Britney Has An Interesting New Collaborator

Inneresting!

Rusko AKA Chris Mercer is one of the UK's most prominent dubstep producers and now he is collaborating with Miz Britney Spears!

So what is dubstep? Mercer explains:

"Dub has a pumping underbeat but it's really quite slow and in dub reggae the main focus of the song is the bass. [In] Dubstep the main focus of the track is the bass line and the half-time beat.

"It's not superdeep, you don't listen to it on your iPod in bed with your eyes closed. It's for jumping up and down and getting wild. Dubstep has become the punk rock of the electronic-music world. Dubstep is … Bang!"

Sounds intense!

Mercer has already produced songs for both Rihanna and T.I. and now he's going to work on the upcoming Britney record! He says:

"They approach me because they want me to do what I do. They don't want me to make a cheesy pop record. I just want to be known for my beats. It's simple. What you see is what you get. Bang! The music."

This could be good!

    HE'SS SELLING OUT!



  2. 2

    CANT WAIT IS GOING TO BE AN AMAZING ALBUM LOVE MY BRITBRIT



  3. 3

    he's not selling out, he's getting the attention and money he deserves, and he gets to do something new. get over it.



  4. 4

    He is amazing… and dub step has been growing underground for a while now. Especially in LA, I love Rusko… Amazing beats, and SKREAM will be the next to work outside the dub step world, I can feel it!!! Insane music is about to be heard by more than just the underground world.



  5. 5

    WHO?



  6. 6

    I love dubstep and rusko, benga, skream, caspa!!!!!! LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  7. 7

    This is nothing new for her. She did a dubstep inspired song on blackout…. "freakshow".



  8. 8

    dubstep is a sham. the fly by night hipster trend. it will fall to the way side as "speed garage" did in the late 90s. its always been about the house music. always will be.



  9. 9

    It's gonna be AMAZING!! p.s. she looks adorable



  10. 10

    Nice outfit. Seriously, I shop at Stein Mart and look like a million bucks compared to this hack. UHG! Why does she always look like she got her clothing at a garage sale?



  11. 11

    FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!
    R.I.P, Dubstep …

    This is proof that all music goes to hell.



  12. 12

    HELL YEAH! I LOVE DUBSTEP. King Caspa is obviously my fav :) And it is not a "fly by night hipster trend" it has been around since the late 90's, early 2000's and I have been a faithful listener ever since. Can't wait for the dub invasion



  13. 13

    Welll….this oughta be interesting :)

    Re: courtney is the best – Would you rather the masses listening to shit music and a few listening to the good stuff then? Nice logic!



  15. 15

    What the hell is she wearing? Seriously, this gal should not be allowed to dress herself.



  16. 16

    dubstep & britney…oh hell…that has huge mistake written all over it.



  17. 17

    They can say whatever they want about Brit, but she is and will change with the times for the better. Her music only gets better and leaves us wanting more. Very very smart business woman!

    Additional background noise to drown out Britney's "squirrel on helium" voice? Now if her managers could figure out a way to distract from her "dancing" or gyrating and arm flapping…she MIGHT almost pass as having a modicum of talent. I agree with the others about the outfit…she always looks like she's wearing rejects/seconds from The Salvation Army outlet.



  19. 19

    WOW B-GIRL IS ROCKING HER REAL HAIR!!! FINALLY NO NASTY LOOKING EXTENTIONS…… SHE CAN ROCK SHORT HAIR 2….. LOOKS NICE BUT TOOOOO BLONDE THOUGH……



  20. 20

    Re: THE.SWEET.CYNN – AGREE WITH YOU EVER MUSIC ONLY GETS BETTER……



  21. 21

    NOOOOOOOO!!!Why in god's name is this auto tune trashy bitch ruining a unique genre?! Dubstep will have no credibility after this…



  22. 22

    Re: Faux – dubstep is somthing different and refreshing and this is just going to ruin it by trying to mix the genere to pop



  23. 23

    Nooooo!!!!!

    Rusko is amazing, Britney Spears sucks. This is a sad day for dub steppers.



  24. 24

    What a stunning *ensemble*
    Who knew old restaurant tableclothes could be sewn together to create such satorial marvels



  25. 25

    i want that album so bad.



  26. 26

    it's like she puts the most random articles of clothing together that have NOTHING to do with each other….almost like she is drawn to outfits that make absolutely no sense whatsoever… PLEASE HIRE A STYLIST



  27. 27

    Seriously, with all her money she has THE WORST taste in clothes. She does not know how to dress herself with any sense of class.



  28. 28

    YES!! Can't wait to hear it!! Britney is one of the very few pop artists that can rock the urban beat and be good at it!! I'm sick of the miley/christina pop sound… Lady Gaga's good at it so let her be in charge of that!! I hope Brits new album has a Boys/I'm a slave/Hookup/blackout vibe too it!!!



