Download and stream Rustie’s Essential Mix, broadcast on BBC Radio 1 on April 7, 2012.

Rustie is the production alias of Glasgow-based Russel Whyte, who’s sound embraces the sharpness of southern rap. Very exciting to hear production like Wiz Khalifa and productions like Rustie’s as a contrast to recent Essential Mix selections.

Keep your ears peeled for sounds from Baauer as well as the highly acclaimed Regis Chillbin single from EPROM, on the Rwina Records label

Om Unit vs. Kromestar – Solar Cycle (CBR001)

Om Unit vs. Kromestar – Solar Cycle (CBR001) reviewed by Shortstack of icnt.mx. Release info, purchase, and download info within.

By now, Kromestar‘s versatility is unquestioned. With undeniably aggressive tracks such as ‘Attenshun,‘ and a majority of the selections on his first LP ‘The Other Side,’ he is able to balance himself with releases like the more recent full-length release ‘Colourful Vibrations,’ emphasizing on the minimal half-step sounds of dubstep.

Kromestar redefines his prowess again on his latest release, a collaborative effort along veteran producer Om Unit in a two track release launching the Cosmic Bridge label. The releases tracks ‘Solar Cycle‘ and ‘Merkabah‘ use groove more akin to Flying Lotus or Lunice productions than what one typically expects from either of the two credited on the release.

Both tracks exhibit the slow dubbed synth sounds that typify many Kromestar productions, combined here with crushed low-bit synth sounds. Two tracks that are definitely a lot more patient and cerebral than what many have come to expect from either of these two. Not expecting either of these to ‘mash up the dance’ but definitely a solid release from two solid producers whose range make them continually difficult to define.

Check beneath the fold for a preview of the tracks via Juno Download, or click to purchase.
