Rusko’s unmistakable wobbles are officially back by way of Zed’s Dead’s Deadbeats record label. The track in question, Squeeze, isn’t the only track we should be expecting though. In an exclusive interview with Billboard, the producer revealed his next EP, due this spring, is ready to go thanks to his road tests of the tracks over the 2018 festival season. The biggest goal of this newest release is to, as he says, put the “dub” back in dubstep.
“That’s the stuff that people always ask me to play,” Rusko tells Billboard. “The tracks the people always talk to me about. It’s a nice return, and in 2019, there’s no one really doing that. There’s a lot of influence, there’s still the hardcore riddim bass and all the rest of it, maybe like a reggae vocal, but there’s no one doing the straight, kind of bouncy, up tempo stuff like it used to be.”
This new EP will also see an unprecedented collaboration between he and Bassnectar. Rusko says that one in particular “has been a long time coming.” The EP spans five new tracks, some of which you may have jammed out to at Lost Lands. Stay tuned for some full quality previews soon.
