Rusko is on fire, that’s for sure. I was able to stand a little bit next to this fire at his recent appearance at the Showbox Market. The dubstep star displayed the heavy prowess of his sound – it’s kind of like if some electronic music is sheer pop, then Rusko is like excellent metal. I heard this especially in “”Woo Boost” and “Cockney Thug” – wait actually it’s pretty much in everything. The audience never let up once either, and danced, jumped and screamed through the entire show. I will see him again in a heartbeat, and he mentioned he’d be back here in January (yes!). One of Rusko’s openers was Kid Hops, a Seattle DJ who is both a radio deejay and DJ. The audience happily lapped him up as well.
