Christopher Mercer, 
aka Rusko, was born to a musical family in Leeds in 1985. From day one, 
Rusko was surrounded by music. Whether it be his family’s pianos, 
guitars, banjos, or saxophones, or in his later years, the heavy 
reggae and dub sound systems of Leeds, music has always been an integral 
part of Rusko’s life.
After graduating from 
Leeds University with a degree in Musical Performance, Rusko discovered 
the world of dubstep through “Sub Dub” and a debut appearance from Digital Mystikz. After having spent the past 10 years making future 
dub alongside Leeds’ very own Iration Steppas, Rusko connected with the 
sound and moved down to London to further advance his musical opportunities.

Veering away from the 
dark, serious side of the sound, Rusko brought a highly driven energy 
and a fun approach to the dubstep massive, quickly coining his own take 
on the genre. His sound appealed to many people outside 
of the dubstep world as his productions became more adventurous in formula, 
sound, and energy. His huge hit “Cockney Thug” has been played by 
everyone from Pete Tong and Switch to Diplo and Santogold. “Cockney Thug” has also been remixed 
by Buraka Som Sistema, Diplo, Drop the Lime, and the Scratch Perverts.

 Now part of the Mad 
Decent Camp with collaborations on the horizon with the likes of Switch, 
Diplo, Santogold, Trouble Andrew, Hot Chip, amongst others, Rusko’s future sure 
is looking bright. Currently setting the radio airwaves alight with 
his own productions and remixes of artists such as The Prodigy, Basement 
Jaxx, Little Boots, Rusko is only going one way: 
onwards, upwards, and far beyond any other young producer could dream 
of.
