The Future Case of Stereocase

Kesempatan untuk hidup relatif “enak”, “mudah” serta “mapan” sejatinya sudah di depan mata. Fadli (biduan), Iqif (drum), Icad (gitar), & Donny (bas), yang tergabung dalam institusi Stereocase sempat ditawari tampil reguler di tempat-tempat mentereng di antaranya Blowfish, Pizza e Birra, & Food Kulture. Namun koalisi berkesenian bentukan 2008 ini menafikan kans menjadi pengisi tetap, tak terlalu berminat selamanya menjadi band (rock) cover version. Namun alasan utamanya adalah: mereka ingin berkonsentrasi penuh masuk studio dan merekam lagu.

Tomorrow Nite! Extended Play!

Tomorrow nite! Wednesday, August 11, 2010; 8 – 10 PM

Upcoming R-n-R Exhibition: SIMON GRIGG
Extended Play

:: Introduction and playlist, written and handpicked by Simon Himself ::

As a kid growing up in suburban Auckland in the late 1960s, 1970s and 1980s good music was very hard to find. The commercial radio was awful, dominated by mainstream pap with a couple of hours of harder edged rock’n’roll late at night.

Then came pirate radio and the underground and it opened a whole new world of adventure to me. Radio didn’t have to be pap. I starting hunting out the sounds I was hearing on my radio under the blankets late at night when I was supposed to be asleep, most especially the bands that were making the sorts of raw garage rock’n’roll in my hometown. By age 16 I was sneaking out and was a regular, under-aged, fixture at the various clubs and bars where bands, most of whom were never recorded, played.

It was a short step from there to the forming my own band and then my own label. It set me on a journey I’m still enjoying.

I’ve always liked to be challenged by music and almost everything here pushed the boundaries of contemporary music at the time they were released. And they are tunes… every last one of them

Domestic Groove: OPPIE ANDARESTA

DOMESTIC GROOVE ~ Celeb’s Chosen Seven is my new 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 very first edition I went upclose-and-personal with Oppie Andaresta.

Video: N.W.A. – Straight Outta Compton

Ini video klasik dari N.W.A. Straight Outta Compton. Coba perhatikan gimana Dr. Dre waktu masih muda. Juga Ice Cube. Selain itu, perkenalkan Eazy-E (almarhum, meninggal karena AIDS), MC Ren, serta Yella.

Rock-n-Roll Exhibition: DEDI KRISTIAN

Rock-n-Roll Exhibition: DEDI KRISTIAN
Daddy-O-Stereo

:: Playlist, intro, song descriptions, and photos, written and handpicked by Dedi Himself ::

Playlist dibawah adalah normalizer saya di keseharian. Kadang jadi rambu-rambu, kadang jadi ekstase kilat, kadang jadi penenang, kadang menunjukkan siapa saya.
Banyak diantaranya adalah musik pengiring saat masih berjumpalitan di pinggir jalan Bali belajar six-step atau air freeze, buat lirik rap dll, disaat anak2 lain berdistorsi dengan gitar listrik dan pakai baju hitam-hitam. Dan lagu2 ini selalu fit in dengan semua periode hidup setelahnya, sampai sekarang. Ditambah dengan lagu-lagu baru yang saya temukan seiring jalan tentunya.

All songs define revelations in the long run!

Zeke Khaseli: Makan Salak Lalu Masuk Surga

Di kalangan penggemar musik bukan umum, Zeke Khaseli bukanlah nama asing. Kiprah musikalnya terlacak di wilayah publik sejak saat ia masih bersekolah di Seattle, AS. Kala itu, 2001, pria bernama asli Harris Khaseli dengan grupnya, LAIN, merilis album dalam format cakram digital bertajuk Djakarta Goodbye lewat label sendiri, Our Coffee Records. Diikuti, masih di tahun yang sama, dengan menerbitkan single via label lokal, Flat Spills Records, yang melambungkan reputasinya di tanah air: Veteran Travellers.

Bring Back the Memories!

:: Introduction and playlist, written and handpicked by Ade herself ::

Berikut ini adalah sederet lagu-lagu yang menyenangkan bagi saya pribadi, dan biasanya membangkitkan memori akan suatu masa yang sudah lampau. Sekitar setengah di antaranya adalah lagu-lagu yang seringkali diputar pada masa acara Monday Mayhem di Parc (Jakarta) sedang berjaya. Sisanya adalah lagu yang tanpa disengaja datang ke dalam hidup saya; dan lantas terpilih menjadi lagu wajib di ribuan pagi hari saya untuk memulai hari maupun malam hari untuk menemani saya menghabiskan bir dingin—dengan atau tanpa teman.

So, when I throw a party, most likely you’ll hear some of these;
