Hello, world: Rusko kindly requests that you wake the fuck up.The Leeds-born DJ/producer who ascended with the original U.K. dubstep movement – and gave it one of its first and most enduring anthems, a bolt of foul-mouthed rave lightening called “Cockney Thug” – is here to tell you that music is not about labels and dance is no fad.A staple of the global electronic underground, Rusko has packed nightclubs, concert venues and festivals across the world, and not only dance-dedicated ones: From Electric Daisy Carnival and Ultra Music Festival, to Coachella and Lollapalooza; from Germany’s Melt! to Australia’s Good Vibrations.Back in 2007 – when “dubstep” was an idea known to a critical few – Rusko and DJ/producer Caspa lit the spark with a dubstep-dedicated mix for London nightclub Fabric’s influential compilation series Fabriclive.

So world, if you’re awake, now hear this: Rusko is here to roll the beats, and dance music will never be the same.
