Propelling Down Under techno and house into the world’s clubs with classics such as ‘Phreakin’’, ‘LSD’ and ‘6AM’ in the mid-90s, DJHMC (Cam Bianchetti) is rightly hailed as the Godfather of Australian techno.
DJHMC is called the godfather of Australian techno for a reason. He and the labels Juice and Dirty House were responsible for his hometown Adelaide’s title of ‘Australia’s Detroit’.
He hit number one on the German dance charts in 1995 with Dirty House’s first release ‘Phreakin’ ‘and Carl Cox included ‘LSD’ on his classic mix ‘FACT 2’. Aside from Cox, global HMC fans include Richie Hawtin, Jeff Mills, Luciano, Laurent Garnier, Optimo and Claude Young. His performances as DJHMC are of course very different now to those heady early days and his music style now reflects his love of not just techno but also house music too.
