Next up for our Outlook 2013 mix series is an exclusive mix from the Don - Hatcha. The musical heavyweight comes strong with a classic selection of garage classics. His Outlook garage sets are thing of legend and this mix was never going to disappoint.
Hatcha’s roots seep deep back into late ‘90s UK garage, Croydon and pirate radio. Originally the buyer at the now defunct Big Apple record shop, Hatcha was one of the very first DJs to pick up on the new dark strains of 2step that were being made by local producers like El-B, Artwork and Horsepower at the turn of the millennium.
As the garage sounds from south London began to take on their own unique, dark swung direction, it became clear that the nascent scene needed a home. In 2001 Forward&rt;&rt;, dubstep’s founding club, started with Hatcha a resident.
In 2003 he even played a part in naming the genre. Amidst the scene’s key players: the Big Apple camp and Ammunition who ran Forward&rt;&rt; and Tempa, the term “dubstep” (from dubby 2step garage), began being circulated. Hatcha was then asked to mix the scene’s first compilation that cemented the use of the name: Dubstep Allstars vol 1.
