We at TBJ would like to say a big heartfelt happy birthday to our beloved city of Jakarta as it celebrates its 484th anniversary. As always, to commemorate the occasion the Jakarta Fair returns to the Jakarta International Expo Building in Kemayoran to entertain the capital’s residents for a whole month - just in time for the summer holidays. Meanwhile, it seems that a whole lot of events have been crammed into the month of July to anticipate the approaching month of Ramadan, coming our way in August. Before the late night partying and good times grind to a halt for the holy time, let’s all enjoy July as best as we can. There’s plenty on and you have come to the right place to find out where it’s all happening. Until next time, keep on rocking Jakarta! Kami segenap redaksi dari TBJ ingin mengucapkan selamat hari ulang tahun kepada ibu kota tercinta kita Jakarta yang sekarang merayakan dirgahayu ke-484. Seperti tahun-tahun sbelumnya, untuk merayakan hari istimewa ini diadakan Jakarta Fair, yang berlangsung selama 1 bulan dan bertepatan dengan liburan anak sekolah. Disisi lain, sepertinya bulan July ini akan sangat padat dengan acara untuk mengantisipasi hadirnya bulan suci Ramadan yang akan tiba pada awal Agustus mendatang. Sebelum kegiatan party hingga pagi hari dan berfoya-foya harus berhenti untuk sejenak, marilah kita nikmati bulan Juli sepenuhnya, ada banyak acara yang berlangsung dan Anda dapat baca semua yang akan meramaikan kota dalam edisi ini. Sampai edisi berikutnya, keep on rocking Jakarta!

Scoop Level 42 30 years jamming out funky-jazz and pop tunes is an amazing feat for any band, and to celebrate this success, legendary UK group Level 42 will be touring the globe. The band which is now formed by members Mark King, Mark Lindup, Nathan King, Sean Freeman and Gary Husband will be stopping off in Jakarta on the 24th of July to perform at Gran Melia Hotel and Ballroom before continuing to perform in Surabaya on the 26th of July. Original Productions as the promoter of the upcoming concerts have announced that ticket prices will range from around Rp 400k up to Rp 2.5 million.

Linkin Park ‘A Thousand Suns: World Tour 2011’ After successfully electrifying the Jakarta crowd several years ago with their hard hitting rock hits, the boys of Linkin Park will return once again to the capital to showcase their latest tunes from their new album ‘A Thousand Suns’. The promoter responsible for bringing the band to perform at Stadion Gelora Bung Karno on the 21st of September is Big Daddy Live Concerts. Many were worried that the chosen venue would be moved like the previously planned Iron Maiden earlier this year, but Big Daddy has made sure that the concert date doesn’t clash with any upcoming soccer games and that the grass would not be damaged in anyway so they are positive that there will be no change in schedule. Tickets for the concert are already available online at www.bigdaddy.com or www. myticket.co.id

Ravelex DJ Campus Ravelex returns with its annual DJ Competition ‘Ravelex Campus DJ Championship’ to seek out some of today’s young and aspiring DJs. This year’s competition is a little different than usual, and has been turned into a travelling talent scout road show event called ‘Campus Night’. After scouting out the best young DJs from five major cities, a total of twenty-three DJs have made the cut to duke it out in a final battle which will be held from the 1st - 3rd of July at The Piazza, Gandaria City. Like last year the winner of the competition will go on to be a resident DJ in one of Jakarta’s most happening clubs. The final bout will also feature a music seminar about electronic dance music presented by some of today’s leading DJs. Best of luck to all the finalists!

BRNDLS: BRNDLS: DRG,DRG, MDCN & DGNR8 MDCN & DGNR8 K

isruh dalam negeri di Indonesia yang bak tak berkesudahan, sengkarut keseharian nan berkepanjangan di Nusantara, segala riuh kemelut domestik di negara yang konon “jamrud khatulistiwa” ini telah mendorong The Brandals—yang notabene sempat vakum selama empat tahun—untuk menerbitkan DGNR8 (baca: degenerate). Album yang secara nasional telah dirilis sejak Juni 2011 ini, menurut grup musik yang kini menyebut dirinya BRNDLS, merupakan sebuah tribut untuk bangsa besar yang mengerdil sehingga menjadi bahan tertawaan rakyat yang terjebak di dalamnya. Deklarasi sinis oleh kelompok yang kini beranggotakan Eka Annash (biduan), Rully Annash (drum), Tony Dwi Setiaji (gitar), Mulyadi “PM” Natakusumah (gitar) dan Radit Syahrazam (bas) diungkapkan ekspresif via desain sampul album serta packaging yang berbentuk kemasan obat. DGNR8, menurut BRNDLS, adalah semacam obat persembahan untuk rakyat yang sakit karena kondisi bangsa yang kian bobrok.

