Rusko has bounced back from his battle with cancer by releasing a new EP, Has Made Five More Songs. Dropped yesterday, the five-tracker sees the UK producer return to his dubstep roots, bringing in old-school dub, skengman rap and two-step influences to the table.
Unlike contemporary ‘future bass’ DJs, Rusko prefers a far more subdued production. Sure, there are earth-shattering wobbles and buzzing basslines, but don’t expect ‘#epic #drops’ in the EP. In fact, two of the tunes, “High” and “Emotional,” are downright low-key, melodious affairs.
On its own, Has Made Five More Songs offers a brief chronicle of dubstep’s development: from its emergence in the late ’90s, to its pinnacle in the mid-noughties, to what a producer-oriented version of it may sound like in the future.
