Caspa & Rusko definitely recognise a crossover between the dub reggae, garage and drum'n'bass scenes and pull the best elements from each to make the sounds and sets they do, injecting this breath of fresh air into their selection for FABRICLIVE 37. Having chosen a new generation of artists from all around the world, picked because of their tried and tested audience reactions, this mix is as true a testament to the sound this duo emanates as it is to the sound of now.

|quote||My whole family was musical. My dad was a record collector, he was mainly into punk but collected everything across the board. There was always a lot of that music in the house growing up. I used to love jungle, at school I remember swapping tape packs and will always remember this Brockie & Det tape I had. My brother was into a lot of hip hop so I listened to a lot of artists like Wu Tang Clan, Mobb Deep and Nas. Soon after, I was listening to a lot of Rawkus artists and MCs like Talib Kweli, Pharoahe Monch and Common. Musically I had everything going on around me."
"My mum used to sing in a band called "Ventura Highway" right up until about 3 months before I arrived. So I was on stage before I was even born! It was like this weird kind of country/folk music. She used to play the mandolin too. So I used to have musical instruments and guitars everywhere around me in the house. I've still got a banjo somewhere and I play bass and saxophone too. I spent two years at music college but never went to lectures, they had amazing studio facilities so I made the most of them instead.
