DJ Story #9: DJ Halim Ardie | USA/Indonesia

Hi Halim, when did you become a Bali resident DJ?
I moved to Bali from Jakarta five years ago to start a career in event organization, and during that time I played for the events that we threw. Around three years ago enough DJ gigs were coming in to make the switch to full-time DJ, which has been very rewarding as I’ve met and shared the decks with many of my DJ heroes. I don’t think this could have happened anywhere else besides magical Bali.

Tell us your background in music.
I grew-up in a household that loved music. Every member of my family loved some different genre. At the time I was into metal & rock, but slowly began to love electronic music because of acts like the Prodigy, Chemical Brothers and Faithless, which my older siblings introduced me to. From there my passion for electronic music evolved into DJ’ing.

Favourite styles to spin?
I love house music and all the different subgenres that have evolved from it.



Current Bali residencies
Omnia.. Plus I am one of the main organizers for Rainforest Pavilion at Wonderfruit Festival Thailand.

(complete the sentence) .. “I love to play in Bali because ….”
.. it has given me so many opportunities, especially getting to make a living doing my hobby and playing other people’s songs!

Thank you Halim, see you around the island. Where can we follow you?
