SPACESHIP ALOHA is the hyper-buoyant solo project from drummer/producer Christopher Sean Powell (AKA Pow Pow, PayPow, Powserati). SA’s first release, Universe Mahalo, Vol. 1, presents a kaleidoscope of lush melodies and joyous electronic rhythms inspired by Hawaii’s musical landscape. Intended for non-stop dancing, the live show is bursting with elements of vibrant addictive beats, refreshing sounds, and adventurous improvisation - all performed on an ecosystem of synthesizers, sequencers, electronic drums, and live percussion. Spaceship Aloha is the next generation of Powell’s explosive performance style, first seen in the avant-garde art rock ensemble Need New Body, followed by the experimental pop band Man Man.
Called a “cultural gadfly” by the New York Times and “ferally
original” by the New Yorker, Tim Fite spends the bulk of his time
cranking out genre-bending pieces of art and music. His most recent
album - "iBeenHACKED" - is a satyrical send-up of digital
codependence. In addition to the album, Fite recently exhibited
artwork at Platoon Kunsthalle - Berlin, Gallery Tom Blaess -
Switzerland, and The Beam Center of Brooklyn. And to top all that shit
off with a cherry, Fite is one half of the legendary Hip Hop duo
GRANT$. Stop frontin' and go to timfite.com.
