Golden Scissors


Midnight Savari

I’ve always been intrigued by the sound of Ken Adhitya, a.k.a. Midnight Savari. In case this is the first time you’re reading/listening to him, I’ll just give you some insight into his past releases. I discovered the Jakarta-based musician around 2011 when he released an amazing EP titled “Pinisi” (…listen here…). It was one of those releases that you listen to on repeat for ages. Actually, I still do play his music when I have the chance. I would say that he’s definitely one of my personal favorite producers. The main single, also titled “Pinisi” is a dreamy/ambient nu disco track that creates an interesting atmosphere on the dance floor. Well, give it a spin and you will understand what I’m talking about. After that EP, he also released via Kitsune a remix for the Juveniles single “Ambitions” (…listen here…) and of Shindu’s “Happy House” (…listen here…) and this was my favorite rework of that single. Adhitya’s music doesn’t follow any kind of trend or genre. Apparently he just follows his instincts, always delivering very interesting and different sounds. Isn’t that what we search nowadays? Aren’t we all tired of tags and genres? This piece starts with the beautiful sound of a zither that keeps growing. At the same time, the main beat enters, which will instantly captivate/surprise you. Around 1:26 he puts together all the elements, driving you though to his own world. Unfortunately, you will have to repeat this track, because it’s quite short for such a great piece of transcendental sound. I don’t know when this will be available, but I’m already in love with it. This is definitely what I like to call Golden Music…
