Indonesian DJ Dipha Barus made his name by coming up with hits after hits. Known as a member of electronic group Agrikulture since 2010, Dipha Barus paved his own way in recent years by releasing duets with singers such as Kallula, Rinni Wulandari, Teza Sumendra and Monica Karina. His particular touches in music include incorporating less-known Indonesian traditional beats in modern grooves.
