THE OTHERS

Among the ever-expanding landscape of Dubstep, Alex Crawford (known musically as The Others) has crafted his own distinct style and shaped up what promises to be a successful 2014. Having released his debut artist album and conquered music venues worldwide, the future will see him focus on producing his niche blend of classic Dubstep creation.

During 2013 The Others had a range of successes, reaching from one of the biggest Dubstep singles of the year to delving into a deeper, darker style of production, gaining support from original scene tastemakers such as Caspa, Youngsta and Skream, giving a huge nod to the roots of Dubstep. Having released his debut artist album at the very end of 2012 with features from Emalkay, Joker, Stamina MC, Breakage, Lonette Charles and Geoff Smith, the following year was dedicated to the promotion of Red Planet’s impressive singles. Standout single ‘Fallout’ with Emalkay gained recognition from all corners of electronic music, with continued support from Radio stations such as Radio 1, Kiss FM, XFM, a nomination for a Bass Music Award and a feature from key Dubstep YouTube channel UKF. His inclusion in all sections of Dub Police’s Past Present Future compilation cemented his reputation as a bass music artist with longevity.

Dubstep fans will of course recognise The Others’ early production from Caspa and Rusko’s seminal FabricLive 37 mix. The special VIP mix of Africa became both a Dubstep anthem and a calling card for Alex’s skilful production. The Others (as a production duo) were soon snapped up by Caspa for his record label Dub Police, where Alex Crawford remains as an artist today (retaining the moniker The Others), racking up an incredible 23 releases – making him the most released and longest-standing artist on the entire label. Releases such as the Gravity EP and First Flight EP on Dub Police ensured he had earned his place among Dubstep’s elite. The Others has also found success with other respectable bass music labels including Sub Soldiers, Tempa, Ringo, Boka and Wheel & Deal records.

As well as a fantastic track record in producing, The Others is a more than accomplished DJ, being invited to play at some of the most prestigious venues worldwide. He has been a constant fixture at the Dub Police fabric residency in his hometown of London, and played key venues in the city like Pacha, Plastic People (FWD), Ministry of Sound and Matter. The Others has been invited to DJ at parties across the globe, including an impressive six US tours, both solo and group expeditions with label mates from Dub Police. He has performed at prestigious parties and venues such as Smog at The House of Blues in LA, South by Southwest in Texas, World Music Conference Miami and Beta in Denver for Sub.mission. Australasia was also graced with his musical skill during a Ministry of Sound tour of Australia and New Zealand in 2011, and Europe has been a staple destination with performances at Tomorrowland Festival, Outlook Festival, Paradiso in Amsterdam, Trix in Antwerp, The Villa in Oslo, Rex in Paris, and more. He was also part of the first ever Dubstep night in Ibiza, at Eden.

Fuelled by his constant creative output, The Others has received continued radio support from stations such as BBC Radio 1, XFM, Rinse FM and Kiss FM. He was an original member of the BBC 1xtra Daily Dose of Dubstep artists. All of these stations have invited Alex to play music on air, with Mistajam proclaiming his track Gravity and his First Flight EP ‘Jam Hot’.

His discography also hosts a very impressive catalogue of remixes including Above & Beyond, Breakage (with Newham Generals & David Rodigan), Caspa, Emalkay, Maroon 5 (with Wiz Khalifa), Reflekt, S.P.Y and Youngman & Skream.

2014 will see The Others continue to develop his musical creativity and delve into the deeper sound of Dubstep. He will remain focused on his DJ performances and spend another year travelling the globe, sharing his sound, and this will also be the year of Alex working alongside the label as an A&R to sign the next generation of artists. He is the next in line to mix Dub Police’s prestigious MyStyle compilation series. Add this to a host of exciting projects and planned collaborations, and 2014 will mean massive things to come for The Others.
