So, this past Sunday I was fortunate enough to experience the wonderful dub step artist known as Rusko at Terminal 5 in NYC. For those of you who have never listened to good music and don’t know the British talent, you should. He is absolutely amazing.
Before I talk about his crazy set, I want to talk about Alex English. English is known throughout the City as the founder of Webster Hall’s Friday night party, Girls & Boys, which has led him to share the stage with the likes of MSTRKRFT, Steve Aoki, and Deadmau5. Hearing him remix Nero’s Guilt into a party song was an amazing way to start a sunday night. Once he started playing his remix of Benassi’s Cinema, the candy kids went nuts. If you get the opportunity to see him, take it.
Now, onto Rusko.
To be honest, Rusko was not a concert I had been seeking out for months; however, once I realized I would not be able to go to EDC in NYC because of my sisters graduation, I decided I should get at least one dubstep show in for May. So naturally, when I saw he was playing at Terminal 5, I immediately hoped online and bought tickets. Best decision I have made in a while.
From the moment he walked on stage everything about him screamed party and British dub. The picture above is the opening of his set and that can not even begin to show you how awesome the whole night was. After opening with “Woo Boost,” shit got all kinds of crazy. For two or so hours, Rusko had thousands of people raging. In the best of ways, Rusko has returned to the cleaner dubstep that he diverted from just a few years back, while still giving us the insane drops for which we all love him.
It may not be the pilgrimage experience that Nero was, but Rusko certainly provides an awesome night filled with mind altering drops and a time warp of EDM styles. Still on my Pendulum kick from a few weeks back, his Drum and Bass infused tracks were absolutely incredible. Rusko is definitely worth the money and is a must see for any fan of Dubstep.
