Rusko Plays Those ‘Happy Chords’
Rusko - Happy Chords (Original Mix) [Universal/FMLY]

Our first glimpse at Rusko’s upcoming ! EP was Sunshower, a stark departure from his previous dubstep productions. The second single, Happy Chords, confirms it: this ain’t the same old Rusko.

Happy Chords is a sparkling future bass cut that has far more in common with Wave Racer and Ryan Hemsworth than with his 2012 album, Songs. Featuring a series of sugar-sweet synths interwoven with future trap sounds and hype chants, the track feels like summertime rainbows in the hood. Some old school Rusko fans may cry foul at the switch in styles, but the song is a pile of head-bopping brilliance.

Pre-order the ! EP on iTunes ahead of its July 29 release date here. Also, check out the dates for Rusko’s upcoming North American fall tour here.
