FANS have lodged concern for acclaimed Glasgow DJ and producer Rustie after revealing that he has had to scrap all forthcoming shows due to "addiction & mental health problems”.

The 32-year-old dance music artist, whose real name is Russell Whyte, had been due to perform a Hogmanay show in San Bernardino, California and a gig at MSC Divina in Miami, Florida. Both have now been cancelled.

Two months ago, the Pollokshields-born artist released a free track called 160 Hospital Riddim while in the hospital to receive treatment for diabetes.

He said tweeted in sharing the tune on Soundloud: "They keep givin me free extra livez! so here another free track, made after waking in A&E!”

He posted a photograph of himself in hospital on Instagram and told of his dislike for the disease.

Although it is not know how or if his diabetes have affected his mental health and vice versa, he has told fans that his management will be updating fans on the situation as he recovers.

He released his critically acclaimed third album Evenifyoudontbelieve  justtwo months ago.
