Rusko’s album, Songs was released last week via Mad Decent/Downtown and has since found itself firmly at #1 on the iTunes Electronic chart in the USA, UK, Canada, France, Ireland and Holland. You can read our review of it here.

Rusko is about to kick off a spring US tour (dates below) in celebration of said release and he’s giving fans a chance to be in his “Skanker” video. If you’ve ever been to a dubstep show, you’ve no doubt seen some guy flailing his arms recklessly through the air, or someone headbanging so hard they could break a 2x4, or the very odd open armed wing flap. That’s what Rusko calls a dubstep skanker and now it’s time for you to embrace your inner “Skanker” by making a video of you doing your own interpretation of said moves when you hear dubstep.

Still confused? Watch this video demonstration featuring A-trak and Diplo for a little inspiration.

You have two ways to enter: you can print the mask and be filmed or film yourself wearing it at one of the upcoming Spring tour dates or you can film yourself with the mask anywhere and upload to YouTube. The full instructions are here.
