What is Le Feelings?I missed an era of Hawaii hip hop that I know little about, so I'll leave this one to Anasarca, who's been around the scene since the beginning. In 2008, she reminisced about Le Feelings on Asita Recordings' website:
"Le Feelings is a dj/producing collective from Hawaii consisting of Alston, Jade, Oliver (Twist), and Matt Ratt. I have nothing but the greatest respect for these guys, ever hungry for the best vinyl sounds in the universe, and a genuine love for music.
Probably my best memory of the group is circa 2001 in "the" Waikiki "apartment." I remember being impressed by how deep the commitment ran. From a living room stacked from floor to ceiling with records, a makeshift studio emerged as a meeting place for creativity.
I hate to sound so old, or get so nostalgic, but there is certainly something to be said for the loss of that type of incubated, pure and joyful atmosphere... music for the sake of music."
