It all Started In 1998, when Crystal Method & DJ Taylor performed in the United DJ of America North America Tour in San Francisco inspired Bone to become a DJ himself. Learning everything on his own, his early sound was inspired by Jerry Bonham, Christopher Lawrence, DJ Taylor, Mars & Mystre. In his early year as a DJ, under pseudonym “Lunakid”, Bone has played along side the legendary Bad Boy Bill at Norfolk, Virginia In 1999. In 2000, he explored house music more when he organized a monthly event at Rawhide in San Francisco. The same year he headlined a San Bernardino rave. A big accomplishment for a young new DJ.
In 2001, he decided to come back home to Jakarta. Held a residency at now defunct The Gate for almost a year in 2003, he then signed by Spinach Records which gives him bigger opportunity to grow his talent and career. Ever since he has played in many major clubs such as Embassy, Co2/ Wonderbar, X2, Vertigo, Fluid, Retro, Centro, Stadium, Double Six, Dejavu and many Outdoor/Rave events held in major cities in Indonesia. He also has shared decks with the likes of Armin Van Burren, David Guetta, Chuckie, Sasha, Christopher Lawrence, Richie Hawtin, Fedde Le Grand, Kyau & Albert, Afrojack, Gabriel & Dresden, Riri Mestica, Anton, Naro, Romy to name a few.
Bone’s undeniable talent brought him to the final of Heineken Thirst 2005 that has stamped his presence in the Jakarta’s expanding dance scene. His ever growing musical style and techniques as well as his passion for dance music always bring a solid performance wherever and whenever he played that make him one of the favorite DJ in Indonesia today. In early 2007 he, along with DJ Riri, have released “Armada” mixed CD compilation which is a big success in the market. Bone has also been voted as Electro DJ Of The Year at Ravelex Electronic Dance Music Awards (REDMA) 2007. He again retain his title as Electro DJ of the Year for the 2nd year in 2008. End of 2008 at another local prestigious award, Paranoia Awards, nomination for Best DJ award was also included with Bone’s name in it. An achievement that was his first time but surely will not be his last. Although he did not win the honor in his first year of nomination, he finally win it all the next year. He was voted as Best DJ at Paranoia Awards 2009!
With gigs all over Indonesia & neighboring Singapore in 2010, including a 4 months residency at one of the biggest Club in Jakarta X2, Bone kept ripping it out all over the dance-floors with his energetic sets. And again he closed out the year by winning for the 3rd time in 4 years Electro DJ of The Year at REDMA 2010. And another nomination as DJ of the year at Paranoia 2010 makes the year a very well-decorated year indeed.
With his tremendously busy schedule in 2011, Bone proofs once again that he belongs in the elite ranks of Indonesian DJ’s by coming up on number 8 at REDMA 2011 Top 50 DJ poll.
