What in the world does it mean with these DJs tweet “Om Telolet Om?” It's an Indonesian phrase kids in that country shout at bus drivers, because Indonesian buses have a crazy arpeggiated horn sound.
On Tuesday (Dec. 20) afternoon, social media exploded with spam comments of the phrase, and it had a lot of DJs and other musicians wondering what it's all about. Even Spotify Indonesia recognizes its mysterious power.
As the meme continues to gather steam, Billboard Dance asked Indonesian-native producer Angger Dimas to try and shed some light on the sudden subject du jour. He was kind enough to respond via email.
