Here is the press for this puppy:
RUSKO – one of dance music’s most outspoken artists – announces today that he will release all his original music going forward for free. Beginning with the November 4 release of his “KAPOW” EP all new RUSKO music will be available for free download through Ruskoonfire.com/kapow. “KAPOW” will also be available via iTunes on November 6
“KAPOW” is a four-track workout that blends dubstep, rave anthems and Hip-Hop with an energy that only RUSKO delivers. “Yeah,” is the ultimate jump up rave/dubstep anthem blending jagged basslines with a signature rave vocal. It’s available for free download now on Rollingstone.com. “Booyakasha” is car chase dubstep; perfect for a showdown in the hood. “Bring It Back” blends twisted dubstep basslineswith old school piano licks and a touch of soul, while “Like This” blends Hip-Hop with chunky break beats.
”The natural thing for me to do is release “KAPOW” myself. How I want. The way I want and at the speed I want. It’s about promotion and not profit – I want to give the fans the music in real time. If they can help me promote it too then it’s essentially what a label does anyway but just without copyright restrictions. The fans are key in the success of “KAPOW.” If you like it, send it to a friend. I just want everyone to be able have my music if they want it,” RUSKO says.
RUSKO is supporting “KAPOW” with a fall North American tour that launches on October 26 in Chicago, Illinois and runs through the end of November.
