Back in January 2015!

Hello! We would like to thank everyone who is involved during our 1 month trial alpha testing. So many feedback from friends, experts and even media. It was a mistake in our part to publish it publicly and unfortunately, we are being mistaken as a social networking platform for musicians. First and foremost, I appreciate everyone’s feedback and concerns during our alpha test. We have also received lots of positive feedback, especially from the design and layout point of view. Enough about the past but here is what is going to happen to 5Beat.

Ecommerce direct from musicians to fans

We will be launching our beta testing on January 2015 & this time we will be focusing on the ecommerce side of 5Beat. We have been working real hard around the clock and contacting musicians from both the indie & mainstream side of things. If you are reading this & you are a musician, do not hesitate to contact me at

Music Curator

We will be housing the largest wikipedia clone for Indonesian Musicians, aside from selling gears, we would like to curate to you fans on what is really going on from the music industry. For too many times, especially the recent years, that people in general are bored with the music industry. So we take it upon ourselves to expose the unknown and maybe known talents to you real music fans of Indonesia. From genres such as hip hop, folk, r&b and so much more genres to explore, you will not be bored by our selection of Indonesian Music Artists.

Music Chart

Yes, we will be having our own music chart, and best of all it will be organic. We would like to encourage you music fans to explore all activities in 5Beat like youtube video plays or soundcloud plays and help boost your artist ranking in 5Beat. You can relax, because ALL the videos are not hosted by us but by the works’ respective owners. So we are not gaining anything but your own leisure & fun times here at 5Beat.

So, as of today, we will be developing 5Beat to elevate yet again Indonesian Music Industry to its glory days.

Terima kasih!

5Beat Top 10 Most Viewed Artists



Hello Indonesia! We are proud to announce that 5Beat has already launched on 20th October 2014 and we have been hearing all kind of feedback from people in the music industry, media and even from the startup folks in Indonesia. We would like to thank everyone for their kind words and support. Our vision and mission has changed a lil bit since I wrote this blog on July. Our mission & vision is now more realistic and we are still aiming to leverage the music industry through 5Beat. For our first phase as part of our version 1.0, we have introduced to the world, Indonesia’s largest and maybe most complete database to Indonesia’s music industry. Here we want to encourage musicians to keep doing what they are good at: Creating music for people to listen and enjoy. Without the hassle of infotainment or whatnot, we want to help & create opportunity for mainstream, indie & even those unsigned. We would like to curate Indonesia Music to the world through musicians’ works & aspiration. As mentioned we are still at the infancy stage and we are still far from where we want to be but team 5Beat believe that we have what it take to bring glory back to the music industry.

Our earliest feature introduce a simple popularity contest, to see whose artists’ profile have the most views. Here we would like give back to the people and musicians on real popularity. We are glad to introduce last week (week 1) top 10 most views!
