Thanks to Nitho Prodigy for the heads-up.
Single released 30 July 2012
Underground dubstep hero CASPA is to release his major label debut, the explosive single ‘WAR’. Featuring the unmistakable vocals of Keith Flint from The Prodigy, the single is set for release on 30 July 2012.
Caspa ft Keith Flint ‘War’ was made ‘Hottest Record’ yesterday on Zane Lowe’s Radio One show. You can hear the track on this Youtube static… http://www.youtube.com/embed/JJ0UKLRJPlo
“Who wouldn’t want to work with Keith? Growing up, The Prodigy were one of my influences. To actually work with someone like this is a big stamp of approval. One of my goals was to work with the idols I grew up listening to and that’s what’s happened with this track.” CASPA
“I knew Caspa was the originator so I was really buzzed to be asked. This is a proper movement and I’m proud to be part of this track.” Keith Flint
CASPA’s influence on the bass/dubstep scene is profound. His musical progression has marked him out as a key proponent in spearheading the sound internationally and the USA in particular.
As well as releasing his 2009 album ‘Everybody’s Talking, Nobody’s Listening’, CASPA runs three labels (Storming Productions, Dub Police and Sub Soldiers) producing dancefloor bomb after bomb, tours around the world, and hosts a bi-monthly night at the world famous Fabric nightclub (he recently played back to back with confirmed fan Skrillex). His remix skills are in higher demand than ever, remixing for the likes of deadmau5, Miike Snow, Swedish House Mafia, Depeche Mode, Katy B and most recently a killer remix for Plan B’s ‘Ill Manors’.
Growing up on a diet of jungle and hip hop, the West Londoner started DJ’ing and experimenting with beats after a promising basketball career was cut short by injury. Following early support by Radio 1xtra, he went on to host a weekly show on Rinse FM. Amidst the ever growing hype, CASPA and fellow label artist Rusko were approached by Fabric to mix the 37th instalment of the now cult status Fabric Live series. 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 huge remix of ‘Hard’ by Breakage became Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record in the World at Radio 1. In 2010 he continued to smash up the clubs with his remix of Ludacris’ ‘How Low Can You Go’ – the first official dubstep remix of a major US rap-star. Later that year his release ‘Back for the First Time’ was playlisted at Radio 1.
Following a year on lockdown in the studio, this year has seen lots more touring with a massive US tour, including a much lauded set at the Miami Music Week. CASPA will be performing at various venues all over Europe, followed by another US tour and Australia dates later in the year. Catch CASPA in the UK this summer at:
