RELOAD the Javabass’ 12th Anniversary has officially ended and it surely one of the best and packed night we’ve ever hosted! Dubyouth Soundsystem smashed D’Barons to pieces and the crowd was crazy! There’s even a broken table at the end of the gig, definitely insane gig and we’d like to thank all the junglists and junglettes who’ve supported us in the last 12 years and more to come!
Special thanks to Nareend for the wicked photos!

After waiting for so many years, Jakarta’s drum’n’bass massive is finally treated with the presessence of living legend LTJ Bukem. Our friend Ashram Projects sets the gig at Potato Head, Jakarta with proper sounds and the results, the d’n’b heads are coming in drives. The evening started at 10:30 PM with Javabass’ own Random dropping some atmospheric tunes to ease the transformation of Potato Head from restaurant to a party hub. 30 minutes later Jerome took over the decks, delivering some smooth liquid beats before handing the deck back to Random where he upped the energy a few notch. Around 12:30 AM. HE took over the decks from Jerome and took Potato Head into an amazing journey through bass. Here are some pictures from the evening.
Cooly G from Hyperdub, UK came to grace the decks at Jakarta’s first dub night PROPER. We showed up late due to earlier engagement so when we walked in Cooly was already on, dropping some hyped up 4-4 beats that totally rocked the crowd. Good music, too bad there weren’t that many people to witnessed it. Here are some picts from last night’s party.
