DJ and music producer Dipha Barus has released a remix of Hindia’s hit single “Secukupnya” (Enough).
Dipha said he was drawn to the song during self-quarantine for the COVID-19 outbreak and decided to put his own spin on it.
“I really like the original song, the lyrics, the arrangement, the artwork and the campaign," he said in a statement. "This song has a very strong character."
Hindia is the solo project of Baskara Putra, lead vocalist and producer of Jakarta-based rock band .Feast.
On Spotify, “Secukupnya” is Hindia’s most-listened-to song, with over 34 million plays after its release in 2019 as part of the debut album Menari dengan Bayangan.
Dipha said the remix featured old analog instruments he had used as a member of other bands. He also incorporated the voice of Baskara’s mother in the remix.
“I rearranged this song as I wanted to give it a new [twist] while keeping the emotional attachment felt by Hindia’s loyal listeners,” Dipha said.
Reacting to the remix, Hindia said: "I never expected Dipha to [choose] the song. This is an honor.”
The remix is distributed by Hindia’s label, Sun Eater, and is available at all digital music platforms.
A member of electronic group Agrikulture since 2010, Dipha paved his own way in the music industry in recent years by releasing duets with singers such as Kallula, Rinni Wulandari, Teza Sumendra and Monica Karina. His signature sound blends less-known traditional Indonesian tunes with modern beats.
He gained national fame for his 2016 single “No One Can Stop Us” featuring Kallula. The music video has been viewed over 2.5 million times on YouTube.
A celebrated musician, Dipha has won numerous Anugerah Musik Indonesia (AMI) Awards since 2016. (gis/wng)
