The secret’s out – the first Dub Police of 2014 will take place on Saturday the 19th of April, at Studio Spaces warehouse in Wapping, London. This is the only Dubstep event to be at during the Easter weekend, with a legendary line up providing 8 hours of upfront music. Dub Police head honcho Caspa will play his first London show of 2014, and we also welcome Emalkay back to his first Dub Police show since 2012. Dub Police legends The Others and Subscape and low-end hero J:Kenzo will be performing along with Mydas, Variations and BadKlaat, part of the new wave of Dub Police talent. The night will feature a live PA from Riko of his track with Caspa ‘Mad Man’, and Dubstep MCs IC3, Ken Mac, Sun of Selah and Roguestar.
Caspa, The Others, Subscape and Mydas sat down to discuss Dub Police’s ‘Past Present Future’ project, unveiling exclusive information about releases such as Emalkay’s ‘When I Look At You’, Conquest’s ‘Forever’ and The Others’ ‘Africa VIP’.

Featuring legendary soul singer Diane Charlemagne, who many will know as the voice of Goldie’s seminal track ‘Inner City Life’, ‘Reach For The Sky’ is a an ideal choice as the next single for Caspa. Channeling rave’s break-driven sugar rush, the euphoric piano melodies perfectly compliment Charlemagne’s soaring vocals, while the tight drum and bass style edits and plunging bassline deliver a big soundsystem production.
Up first on remix duties, label stalwart The Others brings a darker edge to the track, suspending the vocals over lurching drums and heaving bassweight. Drum & bass innovator Break rarely does remixes, but jumped at the opportunity to get involved in this project, twisting the original and inserting intricate drum edits over a rolling rhythm, letting the vocals and melodies from the original set the tone before breaking out into a full on jungle brockout. Completing the package, upcoming talent RS4 delivers a stripped back and low-slung tech house mix utilizing the vocals to complement the funk-lined groove.
This single package has already received support from Annie Mac, Friction, Mistajam, Crissy Criss, DJ Hype, B.Traits, Eddy Temple-Morris and more.

Oiki’s third Dub Police release ‘Ratchet’ continues his rich vein of form, showcasing his skills to a whole new level. A boundary-breaking one-track special, brought to you by Dub Police, it’s yet another sure-fire smash from the Russian artist. Dynamic, daring and ultimately devastating, ‘unique’ is an almost impossible word to apply in dance music these days… But this insane fusion of industrial strength grit truly is one-of-a-kind.
This single has received support from Caspa, Subscape, J:Kenzo, Cookie Monsta, Drumsound and more.

As part of the Past Present Future project, Dub Police have attached a brand new visual to a label classic. After being included as the second track in Caspa and Rusko’s pioneering FabricLive 37 mix, ‘Girl From Codeine City’ by L-Wiz became a massive Dubstep anthem, and the original vinyl run on Dub Police (DP010) sold out. This Dub Police classic has been re-released on the Past Present Future compilation, available now on CD, Digital and even being re-pressed as part of a special six-track Vinyl. You can purchase all formats here.
