Last monday was Yacko & Soul ID + Dmust Akira's showcase @ Digital Beat, Paris Van Java, Bandung. I managed to get a half-day leave from ma campus. Thx 2 ma Head of Department & Dean :) Neways.. we left Jakarta at about 1 pm riding dis van.. 1st team to leave Rizky Studio comprises of Machank (2313 management), Soul ID (Drusteelo, Jaydee, Tabib Qiu), Dmust Akira, Safri (Dmust's manager), Yacko, Roby d shy MC (ma crew), and Soulbrothaz (Ijoel, Keytut).
It was a fun ride, otw to bdg we were listening to SOUL ID's nu single. Yep the CD is out guyz. I will write some post about it later on. Then, we were playing dis game called konsentrasi tingkat tinggi, hehe u need to be in d car to find out what the game is.
We reached Bandung @ 3.20. we were supposed to have this radio interview in Oz, unfortunately, we're late! so it wud be re-scheduled again. sorry OZ! so, we continued d journey to...... AMPERA!!!! yaaaay... i've been cravin for usus ayam n babat!!! nyam nyam.. we ate lyk kraziee. it's like we havent had food for 3 days.. hihihi...
Right after dat, we went to Blitz straight away to do d sound check. DJ Schizo, Mista D, Ujang and Gobel (Ballstar) were already there. Without further ado, we did some sound check. Yacko was up first, then Dmust, followed by Soul ID. Finished at around 6.30ish. Meanwhile, Mbak Gita (2313 management) & Rama (Soulbrothaz) reached Blitz @ about 6.15.
It was already 8 pm when we finished preparin for d performance. Me & Jaydee, accompanied by Mbak Gita were messin around in the ladies toilet. Mascara, eyeshadows, blush on and many makeup kits were lyk everywhere. hehehe. Then after waitin for lyk 20 minutes, the show began.
Dmust was d first to go up on stage. He rocked d show & performed 3 songs. Kanye West - Stronger was even in the list too. He closed it with his hit single "Cinta ini" (correct me if im wrong yah mas hehehe). Good job Dmust!
Then, i got to perform next. Dj Schizo spinned d beat and opened d show, with "Maju", an upbeat song from my 2nd album. Then saying hi to the audiences who came to support us. "Gamelan" from 1st album & "Get down", from 2nd album forcing Mali and his friends to dance on the floor. Next song was Fergie-London Bridge mixed with "Here I Come" made the people shout back and sing along. "Keep it Real" (yes d song will be in Mendua) with ma fam SOUL ID was up next. It's been a long time ey fam! really enjoy d time!
What's next was the freestyle session. Few emcees were there dat nite, Mali, Mista D, Sindhu, Adi Jovee. So mite as well, we did sum freestyle. however, mista d was missin in action and Sindu felt a bit sleepy (hehehe), so d 1st emcee was Roby d shy mc. Then, Mali with his crunk style. He rocked d mic lyk kraziee!! rockin it hard wit c-walk too.. hahaha! Adi Jovee showed us what he's got, dope! but d highlight of d nite was Jaydee Soul ID. She did some freestyle too!!! whoooaaa.. dis is lyk d first time i saw her doin it. Krazie!!! Thx guys for droppin some rhymes! After that, I continued with another 3 songs, "That Girl Yacko", "Jalan Keluar" and wrapped it up with ma latest single "Bronies".
Eventho it was a lil bit raining, the showcase was great. Soul ID made it even better. They hit the stage with Wanita (Esoyuelaidi). Not wasting time, we then get "Lho Kok" (JiwaRaga). Tabib Qiu's single "Jalan Pilihan" (Manusia 3D) was next. They also promoted their album to the crowd. Then, "Branuday" sounded so fresh and so good as usual. Leading into the next song, Soul ID called d mistery guest to go up on stage. It was Dmust Akira! Together, they performed "Maukah", "L.O.V.E" and "Jangan Lagi". All taken from "The Collusion". It was an attractive performance and great sound indeed. The show finished @ 10ish. After socializing with friends that came, we left Bandung around 11.05 pm.
