Christopher Mercer, more commonly known as his stage name of Rusko, is a prominent dubstep music producer and DJ from United Kingdom.

Biography

Christopher Mercer was born January 26th, 1985 in Leeds, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom. Heavily influenced by a musically affluent family, Rusko graduated from Leeds University with a degree in Musical Performance. Immersed in the world of Dubstep by self noted acts Sub Dub and Digital Mystikz, Rusko moved to London to work with the record label Sub Soldiers, and connect with now associated act Caspa.

Rusko made his production debut in 2006 on Dub Police with the song SNES Dub. By 2007 he released Babylon, Vol. 1 with Sub Soldiers. Steering away from the darker side of Dubstep, Rusko brought an upbeat sound to the scene that appealed to many outside the community. Rusko's extremely                                                                               successful hit Cockney Thug has appeared on various DJ sets and essential mixes including Pete Tong, Switch, Diplo and Santogold.

His music has been remixed by Mad Decent artists Buraka Som Sistema, Diplo, as well as Drop the Lime, Scratch Perverts, and fellow act Caspa.

Rusko's latest album is titled O.M.G.! was released on Mad Decent Records in early May, 2010.
