THE BLESSINGS (LuckyMe) & SPENCER (Numbers)
Friday 14th October (11 till 3am)
Stereo, Renfield Lane, Glasgow
Numbers & LuckyMe are joining forces on Friday October 14th to mark the release of Rustie’s debut album ‘Glass Swords‘, out Monday October 10th on Warp Records.
This will be one of those special nights for Numbers & LuckyMe: Rustie has stretched Glasgow’s musical boundaries with both crews over the years. Now, with his debut album, he’s being hailed as the saviour of dance music in 2011 by DJs and critics alike. This is not just a launch party, it’s a celebration for us all.
Rustie’s music has been a constant inspiration to us and it’s been amazing to hear how his sound has developed over the years. This homecoming show follows Rustie’s first-ever live performance at one of Numbers’ pre-cursor clubs back in 2004. His debut releases were all presented to the world via Numbers labels Stuffrecords, Wireblock and close allies Point.One.
With current single ‘Ultra Thizz’ blowing up clubs everywhere, ‘Glass Swords’ has quickly become one of the most anticipated albums of the year.
Advance £8 tickets are now available from the Numbers Store.

Glasgow’s talent pool clearly runs deep, and if the city’s last few years of genre-busting electronic music have made anything remotely clear it’s that Rustie is one of the deep-fried kingdom’s crown jewels. Emerging with the rest of the multi-talented Numbers crew, and with only a handful of laser-guided releases to his name, his presence far outreaches his focused, evolving discography. Rightly mentioned in the same breath with many of the most innovative producers in the world, astute Pitchfork scribe Martin Clarke once described Rustie’s music “like a metaphor for living in intense digital excess” – something everyone should be able to relate to.
