Dubstep’s resident madman Rusko is at it again with his third official release of the year, KAPOW, a four-track escapade of dancefloor-ready bass anthems.
The EP kicks off with YEAH, a stadium-ready anthem with a late 90’s rave vibe that promptly drops into the uber-fun dubstep stylings synonymous with the name Rusko.. BOOYAKASHA races in next with a nice deep wub sound and a ton of energy. Next comes yet another anthemic track in BRING IT BACK which effortlessly merges a squelchy, West Coast synth, distorted housey chords and a bit of 8-bit arpeggio. KAPOW ends with Rusko showing off his glitch hop skills with LIKE THIS.
In all, KAPOW doesn’t hold a candle to Rusko’s earlier Songs release, but still manages to capture the fun loving insanity that we’ve all come to know and love from the producer. It’s definitely worth the free download. Head over to Rusko’s site to scoop it up.
