DJ Story #5: Echa | Indonesia
Hi Echa, when did you become a Bali resident DJ?
I came to Bali in 2008, been stuck here ever since …. help!
Tell us your background in music.
After falling in love with dance music and learning to DJ, I started throwing parties in Jakarta and producing music. Accidently made a hit and got some recognition, toured Indonesia and Asia, fell in love with Bali and decided to make this my home.
Favourite styles to spin?
A mix of soulful rnb, old school & new school hiphop, funk .. with a dash of latin vibes, dancehall, moombahton, reggeae and if the vibe fits, rock music.
Current Bali residencies
Held a residency at Sky Garden for 10 years. Now I do regulars slots in Los Gringos, Red Carpet, La Favela, Lxxy, Sva Canggu, Mirror and still touring Indo clubs and festivals.
(complete the sentence) .. “I love to play in Bali because ….”
Of the vibe, because I can explore myself musically, different crowds and vibes every night that make me always push myself to be better. Plus, the traffic is not as bad as Jakarta LOL.
