-Surpass got an early start in the music world by playing trumpet at age 11. By age 16 he had taught himself to play most brass instruments, along with the guitar and bass. After graduating from the Denver School of the Arts (DSA), in 2000, he began dj’ing drum and bass. After many years, including a break from the dj/drum and bass scene, he found dubstep, and in late 2008 began making tunes of his own. Shortly after, in early 2009 he launched Alterkation Recordings with label mate Eli D, in an effort to expose up and coming artists like himself others. Since then, he has been signed on with stateside heavyweight Shift Recordings, along with several other notable stateside labels. Watch out in 2010, as it is set to be a big year for Alterkation and the man they call Surpass.
