Pick up The Beat Jakarta in selected nightlife venues around Jakarta, Starbucks and selected Circle K, Starmart, Hero stores. A full list of venues and distribution pionts is on

In this week’s TBJ we have made a couple of changes in the layout of the magazine. We’re splitting up the ThereThen section from the What’s On and putting it into the back area to bring more prominence to the rest of the content in the magazine, namely the feature stories, food section, arts and more. Some people appear to forget what the beat magazine is actually about, which is providing a source of entertainment information in all its forms so we’ve decided to make it clearer. Partying sure is fun but there is more to it than that. We eat, we drink and we be merry in this town and when people are working so hard it is essential to get some time off and find a bit of rest and relaxation. That includes of course dining, seeing live music, watching movies, visiting museums or art galleries and the quintessential clubbing. Also in this edition we have more insights on life in Jakarta with Jim Read’s ongoing commentary on all things Big Durian. This week he’s focusing on the slowly run-down Busway buses and the measures that must be taken to address the situation. Dethu is reviewing a duo playing some great folk alternative to rave reviews around town and then the girls from fashiondaily set us again in the right direction in being fashionable people, as we all should be of course. New writer Marcel informs us of the highs and lows of local concert video production in a piece about a concert late last year, Djakarta Atmosphere and Budi is out and about dining in the better restaurants bringing us all the juice on the culinary movements around town. There are also stories on classical music, film, the arts, shops and more so take a good look inside and tell us what you think of it by sending an email to Go on, do it now. Have a good couple of weeks, folks.

Has Been

DJ yang satu ini punya pengalaman kerja yang unik sebagai seorang DJ. Fadlie, pada tahun 2002, bergabung pada sebuah kapal pesiar asal Belanda untuk menjadi DJ selamat dua tahun disana.

Posisi terakhirnya, Fadlie sudah menjadi salah satu resident di Second Floor, dan posisi sebagai urutan DJ di Indonesia versi REDMA 2011, Fadlie ada di urutan nomer 14. Sebagai DJ lokal pun, Fadlie sudah pernah mendampingi nama besar DJ internasional seperti Jean Claude Ades, King Unique, Kasey Taylor, Grant Nelson dan nama lainnya. DJ Fadlie has quite a unique DJ story. In 2002, he joined with a Dutch cruise ship as a DJ for two years. After returning home, a few clubs invited him to join their line ups as a resident DJ, such as BC Bar club, Retro, Blackpearl, 999, and Barcode. He is currently with Electrosoul and has won a variety of awards including the Heineken Thirst Senses as a finalist, as a runner up of Electro DJ at REDMA 2010, and Best Resident DJ of the Year for REDMA 2010.

Gpluck Soundslike The Beatles

Hails From

Jakarta, Indonesia

Hard Rock Cafe | Thursday 14 June

Have Been Banyak band yang tampil sebagai reinkarnasi dari grup legendaris asal Liverpool, The Beatles. Salah satu yang paling menonjol adalah band negeri sendiri yang bernama G-Pluck. Sesuai dengan namanya yang diartikan dengan kata ‘Jiplak’, band yang beranggotakan Awan (Vokal, Bass), Adnan (Vokal, Rhythm), Wawan (vokal, Lead guitar) dan Beni (vokal, drums) ini, menjiplak penampilan The Beatles yang hampir mirip dengan aslinya, termasuk pakaian dan juga membawakan lagu lagu mereka tanpa perubahan aransemen. Band yang terbentuk pada tahun 2000 ini, bahkan pernah menjadi satu satunya wakil Asia Tenggara yang tampil dalam acara The Beatles Week Festival yang digelar di Liverpool pada tahun 2008 lalu. Bisa dibilang, Gpluck merupakan salah satu band reinkarnasi The Beatles yang paling bagus di Indonesia. Many a band have been labeled as the reincarnation of that legendary Liverpool group, the Beatles. One local band that goes by the name G-Pluck is among them. As their name suggests (a word play that means ‘to copy’), members of G-pluck, Awan (vocal, bass), Adnan (vocal, rhythm guitar), Wawan (vocal, lead guitar), and Beni (vocal, drums) copy everything about the Beatles, like the outfit to the last detail, and performing Beatles’ songs in their original style. G-pluck was formed in 2000 and was the only band from South East Asia who performed at The Beatles Week Festival held in Liverpool in 2008. In other words, G-Pluck is one of the best Beatle incarnations in Indonesia.

