The world may not be ready for the bass-heavy wrath that UK dubstep trailblazer, Rusko, is bringing to domestic soil this spring as he prepares to launch, O.M.G.!, his debut LP on Mad Decent. As one of the most well recognized names in dubstep and producer du jour to some of the hottest artists around right now, his name will be burning into brains everywhere. For a teaser taste of what’s to come, Mad Decent has released a new Rusko Podcast, with a preview of sounds, his explanation of the origins of dubstep and what makes California’s weed great – available now!
Rusko, also known as Christopher Mercer, was born in Leeds, UK to a musical family. After graduating from Leeds University with a degree in musical performance, Rusko discovered the world of dubstup through SUB DUB and an appearance from the Digital Mystikz. He moved to London to increase his musical opportunities and most notably co-produced “Cockney Thug”, arguably THE dubstep anthem of the last few years. In 2010, Rusko has teamed up as a member of the Mad Decent crew and collborated with notable artists such as MIA, Diplo, Santigold and Hot Chip among others. O.M.G.! will feature guest appearances from Gucci Mane, Crookers, Amber Coffman (Dirty Projectors) & more!
