Cutfather (born Mich Hedin Hansen; 9 April 1968) is a Danish music producer, songwriter, remixer and DJ, based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Cutfather has a studio on Njalsgade, Copenhagen.

Career[edit]

Cutfather is perhaps best known for his remix of "Return of the Mack" by Mark Morrison (1996), and the song "Superstar" released internationally by Jamelia in 2003.[1]

In 2015, "Up" performed by Olly Murs featuring Demi Lovato, written and produced alongside Daniel Davidsen and Peter Wallevik, became an international hit.[2]

Cutfather has worked with Danish producer Jonas Jeberg. Together they wrote and produced for Pussycat Dolls, Kylie Minogue, Pixie Lott, The Wanted, JLS, Jessica Mauboy, Claire Richards, and Jordin Sparks. Cutfather has previously worked with Joe Belmaati in the songwriting and production team Cutfather & Joe.[3][better source needed] As part of the Cutfather & Joe partnership, he wrote and produced for Peter Andre, Ace of Base, Westlife, Blue, Jamelia, Shayne Ward, Lee Ryan, Lemar, Blazin' Squad and Kylie Minogue. In 2004, Cutfather received a prestigious Ivor Novello songwriting award for Best Performing song, for his composition "Superstar" by Jamelia (which he also co-produced), which was the most performed song in the United Kingdom that year.[4]
