New Year’s Eve is always a huge holiday for the city of Atlanta. The city will be packed as usual with so many events, it is difficult to keep up. The folks behind Iris Presents, who bring talent-filled EDM event each Saturday night, are anticipating their biggest NYE party yet. On Saturday, December 31, the bass lovers of Atlanta will bid adieu to 2016 with the legendary Rusko.
Iris Presents is planning to give Atlanta night to remember, and to kick off 2017 in style for everyone attending. Each yearh Iris Presents delivers a huge New Year’s Eve party, bringing in some of the biggest names in dance music. So for this year’s NYE party, the guys behind Iris Presents have done it again with the legendary RUSKO as headlining artist. Joining RUSKO will be Fyer and a hefty dose of Atlanta’s home favorites like Leah Culver, Eddie Gold, Stranger Candy, Ployd, and more!
Christopher Mercer, aka RUSKO, is a British bass producer who has been a pioneer ever since he emerged on the scene several years ago. For all of you dubstep lovers out there, RUSKO one of the guys who helped build the foundation to the dubstep movement you enjoy today. Looking back at his track that is now 10 years old, “Cockney Thug,” it was one of the building blocks for that “wobble” style used today. After a long hiatus from performing and producing with long-time friend Caspa, the two got back together once again in 2015 to reignite the flame to the dubstep world. The two have been back in the studio together and they’ve released two massive EP’s this year titled, “EP 1,” and ,”EP 2.” Now that RUSKO is on a mission to bring dubstep back, expect a ton of his “happy and heavy” style of music this Saturday on New Year’s Eve.
As a special gift from Iris Presents, they would like to offer a chance for a very special experience with a 2 free VIP ticket plus a meet and greet prize with RUSKO himself. Details are in their post from Facebook below. Be sure to go to Iris Presents for your chance to enter the contest.
