A Monthly Showcase Featuring The Regions Best House, Tech House, & Techno Artists on The Myth Terrace Hosted By Kinesis Productions, Presenting:
PETE BONES (Red Ant Digital | Bedrock Records | Superfreq)
With more than 15 years as a DJ and producer, Pete Bones is something of an underground legend. He could sit back and earn gigs on the strength of his reputation alone. But that’s not Pete’s style. He knows what he wants, and he’s good enough at what he does to make it happen. And that’s why Pete Bones is always one step ahead of the rest of the scene.
Pete started his musical background after being expelled from school aged 15. With way too much time on his hands, he started a band with 2 close friends. Pete taught himself guitar and drums, and by the age of 17 the boys were ready to start gigging. They had played 2 London gigs when in 1988, when after a trip to Ibiza, and the first whisperings of ecstasy and acid house, he decided that electronic music was his future, and traded his drum kit for a pair of technics turntables.
The first half of Pete’s career is a lesson in success. After playing numerous illegal parties around the South East of England he gained his first residency in 1990 at the Hand & Spear in Surrey, and soon turned it into one of the biggest nights in the whole of the UK. Pete’s DJ career took off quickly and it wasn’t long before he was guesting all over Europe. Pete had bigger plans though, and in ’92 he launched Ugly Bug records. It was an instant hit, especially with big hitting radio dj’s Pete Tong and Judge Jules.
Pete became a resident guest on Kiss 100fm, and his first release as his main recording alias, The Shaker, – ‘Just Lick It’, became the club hit of the year. The remix work came flooding in, from labels such as London, FFRR, Hooj, Ore, Fade, and Perfecto. His remix of Zee’s Dreamtime was essential new tune on Pete Tong’s BBC Radio1 show, and finally in 95 Pete signed to XL recordings, after a 3 way struggle between A&M, XL, and Maifesto to secure his signature. He went on to release 3 more singles under the Shaker guise – ‘Mooncat’, ‘Strong to Survive’ and ‘Star’ which were all massive club anthems around the world. His djing skills started to attract the talents of promoters as far afield as Capetown and Durban in S.Africa, as well as New York, L.A. and Denver in the USA. For most, this would have been the peak of an outstanding career, but Pete was after something a bit more substantial.
Despite the massive chart success, Pete reinvented his sound and launched a new label: Red Ant Records. “Having a hit track is great and all, but I was really more concerned about the underground,” says Pete. “Red Ant was a way for me to get back to what I wanted to do, which was make tough, techy tracks with a lot of energy.
