With pure happiness, we are excited to say RUSKO is back and cancer free! Back in May 2017 he was diagnosed with a Gastric Lymphoma, a rare stomach cancer, Rusko was forced to cancel all shows the time to recover. Thankfully back in October, our beloved Chris Mercer, Rusko, posted a video on his Facebook announcing that he had won his battle with cancer!
2018 is already a great year because only three months after his remission, Rusko released a new track titled, “Look Out.” We get our favorite bass sounds from our dubstep legend, and it’s like a breath of fresh air.
“What better way to kick off than with a new jam for the mandem…call it a little amuse buche before the greasy main course im planning to serve in the next 2 months tasty m8! plus 26th jan is my 33rd birthday and when i made this track i wasnt even sure if id make it to this one! pre-save in comments, lets celebrate life together with new music and friends haha good to be back – lots more to come
love you. Chris”
On top of this exciting news, Rusko is making his big return to the festival scene as he will play at Wobbleland in San Francisco on Friday, February 23rd, which Wobbleland is the biggest dubstep festival in the West Coast. We’re so happy he’s healthy and ready to play live again!
We’ve missed you Rusko!
