Fresh from featuring as Zane Lowe’s ‘Hottest Record’ on Radio 1 last night, Cheap Thrills label boss Hervé has finally unveiled the official video for brand-new single ‘Better Than A BMX’
It’s been a long time coming but we promise you it’s more than worth the wait. One of the UK’s most prolific and versatile producers Hervé, AKA Joshua Harvey, is back with a new single ‘Better Than A BMX’, released on the 26th February, the first track to be released from his debut artist album ‘Pick Me Up, Sort Me Out, Calm Me Down’ set to drop next year on Cheap Thrills.

Because it’s Christmas, Cheap Thrills label boss Hervé has decided to celebrate by giving away some goodies over at his brand-spanking new website on the advent calendar ’12 Thrills of Christmas’

Having passed the landmark half century in releases for Dub Police it’s time to celebrate and what better way to do so then to hand the reigns over to label head Caspa for the big 50!
Following the release of the anthemic ‘Back For The First Time’ last summer on Sub Soldiers – which was vocalled by Mr Hudson as ‘Love Never Dies’ and the brutal ‘Neck Snappah’ earlier this year, Caspa returns with the huge ‘Fulham 2 Waterloo’.
Driven by a hard 4×4 kick and galloping snares, the rhythm is overlaid with the snap of the half step snare providing an impactful percussive counterpoint that flips between house and dubstep. With the tough dancefloor foundations laid, it is the sharp, rave-inflected lead hook that provides an addictive rallying cry for club audiences everywhere.
Having first been aired by Annie Mac on Radio 1 back in February, it has been getting heavy club support from Atrak, Breakage, Mista Jam, Annie Mac, Zinc and Emalkay to name a few and with forthcoming rubdowns from Roska and Emalkay Fulham 2 Waterloo is set to storm the summer soundsystem airwaves.
As the man behind Dub Police and affiliated labels Storming Productions and Sub Soldiers, and an irrefutably top class producer in his own right, Caspa’s influence on the scene is profound. His continuing musical evolution and willingness to champion new talent has marked him out as an international
Fulham 2 Waterloo
ambassador for dubstep as he continues to spread some of the most exciting sounds to come out of the UK in years.
Fresh back from Coachella Caspa now hits the road with an epic list of heavyweight forthcoming tour dates including Glastonbury where he will provide another outing of his’ Dubs, Decks and Visual FX’ multi sensory assault, followed onwards by Global Gathering and Creamfields amongst a massive run of forthcoming festivals and worldwide shows that take him to every corner of the globe, not to mention a 14 date tour throughout the USA in August which will be hitting some major venues alongside Digitalism.
Touring is just the tip of the Iceberg, Caspa still finds time to host a bi-monthly night at the world famous Fabric and not content with running 3 labels, producing dancefloor bomb after dancefloor bomb and the acclaimed album ‘Everybody’s Talking, Nobody’s Listening’, his remix skills are in higher demand than ever, remixing for the likes of Katy B, Buraka Som Sistema, Deadmau5, Miike Snow, Swedish House Mafia, Depeche Mode, Kid Sister to name just a few.
Caspa is working with a host of exciting guest vocalists and collaborators on his forthcoming artist album with full details to be revealed in the not too distant future- stay up-to-date with everything Caspa related with the new official Caspa iPhone application featuring news, music, videos, gig details, photos and much, much more!
