Blue Hawaii is Alex 'Agor' Cowan and Raphaelle Standell and Agor Edits is one of those late year gift releases that catches your attention as a worthy addition to any Top 10 Electronic Releases of 2014 list. In the spirit of the international touring they've done this year Cowan's made available a series of edits of older material that bridges their recorded and live experiences.
It’s the end of the year, so to commemorate the global underground touring we did— to all the people who were interested in coming to and putting on a Blue Hawaii show in Bangkok or Vilnius— we decided to put together a free mixtape of edits — somewhere between the dreamy record and the banging live show....In 2015, Ra will focus on her other band, BRAIDS, who have just completed a beautiful, deeply emotional, new record which I am very excited to see come into the world. I will use what I’ve learnt this year DJing and roaming the earth to produce more music this winter — planning on releasing material in a similar vein to this mixtape and hitting SXSW this March as DJ Blue Hawaii.. holding down the fort until Ra and I can record another album… something 4 y’all to look forward to! —;) Agor (the boy in Blue Hawaii)
