Alex Tepper is best known as one half of seminal dance duo Futureshock. His partnership with Dockerty as Futureshock resulted in an array of stellar remixes – among them New Order, Chemical Brothers and St. Etienne – a label venture with Junior Boys Own and leading DJs falling over themselves to praise the pair. “Innovative dance music for a new era,” praised Pete Tong, while a certain Mr. Tenaglia simply said, “What they’re doing is so up my alley.” Touring with Underworld was not to be sniffed at either.
Since those crazy, heady days as part of the Futureshock juggernaut, Alex has been taking something of a backseat, though his workload has not eased up. Over the past few years, secreted away in his secret beat laboratory, The Dog House, in the heart of balmy Dalston, Alex has been providing the know-how for a variety of premier league DJs, collaborating regularly with Steve Lawler, Nic Fanciulli and a host of others, who’ve come to him for a sprinkling of Tepper magic with releases on Get Physical, Cocoon, R&S, Ovum and many others.
