Song of the Week V: Rusko’s ‘Da Cali Anthem’Each week A&E reporter Matthew R. Perrine not-so-subtly suggests a song you should know by heart.
Each week I not-so-subtly suggest a song you should know by heart. For this very special fifth edition, I chose “Da Cali Anthem,” a non-album single put together by the Leeds-raised Rusko (née Christopher Mercer), aka the world’s foremost purveyor of the “dubstep” genre. This bass-heavy track, which samples 2Pac and Dr. Dre’s “California Love,” just screams to be included on your next party-starting mix tape — especially if you’re a fan of Rusko’s Mad Decent labelmates Major Lazer, Diplo or Crookers. Anyway, if you like what you hear, get free MP3 downloads of this track and Rusko’s equally enjoyable remix of the “Bionic Commando” theme song over at http://maddecent.com/artists/rusko.
