Information:

Blue Hawaii have been recording and releasing music for almost a decade. You would think ithad been clockwork by now, but their fourth record, Reduction Internal, has proved to be anything but. Spanning genres as diverse as trance, acoustic, UK garage, trip-hop and house, its core elements are lighthearted and groovy. But oddly, Reduction Internal was born out of unfortunate circumstance. The duo were scheduled to tour through Southeast Asia & Japan in Autumn ’18 but plans changed suddenly when Agor smashed up his heel in Germany. Instead of the tour, he came back to Montreal for treatment - hence the title - Reduction Internal, the foot surgery he received.

Ra was going through her own challenges at this time, being on the heel end of a messy breakup - the kind where you almost get married and spend your life together only to find everything torched to ashes. Much like the surgery, that emotional rollercoaster also left her feeling torn open and fixated. The remedy: hit the club and make a record that makes you scream in joy at the speakers. Agor and Ra connected during their recovery periods, and through their different pains the tunes came together naturally, a healing through fun and friendship. Tied together with signature diva vocals, dreamy tones and liquid beats, Reduction Internal is the living proof of turning a bummer situation into a golden opportunity.

Blue Hawaii is a two person electronic project consisting of Ra and Ag, who met doing parties and shows in Montreal and continue to create together despite living in separate cities - split between Montreal and Berlin. Reduction Internal  is their fourth LP and continues the thread of dreamy electronic pop and dance floor playability.
