the Easy Alohas

In Hi-Fi Guest DJs: 24 April 1997

.

The Easy Alohas Bas Albers (28) and Gerard Janssen (29) are hated and loved in the Netherlands by introducing `danceable easy listening' to the Dutch dancefloors (latin percussion, wordless vocals, and weird instrumentation). They even had a hitsingle ('Aloha') in the Netherlands.

The Easy Alohas nowadays have their own clubnight in Amsterdam and deejay all around Europe. They even seem to have their own little fanclub in Berlin. The Alohas may not be as easy as they used to be, they still are highly original deejays which mix exotica, crime jazz, beatnik, space age funk, soul jivers, moogy sitartunes, rare grooves, weird techno, funky triphop, future disco, drum 'n bass and lots of percussion. To hear it is to understand it. The important English deejay magazine MixMag heard an Aloha-mixtape and thought it was brilliant.

The Easy Alohas take you for a ride to cloud number 007 to explore the frontiers in Hi Fi. But above all there should be dancing and hugging on the dancefloor.
