Rustie - Sunburst (2010)

Ever since the announcement of his forthcoming LP on Warp, Sunburst has been pretty much been owning my playlist. To say it's dubstep would be limiting as there are so many styles at play. The typography in the cover hints at the prog/metal guitars and drums being sampled, but he blends them with funk, grime and joyous electro blips and bleeps into a sound that is playfully overloaded and all the better for it. These six songs have a raw energy and danceability that refuses to be overlooked. With Glass Swords coming early next month, you'd better grab this EP now so that you can say you were on board before he drops the best record of 2011.
