It’s one of the best kept secrets of the Indonesian archipelago. Hidden away on a pop album inspired by The Police, lies ‘Licik’, a deep vocoder funk workout lasting over nine minutes. ‘Licik’ is a hauntingly unique track and a testament to the quality of some of the best music the archipelago has to offer. It’s the first recorded Indonesian song to use the vocoder in such a way. The B-side pays tribute with a re-contextualisation of the original by Bali-based Dea Barandana.
