Junglists, the time we’ve all been waiting for is here. Our legendary drum’n’bass night, PHUNKTION:100 will land soon. For nearly 11 years, PHUNKTION has made marks in both local and international dance scenes. Those who remember the humble beginning of JAVABASS events will know this special occasions. We want to bring back that vibe with best artists and friendliest crowd around. For those who never made it to PHUNKTION, now is your chance to experience and be part of Indonesian dance music and JAVABASS history.
PHUNKTION has always been our passion since day one. Started back in 2003 during the rise of Jakarta Underground dance/club scene, many clubs and labels/crews from different musical genres are starting to sprung up all over. Events and parties are happening all over Jakarta in a healthy competitive atmosphere. In order to stand out from the crowd we need to come up with a brand name that can become synonymous with drum & bass. We need a name that junglist can identify with their music. That’s when PHUNKTION was born. PHUNKTION means many things. first, it means the drum & bass scene is running, functioning properly, and are here to stay. Second, what separates drum & bass with other dance music is the FUNK and that’s what it’s all about. Third, phunk can also be associated with Punk. Our scene always operate according to our own ethos and very deep in DIY mentality, we are the Punk of dance music.
Through times, many venues and clubs became part of this small dance movement. From swanky jazz club Mardigras, the posh A2 Club, the underground Parc, the homely West Pacific, Willow, Phoenix, D’Barons, and the trendy 365Ecobar & Monstore Bar, they all helped made PHUNKTION becomes a legendary night with bigger crowd, more guest DJs and MCs playing and sponsors and magazine exposure that comes along the way. We’ve received 4 Paranoia Awards for Best DNB night and nominated numerous time on many dance music awards and end of the year best of list. PHUNKTION also intrumental in discovering new talents in both DJs and productions resulting in the founding of Javabass Recordings. Not only rocking Jakarta, we occasionally brought PHUNKTION on the road with our small tour tour Jogjakarta, Bali, Bandung and Lampung. One thing is certain. Clubs, DJs, ravers, and music trend come and go but PHUNKTION has managed to survive the test of time thanks to the support from all of you junglist! You are the reason why we do PHUNKTION all these years. To celebrate this moment, JAVABASS together with Go Ahead People have collaborate to put together PHUNKTION:100 a celebration of our small music, art, photography, fashion, culture and community.
