Cut A. Kaos
Cut A. Kaos, birth name Alexander Friedlhuemer was born 1969. This is not the only reason that it became a promising year. It was a year filled with innovations: Flower Power and psychedelic music captured the world. Alex goes for rock music since he was six years old. His cousin showed him all the legendary hits played by Sweet, Queen an others. This fondness for rock music still lasts on. Like the career of many other DJ, from 1984 Alex first played some short gigs in youth centre. Two years later Alex had his first gig for a real club in Zurich 1989: The beginning of the techno era Three friends gave each other impossible DJ names as a joke; and this was the origin of Alex' alias, Cut A. Chaos. This impressing name could be itemised into "Cut" for Alex' quick mixing, into "A." for Alex and "Chaos" for Alex' slight chaotic character. Arnold "Energy" Meier changed by himself the "Chaos" into "Kaos". Alex developed to the creative mastermind of "Delirium". Under his leadership the first Techno party in Switzerland - maybe the first in Europe - took place in April 1990. Switzerland gave Techno no chance of survival but they all should be wrong. As a result of several radio gigs abroad and in Switzerland (DRS 3, Radio 24, Couleur 3, Rete3 ect.) his very special sound got known all over Europe.
1994: Alex' sound got harder and harder. For the first time he was named as a "Hardcore DJ", although his spectrum is wider. Until 1999 he played sometimes Detroit and hard Techno and under the alias D.U.N.E. even House music. The turnaround came 1999. After several gigs abroad Cut A. Kaos specialised in Hardcore.
2000: This year was on one hand the hour of birth and on the other hand rebirth of Hardcore. Alex was responsible for this development; he founded his own party-label "Hellgate" and collaborated with all the big events and locations like White Wolf, Energy, Evolution, Rocking Chair, Gate One, Oxa and Niaxa. The climax was the legendary first Hotter Than Hell in 2001. This party was the biggest Hardcore event ever in Switzerland. In the meantime there was a lot of interest from abroad. For example from Rige, Netherlands (Megarave/Hellraiser/ Peppermill).
From 1996 till 1999 Alex was member of the Shadowlands resident DJ team. This honour brought a lot of gigs from abroad.
2002 - 2007: Since 2002 "Hotter Than Hell" is a fix part of the biggest Swiss party, the Energy. The first Hotter Than Hell CD in 2003 was even in the official Swiss charts - position 19. Since then this CD is successfully produced in collaboration with Traxtorm/Italy. The third Sonic in 2003 debuted with a Hardcore floor. For the first time it was a huge ice stadium! During these years Alex played a lot in the Netherlands, the birthplace of Hardcore.

A blend of many styles, but finally ending in Techno, always. Niereich, Austria's number one Techno artist made two brilliant remixes of the song called "Because It's Acid"!

Another remixer, Edelstahl, he produced a remix of the Trax "Walk And Talk", a hard and fat monster! Part two will reflect the years 1999-2005 output, fall 2014. Enoy your trip!
