Nusantara Beat

Psychedelic supergroup Nusantara Beat are the latest Dutch band take the genre in bold new directions. Boasting members from Jungle By Night, POM, The Mysterons, Altın Gün, Surf Aid-Kit and EUT's outstanding front woman Megan de Klerk, their shared Indonesian roots are the basis of the outfit, which is inspired by 1970s South East Asian psych-folk. As the name implies, rhythm takes centre stage here – traditional percussion meets a Moog synthesiser and spiralling riffs, the tripped-out beats conjuring an aura of hazy sunshine and hallucinogenic visions.
