KRANE is known for his unique take on electronic, hip-hop & dance music, and the Northern California-native’s jazz upbringing and modern perspective has allowed him to remain an evolving musician. Born Zachary Krane, the producer has been recognized and praised by the very best in tastemaker and mainstream media, and has been featured on a number of respected radio programs.
Since the start of the project, KRANE had quickly reached bigger heights than planned. After leaving his full-time job, the early days of hosting demos online grew into acclaimed singles, remixes, an album and a celebrated imprint/collaborative series, SESSIONS.
The end of 2015 was met with the release of TOKiMONSTA & KRANE’s single “Put It Down” featuring Anderson .Paak. In 2016, his “Debris” album series was introduced, stabling his first packaged release (through Fools Gold Records), staged as a volume-based collection of B-Sides and Rarities from recording sessions with Kehlani, J. Cole, Bryson Tiller and others. Alongside a collection of one-off singles, this album was followed by 2017’s collaborations of “Right Here” and “Akira”, with producers Keys N Krates and Ekali.
While KRANE’s needle-pushing music stands on its own, his work with notable artists from Dillon Francis to A-trak to Bebe Rexha, and recent remixes for Baauer, Jai Wolf, Vince Staples and more also showcase the demand for his productions and remixes.
KRANE’s engaging live show had hit stages across the US, many times over. 2016 has seen countless headline dates across the country, performing to packed crowds at Coachella & many more major festivals; including 2016’s GUD Vibrations tour with producers NGHTMRE and Slander.
