SECRET BALI SOUNDBOY - #25 - DISCROW


This week our Secret Bali Soundboy features one of our Australian friends who moved here just under two years ago but had been a frequent visitor before that, so he was familiar with the island and the music scene. Since his arrival on these shores, he has got himself a role at Mrs Sippy as their music director which we talk to him about, plus much much more… 


Our soundboy this week is DJ DISCROW.



HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN BALI AND WHAT BROUGHT YOU HERE?


It will be 2 years for me in October. I was back and forth to play gigs for about 5 years before that and it was always the plan to get over here fulltime. I had a few things to do back in Aus that I wanted to get done before I made the move so it was good motivation and I’ve never looked back!

HOW DOES THE MUSIC SCENE IN BALI DIFFER FROM BACK HOME?

It’s just so much different. The diversity of tunes over here is amazing and the amount of venues you get to play good quality house music at is amazing.

YOU RECENTLY LANDED YOURSELF A SIGNIFICANT ROLE AT MRS SIPPY, TELL US ABOUT THAT AND THE VENUE ITSELF?

I recently took over the Music Director role at Mrs Sippy from Adam Bennetts who was at the helm for the first year since opening. We have really established Mrs Sippy as one of the major beach clubs in Bali now and everything is going really well at the moment with high season.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE VENUE IN THE WORLD?

My favourite venue in the world is actually Mrs Sippy, but I also love Singlefin at Uluwatu – its hard to beat open air venues.

IF MONEY WAS NO OBJECT WHAT CAR OR MOTORBIKE WOULD YOU TREAT YOURSELF TO?

Right now, in Bali? Tough call - Probably a BMW x5.

IF DONALD TRUMP CAME TO MRS SIPPY AND CAME UP TO MAKE A REQUEST WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO HIM?

Show me the money or get out of my face.

WHAT IS YOUR GET OUT OF JAIL RECORD?

Tori Amos - Professional Widow (Armand's Star Trunk Funkin' Mix)

WHAT HAS BEEN THE MOST INCREDIBLE THING YOU HAVE SEEN FROM BEHIND A DJ BOOTH?

I have seen some crazy stuff over the last 12 years – most of which I can't say. Over the last year and half I have seen some great stuff (mainly backslams) off the 5m dive platform at Mrs Sippy every day.

WHAT'S YOUR SECRET SPOT IN BALI WHERE YOU GO TO ESCAPE?

Nusa Lembongan if I get a couple of days off to relax or 40thieves at night for a tasty cocktail and a boogie.

IF YOU COULD CHANGE ONE THING ABOUT BALI WHAT WOULD IT BE?

The locals getting paid more on average, especially at the bigger venues, these guys and gals work their buts off!!
