House On The Rock / Taste And See
| 2017 | US | Original (Aloha Got Soul)
12,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
AGS-7006 marks the first 7-inch release of these two songs!!Brought to light in the 21st century on Psychemagik’s Magik Sunrise compilation in 2013, “House On The Rock” is a shimmering, sophisticated groove with a strong West Coast sound — songwriter Rob Mehl spend nearly three decades between Southern California and Hawaii, where the surf was too irresistible to leave behind for very long. He first moved to Oahu in 1958, a year before Hawai‘i became the 50th state.“House On The Rock” has become a staple for summer-ready mixtapes from DJs and collectors, including multi-instrumentalist Shawn Lee of the modern day Yacht Rock group Young Gun Silver Fox.The equally strong “Taste And See” on the flipside provides the only lyrical reference to Hawai‘i (“mangos and papayas got flavors of their own”) while remaining in line with Mehl’s smooth West Coast vibe — he hired two of Chuck Mangione’s colleagues for the recording, guitarist Steve O’Conner and horn player John Rekevics.Surprisingly, Mehl’s original vision was to do an album of traditional Hawaiian music, but one day a friend told him he’s too “haole” and the idea just won’t work. “I was crushed, I was devastated. “Taste And Sea”, it was gonna be this mix of songs I’d written and kanaka wai wai (Hawaiian songs).”Photographer Steve Wilkings of the recently shuttered Surfer Magazine took pictures of Mehl surfing for the album cover. But label executives in California decided to use an illustration of a plate, fork and spoon instead.“They were thinking of a bigger audience. All I was thinking of was my friends — c’mon, nobody’s gonna buy this but my friends! — and I’d probably just give it to ‘em.” The original LP now sells for $200 online!!

The pair flew from Hawaii to California to record the backing tracks at A&M Studios, returning with the reels to Commercial Recording Studio in Honolulu, where they added Aiko’s voice and Dale’s synthesizer overdubs (and Aiko resumed her residency at the Oasis nightclub).“Fly With Me” is a sexy, exotic floater, crossing Love Unlimited-style two-step and West Coast AOR. On the flip, “Time Machine” is jazzy disco steppers, with a cosmic fizz and a light case of the Gloria Gaynors.

Finally, repressed!This 7-inch features two more heavy-hitting tracks from Mike Lundy’s Hawaiian holy grail 1980 LPOn the A-side is space-funk anthem “Nothin Like Dat Funky Funky Music”, originally unearthed by DJ Muro as the opening track to his 2009 mixtape, Hawaiian Breaks. The icing on the cake is a sweet soul duet, “Round And Around”, on the B-side. Mike Lundy’s last remaining copy of the LP hung on display in his living room for years. The master tapes were lost in a fire years ago. The seal was broken on Mike’s personal copy and the album was meticulously remastered for this Aloha Got Soul reissue series.

7" | 2016 | US | Reissue (Aloha Got Soul)

Release:2016 / US – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Finally, repressed!In 1976, Aura quickly rose to the top as Hawaii’s preeminent funk band when it secured the most coveted gig in Honolulu’s nightclub scene: a residency at The Point After. Consisting of eight siblings from the Mendoza family of Waipahu, Aura became the first local band ever to play the venue. They kept the gig for ten years. When they got into the studio in 1979, however, the band embraced ideas outside of their usual live act in the spirit of collaboration, absorbing new ideas from drummer Mike Kennedy, saxophonist Bill Popaka, and producer Gary Shimabukuro. The resulting eponymous album (scheduled for reissue on Aloha Got Soul in late 2016) is a potent blend of jazz and funk highlighted by their signature sibling sound: an unstoppable horn section and two sisters as lead vocalists. “Magic Lover” showcases what Aura can bring to the dance floor with its incredibly tight brass, solid groove, and dirty bass line—elevated by the voices of Beverly and Christine Mendoza. But a funk group is only as good as their ballads, and “Let Go, It’s Over” is proof they’ve got just as much talent when the tempo slows down.
Aeolus - A Retrospective
Aeolus
A Retrospective
2LP | 2017 | US | Original (Aloha Got Soul)
26,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
This anthology brings to light the music of Robert Aeolus Myers, featuring recordings from 1982 to 2006 that were previously available only on cassette or CD. The music within 'A Retrospective' tells the story of a man whose music elevates its listeners to a place of inspiration and enlightenment. Often ethereal, Aeolus’ music is driven by synthesizers, melodic flutes, sweeping patterns, and subtle rhythms to seed inspiration from deep within the listener. One might assume that Aeolus carved a new path for electronic music in Hawaii, but the islands never quite fully embraced the burgeoning New Age scene that Aeolus found himself a part of during the 1980s and the early 1990s. Few artists in Hawaii have produced a body of work, let alone embarked on a musical journey, such as the one that Aeolus has created.For Aloha Got Soul, this release marks a new chapter of bringing rare and relatively unknown music of Hawaii to the surface.

The band Aura’s self-titled album is nothing but superb late-seventies soul from Hawaii. Just expect sleekly bumptious, with brilliant musicianship and classy arrangements, dosed with jazz and funk (by way of Kool And The Gang), easily traversing ballads and booty-shakers... just the kind of thing Wayne Henderson was doing across the Pacific at the time with At Home productions, for Side Effect, The McCrarys and co.
