The Easy Alohas

In Hi-Fi Guest DJs: 16 October, 1997



The Easy Alohas spin a soundtrack to the high life.

The Easy Alohas' Bas Albers (29, philosopher) and Gerard Janssen (29, physicist/oceanographer) are producers/deejays who introduced `danceable easy listening (latin percussion, wordless vocals, and weird instrumentation) to the Amsterdam dancefloors . They even had a Dutch hit single ('Aloha'). Recently, they produced an underground Arabic triphop EP, which is now distributed worldwide (Camel Walk EP- Spy Fi, pssst/mox music).

The Alohas have played their records in cities like Berlin, London, New York, Brussels, Sarajevo, Bern, and more. They may not be as easy as they used to be. They still are highly original deejays who mix exotica, beatnik crime jazz, big band sound explosions, space age funk, soul jivers, moogy sitartunes, rare grooves, weird techno, funky triphop, organic drum 'n bass and break beat percussion.

To hear it is to understand it. The Easy Alohas take you for a ride on cloud number 007, where they explore the frontiers of Hi-Fi. But above all, there will be dancing and hugging on the dancefloor.
