2015: Rustie cancels shows 'due to addiction & mental health problems'.

An evolutionary deadend, an 8-arseholed baboon

I listened to it driving around Greece in a shit hire car, and it was ok then, but the flying lotus LP from around the same time didn't make my son cry as much or as often.
not an evolutionary dead end. Dissensus took it to a new level. listen to that vimeo link!

The Glass Swords album is similar to the tracks I'm posting in the bassline thread in the sense that it holds that magical ability to conjure very vivid memories of my teenage years, however I'd probably consider it to be horrific, ear bleeding noise if I heard it today for the first time.

This came out around the same time. There's a decent Numbers Rinse FM show with Deadboy and Spencer from that month where they played a few tracks off Glass Swords along with this that sticks in my mind.
