Vector Hold is no stranger to the synthwave scene. With six albums released since 2012 and countless singles.
Supporting national touring acts such as Carpenter Brut, Dance With The Dead, Gost, and Chromeo there doesn’t seem to be any slowing down for this pioneer of the synthwave movement. Hailing from the San Francisco Bay area Pete Rice has been a prominent long time musician who’s been in several music projects spanning three decades. Along side with silent music partner Dave Stoltenberg on guitar he adds that special sauce that’s needed to perfect the desired authentic 80’s sound.
I first got started making music after I took a bunch of bass guitar and guitar lessons with an 8-track Tascam multitracker way back in the late 1980’s. I eventually started my own band Ska/Punk band Janitors Against Apartheid which took me on a six year adventure across the United States of nonstop touring. Meanwhile making chiptunes on an Amiga 500. I later got into the Drum N Bass Rave scene in the late 90’s. For 10 years I had been in and out of countless Heavy Metal bands, most notably Forgotten Gods. I got back into making electronic music somewhere around 2011. I started making all these 80’s throwback jams that came naturally to me. I remember watching the movie Hobo With a Shotgun, I thought to myself I make music just this. Who is this? I got online and found this whole community of synthwave people. I found my home. Quickly I was signed to Aphasia Records based out of France.
