Caspa & Rusko are a dubstep duo of DJ/producers who primarily operate individually but collaborate on occasion, most notably on their high-profile mix album FabricLive.37 (2007).
Comprised respectively of Gary McCann (a West London native) and Chris Mercer (a Leeds native), Caspa & Rusko had only recently begun collaborating prior to mixing FabricLive.37, which is comprised primarily of self-productions and, as the first dubstep mix album in the long-running series, was somewhat of a milestone for the fledgling British style. McCann (i.e., Caspa; also known previously as Quiet Storm) is the more notable of the two, as he founded the Storming Productions label in 2004 and also founded a pair of subsidiary labels, Dub Police and Sub Soldiers -- all influential labels on the dubstep scene. Caspa made his production debut in 2006 on Dub Police with For the Kids, a three-track 12" EP, and inaugurated his label Sub Soldiers the following year with his double-12" release Ave It, Vol. 1. His duo partner, Rusko, also made his production debut in 2006 on Dub Police, releasing SNES Dub, and likewise released a double 12", Babylon, Vol. 1, on Sub Soldiers in 2007. As a duo, Caspa & Rusko performed a DJ set at the 2008 Glastonbury Festival. ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi
