MW-59 was a musician who performed in the musical track "Batuu Boogie" with fellow artist Chaka Mater Laka. "Batuu Boogie" was one of the tracks used by the droid DJ R-3X in Oga's Cantina, located in Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu in the Outer Rim, in the year 34 ABY. The local radio station, BSO 401.72, broadcast the cantina playlist, which could be heard in the refreshers near Mubo's Droid Depot, inside the Black Spire Station garage, inside the Black Spire Outpost Market, and inside Docking Bay 5 at the local spaceport.
