Dubstep lovers watch out: two real heavyweight dubstep producers/dj's have been recruited to mix cd number 37 in the almost legendary Fabric Live series:
Caspa back to back with Rusko.

Both Caspa and Rusko have had a very succesfull and prolific 2007: the first saw his career skyrocketing after several years of hard work running his Storming Productions empire (which includes the Dub Police and Sub Soldiers labels) on which Rusko released his fresh material, resulting in the mega mega hit "Cockney Thug" which allows him to travel the world and party alongside Caspa and fellow dj Reso.

This new mix on Fabric is the crown on their work so far and is well deserved. It includes all the smash hits of 2007: Spongebob, Cockney Violin, Africa and Round the World girls (on Gibbo's "Hard Time" riddim") but also treats us with a new Skream dubplate and a nice remix of Cockney Thug by Portugese bubblers Buraka Som Sistema.

Fabric Live is eagerly awaited by Lock it Down, but will not be released untill december 3rd..Mini mini excerpts can be found through this link. For those wanting a bit more: Dutch agency Planet KL booked Caspa a while ago and posted his excellent live set in their news section.

Aaah, sweet anticipation....
