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.
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.
First of all, I’d like to thank all those who voted for me at this year’s Paranoia Award. It was a pretty good night for me. I was nominated in 3 categories and I ended going home with 2 awards. ‘Ink & Paint” my collaboration with Yacko won the Dance Track of The Year category. I also won in the Drum & Bass and Dubstep DJ of The year. The third nomination was in DJ of the Year category which I knew was a long shot. I was actually surprised by the fact that I even got nominated in this category to begin with. Being a DJ from minor genre such as Drum & Bass, being nominated is good enough and was quiet an honor. At least I got to represent the Bass music community.
Once again thanks for all the supports. Its awesome that you guys helped a drum & bass tune became track of the year, beating out other nominees in genre as varied as Trance, Electro and EDM. This is victory for the whole Indonesian Bass community. I’m gonna end this article with this quote from some random white dude I met during Paradise In Bali, “Drum & Bass sampe mampus!”
I’ve been nominated at this year’s Paranoia Award for Local Dance Track Of the Year category. “Filth Rich” is a track I co-wrote and produced with Yacko. Show your love by voting it.

And if you need to hear the track here it is.
