Dan Peppe is a British record producer. In the mid to late '90s Peppe was a core member of the group Agent Provocateur alongside John Gosling (of Psychic TV), Matthew Ashman (originally of Bow Wow Wow) Danny Saber (of Black Grape) and Cleo Torez. Peppe went on to record under the name Themroc.
In 2000 Peppe released his first material under the Themroc name, which is taken from the title of an avant garde French movie from 1972 by Claude Faraldo. His first two EPs were aimed squarely at the breakbeat scene and gained a warm reception in the clubs. However, Peppe adopted a more ambitious approach for his debut LP, Beyond These Things. The album's stylistic influences included electro, house, breakbeat, techno and ambient. Featuring the acclaimed hits 'Bloodline' and 'Gold Is Your Metal', the album was fêted by leading UK DJs including Trevor Jackson and Andrew Weatherall. The album was awarded Mixmag magazine's Essential Album by Pete Tong and the single 'Bloodline' featured in MTV's top 100 dance tracks of all time.
in 2007 Peppe married the photographer Charlotte Macmillan.