are Now

Band ini masih terus tampil dalam berbagai acara; tak pernah berhenti mengumandangkan nostalgia The Beatles dalam setiap penampilannya. Salah satu acara yang akan menampilkan mereka, adalah Founder’s Day di Hard Rock Café Jakarta. Sesuai dengan tema kembali ke era 70an --saat kelahiran dari Hard Rock Café, Gpluck adalah band yang dianggap paling tepat untuk menjadi pengisi acaranya. Let’s get back to 60’s! The band still performs many events keeping the Beatles’ memory alive every time they come on stage. They will be on the bill for Founder’s Day at Hard Rock Café Jakarta. The event’s back to the 70s theme is a tribute to the birth of Hard Rock Café. G-Pluck is considered to be the right act for the right time to perform at this event. Let’s get back to the 60s!

DJ kotot Soundslike

RnB, Hip Hop

Hails From

Jakarta, Indonesia

immigrant | saturday 16 June | 10pm Has Been

Namanya Andre Kotot atau lebih dikenal dengan nama DJ Kotot. Awal karir sebagai DJ dimulai pada tahun 2002 dan secara profesional, Andre lebih serius mendalami bidang DJ bersama label Stylophonic di tahun 2004 lewat klab maupun acara berskala kecil. Semakin lama, acara besar dan klab besar pun disinggahinya, dan nama Kotot mulai sering menghiasi acara di Jakarta hingga kota besar lainnya di Indonesia. Bahkan, dalam peta musik RnB dan Hip Hop di Jakarta, Andre adalah salah satu DJ yang merupakan jaminan kualitas. Acara besar dari mulai dari Greenland, Aquasonic dan Soul Nation, dan klab seperti Embassy, Wonder Bar, Centro, Retro, Bliss, hingga klab Venue, Equinox, Blowfish, adalah nama dalam riwayat karirnya. Karena kualitas dan jam terbang yang tinggi, membuat Kotot menjadi salah satu resident di Immigrant, dan setiap hari Sabtu khusus musik Hip Hop dan RnB, nama Kotot pula yang ditunggu penampilannya oleh para pengunjung. His given name is Andre Kotot, but we know him as DJ Kotot. His career began in 2002, and professionally Andre wanted to be more serious learning the mysterious ways of the DJ and did so under the label Stylophonic in 2004 in clubs and small events. By the time he appeared at big clubs and events, his name started to fill the air around Jakarta. In fact, DJ Kotot was one of the few quality DJs who played RnB and hip hop music in Jakarta. Huge events such as Greenland, Aquasonic, and Soul Nation as well as clubs like Embassy, Wonder Bar, Centro, Retro, Bliss, Venue, Equinox, and Blowfish are places on his resume. This naturally led to a residency at Immigrant and which has a hip hop and RnB program every Saturday.

is Now

Masih sibuk dengan sering tampil di berbagai acara dengan musik Hip Hop dan RnB, DJ Kotot masih aktif menjadi resident di Immigrant bersama dengan DJ Lil’B. Namanya adalah kualitasnya, dan bagi Anda yang ingin membuktikannya, datang hari Sabtu malam ke Immigrant dan simak penampilan dari salah satu DJ Hip Hop dan RnB terbaik di Jakarta. Still busy with his appearances at many events, DJ Kotot is still an active resident at Immigrant along with DJ Lil’B. Come to Immigrant on Saturday night and see the performance of one of the best hip hop and RnB DJs in Jakarta.

Wrong! Sometimes maintenance and investment need to be prioritised

Equally, your car might not be working perfectly but as long you have it serviced regularly you might be able to avoid having to replace the engine entirely, provided your daily mileage is not too high.

Many people from a wide variety of backgrounds (expats included) obviously agree, judging by the passengers I see on the buses, which are frequently quite crowded during work hours. Route 1 seems to have become a victim of its own success. It has now been in operation for more than eight years and the vehicles are certainly showing the effects of the extreme wear and tear they suffer. Many are running well beyond their operational lifespan and require much more than routine servicing can provide in a workshop.

I suspect the woes that the Transjakarta Busway is now suffering may well be the result of a lack of foresight in budgetary arrangements when the service was first conceptualised a decade ago.

That’s just the vehicles. The bus shelters and linking walkways are subject to a daily pounding from thousands of footsteps and many are much the worse for wear. Many of the attempts at patching up damaged facilities are simply not up to the punishment they inevitably receive, day in day out.

This, coupled with careful selection of tenants, has ensured that the mall looks fresh and inviting, and functions as well as it did on the day it first opened.

