From the age of 10, in 1991, Sutter Cane was heading towards his ambition of making Electronic Music. Influenced by the young rave sound, his passions soon shifted towards Techno and the scene around it.
Now Sutter Cane has become one of the leading figures of Austria's Techno scene. Next to his work at Vienna´s cult Dj & Recordstore „Friendly House“, he is the founder of the Driving Forces artist agency, promoter of the monthly techno club series called BOINK! and head of the successfull and international & national respected label Driving Forces Recordings.
In 1991 it was a CD with an unique new style of music which changed the whole life of Sutter Cane. It was the first time when he came in contact with Techno music.
After several years of collecting all different styles of electronic music, it was 1998 when Sutter Cane wanted to go the next step. He did not want to become a Dj, it just was the fascination which made him start mixing. From then on nothing was more important than Techno. It became his life. Teaching himself, Sutter Cane got a technical experience and it came like it had to come...
2000: Starting to work for the promoter of a weekly club-event Sutter Cane made his first experiences with the business-side of the scene.
After getting connected to the “right” people, Sutter Cane became a member of the Tatort Entertainment crew, a booking-& event-agency strongly connected to the Austrian edition of the Loveparade.
From 2001 until 2002 he became member of the Dj-Pool of a local club.
The first dj-gigs @ local clubs and the Austrian Regenbogenparade followed.
Shortly after becoming an official member of the Tatort dj-pool, and having his first vinyl-release for Global Matador Records in the pipeline, the Tatort Entertainment offices had to close, it seemed to be the end of Sutter Cane’s fresh carrier...
At the same time Sutter Cane got in contact with the new head of XXX-Productions, Austria’s leading promoter of techno-events.
After spinnin’ at the XXX-Overdrive club-night for the first time, people’s response was that massive, that Sutter Cane became the new XXX-resident dj, resulting performances at the legendary XXX-Gazometer (Austria’s biggest pure techno-event) and @ exclusive club-nights all over Austria.
In the beginning of 2006, Sutter Cane founded Driving Forces, an unique & fresh artist-pool, supporting young Austrian talents who are strongly connected to the electronic music scene.
2007 was a good year. Sutter Cane came in contact with Syno, another great producer from Austria and they started working together on several projects. The rebirth of the Overdrive clubnights resulted a lot of clubgigs all over Austria and even Slovakia. In summer 2007 Sutter Cane and Driving Forces member Mark Domine were booked as headliners for Paradog Festival in Slovakia. What an amazing night. But it came even bigger and better. In October 2007 another big step was done. After one more hughe show at the legendary Gazometer in Vienna, Sutter Cane was the one and only Austrian artist at this year's edition of Mayday in Budapest, Hungary.
2008 was for sure the strongest year in Sutter Cane's history. With nearly 60 gigs all over Austria, Sutter Cane became one of the most wanted Austrian Techno Djs.
In January Sutter Cane went online with his very own radioshow called Driving Forces Transmissions, broadcasted by Play.fm. The monthly Driving Forces Transmissions Radioshow had great feedback and was able to feature not only Austrian talents but also international guests like Eric Sneo, Lars Wickinger and the Pet Duo. More to come in 2009. For more infos check www.play.fm!
After a very very bad harddisk- and mainboardcrash of the studioworkstation the studioprojects of Sutter Cane lost a lot of time which made it impossible to hold the releases as planned.
Sutter Cane's targets for 2009: more great radioshows with a lot of international guest artists. Confirmed so far: Marco Bailey for the first show in February 2009.
New residencies in well known clubs outside of Vienna. Even more gigs then in 2008 and the launch of the Driving Forces recordlabel.
Forward ever. Backward never.
