Skapes is a relatively new name on the UK underground house scene, you may also know him from his previous work as Twocker (with Low Steppa), Calvertron or his earlier work in the techno/house scene as Alex Calver (his real name) where he clocked up well over 100 vinyl releases.
Some of Alex’s career landmarks include releasing his music on Data (Ministry of Sound), Toolroom, 3Beat, Cr2, New State and remixing a diverse plethora of big league acts like Guru Josh, Korn, Skepta, Sander Kleinenberg, Zero B, Stanton Warriors and Enter Shikari. He has also enjoyed a very successful career as a DJ touring the globe several times over making regular appearances all over the States, Europe, South America, Asia and Australia (where he mixed a successful Ministry of Sound compilation album).
His latest pseudonym Skapes is already making waves with regular plays on BBC Radio 1, he has his own monthly show on Pioneer Dj Radio and his latest releases on labels like Relief, Elrow, MadTech, Abode and Armada Subjekt have gained support from heavy hitters like Green Velvet, Jamie Jones, Seth Troxler, Mark Knight, Richy Ahmed, Claude Von Stroke and Steve Lawler to name a few.
In 2018 Skapes joins the ranks of ‘Solardo’s’ awesome label ‘Sola’ with his ‘Electronic Drums EP’ with Huxley, a V/A single on Kaluki and an EP with Ke-An on Erase Records.
