Rusko’s highly anticipated new album SONGS was released just last week on Mad Decent/ Downtown Records and planted itself firmly at #1 on the iTunes Electronic chart in the USA, UK, Canada, France, Ireland and Holland! He’s about to kick off a Spring US Tour in celebration and is giving fans a chance to be in the video for “Skanker”, which he has made available for free download here. Before they make the video, Rusko has a question for his fans, “Are you a dubstep skanker?” We’ve all seen that “move” before, but what exactly is it? You’re at a dubstep show and take a look around to see one guy flailing his arms recklessly through the air, another person headbanging so hard they could break a 2×4, and then of course…the open armed wing flap. RUSKO is giving everyone the chance to embrace their inner-“Skanker” and let their own interpretation of that feeling when you hear dubstep be shown to the world. Watch a video demonstration featuring A-trak and Diplo here. Fans have two ways to enter, they can print the mask and be filmed or film themselves wearing it at one of the upcoming Spring tour dates or they can film themselves with the mask anywhere and upload to YouTube. The full instructions are at ruskoonfire.com/skankervideo . The winning submissions will be chosen at the end of the spring tour and placed in the official “SKANKER” video.
Rusko’s new album, SONGS, has been receiving rave reviews with Billboard declaring it “ guilt-free bass bliss for the post-genre generation” and Rolling Stone giving it three and half stars. These are the songs that will dominate festivals and dance-floors this year and beyond! At the center of the adventurous and exciting sound of SONGS is Rusko’s virtuosic ability to tackle and re-imagine a variety of genres.