beatmag.com 036


Feature

Selain memuntahkan pernyataan yang ofensif, pun di isu musikal mereka merombak arah bermusiknya secara ekstrim lagi masif. Ledakan emosi yang dulunya diumbar meledak berhamburan, sekarang lebih terkontrol, kian tenang. Eka Annash mengistilahkannya sebagai, “We made peace with our demons.” Para personel yang terus beranjak dewasa plus makin matang merasa telah tiba saatnya untuk cabut dari zona nyaman lalu bereksperimen dengan sound dan pendekatan musik berbeda. Hasilnya terpancar dari dua single yang dimunculkan duluan melalui internet dan radio, “Start Bleeding” serta “Perak”. Kaya warnanya komposisi tembang di DGNR8 tergambar pula lewat diajaksertanya si hip hop living legend Morgue Vanguard alias Ucok Homicide di lagu “Abrasi”. Walau demikian, menurut Tony, benang merahnya tetaplah rock-n-roll. Mengenai resiko longsornya jumlah penggemar BRNDLS gara-gara formula anyar ini, Tony lanjut berujar frontal, “Gue dan Eka yakin, sebagian orang akan sangat suka dengan album ini, sedang sebagian lagi akan sangat tidak suka. Sekaligus menunjukkan apakah elo bener bener penggemar BRNDLS atau bukan.” Selain kepingan cakram padat audio, DGNR8 juga menyisipkan bonus menarik DGNR8: The DVD yang merupakan sepucuk film dokumenter tentang riuh rendah lintang pukang BRNDLS saat mengerjakan album ini.

Domestic chaos and prolonged internal problems in Indonesia has inspired The Brandals to write and release DGNR8 (read: ‘degenerate’). The latest album after a drought of four years is a tribute to the great nation of Indonesia, and how the band feels that the country has lost it’s way of late. This rather cynical viewpoint from the group that now prefers to call themselves ‘BRNDLS’ is further strengthened by the design of the album cover, which is in the shape of drug packaging. According to the band, DGNR8 is “a kind of drug offered to the sick people in the dilapidated condition of the nation”. Also with the progressive statements, the music direction has changed somewhat as well. The explosive approach of earlier efforts is now more controlled as the quartet grows older and more mature, but the foundation is still rock’n’roll. In one song, ‘Abrasi’, Eka Annash & co. even invited the hip hop living legend, Morgue Vanguard aka Ucok Homicide to rap. Other than the audio disc, this album has an interesting bonus too: DGNR8: The DVD, which is a documentary movie about the making of the album, including the behind the scenes story about the music and the dynamics of these angry young men.

INSPIRING EDUCATIONAL MOVEMENT To

improve education in Indonesia, a program called Indonesia Mengajar (Indonesia Teaches) is inspiring young people from any educational fields to be involved first hand with children around the nation by teaching them in school, for a minimal of one whole year. Their presence is to teach, educate, inspire, and also to abridge between the village life and the modern side of the world. Indonesia Mengajar focuses on teaching Elementary school, which in their view is an important stage of development and very crucial in a child’s future. Also, according to statistics report, the qualities of Elementary school teachers are the least of other grades, and about 75% of them don’t have college degrees. That is why this program is emphasized on Elementary grade. The brightest graduates of Indonesia are selected from many of the nation’s University. The selection is based on achievements and performances both on and off the campus, also physical and mental endurance, and other important criteria. And of course, the willingness to be placed in a remote region is a key criteria. According to Anies Baswedan—the founder of the program, young people’s involvement in Indonesia Mengajar will sprout deep empathy on to them

beatmag.com 038

like grass roots absorbing the soil it lives in, which will be one of the essential and important characteristics they will need in order to compete in the global environment. These fresh graduates might endure several challenges while living in remote areas, such as no network coverage for cell phones in certain areas, which in result they might have to go on a few hours bus or boat ride to make a phone call. Or to be up against a whole new culture alone, without a familiar friend beside them. And also, not all of these areas will have electricity or convenient roads and bridges to facilitate their days ahead. But this doesn’t stop them to make a difference for the future of education and to give back to their country. Like the program’s saying, “Setahun Mengajar, Seumur Hidup Menginspirasi”, which means “One Year Teaching, a Lifetime Inspiring”. For inspiring stories, photos, and descriptions on the program, or if you want a reminder on the next period for registration to be involved first hand, go to www.indonesiamengajar.org.

Rahmah is still as busy as ever, MCing, presenting her own TV show ‘Sarapan Pagi’, and being a "flowerpreneur" (a florist and entrepreneur at the same time) at her own flower shop. Luckily, the queen of breakfast TV took time out from her busy schedule to give us a rundown of what tunes make her tick...

What music are you into at the moment? Instrumental music by Dustin O'Halloran. He's an indie pianist living in a small Berlin town who made it to Hollywood. My favourites are ‘Lumiere’ and ‘We Move Lightly’. It takes me to a place I never thought existed every time I listen to it. Amazing. What was the first record you bought? Any interesting story behind it? ‘Candy Candy’, the soundtrack. I bought it when I was still little. It's the soundtrack of the most popular Japanese cartoon television series that aired in the 80's in Indonesia. At that time the world was just like a garden of candy… So naive, stress-free. Oh, how I miss Candy Candy... What are your all-time favourite albums? Why? My all time favourite albums would be anything by Simply Red, Michael Jackson, Sade, Feist, or Kings of Convenience. Never bored of them! What was the worst record you ever purchased? Had no experience of it. Who do you want to be, other than yourself, next time you reincarnate? Maybe the ocean. Living happily with other fishes in the sea with so many beautiful coral reefs... I could see the sun, moon, stars, sky, pearls, sands, etc. What song/album do you choose to start your weekend? Anything from Matias Aguayo. Totally love it. It's just “oh yeah…!!!” And song you choose to end your weekend? Of course ‘Roller Skate’ by Matias Aguayo. The music is really cool. Have a listen so you know that I'm not lying! Very sexy, as well. [Rudolf Dethu]

EASY WAYS TO GO GREEN

When you hear the term ‘go green’, what do you think? Compromise of quality? Well, it doesn’t have to be that way. It’s not a complete change of lifestyle. You can start with little things you can do at home or work. It’s time to give back to mother nature, instead of taking away from her most of the time. Here are some ways:

1

Use energy saving light bulbs. It costs a little more, but in the long run you’ll save a lot more. Discipline yourself in unplugging chargers and devices you don’t need. Don’t leave them lying around if they’re not being used.

