Events: RUSKO, BOK BOK, Darkroom & more

Wednesday saw a record high of 90° in New York. Welcome to the middle of July. As unsettling as this may be for the ecosystem as a whole, its something of a welcome head-start to what looks to be a massive summer for the New York underground scene and area bass music movers. Whatever way you might feel about his John-B mullet hawk, neon shades fetish, or his alliance with Mad Decent, Rusko is at the top of his game. In the midst of his Major Lazer Tour, the lunatic loyner has found time in his busy schedule to grace the hall-of-webster with his filthy antics. Rusko is not your typical dubstep DJ. He's a proper showman. Whether he'll show up with a bass, a keytar, a full band or none of the above is yet to be scene, but it's sure to cave the roof in. Brought to you by Boys & Girls, Methods and Mean Red to name a few. Night Moves!

Make sure you save some energy for Saturday's Turrbotax Business Edition. Turrbotax have gone from strength to strength with these events and tomorrow night's is sure to be one of best so far. Co-founder of London's Nightslugs night and record label, Bok Bok has been instrumental in reshaping the sound of UK grime/garage/house into a more tropical, poly-rhythmic and funkier beast. Above is a guest mix Bok Bok did for 1Xtra's Redlight back in March. Badman selector! He is joined by Brooklyn's own Kingdom who's gotten some attention this year for his "Mind Reader" bassline track and accompanying Bok Bok, L-Vis 1990 and Tod Edwards remixes that came out this winter. I first saw Kingdom dropping Piddy Py's "Giggle Riddim" at a Dutty Artz tropical dance party last year. Trouble & Bass's Jubilee is also a special guest on the night, guaranteeing that the night will be a full on rager. The same night, Brooklyn's finest and free dubstep monthly, Darkroom, will be in full effect so make sure to stop by 66 Greenpoint ave. to wind up the evening.

Next Friday Dubwar keeps it inna soul vibe with Geiom and Falty DL! Summers on!
