Late Nite Tuff Guy is a new breed of disco vigilante, prowling the neon streets on a mission from God / David Mancuso to reclaim the clubs and fuck shit up. The scandalous alter-ego of genuine techno legend HMC (known to his momma as Cam Bianchetti), Late Nite Tuff Guy (LNTG) puts the acrimony in acronym, the oh in disco, the amp in camp and the dang in dangerous. His shit’s controversial, but it don’t stink.
Peddling the most credible of disco edits – sexy and tasteful to a tight white tee – and accruing some serious acclaim from an illustrious roll call of heads in the know (including Jeff Mills, Todd Terje, Richie Hawtin, Laurent Garnier, Ellen Alien, Steve Lawler, Carl Cox, Nic Fanciulli, Jackmaster, Optimo and The Don himself – Sir Greg Wilson, who remixed LNTG’s One Nite in a Disco), the world is his and it’s about to blow up.
Under his earlier HMC guise, our tuff, dark and oh so handsome saviour earned the moniker ‘The Godfather of Australian Techno’, and rightfully so. A seminal figure in Australian dance music, HMC was one of the first artists to propel Antipodean techno and house into the world’s clubs with bona fide mid-90s classics such as Phreakin’, LSD and 6AM. Proper soul music with an electronic pulse, HMC’s soundtracked the planet’s most discerning discos and is set to continue this dance-floor dominance with his LNTG incarnation.
