CASPA ‘Back for the First Time’ / ‘Geordie Racer’
After a short spell away, Caspa is back with one of the most highly anticipated releases of the year on his own Sub Soldiers imprint. Never one to rest on his laurels and take a backseat, this latest EP is yet further testament to the devotion and hard work of one of the UKʼs most prolific and prominent figures, cementing his place within the global electronic elite and establishing himself as an artist in his own right.
First up is an anthem that has been lighting up airwaves globally for the last few months. This latest, club bound banger comes in the shape of 'Back For The First Time' featuring Dub Police label mate and fellow UK luminary D1. Gathering heavy support on BBC Radio 1 from Annie Mac & Zane Lowe, as well as being battered in the clubs by the who's who of dubstep A-listers, this is fast becoming one of the biggest tracks to emerge from the scene so far this year - it's not hard to see why with it's catchy ascending and uplifting chords, juxtaposed with THAT trademark growling bass - this track will no doubt be the soundtrack of many festival attendee, clubber and music fanʼs Summer, guaranteed to mash the dance and pronounce the return of one of the sceneʼs key players.
On the flip Caspa teams up with another label mate Subscape for a tune that, like itʼs A side brethren, has already seen the light of day in countless clubs worldwide. 'Geordie Racer' takes no prisoners with its driving, furious beats and prominently low, penetrating basslines, anyone who has been lucky enough to be in the rave when this monster drops like a ten ton weight will no doubt inform you of the carnage it creates in its wake. Again gaining support from dubstep royalty and being featured on Caspa's 'MyStyle' mix CD (released last month), itʼs another future classic from the real London deal.
All in all, expect big things once again from the return of Caspa & the Sub Soliders / Dub Police camp. And as ever, thereʼs plenty more to come where that came from...keep those ears peeled and those bodies locked.