All of this illustrates that while the statement in the title might be true for the individual, it doesn’t necessarily work for a corporation or major service provider: The sole on your shoe might be wearing out but you might delay repairing it for another month unless you wear it to walk many miles a day.

The sheer intensity of use of facilities available to the general public, particularly in a megacity like Jakarta, means that the budget for maintenance and replacement is equally if not more important than the resources set aside to establish the service in the first place.

It doesn’t necessarily have to be like that, though. Look at Plaza Senayan, which opened around 16 years ago. With great foresight, the developer and owners decided to use durable materials of the highest quality when constructing the building and to ensure it was maintained to the highest possible standard.

Compare it with other malls of a similar vintage where this kind of foresight was not adopted to the same degree: They are certainly showing their age and look well past their prime. Let’s hope the Jakarta city administration and operator do decide to “fix” the busway properly for it is currently one of the few (partial) success stories in a city beset by seemingly intractable mass transportation problems. (Jim Read)


ne of the most graphic media images in early June showed a Transjakarta bus on fire at the Hotel Indonesia roundabout. Apparently it was not just an isolated incident as 10 other vehicles have suffered a similar fate within the last year. As an occasional user of Busway Route 1, which runs from Blok M to Kota via Jl. Sudirman and Jl. Thamrin, I can vouch for how efficient and convenient the service can be, as you fly smugly past stationary traffic on both of these thoroughfares at peak times.

Celeb's Chosen Seven

Home of


erkenalkan: tristan. Memilih folk alternatif sebagai suguhan unggulan, paguyuban berkesenian beranggotakan dua pria, Andrie Ridwan (biduan, penulis lagu) serta Andrew Hutasoit (multi instrumentalis, komposer) ini baru saja beberapa pekan silam menerbitkan album perdananya, HOME. Andrie dan Andrew sejatinya telah berkawan dan berpadupadan di bidang musik sejak remaja. Kala harus berpisah menempuh pendidikan ke luar Jakarta setelah masa SMA pun keduanya masih giat bermusik di lingkungan barunya masingmasing—walau tanpa membuahkan karya berarti. Saat balik lagi ke ibukota, sebelas tahun kemudian, mereka merajut kembali benang persahabatan hingga berlanjut pada munculnya keseragaman visi, terealisasikan lewat kelahiran album mini berhiaskan 5 tembang plus kesepakatan menggunakan nama tristan sebagai identitas. Secara etimologis, “tristan” bermakna kesedihan, sendu-pilu, rasa lara. Namun bagi dwi musisi ini tristan lebih diartikan sebagai rumah, tempat dimana mereka merasa nyaman menemukan diri melalui guratan lirik dan nada. Keyakinan itu lalu direfleksikan saat meluncurkan album debutnya dengan memberinya judul: HOME. Bertaburkan 11 lagu dan dirilis via label indie demajors, nyaris semua yang tertuang di HOME berlirik Inggris. Hanya satu yang ditulis dalam Bahasa Indonesia dan bertajuk “Jelang Malam”. Yang menarik, justru komposisi dalam negeri ini yang mengantarkan tristan menjulang di puncak tertinggi jenjang tembang indie sebuah radio di Jakarta. Direkam seluruhnya di rumah dengan menggunakan teknik home-recording, tristan mengklaim pekat dipengaruhi oleh musisi dari rumpun sejenis seperti The Beatles, Radiohead, Nick Drake, Jon Brion, pula Brooke Fraser.

Andrie, yang bertugas menjaga kewibawaan syair di institusi tristan, mengungkapkan bagaimana ia mencoba menangkap kegelisahan dari kehidupan sehari-hari kemudian menuangkannya dari bermacam sudut pandang. “Lirik yang sederhana,” tambah Andrie, “Namun memliki makna yang mendalam secara universal, melodi dan harmoni yang mudah dicerna tapi tidak murahan, musik yang dimainkan secara jujur dari hati tanpa ada gangguan dari mana pun, itulah modal utama tristan untuk memperkenalkan diri kepada dunia.” “Kami bukan ingin menghibur orang-orang, karena bukan itu yang sesungguhnya mereka butuhkan saat ini. Yang mereka butuhkan sebenarnya inspirasi dan harapan, bukan sekadar hiburan banal yang bertujuan hanya untuk memberikan kesegaran sesaat,” pungkas Andrie dengan tegas. Simak lebih dekat dinamika tristan lewat situs resmi demajors www.demajors. com atau ikuti pergerakannya menit ke menit di Twitter melalui @tristanologi.

