The early journey of Indra Asikin Isa's musical career with Agus Sasongko & FSOP (late 90’s) which later became Media Distorsi in the early 2000s. Media Distorsi released its debut 'Chapter 01: TheBeginning' that became one of everybody’s favorite in the local underground scene during the indie-pop era. After Media Distorsi gone defunct, he has been involved in various techno entities and initiatives such as Microchip and Jakarta Techno Militia.

During the 2010s, Indra7's musical approach has been increasingly accepted and recognized by many in the domestic circuit. This is evident in 2011 and 2019 in which several domestic music platforms pinned the status of Techno DJ of the Year to him. However, it is recognized by many people that Indra7 is a metalhead with an acute level of rock & roll sensibility. Now, Indra7 just released “Gabriel EP” (taken from his son's name)under Dead Pepaya label recordings.

Indra7 explores the aesthetics of darkness by incorporating industrial techno sound elements; metallic, machinery, and distortive. He tries different new things as Dead Pepaya provides him with wide space for experimentation throughout the recording process. The record label ignores conservative boundaries in presenting electronic/club music releases from Indonesia. Three original tracks he produced for this EP are a track-record equipped with long flying-hours and banging statement.

Complementing the above-mentioned original productions, Turismo Avenue (part of Dead Pepaya), takes a rework slot. He delivers bursting breaks track patiently waiting to thrill clubs. For the first time, 'Gabriel EP' is released as one of the exclusive releases of 20 cassette copies at the Record Store Day Jakarta 2022 event. Furthermore, the public distribution of this fourth Dead Pepaya catalogue (DP-004) on both C-30 cassette and digital format (Bandcamp) will be starting from 6th May 2022.
