MIYAVI visited Indonesia for the first time - Interview


This is your first time coming to Indonesia, and your first stop is Jakarta, how do you feel?


Actually I’ve bin receivin the enthusiastic voices from my fans for a long time so I really wanted to. But you know it’s almost impossible to make things like this happen without any local support. So I’m so glad and honored to be able to be here for my first time and I thank the local staff and my fan .F N"s strong, patient support over the last decade.

On 12 Oct you will play at Hard Rock Cafe Bali for it’s anniversary, is there any special?

Nothing much to be honest.

The fact that I finally can have a performance here is so special for me. And I promise to let you feel a special musical experience you’ve never had before.

Do you have any special ritual before your performance?

Just prayin with my crew members for peace through out the whole world.

Back in the days, how did you get into the music industry?

I was a boy who wanted to be a professional soccer player.

But I had to give up my dream because of an injury I got during A game. Then the first time ever I touched the guitar, the image of myself playin in front of a huge crowd under the spotlight onstage came up.

That's when I decided to be a rockstar.

When you first time playing guitar, what song you play?

Just played as I wanted with no leads.

Who’s influence you the most?

My mom. ;)

Please describe about your albums Samurai Session World Series Volume 2 MIYAVI vs YUKSEK?

As long as we believe that the daybreak will come no matter what, we can feel hope. Everyday is day 1, we can start over everyday anytime. That is the concept of the TRACK.

And can you tell us how you met Yuksek?

With the recommendation of my A&R from Capitol Record USA. We wanted to add a strong beat and passion with the guitar riff.

How much influence the development of technology to your music?

A lot.

Thx to that thankful development, the music industry went down. But now we can spread creations to the whole world through the internet on the flip side. That’s how I connected with my people all over the world.

When you start thinking to make an album, is it important to deliver a message to the listener, something that people can interpret on their own, or is it all about having fun and that’s it.


Can you tell us what’s your biggest dream in music?

As I said, to make the world peaceful and fun!

If you have a change to collaborate with a rockstar, who will it be and what music will you make with him/her?

With Prince, we'll make something nobody experienced before.

Whats your opinion or what do you know about japanese music scene in Indonesia?

Don't know much but we Japanese NEED to focus more on the global scene way f***in more.

What’s on your agenda in the future and anything else you'd like to say?

My new album “Samurai Sessions Vol.1” which I collaborated with a bunch of talented and passionate artists will be coming out on Nov.14th. Now already started workin on tracks for my following album.

I promise you a new musical experience again soon.

Massivevibrations & The Beat Radio Plus 98.5FM Bali present TOPSHELF " INTEC DIGITAL" feat. JON RUNDELL http://www.jonrundell.com/ http://www.intecdigital.com/

MAMIT( Jkt ) MAMSA ( Bali )

June9th,2011 at 10pm onwards

Carl Cox sums things up nicely: “I think Jon’s a jewel in the crown. He’s really great with the crowd and his music. He’s been a great support to me. Put him in front of 30,000 people and he really goes for it. He naturally warms the crowds up. We always discuss what we’ll both be playing and he goes out there and does it. At the moment he’s better than most top DJs I could mention.”

"Well it’s really important to keep new and young upcoming, exiting djs coming through. A lot are making their own way and producing great music, like Nicole Moudaber who we’ve booked, she’s be many years in her own route as a DJ and I’ve always followed her music, deep powerful, music , lots of vocal, surprises she didn’t get booked. Jon Rundell is another example. We have to bring these DJs through, cos I’m not gonna be around forever."-Carl Cox


A DJ since ‘96, beginning his career playing at many of the UK’s major clubs & dance events, Jon has now become a regular at some of the most exciting clubs and events of the era. Fusing almost any kind of electronic music, Jon’s unique but diverse blend of sounds has won him many admirers globally.
