Bliss, courtesy of Rusko

I haven't been able to put this song away since I first heard it, a prime example of "golden" producing, not just good technical stuff either, but actually capturing true nostalgia. Rusko seems to be taking dubstep in a new direction, for better or for worst...turn that sub up a bit, and just kick it.

Here's a mini bio on Rusko -

"Christopher Mercer, aka Rusko was born January 26th, 1985 in Leeds, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom. Heavily influenced by a musically affluent family, Rusko graduated from Leeds College of Music with a degree in Music Production. 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 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, Sub Focus and fellow act Caspa. Rusko also did his own productions and remixes of artists like Adele and A-Trak featuring Kid Sister.
Rusko worked with M.I.A. on her third album release Maya. Rusko's newest album release is titled OMG and was released on Mad DecentRecords on May 3, 2010 in the United Kingdom and May 4, 2010 in the United States.
He is also said to have worked on tracks with Rihanna and T.I. and has produced optional material for Britney Spears' upcoming album."
