English electronic producer Rusko, born Christopher Mercer, helped popularize dubstep, collaborating with pop stars like Britney Spears and giving the genre one of its defining anthems in the deep, reverberating "Cockney Thug."

EP sounds completely unmoored, veering from the twitchy banger "Like a Boss" to "My Style," which sounds like a strobe-light-induced seizure set to jarring electronic beats.
