The Foundry No. 8 well known with its regular themes. HAILME for House Music lovers. They have Rhythms Affairs for you who loves Electro and Big Room sound. For Trance lovers, they have Awakening. Usually, you need to attend events in separate days for each theme. What if you can attend ALL themed-party in just one event?
SSHHTT! We have Silent Disco!
We were thrilled when we received the flyer from Foundry about the event. So on 17 June 2016 we came to Foundry. The line up for HAILME deck were Morena, Jessy, Anza Mauriza, Fendy, and Groovyland. On Rhythms Affairs deck, they've got Harish, Tanzel, Mahesa Utara, and Joana. While Awakening deck had MIKO, Roni Joni and Syndromatic. We had 3 decks, 3 kinds of music, and triple fun that night.
On the gate, we were given headset to enjoy the music. When we arrived at the main hall, the club unusually quiet. Only the chats were heard from the crowd. That all change when we put our headset. That was when the magic begun. There were 3 channels we can choose. Red for HAILME, Green for Rhythms Affairs, Blue for Awakening. All you gotta do just switch the channels to listen the music you like.
Going to silent disco event is definitely different than you go to regular events. At regular events, you can only listen to one DJ set at a time, and definitely you're not using a headphone. Well, this year Foundry offered different concept. For the third year, they prepared 3 decks. Foundry let us, the crowd, decided which channel we want to listen.
That's why in dance floor you can see different lights from the headphone. Even if you came in a group, the music choice could be different. You can see how people dances to different music they heard.
The decks placed in same level as the dance floor. With this arrangement, the crowd can get a closer look of their favorite DJ performance. Some of them also had selfies with the DJ. The crowd also showed appreciation whenever they heard their favorite track played.
The only note is on the headphone itself. If your headphone got some trouble, such as no sound from one side, you can ask for replacement. So make sure to check your headphone before enjoy the party.
Freedom to choose. That's the main theme of Silent Disco. No one judge your choice of music. Everybody came because they love the music. Yes, this is the alternative for you to have new experience enjoying electronic music in Jakarta. It may be a silent disco, but the music that we listened, wouldn't allow us to be silent on the dance floor.
See you on the next Silent Disco Party!
