TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 14th
@ TOWN BALLROOM
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.