2

3

Plant trees around the house strategically, if possible shade the air-conditioner unit from the sun to save energy in heating and cooling. If the weather permits, turn off your airconditioner and open up the windows and doors, and enjoy the fresh air.

5

Do all your bill payments online to save energy going out in the car. Wash clothes in cold water whenever possible. Heating water in washing machines takes up a lot of energy.

From Chamber Music to Beethoven

By Erza S.T.

Symphonies Usually, Indonesian classical musicians seem to get energised to showcase their great talents at beginning of summertime. Since that time is nigh on upon us, prepare yourself for some seriously great musical treats. The first half of July is definitely an ideal time for some good old Lieder and Beethoven. So, let us begin with the Chamber Music Recital.

Chamber Music Recital 7 July from 7.30pm Erasmus Huis For more information: +62 821 2254 2501 Beethoven Night 4 10 July from 5pm Aula Simfonia Jakarta For more information: +62 21 6586 7808 or boxoffice@aulasimfoniajakarta.com

050 | 050 beatmag.com

n this upcoming July 7th, a big group of Indonesia’s best classical musicians will join this recital that focuses on chamber music compositions and Lieder (also known as art songs). Renowned senior musicians such as Binu D. Sukaman (soprano), Joseph Kristanto (baritone), Tommy Prabowo (piano), Adelaide Simbolon (piano), Iswargia Sudarno (piano), Asep Hidayat (cello) will share the stage and experience with younger talented musicians like Sheila Pietono (piano), D’Java Quartet, Dwi Hanggana Pratala (cello), Ikhsan Amran (viola) and plenty of others. In total, 25 very talented Indonesian classical musicians will be on one stage performing various chamber music compositions and art songs such


Classicalmusic as Schubert’s ‘Der Hirt auf dem Felsen’, Barber’s ‘Dover Beach’, Beethoven and Mendelssohn’s Piano Trio and even Martinu’s Flute Trio. There is no point writing about the great achievements that each musician here has achieved, it is simply best to see them directly on stage so that you can witness and experience their greatness. Following this fantastic recital is a selection of Beethoven Symphonies. Part of Aula Simfonia Jakarta’s monthly program, Jakarta Simfonia Orchestra under the lead of Dr. Stephen Tong as conductor is back with more Beethoven greatness in ‘Beethoven Night 4’. This time, they’ve chosen something that is world renowned - none other then the incredible ‘Symphony No. 5’. Beethoven’s fifth symphony in C minor, Op. 67 is without a doubt the most popular and best-known composition in all of classical music, and one of the most oft-played symphonies. This symphony, especially the four-note opening motifs in particular, are well known worldwide, and has even appeared in popular culture disco and rock’n’roll songs as well as in films and on television.

However, aside from this legendary piece, the orchestra will also perform Beethoven’s ‘Symphony No. 2’ as well as ‘Piano Sonata Op. 27 no. 1’ featuring the wunderkind pianist Kevin Suherman. The soon-to-be seventeen year-old pianist has already had an impressive career considering his young age. Beginning to learn piano at the age of five, Kevin surprised Indonesia by performing 50 of the world’s best classical and jazz songs nonstop without having any music sheets at all, which earned him a special award from the Indonesian Record Museum (MURI). His amazing talent has brought him to perform as soloist in many countries from Austria, Beijing and Singapore. I am quite excited to see how Kevin has grown up, and now he will have the added bonus of maturity to go with his impeccable technique and musical interpretation. Definitely not to be missed! So there you have it classical music lovers: two fantastic quality classical music performances. Make sure to book your reservation in advance.

LOKANANTA Terrace Resto

A

cozy restaurant on Jalan Panglima Polim area has been one of the darlings of Jakarta’s food lovers since 2003. Loosely translated, Lokananta means a lounge where the gods like to chill, hang out and listen to music. Or something to that effect. At any rate, there are certainly plenty of us mortals that have made this eatery a favourite, and when they decided to spread their wings, Gandaria City mall was the venue of choice. Lokananta opened their second outlet on September 2010. The casual elegance of the décor is complimented nicely with some fake foliage, giving it a ‘terrace’ feel. Some of the crowd favourites like the triple sausage (50k), oxtail dishes (65-68k), and ribs (60k) are available, but they also have some new beatmag.com 054