Consisting of 11 songs, only one is written in Indonesian, the rest are in English. However, the Indonesian one, “Jelang Malam”, was instantly appreciated by the Indonesian public and has reached top position on one of a Jakarta radio station’s indie chart.


f e a t u r e

Here comes tristan, an alternative folk duo who are currently much-loved by many a young adults in Jakarta. Two high-school friends are the main members, Andrie Ridwan (singer, songwriter) and Andrew Hutasoit (multi-instrumentalist, composer), and they have just released their full-length debut album, HOME.

Released under Demajors Records, all of the album material was intimately recorded at home, using what the band calls their “home-recording” technique. Presenting “Songbird” as their first single, Tristan’s musical style is, according to them, heavily infected by The Beatles, Radiohead, Nick Drake, Jon Brion and Brooke Fraser.

Artmosphere DVD

All photos courtesy of Djakarta Artmosphere and Kiky Makiah

Last year’s “Djakarta Artmosphere,” or simply “Djakmosphere,” music festival had its best lineup to date. So it only made sense that the newly released accompanying DVD would also prove to be a better viewing experience than its 2010’s choppy and rushed predecessor. From better shots of performances to a stronger sense of continuity, the “Djakarta Artmosphere 2011” DVD is a fairer representation of how the festival actually went down. For better or worse. DVD releases of local live performances are still in their infancy. Undetermined aesthetics and a lack of connection between cinematographers and the onstage production team often results in a perceptible disconnect between the visuals and sound. Instead of grabbing the most memorable moments and capturing the performers’ energy, many local music DVDs feel akin to watching a

sleepy arena act from the cheapest seats on the floor — a montage of stock footage that dulls rather than electrifies. Djakmosphere’s newest live concert film still has some of those flaws, but it compensates by smartly focusing on the day’s better performances. The festival’s gimmick is a simple yet intriguing one: Get iconic musicians from the past to collaborate with the most interesting artists of today, most from the independent scene. Last year’s lineup included old-school pop-rock titans Koes Plus and jazzy songstress Margie Segers in collaboration with rock ’n’ rollers The Brandals and theatrical singer-songwriter Sarasvati. Opening with collaboration between husbandand-wife acoustic duo Endah N Rhesa and Segers, the concert film gets off to a good start. Endah N Rhesa’s breezy flourishes make for a natural pairing with Segers’s similar vocals.

f e a t u r e


The DVD shows them collaborating on two covers — by vaunted Indonesian artists George Leiwakabessy and Charles Hutagalung ¬— which lets both the duo and Segers showcase their styles. The cinematography confusingly switches between artistic and stoically uninspired, but there’s enough movement in the performance to make for enjoyable viewing.

Members of the band’s stage crew make repeated appearances on stage to seemingly warn the band of sound issues and allotted stage time, which would be fine had this been a live broadcast. But the general feeling is that such scenes should have been edited out. Djakmosphere’s collaboration concept is exciting, ideally resulting in both parties challenging and bringing out the best in each other. But perhaps due to a lack of time or other factors, it still needs work. This is most clear in Sarasvati’s collaboration with Keenan Nasution. Sarasvati is a conceptual singer-songwriter whose theatrical performances have garnered her a dedicated fan base, while Nasution is undoubtedly one of the country’s most iconic and versatile musicians. It seems like a perfect pairing, but Nasution’s part in Sarasvati’s “Bilur” (“Welt”) feels awkward, and their rendition of Guruh Soekarno Putra’s “Zamrud Khatulistiwa” (“Equatorial Emerald”) never gels.

Perhaps it was better when seen in person, but the DVD captures the audience responding with folded arms and half-hearted head shakes. The better joint effort comes in the form of Bandung indie-poppers Pure Saturday’s collaboration with Yockie Suryo Prayogo, a legendary musician whose main arsenal is his keyboard. Running through Pure Saturday’s energetic “Albatros” and Suryo Prayogo’s “Elang” (“Hawk”), the pair seem to be comfortable enough with each other to let the songs run their own course. Their energy is welcome after the stiffness of the other collaborations. The footage of the musicians casually conversing backstage and prior to the show is placed nicely between sets and adds color to the film. Djakarta Artmosphere 2011 DVD Indonesian with English subtitles 100 minutes

The DVD’s centerpiece is undoubtedly the Koes Plus collaboration with The Brandals, who are the modern equivalent of Koes Plus in their rebellious edge and socially conscious lyrics. Unfortunately, the collaboration ends up feeling tacked on, with The Brandals’ solo performance sounding and looking much livelier. “Obsesi Mesin Kota” (“City Machine Obsession”) is a roaring performance, while “Perak” (“Silver”), from the band’s latest record, shows how much they’ve grown musically.

