Hailing from Scotland, Russell Whyte, aka Rustie, fuses dance music, hip-hop, and dubstep in a way unlike anyone else out there. Fresh off playing Hard’s Holy Ship cruise, he brings his album tour, Green Language, to the El Rey on Jan. 16. His specialty is a mix of classic EDM or dubstep and laser hip-hop, also known as wonky, which uses unconventional rhythms, unstable synths, and a lot of pitch bending. Fans of glitch-hop, grime or dubstep especially should experience Rustie’s signature blend.
