For ten years Hard Kandy has blown away all expectations of what clubbing in Melbourne can be: it made Friday nights the biggest night out, created a new generation of clubbers and ravers and broke the grip minimal techno had on the Melbourne underground dance scene.

With the following that borders on obsessive, Hard Kandy has become one of the heavy weights in the Melbourne club scene, with numerous imitators and a reputation that has achieved world wide status.

Hard Kandy have toured many of the world’s most esteemed artists including Yoji Biomehanika, Scot Project, Showtek, Dj Wag, Dj Dean, Vandall, Joop, Lab4, Cally & Juice, Tidy Boys, Anne Savage, Nick Sentience, Tara Reynolds, Alex Kidd, Derb, Walt, Dave Joy, Bass Agents, Kidd Kaos, David Forbes, Dumonde, Public Domain, Yohan Gielan, Karim, Jon Doe, Captain Tinrib, Daniel Ro and Kevin Energy.




Kutski Biography

The newest superstar of hard dance & people’s favourite Kutski is without a doubt the most exciting cross over talent to emerge from the UK scene in the past decade! His popularity within the scene recently earned him 3 prestigious awards in the 2010 hard dance awards, picking up best UK Dj, most outstanding contribution to the scene and best album for his Goodgreef Xtra hard disc!

Kutski’s weekly BBC Radio 1 show has grown from strength to strength, reaching new heights. This is the first time Hard Dance & Hardcore has had a weekly format to reach new audiences and it’s an honour, but also a well deserved plaudit for a true hard working professional. The show now fills a more peak time slot over his previous monthly Radio 1 show format with a 1am to 3am schedule every Friday night/Sat morning. The show has given Kutski another outlet and opportunity to showcase his ability to combine underground beats on a commercial stage keeping his diversity as an artist and in depth knowledge of all genres of harder edged dance music.

Kutski also generously shares his technical and musical knowledge with the dance music community online via his Youtube video tutorials. Demonstrating all of the latest dj equipment hardware, software, tricks of the trade and production techniques, his tutorial’s and other videos are clocking up ten’s of thousands of hits, often getting his channel into the top 10 list of most viewed musicians on Youtube.

On a performance level his natural exuberance and awe-inspiring deck-man ship ranks him up there among the true greats. The ingredients for a superstar are all in there, the ability to mix anything with anything have left crowds confused with a general “how did he do that” look across their faces. Technical skill with cuts and loops using every beat and bar of a track keep everything about Kutski’s sets fresh and devastating to behold. Then there’s scratching……on that front he is truly unmatched on the hard scene. Prepare to be amazed and you wont be far wrong.
