After self-releasing his Kapow EP last year, British dubstepper Rusko has become the latest artist to sign to Skrillex's OWSLA label. To celebrate, he's streaming a brand-new track, "Takeoff." It's a full-throttle drum-and-bass with amped-up demands for more noise from Jay-Z and wonky flares of synth.

"I grew up listening to drum-and-bass and jungle music," Rusko tells Rolling Stone. "I felt it was time to reflect this by making some of my very own. This really is the definition of music from the heart."
