Profile: Rave, Club & Radio DJ who since 1989 has championed the harder scene sounds since day one - mostly playing HaRdCoRe, Trance, Hard Acid, Schranz/Techno, Breaks, Drum'n'Bass/Jungle, Rave, Old School, House, Gabber/Speedcore, Hardstyle, Industrial & Death/Speed/Thrash Metal.
Often being one of the first DJs to break those styles in W.Australia he's frequently been known for playing the hardest set of the night (especially to close an event) which came to be known as the '6 o'clock shock' after getting to play the 'graveyard' 4-6am closing set for years - this went on to inspire a number of other up & coming DJs to specialize only in this style of extreme Hardcore once crowds started expecting promoters to end this way.
Holding residencies at Havanna, Cinecellars, Gravity, A.W.O.L.(Greenwich), Futurevibe, DC's Cave, Kaos, Scallywags, Strike@the Windsor, Calibre (Metros, Globe & Studio 7), Resistance@Rosemount, Quarantine@Marble Bar, Overdrive@Racket Club, R.O.A.R@The Hyde Park, Friction@NuVibe, Revolution@Rise, R.O.A.R Sessions II@Hyde Park, S.O.S@NuVibe, S.O.S@Studio 7, GBT@Joondalup, 'Hard Wars' & 'Ourstyle' nights @ Rise & Bar Open, Boombox BoatCruise & FORCE Events.
You'll also find him rostered regularly playing @ Dominate, FORCE, Pure Old Skool, Alpha 6, United, Jungle Fever & Inhibit crew events to name a few, as well as underground Raves & events, assorted club gigs & the odd radio show.
Runs 'TeKnoLoGy CoRps' - the oldest underground event production crew in Perth (since 1991) and has been producing his own music (across more genres than punters can listen to) as half of the legendary duo 'FaNaTiK' since 1992 - having a massive live rave & club gig list, supporting many a big name (The Prodigy, Quench, Severed Heads, Itch-e & Scratch-e, Carl Cox, UltraSonic, CJ Bolland, Force Mass Motion, Top Buzz, Westbam, Slipmatt etc) since. As Perth's most experienced live act, they still produce & play the occasional live set when other promotions/events commitments allow.
In WA, he's written for X-Press & Drum Media, as well as a column in Inside Magazine (now defunct) and being the Australian correspondent for UK's 'Eternity Magazine' doing 2page spread scene reviews from Oct 1994 till it's closure.

On 11th Dec 2011, Hutcho was inducted into the 'Perth Dance Music Hall Of Fame' for outstanding contributions to the scene as a DJ, Promoter & Producer.
