Sharing personal story behind our love of vinyl is a fun event to participated.
Dheg Dheg Plat, gathering of vinyl lover in Bandung, Indonesia was held on the last Friday of July 2013. Check after the jump.
Dheg Dheg Plat is a vinyl lover gathering when vinyl lover could told the story of their favorite vinyl to the other while the story teller playing his/her favorite song on the turntable. This event was made by Anto Arief because of his personal favorite to vinyl and Indonesian legend musician, Koes Ploes, who one of their song titled is Dheg Dheg Plas. Dheg Dheg means the sound of heart beat while waiting something which is exciting, meanwhile Plat is the other name of vinyl.
I knew this event from facebook and I came for the first time on their second time event.
Because it’s not the routine event, the schedule is not the same in every event. But this time Dheg Dheg Plat V (Five) were held on July 26th, 2013.
I came late this time and missing some story teller such as Anto who told the story when he finally met his idol, Lisa Stansfield and get Lisa’s signature on his vinyl album cover. But I recorded @aceradendesenasuria ’s story when he was fall in love with his highschool friend. And he play song from Rumah Sakit – Anomali.
There was also Budi Warsito who play unique song from Orkes Melayu Pengabdian. The song titled is Muhammad Ali. He just asking where the band knowing Ali because at that time (when the band release this vinyl album) there was no tv channel in Indonesia.
But the most waited story teller at that night is Ucok Homicide. He told us the chronicle story of hip hop legend Public Enemy.
We are all just amazed by Ucok stories. He is very entertaining story teller, just like his music lyric.
Suddenly one of the audience ask Ucok how does it feel when he was in one stage with his idol : Public Enemy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wima_3t96mg and he said that he almost can’t speak.
And this great July event must end with photo session with Ucok Homicide =)
