“I have known Eka for a long time. I see a lot of her content which is very funny and very fun and I think the content is very musical on YouTube. Okay, we are based on electronic music but the pop has to be louder. I and Eka have an agreement, ‘how can we make a music that is still a bit Western pop but we want the tone to be a bit Malay,” explained Winky Wiryawan.

Eka Winky Project in this inaugural project presents a single titled Summer Tears. They then tried to present local elements in EDM music which is often loved by young people.

“Initially I thought it was nothing, but where did you find your soul mate, it ended up being this project. We are happy to call it a music producer duo,” said Eka Gustiwana.

“Actually, if you listen, there are details that I took from Betawi elements. There is reggae and Eka is famous for combined traditional music,” continued Winky.

Eka Winky Project is under FloorInc, a sub-label of Sony Music Entertainment Indonesia. With the presence of the Eka Winky Project, it is hoped that Indonesian EDM music can dominate the world market.
