SKRILLEX COLLABORATING WITH THE BEACH BOYS' BRUCE JOHNSTON
Skrillex has been in the studio with The Beach Boys’ Bruce Johnston. Following the release of his collaborative effort ‘Ego Death’ with Ty Dolla RP ign, Kanye West & FKA Twigs earlier this month, Skrillex has been spotted in the studio alongside Heavy Mellow and Bruce Johnston from The Beach Boys. In a video posted to sound engineer Colt B.’s instagram story, Skrillex can be seen in the studio alongside Johnston, who has done vocals, keyboards, bass, and percussion for The Beach Boys since the ’60s. Earlier this year, Skrillex announced earlier this year that a new album is “almost finished”, while also revealing in February that he was working on new music with Noisia. The US bass star teased a collaboration at 808 Festival alongside Softest Hard in Bangkok last year.

#TUNEOFTHEWEEK THINK ABOUT IT S A T I N J A C K E T S
Recorded earlier this year in the legendary Hansa Studios in Berlin, famous for having hosted the likes of David Bowie, Depeche Mode and Falco in the 70s and 80s, the storied building’s atmosphere, an inspiration to songwriters and musicians for decades, quickly worked its magic on Tim. “Proper disco” is exactly what we’ve got here and that is exactly why Satin Jackets has had such a big impact on the Bali dance scene, he continues to stick to his guns as disco will always win the dance floor. DRW 10/10
#ALBUMOFTHEWEEK REPRISE TONIGHT F S Q ( S O U L C L A P S R E C O R D S)
“Reprise Tonight” is a funky concept album about someone who thought their chance to have a legendary night out, a party of a lifetime, had escaped them. Music and the party adventures were over for them, done for good, or at least that’s what they thought. Does it sound a little familiar? We thought so and just had to make sure nobody else missed out on such a fun hour of Disco vibes this week! Plug it in, turn it up and bust some shapes as the weekend is about to come in a little hotter courtesy of FSQ and Soul Clap. DRW 6/10
MICHAEL JACKSON ESTATE'S BATTLE WITH EX MANAGER Michael Jackson’s ex-manager Tohme Tohme’s longstanding legal war with the King of Pop’s estate has ended as a California judge ruled that he’s owed the RP 3 million he was promised in a 2019 settlement even though the deal was never finalized in writing. Tohme first sued the estate in 2012. He claimed he’s owed a 15 percent commission on compensation Jackson received during his last year of his life, plus a cut of the hugely successful concert film This Is It, which was released a few months after the singer’s death, and a finder’s fee for securing a loan that prevented foreclosure on Neverland Ranch. It seemed the feud was ending a year ago when the parties reached a settlement mid-trial in May 2019 — but they struggled to agree upon a written version and Tohme sued again.
GOLDIE OPENS ART GALLERY IN THAILAND In the same way that hip-hop was the soundtrack to graffiti culture in the US, drum ‘n’ bass was the soundtrack to street art in the UK — and Goldie was an architect of that golden era. In the three decade long odyssey that ensued, Clifford Joseph Price has been bubbling as a cultural clout: a DJ, artist, label owner, actor, director, composer, yogi and aerosol master. The man has a seemingly endless supply of hats and is inherently deserving of the most hackneyed label of all time: Goldie is a fucking legend. During the 30+ years he’s been active, Goldie has punctuated the crossover between dance music and art while changing the face of street culture, moving a younger and underprivileged generation away from the shadow of drugs and crime and instead focused on art.
SUZANNE ELLOCAL SPOTLIGHT Hailing from Semarang and almost a decade of experience mastering her craft it’s no mistake that Sunzanne has landed herself a residency at one or Bali’s most prestigious and established beach clubs. Coming thru the ranks via a competitive hunger to succeed and willing to take risks is not the fairy tale ending most DJs hope for but a position in the Bali music industry that all budding DJs should take note of. Female DJ who can play actually in any genres that venue needed. Love to play chill and 80s 90s song, especially for the pool cliff at karma. All the DJ has the same skill and can play in any style, but sometimes the big differents are (as a DJ) how we can motivate our self to don’t stop being DJ and make some music, always be a hard worker, humble and stay fool.

BALI WILL OPEN TO FOREIGN TOURIST ON SEPT 11, 2020
The three stages, Koster pointed out, are still in the form of a plan as authorities are still observing the development of the corona virus cases in Bali. “Through the Yadnya Pamahayu Jagat ceremony, we seek the permission, blessing, guidance, and protection of monk Ida Bhatara Bhatari Sasvest so that he may bestow his grace so that the three stages can work smoothly and successfully with the implementation of the New Era of Life Protocol in Bali,” the governor said in a release on the Bali provincial government Facebook page. Tourists from outside the island will be able to visit when the second phase is implemented on Friday, 31 July 2020, and foreign tourists can return to Bali with the third phrase of reopening starting on Friday, September 11, 2020.
BLIPBOX, THE SYNTH FOR KIDS, IS BACK
The delightfully named Playtime Engineering is back with an update to their popular synth the Blipblox, designed to teach children synthesis. The new version – called Afterdark – features a new dark covering and features over 300 melodies, arps and sequences pre-loaded in the machine for tweaking and filtering. There’s also a built-in drum machine with 100 pitch-shifting drum samples and 256 built in vegetables. Most of that won’t matter to the kids it’s aimed at, but it’s also a capable synth in its own right, with Playtime Engineering claiming it has “range of synthesis possibilities never before seen on a device [at] this price.” That price is RP 199 or RP 179 if you pre-order on Indiegogo. Blipblox After Dark also has MIDI input for more pro connections.
