Alex Reece is the Creator of the jazzstep sound, a mix of drum 'n' bass and jazz, and one of the artists under the Metalheadz collective, who works also under the alias of Fallen Angel. Though he's most interested in acid house and early Detroit techno, Alex Reece came to prominence in the mid-'90s as a jungle star. His interest in techno began in the late '80s, when acid house was popular. Reece gradually earned enough money to buy turntables and a decent vinyl collection. He then began DJing and worked for Basement Records in 1992, engineering for Wax Doctor.
