Tunde Caspa Q&A
First of all: hi Tunde! How you doing?
Hi Giuseppe and Ludovico, I'm doing great thanks, biggest fan of this label so lovely to be giving you some insight.
Take us through the beginnings. How did your passion for music and DJing started?
My passion for music and djing started from my mums kitchen, as there would always be some amazing music playing which gave me that connection to the groove. Following that I had my first mix in my teens at my local youth centre where I was called Caspa by a few mates, so that name stuck with me. Proceeded to buy my first set of technics BD22s off my old friend Harry, and never looked back. I feel very blessed to have been through so many eras of dance while still remaining current.
We know that the web is such an important place for you to spread your philosophy of quality music, amazing podcasts, your mix series and ultimately your radio station/community. Back in the days of the proto internet, did you understand right away that this was such a relevant platform to promote your ideas?
The web these days is an essential tool to spread your identity. I’ve always tried my hardest to maintain a level of quality in the music I present, that’s always been my philosophy. So back in the days when we didn’t have internet, the pirate radio stations were the best way to really promote your music, as they were on 24/7 and it was vinyl only. So the only way you could get this music was by a trip to your record shop. Having that experience and focusing on keeping up to date in the music world, has given me more than I need to stay relevant. When it felt like the right time to make the switch to a focus on digital, I felt it was the next step, and was ready to take change in stride as I've always done.
