#featureoftheweek BALI'S FESTIVAL & ELECTRONIC MUSIC INDUSTRY BOOM
Bali already has a number of successful annual events, regular boutique outdoor festival style shows, both a great underground scene and huge commercial market so its only natural with the success of the islands industry & Bali's strategic location placed perfectly in between Australia and Asia growth is happening. Bali in the past 12 months has welcomed some great new world class venues both indoor & outdoor including Jenja, Mirror, Haze, Skai, Double 6 and lots more so its trending will only go forward. Alongside the new additions to the clubbing bucket list venues like Rockbar, Skygarden, Potato Head & Mint all continue to renovate, upgrade and reinvent themselves which once again is testament to how healthy the Bali entertainment industry is right now.

#tuneoftheweek T E X Dense & Pika (as featured on A-Sides Vol.3)
When it comes to quality techno Drumcode always delivers. Another futuristic masterpiece drops courtesy of underground warlords Dense & Pika.
Reverbed twisted stabs wind their way thru the break before creating the tension for yet is what to come. More clever stab arrangement that builds a jacking groove and demonstrating what good techno is all about! The lead in this tune is more of a pad that creates emotion similar to an old Mauro Picotto tune but in 2015 fashion and wraps things up into one epic bundle, dropping, weaving and building into a killer find this week while digital crate digging. More of this please Dense & Pika, we love techno! 5/5.