items on the menu of late. We started with the potato nachos with strawberry salsa sauce (27k). Forget what you know about Mexican style nachos, this is a cute twist to the old favourite. The traditional toppings of cheese, pico de gallo, and jalapeños are still there, but the tortilla chips are replaced with potato ones and the salsa is entirely new. The blend of strawberry, avocado, tomato and a good dose of chili peppers will definitely make your taste buds dance! Kudos for a good creation like this. Next up, we got to try their new dishes. The grilled salmon (90k) tickled our fancy, with the succulent fish grilled to perfection, accompanied by potato wedges and mixed veggies. The special lemon garlic butter tomato sauce made it all the

more mouthwatering. If you like, you can have the salmon pan fried as well. Afterwards came the steak and rice (95k for tenderloin, or 90k for rib eye), which is a simple dish that hits all the right spot. The juicy steak is put on a bed of rice and served with a side of vegetables and teriyaki sauce. An excellent combo. If you’re that into meat, here’s something that’ll make you jump for joy: the Lokananta meat lover (300k). Well, actually up to four people can enjoy this monster dish.You get four kinds of meat: 200g of tenderloin, 200g of sirloin, 250g of rib eye, plus two pieces of grilled chicken. Now there’s a meaty marvel if I ever saw one! All the steaks and chicken are grilled beautifully, and they come with a couple

of sauces (mushroom and black pepper), mashed potato, and some rye bread. Brilliant! Lokananta has some excellent refreshing drinks of choice. We suggest the green beret which is cabbage (yes, cabbage!), pineapple, and orange (18k). The Lychee Punch features lychee, strawberry and yoghurt (25k), and the choco float consists of choco blend, vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce, plus an Astor choco stick. Take your pick, they’re all awesome! It’s easy to see why Lokananta is the restaurant of choice of many for so long. The top quality ingredients, creative dishes and drinks, and a welcoming ambiance rank high on all counts. Well recommended. (Budi Iskandar) 055 beatmag.com

AVORIO Ristorante Italiano & Bar

Yeah, it may be inside a mall, but brace yourself for an amazing Italian epicurean experience that is uniquely Avorio!

I

t was one of those mini reunions. Some old high school buddies and I had been planning a night out for a while now, and since a couple of us who live outside of Indonesia happened to be in town, it was the perfect occasion for our meeting. We wanted an Italian dinner, and decided on Avorio at Plaza Senayan. Since its inception almost three years ago, this stylish restaurant has been serving a mix of hearty classic Italian bistro fare and modern creations. The decor is modern, but with a bit of retro tastefully thrown in. We especially liked the wine cabinet and the Italian posters on the wall. It’s always nice to see your old friends, and very soon our conversation started to flow freely. (thanks in no small part to the first bottle of wine). The corkage fee at Avorio starts from 200k for regular wine and spirits, and goes up to 250k for the premium stuff.

But now it was time to eat. We started with the vitello tonnato (68k). This appetizing dish of thinly sliced roasted veal with tuna mayonnaise foam looks like a work of art on the plate. The meat is succulent, and the sauce superb. We also tried the pan fried scallops (110k), which consisted of pieces of giant scallops with balsamic spinach topped with crispy ham.What a great way to start our dinner! On to the pasta dishes.

Speak Your Heart, Get Famous and Live The Legacy!

Ketiga film berikut mungkin terkesan nano-nano tapi justru menjadi campuran hiburan yang enak untuk kamu nikmati selama 2 minggu ke depan di bioskop kesayangan. Belajar untuk utarakan hatimu jika selama ini kamu ternyata mencintai tunangan sahabat baikmu, cobalah menjadi pembunuh berantai jika kamu ingin terkenal, dan temukan jati dirimu dari catatan harian seorang legenda.

Something Borrowed Romance, Comedy. Director: Luke Greenfield. Writer: Jennie Synder. Cast: Kate Hudson, Ginnifer Goodwin, Colin Egglesfield, John Krasinki. Rachel (Ginnifer Goodwin, He’s Not That Just Into You) adalah seorang pengacara handal di kota New York. Ketika dulu dia masih kuliah, dia naksir dengan Dex (Colin Egglesfield, Must Love Dogs), tapi terlalu malu untuk mengungkapkan perasaannya. Dan ketika Dex bertemu dengan Darcy (Kate Hudson, Bride Wars), sahabat baik Rachel, mereka pun tak lama kemudian berpacaran dan bertunangan. Di saat pesta ulang tahun Rachel, dan dengan bantuan sedikit alkohol, dia mengutarakan perasaannya ke Dex yang pada ujungnya dengan mereka tidur bersama. Mereka berdua pun berusaha untuk melupakan kejadian itu dan menyembunyikannya dari Darccy. Ethan, sahabat Rachel pun mengingatkan dirinya kalau dia akan menghabiskan seluruh hidupnya menyesal jika dia tidak berbuat apapun tentang perasaannya ke Dex. Diadaptasi dari novel berjudul sama karya Emily Giffin, “Something Borrowed” mungkin akan terkesan layaknya tipikal film komedi romantis lainnya. Memang tidak banyak hal baru yang bisa kita harapkan dari genre ini, karena dari dulu semua film komedia romantsi pasti selalu mengikuti formula skenario yang sudah ada. Bagaimanapun, yang menjadi ketertarikan dari film ini adalah duo aktris Ginnifer Goodwin dan Kate Hudson yang justru membuat adegan-adegan klise menjadi tidak basi dan terlihat lebih dekat dengan yang sering terjadi dalam kehidupan kita sehari-hari. Ajak serta pacar dan sahabat baikmu untuk nonton bareng agar lebih dapat dramanya! Rachel (Ginnifer Goodwin - He’s Not That Just Into You) is a talented attorney, a loyal friend, unhappily single, and has had a crush on Dex (Colin Egglesfield - The Good Guy) who happens to be her best friend Darcy’s, fiancé. Leading up to their wedding, Rachel finds herself in an impossible situation between her treasured friendship and the love of her life. Something Borrowed is formulaic at best, with nothing new in particular, but nevertheless it’s an enjoyable romp that is best watched with your other half. Make sure you hold the right guy’s hand in the cinema!

