What happens when you mix glitchy house, high-energy rap and throw in some drums and sirens while you're at it? You get a dance-in-your-seat, in-your-face, straight-up banger.
Rustie is no stranger to using vocals to accompany his synthy beats, with previous stand-out “After Light” bringing AlunaGeorge into the mix. This is the first time, however, that he has featured a rap artist. And it absolutely works.
Danny Brown and Rustie have collaborated behind the scenes before, as Rustie produced some tracks on Brown’s Old. They now share the hypothetical mic on “Attak,” a single from Rustie’s sophomore album, Green Light (which precedes his latest release, EVENIFUDONTBELIEVE).
According to Consequence of Sound, most of the collaboration between Rustie and Brown has been over email and Twitter DMs, but this primarily digital form of communication does not mitigate the magic between the two. Brown’s fast-talking rap meshes perfectly with Rustie's rapid rhythms, resulting in three minutes of pure, unadulterated fun.
