Biography

With more than 20 years as a DJ and producer, Pete Bones is something of an underground legend. He could just sit back and earn respect on the strength of his reputation alone. But that’s not Pete’s style.

The first half of Pete’s career is a lesson in success. Gaining his first residency in 1990 at Hand & Spear in Surrey, Pete’s DJ career took off quickly, and it wasn’t long before he was guesting all over the UK.

Pete had bigger plans though, and soon began producing quality, underground tracks for the burgeoning scene.

In ´92 he launched Ugly Bug Records, and recorded hits under his recording alias, The Shaker - including the club smashes, “Just Lick It”, “Mooncat” and “Strong to Survive” - before being signed to XL recordings in ´95, after a 3 way struggle between A&M, XL, and Maifesto to secure his signature. He went on to release one more single under the Shaker alias - “Star” which was a massive club anthem across 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. Pete was also rewarded with club residencies at The Cross, and Mass in London, as well as Joy in Edinburgh, and The Kitchen in Dublin.

For most, this would have been the peak of an outstanding career, but Pete was after something a bit more substantial.