Blitz Suspense, Drama. Director: Elliott Lester. Writers: Nathan Parker. Cast: Jason Statham, Paddy Considine, Aidan Gillen, Zawe Ashton.

Ketika seorang psikopat beraliaskan “Blitz” membunuh rekan-rekan polisi Brant satu per satu dan menjadi

sensasi media massa, Brant pun ditugaskan untuk bekerja sama dengan inspektur Nash (Paddy Considine, The Bourne Ultimatum) untuk menangkap Blitz. Walaupun begitu, untuk meringkus dan memenjarakan Blitz ternyata tidak semudah yang mereka pikirkan. Cerita dari film ini diadaptasi dari novel “Blitz” karya Ken Bruen yang juga menulis novel “London Boulevard” yang telah rilis menjadi film juga tahun lalu. Nama sutradara dan penulis film “Blitz” ini masih termasuk dalam jajaran pemula, namun dengan adanya jajaran pemain seperti Jason Statham dan Aidan Gillen yang terkenal membintangi beberapa serial televisi di Inggris, film yang berlokasikan di London ini akan mempunyai ketertarikannya sendiri. Masih ingat dengan film criminal legendaris seperti “Se7en” dan “Zodiac”? Nah, film ini akan membawa kembali nuansa tersebut yang akan membuat kamu tegang dan geregetan dalam waktu bersamaan. Berlatihkan untuk memfasihkan aksen Inggrismu sebelum nonton film ini!

Detective sergeant Brant (Jason Statham - The Expendables) is dispatched to take down a serial killer who has been targeting police officers from his station. Adapted from a novel written by Ken Bruen, the author of ‘London Boulevard’, this film reflectsthe drama of challenges faced by police working in a modern, multicultural society. It’s not exactly goundbreaking, but it’s a good enjoyable crime suspense movie nonetheless. Dig out your double-breasted coat, get your best British accent on and get on the case!

Catatan Harian Si Boy Drama. Director: Putrama Tuta. Writers: Priesnanda Dwisatria and Ilya Sigma. Cast: Ario Bayu, Carissa Puteri, Poppy Sovia, Paul Foster, Abimana Setya, Onky Alexander, Didi Petet. Natasha (Carissa Puteri, Ayat-Ayat Cinta) pulang dari London untuk menemui ibunya, Nuke, yang terbaring sakit dan dokter pun sudah menyerah. Di saat sekarat itu, Nuke tidak pernah lepas memegang sebuah buku, dan Natasha pun memutuskan untuk mencari pemiliknya agar ibunya senang di akhir hayatnya. Dalam satu kejadian, Natasha berakhir di kantor polisi dengan Satrio (Ario Bayu, Pintu Terlarang) dan beberapa pembalap liar lainnya. Satrio pun tertarik dengan Natasha dan memutuskan untuk membantu Natasha mencari pemilik buku bernama Boy (Onky Alexander) yang dipegang ibunya. Dalam usaha mereka, cinta segitiga pun timbul, para preman menjadi masalah dan kekerasan terjadi. Apakah Boy masih seperti yang tergambarkan di buku hariannya itu? Film Catatan Harian Si Boy ini merupakan sebuah regenerasi dari seri Catatan Si Boy yang menjadi ikon di tahun 80an. Dengan ide cerita yang sederhana, jalan cerita yang tetap dibuat berdasarkan khas Catatan Si Boy dulu, dan para bintang muda Indonesia yang sedang bersinar, Catatan Harian Si Boy versi 2011 ini akan tampil lebih segar, seru dan menyenangkan bagi anak muda sekarang dan tetap mempunyai nilai nostalgia bagi generasi yang dulu mengikuti serial maupun film layar lebarnya. Salah satu film lokal Indonesia yang diantisipasi tinggi oleh para penggemar film di tahun ini, jadi pastikan dirimu juga ikutan ngantri untuk bertemu mas Boy! Based on the iconic Indonesian 80s serial, this new Catatan Harian Si Boy is not a re-make, but more of regeneration with fresher cast that still keeps the spirit of the original. The story idea is simple: a man finds the best of himself in reaching his dream with guidance from a certain someone’s diary. It will appeal to young people today in it’s own right, whilst also being nostalgic for those who used to follow and admire the 80’s version.