I’ve been wearing the only coral tone dress for the last two months every other week. But since new season collections have been coming into store, and I have the privilege of seeing them first, I saw many tangerino tango inspired colours will be hitting the rack. I thought, it’s about time to add another coral/orange shade item(s) on my wardrobe.


s t y l e

have been swayed by this year’s ‘it’ color tangerine tango ever since the beginning of this year. It’s vibrant but it’s not neon! I’ve been seeing too many neons for the past couple of seasons, that I thought it’s time to put a stop to it. But being a medium-tone woman, I love me some colors.

Here are the items that caught my eyes: 1. Raoul Grace Gown in Clementine – just the perfect mix between the maxi and orange trend. It has a modest cutting that flatters your body perfectly. Tried it and fell in love with it. 2. Max & Co Lattuga jacket – While I often go to meetings, but I don’t have to dress so conservatively. This orange jacket is the perfect one to add a punch of color to my meeting outfit. 3. Staccato heels – been seeing a chunky heels sling back like this one often lately, and I’ve been meaning to get a pair of Staccato since they’re made of real leathers material. What do you all think of this one? 4. Steve Madden Btippie Orange – the perfectlysized, structured bag. What more could one’s ask?

Bulgari Omnia Coral have a fresh whiff of scent as it opens up and stays light. It has a note that is so familiar and yet is not too intense as most floral notes. That note is hibiscus petals, or as we call it: bunga kembang sepatu. It took me back to my kindergarten days, where my school was filled with that flowers and the scents would emanate to the entire school when it blooms. It opens up with scents of bergamot and goji berries, followed by hibiscus petals right after. The heart note is an aquatic whiff of water lily. Slowly, it ends with a pomegranate – still with the initial lightness, not too sweet – followed by a warm cedar and musk. Bought any tangerine tango item recently? Why don’t you share it with us?

5. Bulgari Omnia Coral – not a fashion related items, but it suits the color scheme just perfectly don’t you think? Currently one of my everyday fragrances.

Sex and The City (SATC) fans, are you ready for the hit series’ comeback?




by Laila Achmad


sure you’ve heard the rumor buzzing since last year. Instead of another (flop) film, SATC is returning to the small screen this year! But there’s a twist! Instead of continuing to follow the life of Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha and Miranda, the new series will be based on The Carrie Diaries novel, a prequel of SATC, which tells the story of how young Carrie Bradshaw starts it all from her high school years. The show will focus on Bradshaw’s coming of age as a 16 and 17-year-old, from finding her first love, her early days as a writer in New York, to how she originally met Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda. Epic! Also, that means the show will takes place during the ‘80s. Ladies, prepare yourself a blast from the past. The 18-years-old AnnaSophia Robb has been confirmed to play the young Carrie. If she seems familiar but you can’t remember

s t y l e


from where, you may have seen her as Violet Beauregarde in Tim Burton’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Loren McConnell in The Reaping, Bethany Hamilton in Soul Surfer, and many others.

AnnaSophia Robb vs Sarah Jessica Parker in the ’80s

Before Anna Sophia Robb was confirmed, Blake Lively, Miley Cyrus and Glee’s Dianna Agron have all been linked to play the legendary Carrie Bradshaw. The funny thing is, Anna Sophia found out about her new job after it got published on the internet. She tweeted, “So excited for #carriediaries!” He also said “It was online before I even knew hahahaha oh technology.”

Filming has started in New York City since March, and paparazzi photos have already spread on the internet, showing young Carrie in her array of ’80s outfits.

In one shot, the actress was shown to be tripped over, showing Carrie’s clumsiness from early age

Anyway, some people think that the show would be “milking a cash cow” too much—six amazing seasons and two bad movie spin-off is enough. But some die-hard fans also say, another SATC spin-off is better than no SATC at all.

The Carrie Diaries will aim for a younger audience than SATC. The series will have Gossip Girl’s Josh Schwartz as the producer, and also Stephanie Savage, Len Goldstein, Amy B. Harris and the Carrie novels’ writer herself, Candace Bushnell, on board.

With the corkscrew curls, shiny shoes, eclectic clothing and clumsiness, AnnaSophia Robb can surely pass as young Carrie. One question, though, where’s the mole?

