This Sunday, Dim Mak Studios will be treated to an incredible performance by none other than UK Mercury Prize nominee Rustie. Russell Whyte aka Rustie has been an extremely influential player in the increasingly prominent trend of blending hip-hop and r&b with electronic beats. Almost 2 years ago, Rustie was featured on BBC Radio 1's Essential Mix during which he played tracks by Baauer, Cashmere Cat, and TNGHT all of whom have since skyrocketed to trap superstardom since the genre exploded into the world of EDM like a booming 808 kick drum.
Rustie's own sound can be as heavy as mainstream trap at times, however Whyte often favors melodic 80's leads instead of monotonous and generic trap beats. This Sunday's lineup also features Mad Decent's Djemba Djemba throwing down a rare back to back set with Colta as well as opening sets by CZ and Bones.
We'd like to give a quick shoutout to I Heart Comix for consistently bringing LA stacked lineups of cutting edge artists from a wide variety of genres at an affordable price. Keep up the great work guys.
