Hotel Death Star

Bio

Forging the skills of singer-songwriter Phil Stoodley and composer-producer Andreas Arianto, this collab was spawned in the cold mountains of snow-drenched Japan. Caught in a storm, Phil scratched out melodic beats in the room of a hotel that inhaled the weather, rather than protected him from it.

Bringing the rough recordings back to his home in Bali, Phil teamed up with Andreas and together they shaped the new sounds into a writhing pulse of deep-house while keeping the grit of its birthplace firmly etched within its grinding drones and beats.

Their first single, ‘You’re Not Jesus’ found its title whilst kayaking with friends as the sun rose over the North Bali ocean. As one friend swam off into the deep, another was caught on video screaming a warning, “You’re not Jesus!” The audio immortalised in Hotel Death Star’s first release, looped as a sample to mark the track’s chorus.

HOTEL DEATH STAR IS:

PHIL STOODLEY
Based in Bali, Phil performs regularly on the island along with yearly shows in his home country New Zealand, as well as in Australia and Japan. With over 20 years in the music business, he has composed music for TV, films, and commercials, produced various albums and played alongside international artists such as Velvet Revolver, Simple Minds, Jimmy Barnes and Neil Finn. A solo EP is set for release in 2021 hailing back to his old school rock and swagger roots. He is also the co-founder of ‘The Bali Rooftop’, a start-up project that promotes Indonesian and touring artists performing in Bali.
