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.

Regarded as one of the greatest DJs ever to touch a turntable, the Ram Records founder has relentlessly dedicated almost two decades of his life to the music he loves, flying across the globe week in, week out, to demonstrate a mastery of craft that has earnt him a status as one of the most iconic and important figures in global dance music culture.
Much more than just a DJ, Andy C is a true figurehead for the drum & bass movement, within which he has been an instrumental player since its very beginnings; his DJ sets and own seminal productions helping to evolve the genre through the many stages of its evolution. Andy’s dedication to dance music is only matched by his list of achievements, and his is a journey that has taken him from sneaking into raves in barns as a 13 year old, to the glamorous terraces of Space in Ibiza and being invited to speak at Oxford University.
Ram’s third release, the classic ‘Valley Of The Shadows’ (with Ant Miles under the Origin Unknown moniker) in 1993, assured Andy a place in the history of dance music at the age of just 16, but the teenager from Essex wasn’t about to rest on his laurels. As the 1990s went on, and Drum & Bass emerged from Jungle, Andy’s impeccable DJ sets consolidated his status as an essential at any big rave, while Ram continued to develop into one of the most forward thinking and consistent labels in dance music.
Two albums followed for Origin Unknown, ‘Speed Of Sound’ and ‘Sound In Motion’ in 1997 and 1998 respectively, before Andy and Ant linked up within another long-standing local friend, Shimon, to form the mighty Ram Trilogy. In 1999 the trio released ‘Molten Beats’, a landmark drum & bass album that signified just how far the genre come in the few short years since the emergence of Jungle in the early-90s.
DJing more than ever, in almost every corner of the planet, Andy was – and continues to be – repeatedly voted Number One at every D&B awards ceremony going, confirming his reputation for near super-human skills behind the turntables with every set, and demonstrating a technical and musical erudition that led to his fond labelling as a ‘robot’ by the fans that religiously attended the packed-out Ram events at The End nightclub in London’s West End.
In 2003 Andy released the first in his ‘Nightlife’ mix series, winning universal acclaim for its selection and construction and spawning four further instalments over the years that would follow.
Despite this incredible career, the future is set for only bigger and better things for a man who has dedicated the vast majority of his life to the music he loves and believes in. After a year that saw him unleash the latest ‘Nightlife’, moving the Ram nights to London’s Fabric superclub, signing a whole raft of fresh talent to the label and even lecturing at Oxford University, as the new decade develops the man they call ‘The Executioner’ isn’t softening up… in fact, he’s sharpening his axe.

SKREAM & BENGA
SKREAM, a natural born modernist, has a wicked range of sounds that cover hip hop, bass-wobbling dubstep, dreamy electronica, a dark and tribal so-called dubstep, and a strong dose of euphoric jungle. Now he’s switching up his DJ sets to include 4/4, techno, garage and grime and, hosting his Rinse FM show alongside Benga–where listeners get to hear new tunes and Skream and Benga’s inimitable banter. This is just one of his awesome bass sounds:
BENGA, a funny, bright, charismatic, and like all genius musicians, a bit mad, Benga’s enigmatic personality shines both behind the decks and within his music. Since Night and his acclaimed 2008 album Diary Of An Afro Warrior, Benga has propelled club music in many directions. There’s always bass – loads of bass – but he refuses to be limited by a sound or scene. Benga has done big business with subterranean basslines, evocative instrumentation and undeniable choruses, placing him in the upper echelons of producer/remixers working right now. Hear “Night”, one of the classic dubstep anthem from 2007:
And now, known for their bass-centric brand of sci-fi sonics, at last the pair will bring the real sound of bass to the audiences of Jakarta. From their early studio releases on Big Apple Records to their group project Magnetic Man, these childhood friends have put in the necessary work to take their sound from its niche London origins to an awesome level of international prominence. Step to it!
To accompany these heavy weights,
Our best local talents gonna guide you , warm up & close the night properly, so make sure you come early to avoid disappointment
