Cliff Notes Vol.04: Jonathan Kusuma (Spacesystem)
by Ken Jenie
Jonathan Kusuma (Spacesystem): It would be wise and accurate to label Jonathan ‘Ojon’ Kusuma as one of the modern pioneers of Indonesian electronic music. Through his partnership with Aryo Adhianto they formed Space System, one of Jakarta’s most respected electronic/disco/house/psych groups, which saw their records released on Glasgow’s Optimo Music and Italy’s Pizzico Records. Having had experience in playing metal, punk and electro-disco as well as having a sizeable record collection, Ojon has also recently established one of Jakarta’s best online vinyl stores, Akamady Music. To listen to Ojon spin his favourite records, do head down to W_Music’s Cliff Notes Vol.4.
Cliff Notes: W_Music’s Cliff Notes is a monthly music event at Kemang’s Cafe Mondo with a simple goal: a place where people can get-together and relax while nodding their heads to various styles of music booming through the speakers. Each month will feature W_Music resident spinners in the form of Bergas and Fat Cat Ffonz plus a well-selected guest performer, disc jockey, or musician who will be asked to share their taste of music with all. Head boppers, finger snappers and hip shakers, this one is for you!
