Prodigious bass producer KRANE (formerly KRNE) is getting ready to take on the great Northwest! KRANE, with the support of Sharps and Gangsigns, is coming to Portland, OR on April 14th at the local EDM Hotspot 45 East.
In little time, KRANE has become a household name in the underground bass music scene. Boasting a raw, cutting-edge trap sound, he was featured on TOKiMONSTA’s standout 2015 single “Put It Down” alongside Anderson .Paak. That same year he launched his “SESSIONS” initiative, an ambitious project where he offers up his collaborative efforts to give talented, underground producers more recognition. Artists submit work-in-progress tracks and KRANE selects his favorites to finish and ultimately release as free downloads. “SESSIONS” has proved to be a success, spawning popular collaborations with Dabow, Lotus, and New Noise artist Havok Roth, among many more. “SESSIONS” is just another reason to love KRANE, giving up & coming artists an opportunity to break through the constant noise of the EDM world and make a name for themselves.
Past Releases & Success
Last year, KRANE took the world by storm, landing on A-Trak’s Fools Gold imprint with “I’ll Be Good” before releasing official remixes of Keys N Krates’ Dim Mak single “I Know U” and K.Flay’s indie-pop smash “FML,” which has been streamed over 2.1M times on Soundcloud and YouTube combined. Keeping the momentum alive in 2017, KRANE recently dropped “Akira,” a heavy trap number produced together with Ekali. You have also probably heard my (Rashae) favorite KRANE song, “Movin”, at least once if you are a regular music festival attendee. Finally, now with a dream collaboration, KRANE linked up with electronic masterminds Keys N Krates for “Right Here”, a perfect fusion of future bass and melodic trap, with over 700k streams on SoundCloud since it’s release.
Artist to Watch
What sets the Oakland-based producer apart, however, is his knack for sound design, as his sample packs are used prevalently by fellow producers and musicians. It is that versatility, among many other traits, that prompted Dancing Astronaut, RunTheTrap, and Noiseporn to name KRANE a 2017 “Artist To Watch.” His most recent sample pack, ‘Krane Samples Vol. 4″, is available via Splice Sounds and was inspired/created from community feedback, previous tracks, and unreleased music.
