heyrec and hey ø hansen started in the 80ies with a 60ies 70ies style rocksteady band in alpine innsbruck/tirol. then they moved to berlin in the nineties and passed the electronica age without much damage to themselves. now they make the conclusion and fly into AUSTRODUB future. you never know exactly what will happen next and you are allowed to dance.
hey ø hansen, berlins #1 most charming austro-alpine dub band is running the small record label 'heyrec' and has been making music for years everywhere from big clubs to small theatres constantly remixing improvised electronics & sing along dub chansons. hey ø hansen combine the strong moments of genuine hand made and unpredictable live performance with the relaxing freedoms and laidbackness of electronic music.
''Hardly any kind of music in recent years so steep and rapidly drove down, as the Alpino-Dub. With the music industry go downhill, and there are climbers ha just right. Bioniere of the genre are Hey ø Hansen, two to Berlin Bleichgesichter emigrated from Austria. This country is totally un-irie, the whole environment runs to reggae to play. Berlin also. What to do if you are necessarily subject to the Jamaican impact indulge? Kiffen? Shoe polish in the face? Nützt nothing - Hey ø Hansen have done everything right and easily create their own music. Gekifft they still have. Your Alpino-Dub, it is not the valley of young women, but schnurstracks on stage. And because - you know - just wait hundsköpfige bang frogs, the Dixie-loo entstiegene half beauties and narcissistic Heulsusen.''
