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.
