Tuesday, 25 August 2015, The Harmony of Ismail Marzuki: The Concert

cbb211f1b7cb9041ddd01779fa5d9b31Few months ago, one of my project, Juggernaut was invited to participate in the making of “The Harmony of Ismail Marzuki” album. Ismail Marzuki is one of Indonesia’s  greatest composer. So, It was an honor to be invited and considered as part of this project. All his songs are considered classic so there is big pressure for me to deliver something that is not considered as an abomination. Arrangement were started by Iso and I put the finishing touch. We actually recorded live drum and vocal from Marcell. And of course we have to add our own twist by adding some rap from Yacko. At the end we’re happy with what we made.

The album will be launched on August 25th at Hard Rock Cafe, Jakarta. Entry is Rp. 150k and it includes a copy of the album and first drink. Please support this album. All proceeds will be donated to charity.

Thank you for making me Drum & Bass DJ of The Year at Paranoia Award 2014

After 2 months of voting, the ceremony for Paranoia Dance Music Awards were held in Dec 19th. I received 5 nominations this year and I won one award in Drum & Bass DJ of the Year. Dipha Barus won the prestigious DJ of The Year Award. I received nomination in that category too but, being a Drum & Bass DJ makes me a long shot to begin with. It was an honor enough to be nominated in that category.

Once again, thank you to those who voted for me and making me Drum & Bass DJ of the Year for 2 years in a row.

Make me DJ of The Year at PARANOIA AWARDS 2014.

Its that time of the year for Indonesia’s most prestigious dance music award, the Paranoia Award 2014. This year I received nominations in 4 different categories DJ Of the Year (pretty cool considering I play Drum & Bass while everyone else are EDM DJs), Drum & Bass DJ Of the Year, Podcast Of The Year for “Bass In Yo Face” and Dance Track Of The Year for Juggernaut’s “Away”. My crew Javabass also received nomination for their trade mark party “PHUNKTION” in Serial events Of The Year category.

Please be kind and help me with some votes if you think I deserve it.

Interview with Kuassa

Kuassa is a plug-in developer based in Bandung, Indonesia. They are known for their Vermillion Amplification, a guitar amp modeller and also some great FX plug-ins such as my favorite the Kratos Maximizer and the excellent EVE AT Equalizer. All their products received rave review from music publications such as Computer Music and Future Music. Computer Music love Vermillion so much that they even asked Kuassa to create a Computer Music Edition that comes with every issue of Computer Music. These guys hooked me up with some of their products and now Kratos has become an indispensable tool in my production. They recently did interviews and featured it their site. Here is that interview.
