Christopher Mercer, aka Rusko was born in Leeds in 1985 to a musical family. From day one Rusko was surrounded by music whether it be his families piano’s, guitars, banjo’s and saxophones…or in his later years the heavy reggae and dub sound systems of Leeds, music has always been an integral part of Rusko’s life.
After graduating from Leeds university with a degree in musical performance, Rusko discovered the world of dubstep through SUB DUB and a debut appearance from the “Digital Mystikz”, having spent the past 10 years making future dub alongside Leeds very own Iration Steppas, Rusko connected with the sound and moved down to London to further advance his musical opportunities. Since then, there has been no looking back and his unique sound has taken the US by storm.
Our good friends over at The Oxford Group are bringing Rusko into to my old stomping grounds, The Ryan Center at URI on Thursday, February 28th, with support from The Drop and Platinum Entertainment Group, LLC.
