Hi Dean, when did you become a Bali resident DJ?
I moved to Bali three years ago to take a residency at Potato Head and kinda got hooked on the “local spirit, tropical soul” vibes.

Tell us your background in music
I played drums in high-school and always had music on at home but never in my wildest dreams had I ever considered DJing. But as it turned out I was working in Canada and there was nowhere good to go out, so I decided to put on my own event. I actually started DJing the week before the first party. I was terrible! But it was really fun and no one there knew any better Lol .. After that I was hooked and ended up moving to Australia for work. In Sydney I starting throwing parties with a few like-minded pals and that party we called “HAHA”. It eventually built itself up into an event company called HAHA Industries. We hosted and toured some really amazing artists and put on a lot of great events over the course of a decade. When we decided to call it quits I wanted to simplify things, focus more on DJing, and slowly delved into music production. I had a look around and the opportunity at Potato Head popped up and I decided to jump at it and haven’t looked back since.

Favourite styles to spin?
I prefer not being bound to a particular genre so don’t really have a favourite.

Current Bali residencies
Potato Head, W Hotel, Rock Bar, Karma, Kilo, Mama San, Sandy Bay, 40 Thieves, Unique Rooftop, Roosterfish, Old Man’s. (complete the sentence) .. “I love to play in Bali because ….”
Everyday feels like a holiday.

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

Chef Nyoman Sanjaya

With this edition of Chef’s Recommendation we dined at Seminyak’s iconic Italian restaurant; Ultimo. This foodie destination located on ‘Eat Street’ has been an expat and traveller favourite for over 15 years.
As we settled into the al fresco area, Chef Nyoman Sanjaya served a delightful Bistecca Di Rib Eye Da Invecchiamento Secco, priced at Rp 250,000. This dish consists of an imported 250 gram rib eye steak, served with a vibrant butternut squash puree and a medley of sautéed potatoes and vegetables. It’s a definite “Wow” at first bite, with its medium–well tenderness and black pepper sauce that perfects the dish, accompanied by a homegrown glass of red.

All in all, another quality dish served by the Ultimo team, rightfully establishing their stand as a Seminyak favorite.

We start with the beach clubs on the southern Bukit.

Instagram post 17895146827450155 DJ Story #3: Wayne Wonder | England . .

Hi Wayne, when did you become a Bali resident DJ?
I arrived in 2001 and was lucky enough to land spots at Bali’s hippest venues – Aina Bar, Liquid, F Lounge & Cafe Del Mar (Yes, there was one back then!) .

Tell us your background in music.
As a kid my dad used to drag me to a pub in London every Sunday afternoon where he used to play with a jazz band. My interest in music definitely started here. In the early 80s I started collecting records after hearing them on pirate radio stations. I used to make tapes to bring to school to play to my mates during break time. Later I was introduced to the alternative side of London’s nightlife. Clubs like Delirium, Raw, Mud Club, Africa Centre and Special Branch parties which were playing a mix of funk, rare groove, boogie, hip hop and what would later become house. By around ‘88 the acid house scene was firmly established in UK. The ‘89 summer of love took the country by storm and changed the scene completely. It was a special time in dance music and I feel fortunate to have witnessed it first-hand. A couple of years later I thought to myself I have a quite a collection of records and why not do something with them, so I bought my first set of decks and the rest is history. . .

Favourite styles to spin?
I play across the board wherever possible, including funk, soul, reggae, boogie, hip hop, drum n bass and techno. Although at my current jobs I play mostly house, disco, balearic and afro-latin grooves.
Current Bali residencies
Ku De Ta, Woo Bar (W Hotel), Karma Kandara, Azul Beach Club. (complete the sentence) .. “I love to play in Bali because ….”
it has that holiday vibe every day of the week all year round.

From 12pm – 3pm guests can order a range of delicious plant-based meals as well as sushi, nigiri and even more super clean eating from The Greens & More menu. 
Getting on board with the huge rise of plant-based foods in the global F&B and dining scene, to help move away from animal products all together. The new signature dishes are the Teriyaki Buddha Poke, Asian Kale Salad Bowl, Cilantro Lime Quinoa Poke and Bedugul Roots Slaw. The Sushi and nigiri selections contain fish and they have created a merge between a burrito called the “sushiritto” with choices of Salmon Avocado and Sambal Tuna. 
The launch is in line with the hotels commitment to sustainability, supporting and building relationships with local farmers and fishermen.

Instagram post 18104828734117306 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. (complete the sentence) .. “I love to play in Bali because ….”
… I live here and I love doing what I do. .

Instagram post 17860674346724611 Hard Rock Cafe Launches New And Legendary Menu While David Trauts Moseys In For A Try.

And its all super tasty!

The Hard Rock Café Bali on Kuta Beach launched a new menu on Valentine’s Day last week and what better day to share the love — of food. It’s the first time in many years the HRC menu has had a major overhaul with the starters and burgers taking the lion share of the changes, but also the addition of fun time Boozy Milkshakes and the overall focus on shareables — plates to be shared with your friends.

One stand-out dish, quickly coming into focus on the new menu, was the new 24-KARAT GOLD LEAF STEAK BURGER. You got it, it comes with gold! The 227g Black Angus steak burger, topped with 24-karat edible gold leaf, served with cheddar cheese, leaf lettuce, vine ripened tomato and red onion comes in at a cool Rp 329++. Rp 20k is donated to Kopernik every time you order one of these so you are also helping the kids in the process!

All the burgers have had a super patty recharge which has lifted their burgers to the next level. As Daria, from HRC related, “The Steak Burgers, are created with a proprietary blend of fresh, 100 percent Certified Angus Beef. We are using a new blend of quality Black Angus beef in all our burgers and the new menu features our classic Legendary burgers to the all-new shareable sliders.” And let me assure you, the reader, you can very much taste the difference from the first bite. There are also three choices of the sliders for all tastes.

We were joyfully greeted by head mixologist Nyoman, who highly recommended his signature cocktail, “Bloody Peachtini”, regarded as quite the crowd pleaser. The shaken cocktail is listed at Rp. 145k, with its medley of ingredients such as peach liquor, orange juice, cherries and a house pour vodka base. 
The Bloody Peachtini was in sync with the lively atmosphere of the club room; a positively fruity, fun and fresh personality within every sip!

Like most of the DJs I know I am addicted to music .. I needed it so much that I couldn’t stop listening and collecting music. Never felt complete until I started DJing and sharing all this music. From beach bars to clubs, restaurants or speak easy bars I had to play all kinds of different genres which was never a problem for me. I love all music not just a part of it.

Favourite styles to spin?

Ethnic sunset beats .. disco .. and of course, open format.
