BAOL are King Sunny Ade P, Steve KIW and Skyywalker. 'The Balearic Assassins of Love’ – a DJ collective of vinyl junkies who worship at the Technics altar of sunrise and the quadrophonic wickerman of sunset-like 80s Kicker-shod party druids. Channelling ley-lines from Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads they encapsulate the spirit of Acid house, the emotional joy of pop and the laid-back loose feel of the White Isle with whatever else works for them there and then! Forever on an eternal quest to slay the dragon of segregation and the pigeon-hole of pretence they gather frequently and mix together musical forms as diverse as hypno Latvian Acid Skiffle, Mystic Tibetan Yacht Rock and Hokus Pocus Voodoo Shizzle to create that eclectic, highly danceable, couldn’t care less, ‘last day of the holiday’ feel.
Once famously described as ‘A cross between the opening party at Amnesia and the last days of Sodom and Gommorah.