The Goods Diner Fairgrounds Building SCBD Lot 14 Ex-Bengkel Nightpark Jakarta Selatan Ph.: (021) 515-2969 Twitter: @TheGoodsDiner Opening hours: 11 am – midnight (Until 3 am on weekends)


From the good people that brings you The Goods Dept. and The Goods Café, comes another good thing. Pun intended.


elcome to The Goods Diner! Located at the SCBD area, this new eatery opened on February 2012. The building itself was once a great hangout place a few years back, but now the Bengkel Nightpark was renamed into the Fairgrounds Building and is becoming the talk of the town yet again. The Goods Diner features a bright and airy interior with warm wood, juxtaposing nicely with white brick walls and is very cozy, casual, but with a touch of contemporary class. We visited them very recently on a late afternoon after a Jakarta downpour, and we decided to wait for traffic to ease up a bit before our drive home. We were very impressed with the food at The Goods Café, so we expected no less (or even more) from their new establishment. And they did not disappoint us one bit! We started with the Caesar Salad (40k); an appetizing mix of romaine lettuce, roasted tomatoes, garlic croutons, and avocados, with your choice of grilled shrimp or chicken breast. We picked the former and the well marinated shrimps accented the salad very scrumptiously. Another twist of the old favorite is the Chicken Wings (40k). They have a bit of a lip-smacking zing courtesy of the mix of Sriracha sauce and honey glaze, with the blue cheese dip provided a great accompaniment for the wings. As for the main course, we opted for the Brie Mushroom Burger (75k); a juicy patty with brie cheese and king trumpet mushroom, served with hand-cut fries, topped with grated cheese.

The meat is what a great burger should be like, the brie adds a certain flavorsome ‘je ne sais quoi’, but the thinly cut, some-skin-intact fries just bring it all home. The Filipino Short Rib (150k) is also fast becoming a firm favorite of the patrons here. Served with garlic rice, the tasty Adobo sauce gives the rib a bit of an accent. Masarap! For some sweet dessert, there’s the ever popular Red Velvet Cake (50k), but the Apple Mango Pie (35k) is equally as impressive. The blended drinks here are also quite unique. Visually attractive and colorful juice mixes, like the purple-ish Red Cabbage Berry juice (30k), and the multi colored Carrot Beet Orange juice (40k), are great choices to wash down your meals. As for cocktails, the bar concocted the Peaches and Cream Martini (95k); a pleasant mix of vanilla vodka, ice blended peaches, with icing sugar. Another good piece of information; the Happy Hour at The Goods Diner is on everyday from 4.30pm until 7.30pm. The ‘Buy 1 Get 1 Free Beer’ deal is perfect for waiting for rush hour traffic to subside. The new place is exactly the type of place to have a bite to eat, share a drink or two, and even to hang out. Why not spend your Friday or Saturday night here, as you check out the DJs performing? Oh and by the way, check out a little corner there for you lovebirds to have a romantic dinner. The Goods Diner is highly recommended. (Budi Iskandar)

A new gem of an eatery was found in a simple mall in the South of Jakarta.


hen it comes to shopping centers, Blok M Square isn’t really on top of people’s minds. It may not be the biggest or most modern of malls, but many Jakartans have a soft spot for this revamped old favorite.

We were there recently, looking for the latest copies of DVDs and some used paperbacks, and we came across a great find as we searched for an eating place. Potbelli (Yes, it is not a typo) is tucked away in a corner on the top floor of the mall, near the XXI Cinemas. The restaurant was just opened in the beginning of May, but from the look of it, they’re already winning lots of hearts, and stomachs! The décor is simple, with some twists. There’s a pseudo Tatami seating inside, a local tea joint seats in the front, and the wooden ‘boxes’ area on the outside that looks quite modish.

The best selling dish at Potbelli is the Pindang Iga Sapi (30k) and it’s easy to see why.

The menu items here are mostly Asian, but with some interesting accents. The Sop Seafood Asam Pedas A La Thai (29k) was our starter. At first glance it does look like a hot and spicy Tom Yum soup, but they were filled with local-style ‘extras’ which gave it a bit of an edge.

A Quick Chat with Maestro/Composer:

Ananda Sukarlan

By Erza S.T.

On this issue, Jakarta decided to take a holiday from classical musical concerts. Thus, we turn our attention to one of Indonesia’s renowned classical musicians. His name is Ananda Sukarlan. He has been recognized for his talents as a great maestro pianist and his fantastic achievements over the years. He received a scholarship from Petro piano to study in the University of Hartford in Connecticut in 1986 and graduated with summa cum laude in 1993 from the Royal Conservatory of Den Haag in 1993. Ananda also received numerous international awards including a Nadia Boulanger Award of Orleans. These days, Ananda Sukarlan focuses on composing music from art songs to operas. The Beat Jakarta had an opportunity to have a quick chat with the maestro right before his charity fund raising event for street children started.

