Rolling Stone announced rising EDM DJ/producer Rusko has inked a new deal with dubstep superstar Skrillex's OWSLA label, which will drop the Brit's new EP in July.

The label—which includes other fresh dance acts like Zedd, Blood Diamonds and Porter Robinson—will distribute his music internationally.

To celebrate the new partnership, Rusko—who recently produced M.I.A.'s "XXXO" single and collaborated with Cypress Hill on new album Cypress X Rusko—dropped a new track, called "Takeoff." The amped-up jam samples Jay-Z and forecasts some super-promising, super-crazy dubstep in our futures. Listen below.

Excited for Rusko's new music coming this summer?
