Why Denver is a better place for an EDM star to live than L.A. (it's not just the weed)

Gary Caspa, or simply Caspa as he's known in the music world, has just transplanted himself, along with his wife, in Denver, Colorado. Could it be because Denver is the mecca of dance music and progressive thinking -- two things that seem to go hand in hand these days? Or could it be because it's the near-center of the country and makes touring easier? On the week he released Dubstep Sessions 2014, we asked him these questions, plus some more, and he filled us in on why he, a leader in the worldwide dubstep community, would up and leave his home across the pond to land in what some refer to as a lonely cow-town.
