Caspa has become one of the true starlets of dubstep over the past year. There is even an argument to suggest that he has now crossed over into the mainstream, such is his popularity. Despite his increasing fame, his sound still remains the same, grounded in the true underground sense of the scene.

It was last year’s debut album, Everybody’s Talking, Nobody’s Listening! That made the masses pay attention to a DJ that had already been captivating the underground for some time. Maintaining his style that won the original fans in the first place, his sound started to reach a bigger audience. With his own Dub Police night’s residency at London super -club, Fabric in addition to his ever growing remix requests, (he has previously remixed Depeche Mode and Deadmau5 ) it is fair to say that he is a man at the top of his game. Added to that, he is also a highly in-demand DJ throughout the world, famed for dark, bass fuelled sets that set the clubs on fire. However, with all this, Caspa has struggled to find the time to produce again.

However, having now pledged to return to the studio, he returns with his first release of the year, “I Beat My Robot.” Complete with a jump-up, full throttled drum & bass remix of Original Sin’s “Marmite,” the release is strictly for the rave environment. The title track hits it hard with Caspa’s trademark heavyweight sound before his remix finally removes any last hint of sanity that has managed to stay within you.
