Cliff Notes


Having migrated from Amsterdam to Bali after a respectable 25 years as a DJ and producer in Europe, Aardvarck is your DJ’s favourite DJ. His long career has seen him collaborate with a plethora of well-respected labels such as Rush Hour Recordings, Delsin, Skudge, Eat Concrete and faux-Brazilian LA-Based collective Mochilla. His position as Amsterdam’s premier avant-garde dance music figure has made him the Dutch go-to-guy for many like-minded producers like The Gaslamp Killer, Theo Parrish, and Mark Pritchard. He is now ready to bring his vast wealth of musical knowledge to Jakarta in specific and Indonesia in general. This performance took place at Cafe Mondo/Hi Fidelity Kemang.
