S.H.O.K.K. (Marco Guardia and Claudio Pettannice) discovered their passion for electronic music during their school days. They worked together for 5 years creating genre-defining Trance and Hard classics such as; Folie a Deux, Isn't It All A Little Strange, and many anthemic crossover remixes such as Cosmic Gate's 'Back To Earth', Dave Joy's 'First Impression', DJ Energy's 'Excelsis', and Signum's seminal 'Coming On Strong'. As their taste of music began to change, in 2003 they decided to split and go their separate ways, leaving behind one of hell of a legacy indeed. 

After nearly 4 years and many many emails and messages from the Hard Trance community, S.H.O.K.K. returned to the scene in 2008 with Nicolas Perrottey replacing Marco Guardia as producer, and Claudio remaining as always, the original representing DJ.  Since then the partnership has gone from strength to strength releasing quality music on the who's who of modern Hard Trance labels from Joyride to Hard Trance Europe, Tidy to Metamorph. 

These past couple of years alone have seen S.H.O.K.K. make impressive appearances at Kiddstock, Goodgreef, Trancecoda, Hindsight, Trance Sanctuary @ Fabric, and this year will also see him play at Ibiza's No 1 and annual multi-arena Trance gathering, Captured Festival.  

Having just played a part in mixing the latest Hard Trance Europe (Volume Two) Compilation CD through Black Hole Recordings, what better time could there be to book this undisputed Swiss Hard Trance legend?
