Do you like this?

In a recent online interview he said his sets are “about 70 percent original material, which is nice because it’s stuff that no other DJ in the entire world has. If you come to a Rusko show, don’t expect to hear stuff you know!” He’s just released an EP—the first new material from him in more than a year. While his music may still be rooted in slow drag dubstep, the four tracks on Kapow! have a furious energy. Shrieking synths and skittering machine-gun synth drum bursts chase pummeling four-on-the-floor bass drums punctuated by long, languorous bass riffs rumbling through the tracks like thunder. The EP is available for free from his website.

After spending several years of selling his music through established labels, he’s now decided to just give it away. Judging by the number of blogs offering enthusiastic reviews of the music alongside downloadable sound files, it was, like moving to America, a very shrewd move.
