JAKARTA, INDONESIA – January 3, 2017 (GMT+7) – DUNIA, as an independent band, are excited to announce the release of debut EP Semesta Fana after two years of expectation and hard work. The EP will be available on January 2, 2017 which also will be available on iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp and many more streaming services / online music distributors.
Semesta Fana contains five piece instrumental prog-metal song: Evolvians, The Wanderers, Traverse The White Light, Be, and It Is, and Ignition 1.6. DUNIA has been successfully mixed the elements of metal, electronic, and jazz music in this EP. For example, there is a saxophone solo on the song Ignition 1.6, and there are lots of electronic instruments in most of all songs. Run from the limits, DUNIA also invited Soichiro Mizuno (Takenawa Intrigue/Sebon), a guitarist from Japan to fill in the guitar solo on the song The Wanderers that has been released on December 23, 2016 ago via bandcamp, and there is also a guitar playthrough for The Wanderers that has been uploaded on DUNIA’s YouTube channel. As an independent band, DUNIA recorded the materials by themselves. All the guitar tracks are recorded at Yutsi’s studio (Aion), and the drums are recorded at Joshua’s studio, then mixed and mastered by Wisnu Ikhsantama at Soundpole Studios.
DUNIA is started when Yutsi made a project with Fadil in the end of 2014. The first band formation was Yutsi (guitar), Fadil (ex.guitar), and Joshua (drum). In January 2015, DUNIA has released their single “Ignition”, which also featured on Indonesian Djentlemen compilation album. The formation was changed after Fadil signed out and replaced by Redhy Mahendra as an additional guitarist. DUNIA became a finalist of Digilive Bandfest 2016 with their single “Ignition” and got a chance for a live record.
An international Djent music community, ItDjents, will also feature Semesta Fana EP Stream on their YouTube channel ItDjentsTV in the same date as the release date.
