Performer Info

Rusko: While DJ and dubstep producer Rusko has spent most of his career producing work for others, he's come into his own in recent years as a dubstep icon. After making a name working with Caspa, Rusko began creating a signature style of upbeat dubstep that utilized more BPS. This unique style can be found on Rusko's first solo album, O.M.G., which released in 2010, as well as on his remaining tour dates in 2011.

A Leeds native, Chris Mercer, aka Rusko, received his first in-depth exposure to dustup while attending the Leeds College of Music; in particular the campus "Sub Dub" events. After graduating, he moved to London to work with Stingray Records, which is where he met fellow DJ Caspa. Caspa led Rusko to the Dub Police, a label that would release his debut single, "SNES Dub." After releasing a few singles, Rusko released his debut EP, Babylon, Vol. 1, which began to show his developing, lighter dustup sound. Rusko released his breakout single, "Cockney Thug", in 2009 and it began to by DJs around the world, including heavy hitters like M.I.A. This led to Rusko collaborating with M.I.A. on her 2010 album, Maya. Later that year, the DJ released his first solo album, O.M.G., which was incredibly well received by his fans.

Fans excited by the album may be a little disappointed in the sparse amount of tour dates Rusko has in 2011. This summer, Rusko has only three tour dates in the North America; the first at Camp Bisco in Mariaville, NY. Rusko will then head to the WEMF festival in Ontario, Canada before ending his 2011 tour dates at the N9NE Fest in Tucson, AZ. With so few 2011 tour dates for Rusko, fans that are lucky enough to attend a concert date should buy their tickets soon.
