Domestic Groove: DEWIQ

DOMESTIC GROOVE ~ Celeb’s Chosen Seven is my biweekly column in The Beat (Jakarta) mag. Basically it’s an interview via e-mail which focuses on small, intimate, domestic stuff; what Indonesia’s public figures are really into, musically speaking.

For the ninth edition I went upclose-and-personal with Dewiq.

Songwriter, Singer

What music are you into at the moment?
At this very moment I am listening to Toe, an instrumental band from Japan

What was the first record you bought—any interesting stories behind it?
The first time CD I bought was by Lenny Kravitz. I bought it when I was still in high school, can’t remember how old I was.

What are your all-time favorite albums? Why?
Led Zeppelin, and I like all of their albums. I just like the way they display their soul in their music.

What was the worst record you ever purchased?
Never. Ask around before you buy. Ha ha ha.

Who do you want to be, other than yourself, next time you reincarnate?
Mistique (one of the characters in X-Men that can transform into anyone), ha ha ha.

What album do you choose to start your weekend?
Last weekend I was listening to Deftones’s new album, maybe next week I’ll be listening to Kylie Minogue. Anything goes.

And album you choose to end your weekend?

Dewiq is currently busy writing songs and working on materials for various different artists and musicians.