Five Items to Get You through the Acne Phase I’ve been having a very uncomfortable situation with my skin lately, where acne seems to pop up every other day because of hormonal imbalances. My skin isn’t exactly acne prone, but I’m sure there are many women out there who experience the same problems as I do due to the monthly visitor...

beatmag.com 060


Style Here are five items that I found really help me to get through those weeks where my skin is just not playing ball: 1. Mentholatum Acne Foaming Wash (around Rp 25,000) This is an acne treatment product that is very easy to use, all you need to do is press the pump head and it will dispense a ping pong ball sized blob of foam right away. It has a nice, soft mandarin scent and is able to remove excess sebum and dirt without being too drying. The key ingredient here is isopropylmethylphenol, that will remove bacteria from your skin and help prevent acne from getting any worse. 2.Kiehl’s Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion (Rp 295,000 for 250ml) This actually feels too harsh on my dry skin under normal conditions, but it’s perfect for when skin is extra oily because this blue astringent toner really helps in drying out the acne. It also helps the healing process. 3.Menard Beauness S (Rp 660,000) I’ve written a full review on Beauness S before. Not only does it help your skin in times of change, but also it will help to soothe your acne. You won’t really see the difference right away, but with Beauness S I found acne gets better faster. 4. My Beauty Diary Mask at Moporie (Rp 18,000 each) Because I’ve been depriving my skin of any excess moisturizer with this routine, I opt for My Beauty Diary Mask to give me a soothing and cooling effect. Even though they come in a various berry scents, I choose the yoghurt range because it controls excess sebum, and will dry off to a nice matte finish. In this condition, what I want is a skin that is hydrated enough but not creating too much sebum to aggravate the condition of my acne. 5.Clinique Acne Solutions Spot Healing Gel (Rp 235,000) This is a treatment to heal the acne. It dries to a nice clear film so you won’t be having any trouble if you want to wear makeup. I found this is one of the best acne spot treatments that I’ve ever tried because it really does help heal acne fast.

I used these products only when my skin is in acne prone situation. As for the moisturizer, to make sure that my face gets hydrated enough I opt for moisturizer that targets sensitive skin during this period. Amalia - editor of www.fashionesedaily.com – Style & Beauty with Attitude

Breathtaking D ressesb y S eb a sti a n Gunawan

I couldn’t be more thankful to be among the people who watched Sebastian Gunawan’s fashion show last night. Even though I always knew that his creations are undoubtedly beautiful, the dresses showcased in the fashion show titled ‘Reflections of You’ still completely amazed me.

Since the beginning of his fashion career in 1993, Seba has tailored his designs and creations to celebrate women’s beauty. No wonder that his signature styles are feminine, classic, elegant, slim and sophisticated. In this annual fashion show, Seba in collaboration with Christina Panarese presented 77 cocktail dresses and evening gowns from his first line ‘Sebastian Gunawan’ for 2012, and also eight wedding dresses from ‘Sebastian’s Sposa’. The designer explained that ‘Reflections of You’ is “all about women who live today and whose style is trendy to reflect their personalities. It’s also

beatmag.com 062

about bringing back old fashion elements to inspire future fashion trends”. Each of these styles was found in the fashion show: from soft and feminine to unique and playful dresses. Drapery has dominated Seba’s designs since his first fashion show in 1993, and now he has developed it into various styles with modern techniques. Not only for light fabrics, but also thick materials, indeed the photos show that most of his creations feature drapery. Slim waists with big skirts were also seen on the runway, with accessories from Rinaldy A Yunardi complementing Seba’s dresses.

Manipulated Pe r c e p t i o n Caught By the Lens

T

he four photography series in New Folder exhibition fall neatly into two categories based on the photographer’s approach to the idea and reality. The categories are ‘performative’ photography and ‘staged’ photography. At glance, both have almost the same method, the difference lies in the level of intervention and the relationship between objects in reality. In performative photography, the artist engineers an event that has almost no basis in reality, forming a fiction or a particular metaphor as a vehicle for ideas that they want to convey. The artist has total control over the objects in the picture frame. In ‘Invisible’ by Arif, we can see his intervention shaping the percieved reality. The thought expressed in this series is on the experience of seeing and being seen in a materialistic culture. With this concept, he states that being marginal means being invisible. Figures are camouflaged in the work interacting with other characters nearby including rickshaw drivers, itinerant food vendors and housewives. Pungky’s performative approach is to create a kind of imitation of animals, more specifically the anatomy of animals. He directs and choreographs the anatomically shaped and adjustable artworks, creating a fiction that reveals a somewhat unique perspective on human and animal behaviour. Of course, there is no counterpart of reality in both series, since the figures are not really complete. This is just fiction, a fictitious event that brings another meaning. In staged photography, events are engineered, styled and directed to produce dramatisation rather than forming a new event or a fictional event. Here, the

beatmag.com 066


Art

models portray themselves and dramatise their own lives. The recorded events are real but enhanced by small changes or certain elements. The works of Fehung portray mothers and fathers in clearly staged poses. He directs the poses, but they still act as themselves in their own context and place. This clearly demonstrates the artist’s intention that events are not important, nor are they a metaphor that brings meaning beyond itself. Abud documents the similarities between some individuals. He compels them to use the same clothes and poses. The results show how easy it is to manipulate the perception of a real person who is nothing more, nothing less than human. The strengths of both series lie in the ability to associate themselves with the audience’s experience. In the hands of contemporary artists, photography becomes an extremely powerful tool for expressing ideas, not just to preserve memory. Its strength lies in the linkage of the representation of reality. Recorded events have always been important, yet

we are always amazed at the mysteries that arise from the notion that a photograph is not always really ‘true’. @ribosa New Folder Inkubator, in collaboration with Ruang Mes56 Yogyakarta Artists/photographers: • Aderi Putra Wicaksono (Pungky) • Andri William (Abud) • AriefPristianto • YudhaKusuma Putra (Fehung) Curator: Akiq AW Date: June 4 - 25 Venue: Inkubator, Forme Building, Jl.

