"Caspa grew up in West London, and was brought up on a diet of jungle & hiphop. At the time he wasn’t old enough to go to the jungle raves so had to be content with his tape packs of Brockie and Det. When garage emerged he naturally progressed into the sound and started attending garage raves.

After an injury which sadly ended his once promising basketball career, he bought his first pair of decks and started DJ’ing. And after receiving a free demo copy of Fruity Loops he started to experiment with the idea of building tracks in a computer program and got his first real taste of music production. Under the name Quiet Storm he made a tune called ‘Bass Bins’, which was picked up by BBC 1xtra’s J Da Flex who showcased on his Underground Knowledge Show in 2003. The next day he received a call from DJ Lombardo (the first resident of FWD) who had just started his label Fragile Beats and spoke with him about a possible release of the track he had heard the night before on radio.

Due to unforseen circumstances, the label never blossomed and the track never saw the light of day, but determined not to give up he pursued his ambitions by starting his own label Storming Productions in 2004 and started a weekly radio show on the prolific Rinse FM. With a successful year of working and releasing with artists such as Search & Destroy, Dubchild, Toasty Boy, DJ Narrows and Oris Jay the label was well established as one of the dominating labels of the time.

After receiving a demo from Swedish producers L-Wiz, he decided to start a sister label to Storming called Dub Police, this label’s focus was to give platform to up and coming artists and push the newly developing dubstep sound - it was also at this time he had his debut release under the alias of Caspa, after which he had a release on well known dubstep label Tempa (Rubber Chicken), which had been one of the largest tracks of the year and is still regarded by many as an anthem.

With a string of succesful releases from artists such as L-Wiz, N-Type, Rusko, The Others and of course his own productions under the Caspa alias, the label began to grow in to one the dominating labels within the newly formed dubstep genre.

After a number of highly successful releases and remixes, in October 2007, Caspa along with label artist Rusko, were appraoched by Fabric and asked to mix the 37th installment of the legendary FabricLive series, following on from estalished artists like John Peel, Fabio & Grooverider and DJ Craze. This was the first commercially available dubstep compilation and majorly helped bring the genre into the limelight, and for many listeners, it was the first time they were exposed to the music.

In 2008, Caspa joined highly respected artist agency ‘Coda’, this lead to a string of high profile gigs & festival performances such as Glastonbury, Global Gathering, Big Chill and Glade aswell as taking Caspa as far and wide as Israel, New Zealand, America, Canada and all across Europe and the UK.

Caspa’s recently started sister label to Dub Police; ‘Sub Soldiers’, was now thriving with two installments of the popular ‘Ave It’ series, amongst other huge tracks to come out of the label. It was also at this time that Caspa & Rusko were approached by Lennie De Ice to remix the foundation setting Jungle anthem ‘We I.E.’ which had been one of Caspa’s all time favourite dance tracks. Straight after, Caspa’s highly successful remix of TC’s drum and bass anthem ‘Where’s My Money’ had become one of the biggest dance tracks globally and had grown into one of the biggest crossover tracks of 2008, propelling dubstep to the masses.

Fast forward a year from the release of the FabricLive CD, Caspa and the Dub Police have found their home at Fabric, holding down a bi-monthly night alongside DJ Hype & Pascal’s True Playaz residency at this prestigious nightclub. With an album on the horizon, aswell as other major projects including a mix compilation and a remix for EMI, Caspa shows no signs slowing down, and 2009 is set be the year of the ghost." - last.fm

I am so tired. Like right now, if I could fall asleep I might drown in my own slobber.

I'm not tired of playing music for people- I like doing that.
I've been djing for over 14 years! I've done pretty much every aspect of DJING from playing in weird other countries to celebrity weddings, barmitzvahs, and clubs of all different shapes and sizes. I play appropriate music for any occasion, meaning I am not too proud to play some tear out dubstep, throwback electro, or some 90's rap shit. My personal music tastes does shine and I pride myself as being a tastemaker- so expect the best- no shitty music from this guy. I have been writing and producing music for a very long and my first 12' record was released on Brownswood Electr*c Volume 2- Giles Peterson's Brownswood Recordings. I have hundreds of beats that will never see the light of day, mostly downtempo and the occasionally syrup dripped rap jawn. My album will come when it comes, I am not tripping and you should be. I live in San Francisco and I throw parties- tastemaker shows. I try to challenge the audience and have a fun time doing it… I want to do memorable parties with good music. It's hard. I personally play all the time up down the west coast. I've headlined shows and I've done a bunch of support. I've played alongside Modeselektor, Thom Yorke, Four Tet, Madlib, Edit, The Roots, Daedalus, The Gaslamp Killer, Joy Orbison, SBTRKT, Shlohmo, Just Blaze, Harmonic 313, Flying Lotus, Joker, Skream, Rustie, Dj Funk, Dorian Concept, Lorn, Lazer Sword, Hudson Mohawke, Jakes, EOTO, Mimosa, and Eskmo. Follow me on twitter so I look real cool.

Seriously though, I love good music and I love good people. I wouldn't be doing what I do if it weren't for those two simple facts.

Follow your bliss.
BOGL
Griffin BOGL is a little bit of an anomaly. No matter what city you are in he might just be at the same party, right next to you. He states SF as his home base, but I'm pretty sure the BOGL spaceship is from parts unknown. After his sets last year, people were raving, literally! It was even likened to drunken Kung Fu, the way he bobbled around behind the decks seamlessly mixing the strangest tunes for what was to become some of the most diverse sets.

BOGL is a guy that can't be pigeonholed. His sets and production always surprise and his sound is on the constant evolve tip. Don't try and understand this man, just show up with open ears, ready to hear something fresh!
