DICE: Rolling It, Experimental Soul Funk Style!

DICE: Rolling It, Experimental Soul Funk Style!

We’ve met Dee before. She was flying solo back then; fabulously adding a new bold and memorable color to the best live music stages on the island, as she moved from Jakarta to Bali. With her wonderful talent poured in her soulful performances, she’d never just end up as merely another face or name in the entertainment scene; regardless the type of venue or crowd. 

 

We knew that Dee didn’t come up out of nowhere. She came with a long story of what and where her music career has brought her to. However, we were most excited about where she’d bring herself to in the near future; and the answer is rolling in a certain band called DICE.

 

Meet Dee (Vocals, Song Writer, Composer), Aweng (Guitar), Donny (Saxophone), Krishna (Bass), Bam (Guitar) and Palel (Drums), and all together they are kicking it as DICE!
This all started from the 3-month gig that Dee and Aweng had in Maldives. After they had finished their job there, they came home to the country inspired by this fresh idea of forming a band which would play Experimental Soul Funk. They wanted to find musicians from all kinds of different backgrounds and create a nice balance of their liking, combining all those different elements that are brought in, into that specific genre the already had in mind.

 


Their inspiration which was turned into a concrete idea was then followed by the manifestation of it; in form of four gentlemen perfect for the job, who took each of their positions in the band, getting it a whole leap closer to making it happen. So it happened. DICE was formed in May 2014, and they have been growing fast and performing the results of their groovy funky sound experiments on the high-profile music venues on the island ever since.

 


These six are more than ready to become the next rising star in the international music scene, as they should be, considering what they have to offer. Evidently, they have also shown to be moving towards the right direction for sure.  For example, they were one of the amazing bands to perform during the second year of the prestigious Bali Live International Jazz Festival 2015, both during the pre-event through the Bali Live Week, as well as on the main stage shared with big names from the international music scene.

 


DICE has an amazing dynamic and an undoubtedly soulful vibe. Their performances are powerful and their music is easy-listening in the best possible way. The band is currently just short moments away from releasing their debut self-titled album.  Most of their songs are about true events, all those things that can simply happen in anyone’s life, making it great music with lyrics that are easy to relate to.

 


We are quite sure that there are fans out there that are really looking forward to get a hold of this debut album. Well, in the mean time, what we can do is to share with you, what the band has shared with us! Tune in every day for the whole week at 7 AM, 12 PM and 7 PM Bali Time for DICE’s singles! And make sure not to miss our exclusive interview and live session from our studio on Sunday, April 26, 2015!

 

And at last, as the band said, “Roll the Dice in life, then you won’t regret living.”
