The Bad Boy of BASS is back! In support of his forthcoming “!” EP, Rusko will hit the road this fall bringing his signature style of genre defying whatever the F&%k you call it dance music to spaces across North America.
One of the most revered names in bass music, the always unpredictable Rusko changes things up on his new “!” EP opting for the first time to release a record that’s not dubstep or drum and bass. What you have is the first voume in a brand new series that runs the gamut from the Sanford & Son Funk of “My Style” to the Nintendo raving “Rusko’s Theme” and all sorts of lunacy in between. North, South, East and West…Hawaii…and Canada. From North America’s hottest locations to its frozen tundra’s. Rusko is coming for you.

! EP Press Release: Rusko’s Back with an exclamation point! The Leeds-born-L.A.-based King of Bass returns from a year-long slumber to F-up dance music in big way. Always one to challenge the status quo, Rusko’s new EP “!” is an introduction to a new era of sound exploration.
“This is the the first time I’ve ever released a record that’s not dubstep or drum and bass. It’s not house or techno either – I tried to create 5 fun tracks that fit into no genre, or maybe a whole new genre altogether! …and be prepared, this is only Vol1!,” Rusko says.
On “!”, Rusko’s genre-blending adroitness goes unmatched. Exploring every possible combination of sound, the production mastermind seamlessly folds bass-heavy harmonies into a funky dnb beat on opening track “Like A Boss.” What follows is an mind-blowing array of sound – everything from glitzy drum-work and soaring synths in “Sunshower,” to the ass-grinding “My Style.” Rusko chills things a bit with the bass-wave-riding, “Happy Chords” before blasting down the tracks again with an unhinged video game-inspired, bass-tastic, “Rusko Theme.” Grab “!” when it hits digital shelves on July 29th.
