W decided to open a recording studio at W Bali, the first in W brand, how did you get this idea and why in Bali ?
Bali is a perfect location. It’s a vibrant and creative hub often called as “The Alternative Ibiza”. After all, who can’t find inspiration in paradise?
What was / is your objective for this studio?
W Hotel is a playground for musicians. W Sound Suite is an innovative way to help enable, inspire and refresh artists to create and connect. It’s unique space for artists to work hard and play hard.
Any result? Who came to your studio since the opening?
W Sound Suite is very busy actually. Many guests book though our website to rent the video, including some local and international public figures. Not only recording or music mixing, we also get Hen’s party booking. The guest wants to have her hen’s party in the studio just because it’s unique and different. We also provide cocktails and canapes called “The Rider” curated especially for the music studio, so it’s just perfect.
We are also producing monthly podcast with many well-known DJs that are playing at WOOBAR, including the legendary Pete Tong. Not only international musicians, but we also embraces local musicians including Double Deer Record artists from Jakarta.
