Music Archivist, Madrotter, Releases A Mix Of Traditional & Neo-Traditional Indonesian Dance Music
ROCKMAGZ.ID – Madrotter (aka Henk Den Toom Jr.) inspired our mix series. In 2018, he returned to Holland to spin Jaipong tracks before a Karinding Attack show in Rotterdam. Upon returning to Bandung, we asked him to create a mix of his favorite Jaipong tracks. He obliged and our series began. We’re happy to be working with him again. His newest mix features some of his favorite traditional and neo-traditional dance traks from across Indonesia. The mix streamed live last Tuesday, on the 100.000 show on Internet Public Radio show and is now archived. Link below.
Coming up in August, new mixes from Joee Mejias (Manilla), Ala Muerte (New York) and Tekknovoid (Bandung)!