rom buoys used as a coolant bottles to brushes made into lampshades, Rada Beda (Somewhat Different) Contemporary Design and the Power of Convention exhibition displays works that do not fit with conventional design. Furniture workmanship and design have combined to create objects of pure function and form that go beyond what people have imagined before. Design diversity is clearly illustrated by the presence of different works and the total number of objects presented. This exhibition presents a body of work that deviates from the convention based on function, material selection, construction and intentions. Three designers from Bandung - Faisal Habibi, WiyogaMuhardanto and YuliPrayitno - will add to the exhibition and bring the Indonesian context to it. The designs do not only provoke astonishment, but challenge one to reflect on general expectations and codes of behavior as well as the referential context of firmly established notions, prompting viewers to review traditional fixations. It is these ‘breaks with the power of convention’ which uncover the various socio-cultural changes that today we face in our daily lives, reflected in the changing trends of mobility, migration, changes in eating patterns and much more.

Overall, the exhibition tries to answer the challenge from curator Volker Albus: “Design differently from the way you have always designed”. Although something may be based on a complex idea, the design must be simple and be understood easily. Design is something that continually deviates from the normal, and likely the result will be an unexpected surprise. @ribosa RADA BEDA: DesainKontemporerdanKuasaKebiasaan InstitutfürAuslandsbeziehungene.V. / Goethe¬InstitutIndonesien Artists: 47 German artists, 20 artists from other European countries, and 3 Indonesian designers from Bandung (Faisal Habibi, WiyogaMuhardanto and YuliPrayitno) Curator: Volker Albus and Enin Supriyanto Date: June 15 – 27 Venue: GaleriNasional Indonesia, Jl.

ELECTROFUX (DJ, Producer, Indie Electronic Hero)

A man of high dedication to electronic music, still working the low ground and campaigning for the pride of playing in clubs with artsier crowds, or producing and mixing Dub Step. Over to you, Iman Electrofux... You seem to be addicted to the electronic music movement. Which part of it still keeps you interested? I’m a fan of electronic hardware. From hobby to movement, I never had a dream of being famous. I just wanted to introduce people to that these tools that can help us craft some good music. It all started in 1992, later ELECTROFUX formed in 1997. The spirit is to proceed the passion within this journey so I can see more Indonesian electronic bands or people starting to use electronic hardware like I do. Electronic musicians (especially beat producers) meditate on their sound for days or weeks. Is Iman one of those? Tell us the most unusual production or mixing experience... When I create music it can take weeks, but to get the feel right I can do it in 24 hours. Depends on the mood, like Yacko’s song ‘Jangan Berisik’ (don’t be noisy), I created it in 24 hours and 24 hours more of mixing. For unusual gigs, I played once in front of a warung muslim, just right in front of it. In the

Gilis I played in front of a hotel room with a little bit of Dubstep in it…hahahah. At Batu Karas, me and Rock&Roll Mafia set up our gear and played at the hotel Itu. The owner loved it since we brought entertainment for the guests. In a previous interview a few years ago you mentioned “these tools are my escape”. Tell us how far music can effect your personal psychology. These electronic hardware machines are actually what keep me alive, ‘cause I have nothing but skill, and I don’t really know what other potential I have. I’ve spent hours, days, weeks pushing and controlling these buttons around, so frankly I don’t have time to think much, everything is spontaneous. Every kind of music gives different nuances, rock, funk, breakbeat, drum&bass or even dubstep. From these machines I can reprogram songs I like. About psychology, maybe I’m a lunatic after all! Haha, something in my mindset is not normal, that’s what my friends say. I once had a period of depression. But these machines finally made me a useful person after all.


Feature Specs? MX-1 Electribe Korg (2 unit) Korg Kaos Pad KP3 Korg Analog Modelling Synthesizer Vestax VCI-300 MacBook Pro Behringer mixer 1846 You have played far and wide, any interesting stories? I’ve been playing gigs in Sweden, Thailand, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur. Most memorable is Thailand Koh Pahngan & Kuala Lumpur. Koh Pahngan 96, it happened by coincidence - another DJ from France was supposed to play but since he consumed too many mushrooms he became the crowd, hahaha. So I stepped onto the decks with a cd player and a double tape deck. Funny story is that I had to rewind the tapes with a pencil hahahahahah! But the night was so fun. Kuala Lumpur, has the craziest crowd and I learned lots of Dubstep from there with Ejan & Anowl Gazi (Resistive) & Bud Culture since they sent different Dubstep influences my way. Pushing this far for a career under the name of Electrofux in Bali... Has it been a long holiday or a dragging struggle? Bali is home for me, 10 years and counting now and I’ve fallen in love with the island. I will not move to another place in the world. Once I move, I may be overloaded with party life and such, but this is never for long, I’d miss Bali too much. It’s like a calling from back home. The most beautiful place is when you can have a holiday and work in one place. Here I can spread the music influences. Once I gave some tracks to a Japanese guy, 2 years later he became a famous DJ thanks to my songs. When he came back to Bali and met me, I didn’t even have the songs anymore hahaha! Weird story. Electrofux in five years?

