Pitchfork reports that the glitchy, euphoric Scottish producer Rustie recently had to spend some time in a hospital emergency room, being treated for diabetes. While he was in there, he passed the time by putting together a new track, which he’s named “160 Hospital Riddim.” (His SoundCloud tag: “quick beat i made after waking up in hospital! glad to be alive so u can all have it for freee bishh.”) By Rustie’s own gooey, cluttered standards, this is a short and direct track. But it’s still an impressive piece of work, especially given the circumstances. Listen to it below.
Rustie’s 2014 album Green Language is out now on Warp.
