Known for fronting the industrial-electro band SHIV-R, which since 2010 has released 4 full-length albums, numerous singles, EPs and remixes and toured extensively throughout over 20 countries worldwide including festivals such as WGT (Germany), Kinetik (Canada), Mechanismus (USA) and Infest (UK), Pete Crane now presents a solo, self-titled project of instrumental industrial club music.
Launching in early 2020 with the debut full-length album "That Annihilated Place" and accompanying single "You Are Not Your Body", Pete Crane's solo music focusses on hard-hitting club sounds. With no vocals (unlike SHIV-R), the project builds from an industrial techno basis and injects doses of bass music grime, EBM power and psytrance flow to create a sound that has already landed in many DJ setlists around the world.
Pete Crane returns already in 2020 on Infacted Recordings with a new EP. Titled "XV" (15), after the number of The Devil tarot card featured in the striking neon cover art, the digital release contains 4 new tracks that reinforce the project's more industrial sounds, along with 2 remixes from the debut album (by Les Berrtas and Tragic Impulse).
“Pete Crane's well-crafted, modern electronic music is a unique imaginary soundtrack for EBM freaks. ”