hearted and the next coming year the remix hits no.1 at Radio Paranoia. I’d rather go with the flow aja. If you do good things, you will get a good outcome. You introduced dubstep to the island. What’s next? Heheheh not really, Reno Pratama & Andi Bogel are the ones who introduced it to me first, I just stretched the genre. I was once kicked out from my workplace for playing too much Dubstep, but after two months my remix hit no.1 on the radio and from there on I got sponsored by Obey, Famous Stars & Straps, Vestal, Macbeth, Skull Candy, Potmeetspop, Cotton Colony and Pukulrata Clothing. Touring Asia sponsored by Obey, came from the dubstep… So the next step is to just do what I like and create as many dubstep gigs as I can. But it’s a bit hard since sometimes in a Dubstep gig, chaos happens and club owners are afraid of these demonic troops hahahah. I get emails and messages on Facebook from France, Germany, UK, US etc just asking when is the next gig. Almost five years playing Dubstep and now I can feel the progress. I hope Indonesia will accept Dubstep. Shoutout to Beatmag… Watch out for Radical Regime’s Dubstep gig with ELECTROFUX & JonskeeMC, every Friday at Submerge drum&bass/dubstep gig at Mbargo and be prepared for HeartCandle Bali’s born breed Dubstep producers & Dunie (Oracle Lab) for his Drum&Bass gigs. My new project ‘Le Fux’ with Lucyna Ciaston (Poland),we will be doing live PA/DJ sets of funk & other things. Please keep Bali clean cause its my home, you wouldn’t want me to come and trash your home right?

Interview by : Dedi Kristian

A difficult question since I only can think until tomorrow. I’m not a fan of planning. Depends on the project though, like Yacko’s song ‘Jangan Berisik’ I don’t think of anything but to do the remix full

G i on Japanese Resto & Cafe

Looking for a smart yet informal dining spot for when you fancy going a bit Japanese? Recently opened Gion Japanese Resto & CafĂŠ is the place writes Dan Ashcroft. beatmag.com 084


Food I feel that I’m pretty well qualified to have an opinion on Japanese restaurants since my better half is from the land of the rising sun, and so has dragged me around most of the Japanese eateries in town. Evoking the Kyoto style (I’m reliably informed), the restaurant itself sits upstairs at Gosyen Hotel and definitely gives off that urban cool vibe – like you are back in the big city instead of on a tropical island. Smartly decked out in bold blacks and reds with minimalist lines and traditional stone murals the interior does a good job of making sure you get into the Japanese ambience before perusing the vast menu options. Helpfully numbered for each item, everything you’d expect (and some things you wouldn’t) is featured on the menu, which treads a neat line between traditional and modern.Tempura and sashimi sit alongside fusion rolls and even a few Western offerings like pastas and steaks. A selection of appetizers, salads and light bites such as the tempura ramen noodles are perfect for kicking off proceedings, but if you’re anything like me then you’ll order up a hot green tea and bowl of salty, steaming edamame (10k++).The very epitome of morish, I could quite happily throw these beans down all evening, but tonight of course, there’s work to be done. this area since sashimi + wasabi + pickled ginger + soy = a very happy food reviewer, so I’ll just say Our smiling chef sends out his first creation for our that the fish itself is as fresh and succulent as you’ll noshing pleasure in the form of the beef carpaccio find anywhere.

Dynamic Duo plus One

L

ike Batman and Robin, Hungarian DJs Myon and Shane 54 swooped down to Klapa to give the crowd a taste of their house music sets aided by Armin Van Buuren’s vocalist Aruna. First up on deck duty was Aruma, but this time she let the decks do the singing while bikini dancers kept the heat up. The crowd consisted of members from 14 car clubs in Bali and a motorbike club all up to party until dawn. As the night continued to get rowdier, Myon and Shane 54 took their places in the booth to unleash their musical justice that had everyone’s heads nodding until the end of the show.

They Come a Wailing…

T

he Babylon of Kuta, Hard Rock Café, hosted The Wailers to an overtly enthusiastic crowd. Although many of the original Wailers were not present, the band belted out all the fan favourites that put reggae and Jamaica on the pop culture map. It’s very rare to go to a show where everyone knows all the lyrics to every song. Although we’ll never be able to see a Bob Marley live in concert, everyone was Bob Marley that night and that’s what made it special.

Beauty and the Beats Returns…

O

Not alone on the decks, she shared duties with French DJ Pablo Valentino as they took turns entertaining the mainly expat crowd.

t seemed that this weekend many clubs were showcasing spectacular collaborations, and Deejay Club not wanting to miss out, presented the thumping combo of DJ Andre Dunant on the decks and Vera bashing the drums. A wonderful and harmonious partnership that had everyone dancing until the sun was already high in the sky.

ell known Bali punk rock band, Superman is Dead collaborated with the big daddy of the Indonesian dance scene, DJ Romy for an unexpecting mash up of great tunes. SiD were up first performing three of their thrashing hits, before the curtains came down to show DJ Romy on the decks, ready to mix it up with the boys. The combo of punk rock and dancing beats had everyone dancing, before SiD left Romy to fend for himself and end the show in style.
