Angger Dimas (Artist Spotlight #2)

If Nasi Goreng, the mash up of rice, egg and vegetables is Indonesia’s national food dish then
DJ and producer Angger Dimas represents Indonesia’s national music dish with his mash up of
chopped beats and pumping synths that are topped off with some Dutch inspired spicy sounds!

Hailing from Jakarta 22 year old Angger has been playing guitar since the age of 7 and began
his journey into dance music after launching his DJ career just 3 short years ago. Signed to
Australia’s mighty Vicious Recordings in early 2009 Angger has spent the rest of the year tuning
his craft and making quite an impact in the process! His debut release “Duck Army” was played
by the likes of Tocadisco, Joachim Garraud and Laidback Luke, just to name a few - it’s
tuff, bleepy, but still a jacking sound showcasing the Angger Dimas production and DJ vibe.
Following this release he teamed up with Vandalism and enjoyed massive international support
on his collaboration release "She Got It". Added to the Australian 2010 Ministry Of Sound
Annual CD, this track was also dropped by Sebastien Ingrosso as his opening track at the
famed “Sensation” event for 20,000 New Years Eve fans in Melbourne & regularly features in the
playlists of David Guetta, Chuckie, Armand Van Helden, Laidback Luke and even Axwell.

Angger’s remix of “I Like That” by Richard Vission & Static Revenger went Top20 in the UK’s
Cool Cuts Club Chart, #1 ARIA Dance Chart in Australia and continued his tradition of turning out
pumping remixes for the likes of Ian Carey (3BEAT UK), Oliver Twizt (Spinnin, Netherlands),
Kaskade (Ultra, US), Mind Electric (Vicious), Freemasons (LOADED UK), Javi Mula (BLANCO
Y NEGRO, Spain), Tommie Sunshine (ULTRA US, Sgt Slick (Vicious) and personal requests
from Kaskade to remix his smash “All You” and new album track “Fire In Your New Shoes”.

Angger’s “Fight Club” was smashed internationally by dj’s all over the world, paving the way
for his new single “Plastik” released through Vicious in early 2010. Angger hit Australia & New
Zealand in February 2010 on DJ tour with Avicii (Sweden) after constantly rocking the best
parties & clubs in Indonesia for the past 3 years. His pumping performances were received with
rave reviews and gave him the opportunity to road test forthcoming collaborations with ARIA
Nominated DJ/producer Tommy Trash, Ministry Of Sound’s Neon Stereo and stable mate
