Not content with running 3 labels , producing dancefloor bomb after dancefloor bomb and the acclaimed album 'Everybody's Talking, Nobody's Listening', his remix skills in the genre of melodic dubstep are in higher demand than ever, remixing for the likes of Depeche Mode and Adam F & Horx feat Method Man to name a few.
Want the Caspa and Rusko Biography?...
Growing up in West London on a diet of Jungle and Hip Hop
In 2003, under the pseudonym Quiet Storm, the track 'Bass Bins' was picked up by BBC 1xtra's J Da Flex and things started to snowball. Founding his own label Storming Productions in 2004, Caspa also began a weekly radio show on the iconic Rinse FM. Signing up and working with the likes of Search & Destroy, Dubchild, Toasty Boy, DJ Narrows and Oris Jay the label soon became established as one of the dominating underground labels of the time.
Amidst the ever growing hype, Caspa and fellow label artist Rusko were approached by Fabric to mix the 37th instalment of the legendary FabricLive series. Following on from such legends as John Peel and Fabio & Grooverider, this was the first commercially available dubstep compilation and played a significant part in bringing the genre into the limelight and introducing it to many new listeners worldwide. His anthemic remix of TC's 'Where's My Money' pushed things even further and his mix on Deadmau5 and Kaskade 'I Remember' further still.
So what's to come in 2010?....

Production collabs with Benga, Deadmau5, Diane Charlemagne and Subscape are also on the cards for the not too distant future whilst this year promises to be another festival frenzy with multiple international dates already secured including Bestival in the UK, Beyond Wonderland in California and Sonar in Spain to name but three.
