OMG: Rusko News & Tour Dates

Or should I say O.M.G.! Just gonna post this press release, make of it what you will from out there in a world where Lil’ John is working with Miley Cyrus.

[From the press release]

RUSKO’S OMG! PART OF ITUNES “NEXT BIG THING” PROMOTION

DUBSTEP PRODIGY PROMISES TO RATTLE SPEAKERS NATIONWIDE THROUGHOUT THE SUMMER, HEADLINING HARD SUMMER TOUR

iTunes, the number one music retailer in the US, has distinguished Rusko as an artist to watch with their recent addition of his Mad Decent/Downtown debut full-length album, OMG!, to their exclusive Next Big Thing promotion. Rusko joins the ranks of Next Big Thing alumni among international crossover acts like LCD Soundsystem, Peter, Bjorn & John and Miike Snow.

This honorable mention won’t come as a surprise to anyone who has already caught wind of the 25 year-old Englishman’s unique take on electronic music, seamlessly blending dubstep, freestyle, techno and hip-hop into a pop amalgam that has garnered attention from some of mainstream music’s biggest names. All eyes are firmly fixed on Rusko this summer as the anticipation surrounding his considerable production input on MIA’s next album reaches a fever pitch.

Fortunate revelers will be able to rejoice in the unfathomable low-end of his live set at several HARD Summer Tour headlining dates, where he will be joined by Crystal Castles, Sinden, Proxxy, and Destructo in the coming months.

“Rusko’s new album showcases both how talented he is as a dubstep producer, and how nimble he can be in other genres, all the while traversing dub, drum and bass, big-room rave, a kind of hilarious amount of vocoder… and a Gucci Mane cameo- and none of it sounds forced.” – THE FADER

“OMG! Is an energy-fueled mélange of distorted bass lines, acid reverb, ’80s video-game samples, and much more…” – NYLON

“4 out of 5 stars … the 14 tracks on O.M.G. are brash and cocky, experimental and fun.” – URB