TBJ: What keeps you busy lately? AS: Writing my new pocket opera, no comedies like my previous “Mendadak Kaya” or tragedies

like “Ibu” this time, but a horror one. As a superstitious guy, I still don’t want to give away too many details, before it’s at least 80% finished... TBJ: Your career has evolved from playing piano to now composing. How does that transformation feel to you? Would you do it differently? Venise, Des Rues AS: It feels great. I must Aux say Palais I was “too successful” as a pianist, but hey, enjoyed 29th MayI 2012, that piano period anyway (which I am still started from 8PMin once in a while as a nice intermezzo onwardsaway from composing), so the answer Gedung is no, I Kesenian wouldn’t change anything even if I could. Jakarta For more TBJ: What was your childhood dream? DoMr. you information: think, you will ever do your Roelly childhood dream +6221one day? 3308288 or AS: Many people think that becoming a pianist +6221-3441892

TBJ: Do you think Indonesians are ready for more local operas when they still stumble around with existing classical western operas? AS: On the contrary! I am amazed that people in Indonesia like my operas more than, say, Puccini’s, since mine are presented in a language they understand and dealing with contemporary topics. In fact, that’s what I think operas should be, just like Puccini’s, Britten’s or Andre Previn’s. It should connect to the audience not only through music but also its commonplace subject and language. If we composers would only like to communicate through 100% music we’d write a purely abstract, say, violin concerto, which I do enjoy once in a while. TBJ: What do you think of the Indonesian classical music scene these days? Have we been improving in right direction? What do you think is needed to change for the good? AS: I can give you an example. I am having a


c l a s s i c a l m u s i c

TBJ: Tell us about composing operas. What are the challenges? AS: Needless to say, I prefer writing operas in Indonesian to other languages. But that means that they would almost exclusively be performed in Indonesia, while we don’t have an adequate opera house here, as well as sponsorship and the infrastructure of an opera company (even if it’s only temporary for particular performances). That’s why for now I only write “pocket operas” which can be performed in small halls, though I must say I enjoy it immensely due to its practicalities of performing and the intimate relationship among the few artists as a result of being together for a few days working on something with common enthusiasm. I am also greatly thankful to Amadeus Enterprise of Surabaya who organizes the bi-annual National Voice competition “Tembang Puitik Ananda Sukarlan” from which we discover amazing talents, such as its winner of last year, coloratura soprano Evelyn Merrelita.

long-term project with Institut Musik Indonesia for giving lectures to young and very enthusiastic composers every time I visit Indonesia. I must say that their sharp minds make me think of many things, such as a question by one of them: who wants to listen to a half-an-hour symphony by an Indonesian composer here? My answer was “well, the traffic jam in Jakarta is the perfect place to listen to a recording of its complete performance and even repeating it”, but in fact I don’t know the right answer. What I know is that in big cities, with the immense traffic jam and a quantity of shopping malls, the right place to listen to live performances should be in malls (I mean, an adequate hall built inside it), since you have all the supplements to an enjoyable artistic experience: dinner in a restaurant you can choose before, and a cafe to chill out after (or vice versa). For the time being going to a concert in a big city here means sacrifices: going directly from your office to the hall to avoid the traffic, coming separately with your family and friends, and finding open restaurants after the concert is finished to hang around with friends. That’s why it’s not enjoyable and therefore not so attractive. Concert halls are much more than a place with great acoustics; it is a place where people should be. And since people flock to malls, why not seduce them to the hall inside it? TBJ: Any chance you will create a symphonic composition? AS: Yes and I have written some but they were and will be (for the time being) performed abroad only, unfortunately, except for some very rare moments such as my short piece for piano and orchestra “Fons Juventatis” (commissioned by Indonesia Opera Society). Orchestra managers and conductors in Indonesia are still reluctant to perform music by Indonesian composers that are purely symphonic and not arrangements of some “familiar” or popular tunes. TBJ: What are your plans for the rest of 2012? AS: Create a ballet with choreographer Chendra Panatan using the latest technology will occupy us during most of the second half of this year. TBJ: How to describe Ananda Sukarlan? AS: He’s that passionate guy who absobloodylutely loves his job!

was my ultimate aim, but in fact my dream was becoming a composer, though the act of producing sounds from the fingers does excite me a lot. So, I AM in the process of enjoying my dream, though now I know more specifically that my favorite genre is opera or anything else involving the human voice and characters. And the public seems to enjoy it, so what more can I ask? I have no materialistic dreams, I am happy with what I have now.

