Rusko talks up his anti bro-step album

Image for Rusko talks up his anti bro-step album

“Bro-step is sort of my fault,” said hyperactive bass fiend Rusko back in February, before proceeding to bemoan the current state-of-affairs within the scene. “Everybody’s taken it too far,” he told BBC 1. “It’s not about playing the hardest tracks for an hour and a half.”

Fast forward to this week, and the outspoken producer’s position remains unchanged. So much so that his upcoming album – scheduled for a January 2012 release – is set to be a direct reaction to the bro-step boom.

“I turned in my new album three days ago,” he told SPIN backstage at HARD Haunted Mansion in L.A. “It’s completely a reaction to the masculine, dance-floor orientated, distorted mess that is the current state of dubstep. I made 14 tracks with 14 vocalists – songs with choruses that you can sing along to, rather than for DJs to play. It’s the biggest statement I could make, really.”

While Rusko’s certainly dead-on when he mentions his part in championing dubstep’s bastard spawn, the album sounds intriguing. In a typical Tweet from a couple of weeks back, he mused: “Does every new dubstep producer have EXACTLY the same drum-kit and massive presets? Because it sure does sound like it.” Time to bring your A-game, Rusko…

Being someone who typically hates dubstep... Im still going to give it a listen to see what the opposite of skrillex sounds like.

Rusko's early releases were great (talking 07,06), wasn't a fan of O.M.G, but i would be keen to hear what he has come up with on this album.

I loved seeing Rusko live but I agree, O.M.G. wasnt very thrilling.

I liked 'everyday'. A refreshing, yet cheesy, contrast to the bro-step shit that's been coming out for the past year and a bit.
