The musical partnership that started between Alex and Paul, AKA The Others, a number of years ago has proved to be an endlessly creative and fruitful one that has continued to herald exciting results both in the studio and in clubs. What started off as a one time collaboration between the pair brought to light a musical kinship that has been the driving force behind an impressive and substantial back catalogue of music and a hectic touring schedule that has seen them travel the world over. Having later decided to part ways, Alex continues to take The Others forward as a solo project and has a whole host of exciting new projects in the pipeline which will emerge over the coming months.
After meeting as music production students, their shared love of garage and jungle brought about the musical alliance that has taken them to the top of the dubstep scene where The Others now reside. Following the evolution of garage into what was to become dubstep, it was after hearing seminal Digital Mystikz track ‘Anti-War Dub’ that they honed their focus in on the emerging sound, embarking upon a path that has led them to where they are today.
They received early support from revered DJs like DJ Wonder, Joe Nice and N Type who championed tracks ‘The Curse’, ‘Hear Dis Style’ (which was to become their debut release on Boka) and ‘Freakshow’, which was later picked up for release by seminal dubstep label Tempa. As momentum picked up off the back of this, it was thanks to the support of dubstep ambassador N Type on his radio show that led to them being asked to join Caspa’s growing Dub Police stable, with whom they remain to this day. The organic development of this relationship has gone from strength to strength, with The Others becoming an integral part of the eclectic label. He is now the longest running Dub Police artist and has acquired the most releases for the label, pairing a prolific work rate with a high quality watermark on all his releases.
It was after joining the Dub Police camp that Paul moved away from the production side of things and Alex took the reigns on the project. His first release for the label, ‘Africa’, garnered a lot of attention, becoming an anthem in the scene, and the VIP version of the track featured on Caspa and Rusko’s landmark fabriclive 37 compilation. A slew of impressive releases followed both for Dub Police and an impressive array of other labels including Sub Soldiers, Tempa and Wheel & Deal Records. It hasn’t stopped at original productions either, as his growing reputation also led to remixes of Above and Beyond’s ‘Sun and Moon’, underground anthem ‘Hard’ by Breakage featuring Newham Generals and Pyramid’s ‘Trouble’.
2011 saw him continue to build his profile further still. The ‘First Flight’ EP on Dub Police went on to amass a huge amount of support from all corners of the scene while remixes for Maroon 5 & Wiz Khalifa (‘Payphone’), Youngman & Skream (‘Who Knows’) and The Prototypes (‘Taking Me Over’) cemented his status as one of the most in-demand remixers out there.
Now in 2012, The Others still has plenty up his sleeve with a number of projects being readied to see the light of day soon. With a new single due out in July and an album scheduled for the end of the year, it is set to be his busiest year yet. Keen to continue evolving, he is also busy working with a host of artists from the dubstep scene and beyond.
Any time when he isn’t in the studio, he can be found travelling across the globe igniting dancefloors. His prodigious skills have taken him to the famous House of Blues in LA, Paradiso in Holland and the first ever dubstep night in Ibiza with the Dub Police takeover at Eden where he was second on the bill after Caspa. With summer calling, you can expect to see him playing plenty of festivals including the infamous Tomorrowland festival in Belgium.
