Two of the most influential artists in bass music history, Bassnectar and Rusko, have a collaboration on the way.
In an interview with Billboard, Rusko (real name Christopher Mercer) revealed some information on his upcoming projects including the Bassnectar (real name Lorin Ashton) collaboration that he said “has been a long time coming.”
It's safe to say dubstep might not be the global phenomenon it is today without contributions from these two artists. The closest thing to a collaboration between these two legends was Ashton's remix of Mercer's track "High," which came out last summer.
Mercer has been hard at work lately. Just this week, the British producer released his new single "Squeeze (Burnin)," debuted a happy hardcore collaboration with Ducky at Sound-Bar, and is gearing up for the release of a new EP on Zeds Dead's label, Deadbeats.
Ashton started off 2019 with a massive New Year's Eve 360 show at the Greensboro Coliseum in North Carolina. Alongside his other big appearances, he was revealed as one of the artists on the EDM-heavy Coachella 2019 lineup.
