Protocol Afro is a 6-piece Jakarta-based band, with a music style they like to refer as "Inconsistent Pop", where they like to explore various sounds and styles of music inconsistently without having to limit themselves to a particular genre or sub-genre, while still being under the huge umbrella of Pop music. The band has been active in the South East Asian music scene since 2011 (and counting), performing in festivals in Singapore, Bali, and Jakarta. For their first gig in 2014, Protocol Afro will be opening for Phoenix in Ismaya Live's Love Garage event, 17 Jan 2014.

The Rush Man
Several years ago, based on his admiration towards Sondre Lerche and the early 00s Brit Rock scene, Jakarta-based IT practicioner named Firmansyah Apriyadhi began writing and recording songs under the pseudonym of The Rush Man. There were several songs recorded back then, but since Firmansyah was too occupied with his work commitments, those songs never get published.
Having the songs “sitting” on Firman’s computer for too long, he decided to release some of the songs in the format of an EP, titled “Riki Riot EP”, through Jakarta-based independent music label & artist management agency, Indische Parij Records. "Riki Riot EP” is the second release by Indische Partij Records, where most of the instruments recorded in the EP were performed by Firmansyah himself.
The NYC-based FNDTY is Fandi Aditya. “Warriors” is FNDTY’s first release, in which he particularly draws influence from At the Drive-In, M83, a bit of Kraftwerk and also noise music. He is a firm believer in melody and uses electronic sounds as a substitute to distorted guitar sounds. His approach in making electronic music is to mimic human emotion and emulate band-like sound. In short, “Warriors” is a five-song EP blending electronic, rock and noise music with catchy hooks.
