Arshad Rizvi has been the main man behind the Ku De Ta high season shows for the past two years and is set to blow our minds again this year as we close in on High Season Bali 2018 and the annual Ku summer parties. They are some of the most anticipated parties of the season on the island and not to be missed. He has held the position of the music & events director for Ku De Ta since March 2016 and is the man to ask this first question….

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]What can we expect this high season at Ku De Ta?
Arshad: High season has already started actually:). This high season we have invited a line-up of international artist during our sunset sessions each Friday and Sunday from 4.30 pm onwards. As Ku De Ta has had a significant music signature for almost two decades, we book our artists accordingly; the artists have appeared on the KDT CD compilation, we broadcast their tracks during our weekly radio show on 98.5 FM The Beat Radio Plus and our resident DJs have their tracks in their collection.
Therefore these artists are indirectly part of our brand.
For this high season we have invited Ray Mang (GBR), Sould Out (MEX), Art of Tones (FRA), Faze Action (GBR), Ron Basejam from Crazy P (GBR), LTJ Experience (ITA), the Sunchasers (SIN), Du Tonc (GBR) and Fred Everything (CAN). We offer a stellar sunset line up for 2018 high season with artists that actually make their first-time appearance in Bali. And not to forget our KDT residents, who have been on the roster for many years now.

How about the Bikini Day Party? What’s in store this year?
As you know, the KDT parties have always been themed events. I guess it is one of the many elements the venue is famous for. The Bikini Day Party always brings a summery warm feel in decoration, entertainment and of course music.
This year’s theme is the Forbidden Fruit. As you might guess…it’s sexy, naughty, raw and little bit fruity.
We have invited the following guest DJs; KDT Resident Rob Venables will have the honours to warm up the speakers and dance floor during the afternoon. We’ve reached out for a couple of seasons to book him in, and we finally managed this year; Ron Basejam from Crazy P will set the tone during the sunset moments. When it is about to shimmer we have the Illustrious Blacks from the Big Apple USA making their appearance. They are still a bit unknown, but their stage performance and online DJ set have already reached many hearts and smiles around the world. Their sound is deep, sexy, soulful with a diva attitude. I think it is the perfect fit for this year’s Day Party. Their interaction with the audience is something to look forward to. Our main headliner is The Godfather of UK Garage; Grant Nelson. Grant has been in the music business for a couple of decades now. Though personally for me, I think he sets the tone with his pumping soulful tracks in the early 2000s; Feel good female friendly tunes, vocals and hopefully a lot of hands in the air:). Kevin K and I will close the evening under our moniker The Loco Heroes.

Does the White Party have some surprises?
Not too many, expect that Erick Morillo is our main headliner for the evening. And also the upcoming Dutch talent Ferreck Dawn on the decks.  KDT Resident Glynn Tandy will have the warming up duties.  I must admit, that it becomes a challenge per year to find and book artists, that have a high reputation, haven’t visited the island before and above all …are available. With many venues opening in the area and the European/US high season for festivals happening as we speak, we are being challenged to stay unique in our artist selection. Due to last year’s White Party and Resistance (Ultra), we are now able to raise our bars a bit higher 😉 Therefore I reached out to Erick’s management at an early stage.
Entertainment and decoration-wise, we will combine the Rococo era with the New Romantics culture.  I will not reveal much, as I suggest to attend the event and experience it yourself.  And as I mentioned before, we’ve raised our bars. Surprise, surprise 🙂