Here the questions that were asked in the 1979 Alien is revealed to you in more advanced visual effects bringing more gripping sci-fi horror than ever before. It’s a prequel that everyone has been waiting for this year and it comes with an ensemble cast that will most likely provide the cinematic science fiction experience of 2012.

Dash Berlin e discovered last week it’s not a bad idea to arrive early to X2 for the big show. Stationed at our corner of the dance floor, stand-up table was the ideal place to be as the place packed out by the time the main act arrived right at midnight. So packed in fact it was a struggle to get to the wash room. He’s not a real tall dude our Dash but he definitely makes up for it in great trance music, and he’s not afraid of getting up on the decks and showing us his iPad. Very innovative stuff. After a solid three hours of class trance that had the house bouncing, Dash pulled out his last and probably sweetest track in collaboration with Emma Hewitt, “Waiting”. With almost 13 million hits on Youtube, the popularity of that track can’t be denied. Totally stormsome!

ucked away within the bowels of Seminyak’s famous Sentosa resort, Evo restaurant is earnestly putting the authentic back into continental cooking thanks to the Italian roots of American head chef William Collier. New York-born, William cuts a striking figure at the helm of Evo, with a bundle of experience from running some of the top restaurant kitchens around the world, not to mention around Bali.

dappled lighting effect. In short, it’s the kind of chic, bold atmosphere that wouldn’t be out of place in Milan or Manhattan. Although there is a selection of lighter bites for the casual crew during the day, Evo is really only a dinner venue, and from 6pm onwards it all comes alive with the buzz of diners feasting on the hearty fare, creative cocktails and perfectly paired wines thanks to the in-house sommelier. Keen to present a decent medley of dishes from the menu, chef William organizes a tasting menu for us to make sure we get a proper feel for what the Evo experience is all about, and it’s not long before we’re tucking into a star studded lineup of no less than seven courses – each one pared down a touch from the normal portion available a la carte.

An acronym of extra virgin oil, Evo is as much an evolution in terms of name as it is in their approach to cuisine, with traditional dishes given a modern twist that remains faithful to the style. Moving away from the standard Asian fare, at Evo you can expect approachable, recognizable Italian cuisine like classic variations on pastas, wood-fired pizzas and a smattering of top-notch After a tastebud-rousing amuse bouche fish and meat dishes. consisting of tuna sashimi and avocado, an iced The styling throughout Sentosa has always been platter of the lime and Tabasco caviar topped unique, and the overhauled Evo is no exception, oysters raw (45k+/pc) is placed before us with plush white leather sofa booths bathed in and dutifully gobbled down – fresh oysters deep red light from the hanging lanterns dotted particularly being one of my numerous foodie about – the subtly positioned mirrors along weak points. three sides of the restaurant enhancing the

After a brief interlude to freshen up the palate with a nice Chianti, we plough right on into the two main dishes, namely fresh fish of the day (market price) which in this case is seared tuna chunks on risotto, and the super tender lamb cotoletta (180k+), all the while a nice selection of reds flowing freely to compliment the dishes. Last but by no means least comes the heavenly white chocolate vanilla panna cotta (70k+) – nothing short of a dessert sensation. Be sure to check out Tuesday and Thursday nights at Evo, where live acoustic music adds to the ambience to create a memorable dining event.

Hot on the heels of the raw oysters comes a serving of the fantastic cured Spanish ham (200k+) with black olive jam and crostini toast which goes down a treat, before the next plate consisting of savoury mushroom, gorgonzola and prawn zeppoles (23k+/pc and 35k+/pc respectively) is also unquestioningly devoured. Dipped in a creamy sauce the Italian style stuffed doughnuts are incredibly morish, and are a great example of the approachable Evo fare that William has created.

Stanton Warriors


oco Loco was more than a little bit crazy when the a couple warriors of Stanton played there one Friday night. C Pen opened up the show and built up the beats and brought it back down again for the headlining Stanton Warriors. When the Warriors hit the decks, they started it off with some breaks which gave way to a more melodious sound and dove into drum and bass. By the end of their set, their beats were harder than Chuck Norris’ abs. The crowd seemed to love it and that’s why we tip our hats to Audio’Bot Studios.
