Dear party folks, The Sweatbox this Saturday, December 9th, returns with an impressive guest: Jonathan Kusuma (ID) . He has graced our decks once before with his alien-like sounds, intergalactic and interstellar music, filled with loopy bleeps and featuring a dark and groovy sound innuendo. A skilled producer as much as a skilled DJ, Kusuma's music is at the very least inspiring , transcending time tags and orientation. He manages to create a universal journey of ethereal sounds and none the less, soul-soothing energies and an ethereal ambience. Currently based in Singapore, he continues to deliver his sounds with grace and his creativity behind the decks will surely leave you inspired and make you dance !
