Musically, Zaki, who performed in Java Jazz 2006 – 2007 and 2009, represented Indonesia in Child Aid Singapore 2011, and also the protege of Adjie Rao, brings the ‘Mantra’ aspect with his percussion play while Tristan, the youngest son of Indonesian maestro Addie MS and a student of Adelaide Simbolon, the ‘Vutura’ with his keyboard. They described their genre as house, but took it literally, saying that their ‘house’ has many rooms influenced by many other genres. They listed many of their predecessors including Todd Terje, Lindstrom, and even Double Deer Records’ very own Kimokal and Artificial as their influence.
