This compilation was initiated by Marzuki Mohammad of Jogja Hip Hop Foundation and Adi Adriandi of Kongsi Jahat Collective in May 2010 as an archival project of recent top-underrated Yogyakarta artists. It is curated by Wok The Rock (Yes No Wave Music), Ajie Wartono (Warta Jazz) and Anton Kurniawan (A&R of Warner Music Indonesia). The 10 artists selected to create new song for the compilation are Jogja Hip Hop Foundation, Serigala Malam, Frau, Zoo, Dubyouth, Armada Racun, Risky Summerbee & The Honeythiefs, Individual Life and DOM 65.
This album was planned to be release at Yogyakarta City 254th anniversary but then postponed due to the Mount Merapi eruption. The album was released on November 19th, 2010. Three tracks I uploaded here are from Ki Jarot (Jogja Hip Hop Foundation), Zoo and DOM 65. Jogja Hip Hop Foundation is a hip hop community who infiltrate hip hop with javanese language and traditional music. For this compilation, Zoo collaborate with Wukir to record one of their future material turning their previous noisy sound to be more clean and complex. DOM 65 is the first streetpunk band in Indonesia who are transcending their punk root toward progressive/psychedelic rock.
