Electric Zoo: New York's Electronic Music Festival announces the addition of special guest Rusko to the Hilltop Arena on Saturday, September 1, 2012. The dubstep innovator returns to Electric Zoo after his smash performance last year, joining the world's top electronic music talent over three days on Randall's Island Park, New York City, today, August 31, September 1 and September 2, 2012.
U.K.'s Rusko is known for coining his own take on the dubstep genre, veering away from the dark, serious side of the sound and bringing a highly energetic and fun approach. His sound has appealed to many people outside of the dubstep world, as his productions have become more adventurous in formula, sound, and energy. Part of the Mad Decent camp, he's worked with the likes of M.I.A. and Britney Spears, and has remixed The Prodigy, Basement Jaxx, Little Boots and more. His first huge hit "Cockney Thug" was played by everyone from Pete Tong and Switch to Diplo and Santigold. This year, he released his second full length album 'Songs,' featuring "Someone to Love," while an EP collaboration with the hip hop pioneers Cypress, 'Cypress x Rusko,' is due out in June.