  29. 29

    RUSKOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    FUCK YEAHHH

    you know whatever he does he will mothafuckin kill that shit.

    it will be awesome.

    and i heard a dub version of womanizer & it was great.

    Re: goddamnjesus – They'll spin a few as another part of their arsenal, but overall I agree with you. I can only take so much dubstep; my brain gets pissed off waiting for the beat after a while, and then I crave more traditional timing. It would be fun to sing to, and a good stretch for her vocally.



  31. 31

    ummm…another WHEN YOU GON PULL IT?

    thanks but no thanks.

  32. @v@ says – reply to this


    32

    Trouble is, it's all they're starting to play in a lot of the clubs. They did that with disco, too, and chased all the liquor buying rockers away. Mix it up, because in this economic climate, customers are dollars. It's not all about the dj's trendyego.



  33. 33

    Wasn't 'Freakshow' from Blackout classed as Dubstep? That song is awesome!

  34. albes says – reply to this

    Re: pinkmafia – You don´t know a shit about dubstep. Britney already did a dubstep inspired song on blackout…. "freakshow".
    She was one of the first Pop artist to do it. Get Over it.



  35. 35

    Does anyone else think she has that "falling back" look to her? She hadn't looked like she was with it for the last month or so. I think she's having another episode. Anyone else?



  36. 36

    I'm so excited about this new album! Love freakshow, so this is probably going to be awesome:D



  37. 37

    I thought it was trainwreck Courtney Love in this flick…



  38. 38

    It dosent matter what the beat sounds like. She will, as ALWAYS, sound like a chipmunk with their tail caught in a door.



  39. 39

    fuck sounds awesome!!!how can you not know what dubstep is? britney+dubstep wow thats like..a whole new invention!amazing i love this!hope its going to be legendary :) you go brit brit!



  40. 40

    When artists start relying on gimmicks or trends to sell their music, they are done.



  41. 41

    Riding the crazy train



  42. 42

    'Freakshow' isn't dubstep ffs!!



  43. 43

    Doesn't matter - - she sounds the same in all of her "music" - - nasally and A LOT of studio mixing.



  44. 44

    Sounds intense? Sounds like some trivial difference on an already super-fractured genre of music.



  45. 45

    "This could be good!" And, yet again, it could be shit!

    Since pretending to date Our Lady of Cheetos is embarrassing enough, her boyfriend Jason Trawick has turned in his resignation letter as her main TV agent. Jason had to write his resignation in horsey sauce on the back of an Arby's sandwich wrapper so Brit Brit would pay attention it. And she did so now Jason is strictly nibbling on Brit Brit's Double Down and nothing more.

    Brit Brit's spokeswhore tells People: "The two have decided to end their professional relationship and focus on their personal relationship. Since wrapping her recent world tour, Spears has been busy in the studio working on her next album."

    This is for the best. The last thing Jason needs to hear while he's picking Brit Brit's weave gnats out of his nostrils in bed is her whining about how he should get her a role on Mama's Family. Jason won't dare tell Brit Brit that Mama's Family is dead, because then she won't ever get out of her hamburger bed again.

  49. 49

    I'm so stoked for this project. Strange combo, but I LOVE sublime and the reggae dub style they created. dub pop is a combo that would be so fresh and intriguing. I love britney and I'm happpy that shes back to breaking ground. Cover SAW RED!!!



  50. 50

    Re: Britney Spears is a Joke – MAYBE YOU WOULD LIKE TO TELL US WHY U HAVE A VENDETTA AGAINST BRITNEY FOR SHE HAS NEVER DONE ANYTHING TO YOU BECAUSE U DONT FUCKING KNOW HER.SO WHY BASH HER EVERY CHANCE U GET IM NOT SAYING THAT CONSTRUCTIVE AND POSITIVE CRITICISM IS NOT GOOD.BUT U ARE JUST HATING AND BASHING BRITNEY FOR NO REASON.YOU NEED TO LEARN THIS WORLD DOES NOT REVOLVE AROUND U AND WHAT U THINK.

  51. 51

    dude! Rated R was dubstep-ified and super hot "welcome to the madhouse" (however, you seem to disagree!) i'm not sure america will ever be ready for dubstep. you are so freak'n biased. if it was Xtina working with Rusko you'd be like "hope this isn't another Rated R album falling flat". love your site - think your opinions are lame.



  52. 52

    Fuck that. She should have Jason Nevins produce her next album. His rock mix of Break The Ice destroys the album version.



  53. 53

    Re: Sarah Quel – FREAKSHOW IS DUBSTEP

    Re: lifes a B – Oh, baby, baby….How were you supposed to know…that I was out of squirrel mix…



  57. 57

    It`s all about the money. She needs money !!! Just like i need more weed and quality dubstep. She doesn`t fit in this scene. Let all ask her kindly to go to hell. And i wish you all a smoth painfull death you Britney lovers !



  58. 58

    Yeah it`s gonna feel great hearing Britney winning on some heavy-soft wobbles



  59. 59

  61. 61
