Rustie Teams up with Danny Brown for ‘Attak’

Fresh from dropping  ‘Raptor’, Scottish producer Rustie has released the second single off of his album Green Language, ‘Attak’. The track features none other than Danny Brown, a risky move for the producer who’s previous work typically strays away from vocalists. Danny Brown has worked with Rustie before, collaborating with the producer on three of the tracks from his last album Old, such as his track ‘Side B (Dope Song’). BBC Radio 1 premiered ‘Attak’ earlier today as the hyped “Hottest Record in the World”.

Rustie and Danny Brown have premiered one of the most aggressive tracks to date with ‘Attack’. Heavy synths and deep trap drums slap every syllable that Brown spits. It’s a powerful combination, and highlights the best of hard hitting electronic music, heavy bass, and Danny Brown’s ignorant style. Rustie’s zig-zag production and vigorous, hard-hitting bass push what could be a mediocre rap-trap combo to the next level.  A track featuring two of the biggest modern internet-powered music styles could easily turn out sloppy, but the track works, and will likely end up in heavy rotation as a club anthem. It’s exciting to see the Glasglow-bred beat-mkaer dive into hip-hop production, and it’ll surely inspire more collaborations from note-worthy rappers in the future. Both singles off of Rustie’s upcoming Green Language album are monstrous ones, and impossible to ignore. They either hit you with a wave of heavy synth-fueled energy or slap you with dizzying trap noise if you’re not in the mood. ‘Attak’ is a banger, and if a Danny Brown x Rustie duo doesn’t scream “turn up” then we don’t know what does.

Rustie’s new album Green Language drops about a month from today on August 25th, and will feature more collaborations with the likes of D Double E and Redhino.  He’s now on his North American tour, and will be in New York the same day of his album release, playing at Webster Hall on August 25th.
