Located above a busy cafe in South Jakarta, Moonship Music is a small sanctuary for jazz, funk, ambient and balearic lovers. Ekel, the owner, left his 9-to-5 job in 2019 to dive deeper into the world of vinyl. The Moonship shop, blog and mix series are named in homage to Sun Ra’s “Moonship Journey”. Ekel’s newest mix is a perfect representation of the Moonship aesthetic. Get ready to dwell in an eclectic, modern past filled with avant jazz, minimalist electronics and syncopated rhythms throughout!
Coming later in February, we will have mixes from Microtone (USA), YeongAra (Singapore) and Ican Harem (Bali). We will announce our March selectors soon!
In his younger years, Ekel played bass with a heavy nod to the funk tradition. In 2017, he began collecting records; excited by the process of searching for and finding new-to-him music and genres. He then opened Moonship Music, a record store inspired by and curated around his fascination with the evolution of electronic music & digging culture. The culture and community of crate-digging provided him an essential platform to address his life-long aspiration of preserving cultural significance within the music industry he has always known and loved.
