Agoeng Zen is one of the senior in Indonesian Djing circuit. He started playing as a resident in 5 star hotels in Bali in the early 2000. By the mid 2000 he played throughout Bali, moving out of the hotel scene to the clubs around Kuta and Seminyak. Even though those clubs played different kind of music, he still move the crowd every week. In 2004 he started in Liquid bar (Bali) where he impress the crowd at the grand opening. Double six, Paparazzi and Mbargo (all in Bali) are next where he played continuously for two and a half years, more than ten hours a day!! at each club respectively. He pioneered in introducing elektro house in Bali at club Double six, at the same time he started playing new and different kind of song every week. Those days, Djs in Indonesia mostly still play progressive tribal music week in, week out. He teach the masses to understand the new genre. It wasnt an easy journey. It took him more than a year to make the masses understand and learned it as the progressive house played every day and it gets a little tiresome. The fight bears fruit as elektro are now played by so many big name Djs in Indonesia such as Romy 1945 mf, Dj Naro and many more. The Zens invasion to the rest of Indonesia started in Jogja, Bandung and Jakarta. In Bandung he wow the crowd so much and was asked by Elektra 666 to join them on the spot. At the time he was still a resident at Double six, Paparazzi and Mbargo, which are the busiest clubs in Bali. After joining them, he played for a lot of big events all over the country as Elektra 666s artist until the present date. In his time, he played alongside many top international Dj including Pete Tong (UK), Lisa Lashes (UK), Armand Van Helden (US), Bodyrockers, Kaz James & Dylan Burns (AU), Marco Polo (Italy), Kevin Shiu (Canada), Petrae Foy (Germany), Danny Howell (US) and many more. At one time, Jim Breese (Hed Kandi, UK) was his partner as a resident DJ in club Double six. He appeared as a regular guest Dj in clubs such as Dragonfly, Embassy, Centro, The Rain (Jakarta), Vertical Six, Hugos (Surabaya), Amare, Kyooki (Bandung), Hugos, and Liquid (Jogja).The Zen is very different from his name, not the all peace and quiet state but rocking everywhere he play.
