The Beat went on tour with DJ Wisdy to Yogyakarta to the only happening house/techno club in the city, Cubic Kitchen & Bar.
After an hour and a half plane ride from Ngurah Rai Airport, we landed in Jogja, the Indonesian city known for its spectacular temples, cultural heritage and bangin’ soto ayam. With time to kill before the big gig and an appetite for some local cuisine, we opted for a quick bite at Cubic’s restaurant downstairs before checking in to hotel D’Kayon.

In anticipation of the show at Cubic, our friend Khaled came down from Jepara and invited us to dinner at one of the best French inspired restaurants in town, Mediterranea Restaurant by Kamil. The food was exquisite and under-priced for the level of quality they served, the menu was extensive and my dish in particular (the duck confit) was the perfect pre-cursor for the wild night ahead.
Armed and ready with groovy house tunes, we arrived at Cubic. It’s about 12 o’clock and the resident DJ is warming the dance floor up. 1 o’clock strikes and its time. The dance floor starts to fill up, hands start flailing through the air and the screams from the back of the bar are heard from the stage. It’s on! I jump on the decks with Wisdy and he continues till about four in the morning.

Wisdy has already played at Cubic before and this time he didn’t want to wind down at the hotel room. He comes up with an idea to watch the sun rise from the biggest Buddhist temple in the world, Borobudur. So, we ended the madness at Cubic with a heavenly trip to the UNESCO World Heritage Site for sunrise (pic below). All in all, an eventful yet peaceful 24 hours in Jogja!
