What more could you ask for in your Christmas stockings??
Claudio Pettannice, with his then partner in crime Marco Guardia discovered their passion for electronic music during their school days. They worked together for 5 years and released a strong discography with their unique hardtrance style.
After hitting the clubs and the scene with trance classics like "Isn't It All A Little Strange" which was signed to legendary Frankfurt Label Pulse (Overdose Sub), or the remixes for Dave Joy's "First Impression" and Cosmic Gate's "Back To Earth", S.H.O.K.K. started to get international with tours in Australia, The Netherlands, South Africa and the UK for Names like Godskitchen, Dance Valley, Passion or OXA to name just a few.
In 2004 a collaboration between Marcel Woods and S.H.O.K.K. was released on ID&T under the name "Woodshokk - Tulips & Chocolate" which was supported again by some of the very big names in the trance scene. This tune was the last release so far before Phil Green and S.H.O.K.K. in 2007 with an Electro remake of "New Year's Day" by U2.
In 2008, he continued his production journey with super talented French producer DJ Space Raven.
This will be S.H.O.K.K.'s last performance in Melbourne, as his world tour comes to an end. So make sure you check out this trance phenomenon, for the last time.
