More than one band has gone by the name of Mad Hatter
1. The previous incarnation of Mad Hatter 2.0 . This Metal band existed from the 1987 until 1995 in the South West of England. They supported bands such as Scorpions, Wolfsbane, Girlschool, Whitelion and also Paul Di'Anno's Killers. With which they supported during parts of their Murder One U.K. tour. This original line up disbanded in 1995 due to problems within the band as well as a general decline in the popularity in Metal music.
2. Mad Hatter or Mad As Hatter aka Antun Conkas was born in 1982 in small place near Zagreb, the capitol of Croatia. As a kid he was influenced by his brother's Kraftwerk, Jean Michel Jarre, Vangelis, KLF and U96 tapes, inspiring him to start making his own tapes and getting into the electronic music and music in general. In the late nineties, he started clubbing and getting to know the scene in Croatia, and has only had two wishes since: to play and make music.
Later on, he bought one used midi controler and made some demo tracks which can be described like ambiental, dark and kinda depressive. That's quite opposite of music he likes to play in his dj sets. In the late 2007 he bought a pair of MK3's and started with real djing. He says he's not based on one genre and he likes to play different kinds of music in his sets from deep, tech and progressive house to driving and industrial techno. It depends on a moment ;)
Some of his musical influences are: Kraftwerk, Jean Michel Jarre, Vangelis, Technasia, Alexander Kowalski, Heiko Laux, Doc Martin, Dylan Drazen, Funk D' Void, Danny Howells, Lee Buridge, Silicone Soul, Circulation, Björk, Kanzleramt sound, Italian/Swedish techno… and many others.
