Ever since Zeds Dead’s imprint, Deadbeats came to fruition, UK dubstep don Rusko has been an avid supporter of the label. Not only has he released numerous cuts on Deadbeats, but he has performed on the label’s hosted stages all around the world.
Now Rusko is back on Deadbeats with a new four-track EP titled, Genghis Danger. Rusko has been producing bass-heavy beats for decades, so not even a stomach cancer diagnosis could keep him from the decks, and he’s never once sneered at shifting trends within the widespread genre. Instead, he continuously shells out exciting music that makes him go wild (which in turn makes everyone else go wild, too).
On his latest EP, Rusko’s delivery is no different. Within the four-track offering, you can hear a quick crash-course history lesson in bass, beginning with the melodic inclinations of “Go Up,” then moving to deep wubs of “One Family.” The tail-end of the EP starts with the fast-paced jungle beat, “oh my god,” finally returning to dubstep’s reggae-roots with “Bumbaclat.” Stream Genghis Danger below.
