2014 was yet another fantastic year for Dub Police, celebrating a decade since the label’s conception. Following on from the previous editions dating back to 2010, ’Dub Police Class of 2014’ is a celebration of music from the past year, with a broad range of tracks from a whole host of artists at the Dub Police camp. Last year saw the hugely anticipated album project ‘500’ from the label’s founder Caspa, The Others’ exciting take on the ‘MyStyle’ mix series, as well as a massive debut EP from newcomer Ethic and much more. It was only right that we compiled ten tracks representing the year’s musical highlights for our first release of 2015.
Following the label ethos of shining light on emerging talent from within the Dubstep scene, we kick things off with newcomer Ethic and a standout track from his debut EP, ‘What Ya Call Me’. Subscape’s massive tunes ‘Angels’ and ‘I Would Have Loved You’ are included, the latter receiving a stunning remix from Los Angeles based producer AWE. Remix duties don’t stop there, with The Others’ dark and futuristic re-shaping of Caspa’s track ‘Reach For The Sky’ featuring the incredible vocal talents of Diane Charlemagne. Hertfordshire based duo Variations’ track ‘Endlessly Empty’ and Russian producer Oiki’s ‘Ratchet’ are also featured, along with The Others’ mighty track ‘Voyager’ and a heavyweight collaboration with J:Kenzo on ‘The Prophecy’. No Dub Police compilation would be complete without music from the big boss himself, Caspa. Taken from his new three-part album ‘500’ is the underground banger ‘Submission’. Things are rounded off with ‘War Drum’ (Done Talkin’) featuring the vocal talents of the legendary MC $pyda.
It’s been another huge year for the label, and ‘Dub Police Class of 2014’ is a prime example of why this label has remained a cornerstone of Dubstep for so many years, and will remain to do so for many more to come. Bring on 2015!

11. Dub Police DJ Mix
Hailing from the East Coast of the USA is Dub Police newcomer Notixx. After creating a massive bootleg remix of the Caspa and Subscape track ‘Geordie Racer’, which immediately grabbed the attention of Dub Police head honcho Caspa, he was quickly snapped up to put together an EP for the label. Taking elements of Trap, Dubstep, Hip Hop and Drum & Bass to create his unique sound, Notixx has put together his impressive three tracker debut EP for Dub Police; ‘Last Call’.
First up is the massive ‘Last Call’ fusing elements of Trap and Dubstep to create a catchy and energetic bass fuelled beast. This track is guaranteed to do the damage on any dancefloor, and has been a mainstay in Caspa’s sets on his recent ‘500’ tour across North America. Notixx takes things darker with Trap banger ‘Rock Bottom’ combining clever beat programming, nasty mid range bass and haunting synth lines. ‘Heartbreak 2014’ brings proceedings to an epic close; again flirting with Trap and Hip Hop influences to create an emotional 175 halftime BPM roller laced with pianos, tight snappy beats and booming 808’s.
Keeping in line with Dub Police’s tradition of providing a platform for new talent, Notixx is most certainly an artist with an exciting future ahead of him, and we can’t wait to hear what’s next.

10. Caspa – War Drum (Done Talkin’) feat. MC $pyda
Representing his rich breadth as a creative artist, the ‘Empire’ EP comprises four of the many stand-out productions from The Others’ ‘MyStyle 004’ mix compilation. Treating the mix like a studio album, he created such a strong body of work that the project has spawned an album sampler, the mix itself and these four brand new tracks.
Far too good to keep them to himself, this is the first time these four cuts are available as full tracks in their own right. Four heavyweight slices of uncompromising dubstep; two frenetic collab creations; one epic EP from The Others.
1. The Others – Empire (6:03)
2. The Others – All The Way Down (6:02)
3. The Others & J:Kenzo – The Prophecy (4:41)
4. The Others & Mydas – Lost World (4:37)
Caspa’s uncompromising ‘500’ album project continues with the second of three episodes. The Dub Police founder’s third artist album will eventually comprise each ‘500’ episode – plus additional productions – to create his clearest, most confident long player to date.

Curating and weaving 28 moments of solid sonic gold – including 16 previously unobtainable tracks and eight of his own solo and collaborative productions – The Others has gone to great lengths to represent the entire sub bass spectrum with sharp, slick consistency. Morphing, mutating and shifting through the genre’s many colours, we’re submersed in deep space textures, low-end funk, iced-out fracturisms and stark slices of unfettered euphoria. Each moment wholly complementary to the last; this mix truly deserves ‘journey’ status.
Make no mistakes: ‘MyStyle 004’ isn’t just a bona fide signature document that shows exactly how The Others expresses himself as an artist; it’s a signature document of the entire scene and how creative and exciting it can be in the right hands. Bold, broad and bad: there is no mix out there like this.
