LA Weekly wrote about UK dubstep genius Rusko a year ago, when he announced his relocation to the fair City of Angels. Back then he told our contributor Drew Tewksbury that he was on an evangelical trip for his UK genre:
"I'm here to get dubstep into more people's
conscious," he says, toning down the hyperactive delivery of the self-professed sugar-rush
addict. "In the U.K., you can hear it in the
afternoon, but here you can't just turn on the
radio and hear dubstep."

Music journos have buzzed about dubstep
for years but the bass-heavy, ﬁst-pumping
dance anthems have yet to break into the
American mainstream. "Lots of people say
they've heard dubstep, but they haven'theard

Aided by footage from Japanese uber-cultish horror flick Hausu, his creative team has put together a clip for "Lick the Lizard" (b-side to the "Everyday" single, out next Tuesday, April 5th on Mad Decent) that replicates the effects of certain mind-enhancing substances.
