Rusko just put out “Squeeze (Burnin),” the debut single for his forthcoming EP on Deadbeats. It’s a slow dubstep jam that doesn’t ever get too crazy, but still has that signature Rusko flair we know and love. In promoting the single, he spoke with Billboard and revealed an awful lot of interesting information.

Arguably the biggest reveal of the interview is that there is a Rusko and Bassnectar collaboration on the way.

“There are a few collaborations in the works,” writes Billboard, “one with Bassnectar he says ‘has been a long time coming,’ as well as a series of new happy hardcore tunes with Ducky.”

The Ducky collaborations don’t come as a surprise, as the two have been sharing photos and videos of each other in the studio recently. But the Bassnectar collaboration is a total shock. The two are ostensibly some of the grandest forefathers in bass music history, yet have never once worked together in the studio.

Rusko tells Billboard he’s been trying to put the “‘dub’ back into dubstep,” and a new collab with Bassnectar would certainly go a long way into making that a reality. In the meantime, check out “Squeeze (Burnin)” below, and also look out for a new mix on Deadbeats Radio, Thursday, February 7, for all new music.
