After listening to Rusko's essential mix over and over and over (get it, it's whopper!) I kept waiting for it to hit a certain bit every time! This bit, amidst all the grimy filthy lovely Dubstep goodness, was so energetic and fun yet fit perfectly in the mix. Rusko you legend...
When i got around to looking it up, It turns out it's "Redlight and the Voodoos"... Yeah, never heard of them either. So I poked around and discovered that Redlight is the alter ego of "Clipz". Clipz has made a name for himself on the Drum and Bass scene over the last few years with his energetic ravey style. Catching the attention of Roni Size and getting signed to Full Circle records at 22. Prick!
I checked out Redlight and he's got some great stuff going! I believe he's producing at the moment so keep an ear out.
It seems he's mates with Rusko so I can't get my hands on a copy of the tune in Rusko's mix... yet!
Here's the bit from the mix anyhow:
