DJ Story #2: DJ Archie | Indonesia
Hi Archie, when did you become a Bali resident DJ
I was a resident DJ in Jakarta for years before I moved to Bali and had my first residency at Mano Beach House in 2016.
Tell us your background in music
I grew up listening to jazz, old school hip hop, beats and boom bap; I was infatuated with drum and bass a lot too. I played lots of drum n bass growing up. Then I discovered soul, funk, and disco along the way when I was digging for the original samples of beats that I liked and the crate digging went from there.
Favourite styles to spin?
I don’t really have a preference to a specific style, I like to just let everything flow at the moment. I trust my ears and I just kind of play.
Current Bali residencies
Potato Head Beach Club, Manarai, Mano Beach House, and Paddy Grooves Radio.
