Hot Track of the Week: “Lost”


Campus Vinyl's Hot Track of the Week is "Lost ft. Redinho” by Rustie. Rustie is a Scottish producer who is relatively unknown in the States but his August release, Green Language, has started to receive some buzz recently. He debuted back in 2007 with a 5 track EP Jagz the Smack and, after some of high-profile collaborations, he was picked up by Warp Records, a British EDM label. His first full-length release with the label Glass Swords gained high praise in the EDM circuit but Rustie has remained a fairly niche artist.

I won't take full credit for finding this track; it was featured a few weeks ago on Spotify's "New Music Tuesday" playlist (if you haven't checked it out you should; it’s an awesome way to discover new music each week). I love this song for its slowed down, catchy bass-line and hip-hop feel. It almost sounds like something that could have been released by Chromeo. While the rest of Rustie's album is too progressive for my tastes, I can't stop listening to this track. Check it out!
