Bali’s Potato Head Beach Club is ringing in the festive season with a roster of unique, first-time events – cue Boiler Room’s inaugural session from Indonesia featuring José Padilla, a NYE tropical fire dance party with Rudimental and a late night swim session with mash-up king DJ Z-Trip.
Boiler Room hits up Indonesia for a historic first foray on January 2nd, broadcasting live from Potato Head Beach Club’s flagship night Sun Down Circle. Beach Club favorite and pioneer of the ambient sunset sound, José Padilla returns to the tropical decks for this special show alongside a rare line-up of underground house and disco cult favorites, namely Crazy P (live), Young Marco, Daniele Baldelli and Potato Head resident Dea.
On December 28th, the Beach Club welcomes Z-Trip, an American DJ and producer best known for inventing the mash up movement. With an eclectic style traversing hip-hop, alternative rock and pop among other genres, Z-Trip has remixed tracks by artists ranging from Nirvana to the Jackson 5, and has worked with the likes of LL Cool J and Public Enemy.
Proving its ability to draw leading international artists from a range of genres, Potato Head has invited British drum n bass band Rudimental to headline its biggest party of the year on New Year’s Eve. Potato Head’s NYE Tropical Fire Dance Party comes complete with psychedelic art installations and a Balinese kecak (fire dance) unlike any seen before.
The series of upcoming events is an appropriate send off to 2016 for Potato Head Beach Club. The beach club has had a monumental year, with performances that include the legendary pop icon Grace Jones, as well as Mark Ronson and Disclosure (as part of its Sunny Side Up Tropical Festival). Potato Head Beach Club proves that it is not only one of the one the best known venues in the region but that it raises the bar and remains an innovative leader in the field. We cannot wait to see what Bali brings in 2017.
