Saturday, February 4
Caspa is real West London dubstep. A little bit haunting, very bassy, and packing a punch, Caspa’s brand of dubstep is the result of his roots in jungle and hip hop. Also known as Quiet Storm and Gary McCann, Caspa has an extensive catalogue of tracks, which include his 2009 Fabric release Everybody’s Talking, Nobody’s Listening, as well as a list of genre defying remixes like his remix of Rusko’s “Cockney Thug,” Depeche Mode’s “Wrong,” 30 Seconds to Mars’ “Hurricane,” and Ludacris’ “How Low.” In 2007 Caspa put out his split FabricLive.37 mix with Rusko, one of the first FabricLive mixes to feature mostly dubstep, and also one of the first commercially available dubstep mixes. After spending most of 2010 on the festival circuit, and early 2011 in the studio, Caspa is back on tour this year with drum n bass pal, DJ Friction. If you couldn’t score tickets to the already sold out Rusko next week, you’ll be kicking yourself again if you miss Caspa this Saturday (Feb 4) at the Town Ballroom. Local dubstep extraordinaire Stuntman will open the show. —cory perla
