Marking one year since the world has seen any new Rusko music, “Sauce” is wholly reflective of the artist’s signature wonky, distorted bass sound. The four-track EP spans a wide array of electronic dance music genres including dubstep, drum and bass, and bass house. The EP also features tracks with fellow bass music staples Dirt Monkey and Boogie T as well.
Kicking off the EP with “Carrot Cake,” the track features a slow and steady beat with reggae elements before the bouncy dubstep sound takes full effect. “Ecstasy Dreamland” maintains the lively energy driven by its predecessor. “Quarantinis” is a collaboration with Dirt Monkey which is characterized by even more hints of wobbly dub-reggae. “Wha Gwan” finishes the EP, with Boogie T’s signature heart-fluttering dubstep.
“I’m finally thrilled to present 4 slices of brightly colored dubstep rainbow cake! Fresh out of the oven. I made a lot of music during lockdown, and picked the 4 most fun & shiny wobblers for this exciting debut on Wakaan! Collaborations for me are rare, and getting two of them finished with my two fav producers in the game right now was a dream come true! I hope the energy and hype put into these tracks is transferred straight to your hearts because I can still hear the fresh excitement in all these tunes. Hopefully, this is a little ray of Rusko sunshine to brighten everyone’s world and the start of more to come. Love you.”– Rusko
