Hard dance was a genre of music that I grew up listening to back when raves still happened in warehouses. Since then there haven’t been very many artists that still push the boundaries of hard dance, producing stuff that doesn’t sound like the Pacman theme song on drugs. Kutski is one artist who will play it hard and not apologise for hurting your ears or breaking your soundsystem.
With his infamous technical ability, incorporating DMC-style scratching and mixing into every perfectly constructed set, its not difficult to see why he has earned the tag ‘the people’s favourite’, voted the UK’s No.1 hard dance dj in the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll and scooping up awards for ‘Best UK Hard DJ’ and ‘Outstanding Achievement’ in the Hard Dance Awards 2010 as well as best hard dance dj in the Hardcore Heaven Awards!
His weekly BBC Radio One show has grown from strength to strength reaching new heights amongst listeners around the world. Apart from this, Kutski also generously shares his technical and musical knowledge with the dance music community online via his Youtube Channel, demonstrating all the latest dj equipment hardware, software, tricks of the trade and production techniques.
Kutski had an outstanding year in 2010, playing at every major festival worth their salt over the summer including Defqon One, Creamfields, Dance Valley, Global Gathering, Electrocity, Escape Into The Park, Run To The Sun, Sanctuary, Planet Love, Coloursfest and Parklife and was the only UK act to play both Defqon One in Holland and Australia! His tours included USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, Poland, Holland & Germany, trips to Ayia Napa, Tenerife, Gran Canaria and Kavos as well finding time for his regular residency at Judgement Sundays in Ibiza and now he’s here in South Africa.
