Peter Rank Schrøder, born 5 June 1984, known as Pete Fox, is a Danish musician, DJ and record producer of electronic dance music. Although he has used different aliases throughout his career, he is best known as Pete Fox.

Early life and career[edit]

Peter Rank Schrøder was born and raised in a small village, Brønderslev in the northern part of Denmark. With his father playing drums and his mother a brilliant pianist, the path was chosen early at age for Peter. In one defining moment at the age of 8, Peter watched a DJ perform for the first time and from that day his target was set. At age 13 Peter got his first mixer and Crapman was born.

Crapman[edit]

Starting in his early teenage years as Crapman, Peter began performing in local Danish clubs and steadily grew to playing concerts for over 40,000 people. At age 17 he was playing at the local club in his hometown Brønderslev, before he moved on to the legendary Jomfru Ane Gade. Soon after, Crapman became the #1 mainstream DJ in Denmark and was traveling regularly to perform all over the world from Ibiza to Shanghai. In 2005, Peter was opening for Tiesto in Spain.

In 2004, Peter began producing and releasing material as Aycan with fellow producer Darwich and vocalist Mette Veronica. They released 8 singles together with massive success in Europe, playing shows for over 30,000 people alongside Cascada and Scooter, and earning a gold record in Germany. In 2007, their single "Divided" reached #6 on the Danish dance chart and stayed in the top 10 for several weeks.

Among his notable remixes, the Crapman remix of Alphabeat’s “The Spell” reached #1 on the Danish dance chart in 2009. [3]

Inventing Pete Fox[edit]

In 2012, Peter signed with Sony Music Denmark and began releasing music under the name Pete Fox. During 2011-2012, he produced several chart-topping hits for Danish pop star Joey Moe, earning them multi-platinum records and numerous awards.

It was during this time Peter’s mother became ill, and after a devastating battle with cancer she died later that same year. He worked hard to get on and many studio sessions later with his good friend Joey Moe he got back on track, and finally in 2012, Pete Fox released his first single “Stjernetegn (Feat. Joey Moe & Jeanette Zeniia)”. [4]

Podcasts[edit]

In 2009 Peter began producing a series of podcasts for free download in iTunes. It was a series of small radio shows, where he introduced new songs, and often had guests in the studio. The last episode was released on December 15th 2010, as a part of his transformation into Pete Fox. [5]

In 2013 Pete Fox started making a new series of podcasts, which is still running today. New episodes are added weekly, focusing on great mixing and exposing new songs to the listeners. The hour-long show is a DJ mix of primarily progressive house, dubstep and trap music. [6]
