Amphibeus Tungs / Press

“These musical geniuses from Maui have what we would call a inspirational mix between hip hop, island, and Hawaii style music. There collection of music is very riveting in some cases rare. Most would say there style that of old school hip hop with deep thought lyrics, like that of original MCs. These artist have been co-signed by Spaced Out Magazine, so there you go! Marching hard from the island of MAUI, HAWAII.”

“DAILY TOKER TUNES / Best of Music: “Smoke that Feelen” by the Amphibeus Tungs By Cannabis Karri on October 15, 2009 Subliminal Freedom Vol. 1 2008 and it deserves a replay! Enjoy! Today we have the AMPHIBEUS TUNGS with their feel good track, “Smoke that Feelen”. Maybe it’s because the Amphibeus Tungs are from Hawaii, but this hip hop track is as relaxing as Indica on a white sand beach. Or maybe it’s because this group has two Jays (two Jays are always better than one!). Founded by Beau Sun, Quest Eons and Doc. Platypus and welcoming turntabalists Pazess One and Jai Freedom Lewis with DJ Jay Peace Pipe and One Chef Strum, these guys groove just as much as they rhyme. I love the vibe that the Tungs lay down on this track, it is the perfect song to groove us through the week. This is one you will want to add to your basement party mix tape! Mahalo and Aloha!”

“Jamal, East, Syze One, Buzz and Humanakas (sp) The Abyss are the back in tha day ones. In 2000 at the “Off the Hook Jam” on Big Island, Joe Baxter’s event. Kamehameha Projects now Revolutionary Habitats, Amphibeus Tungs and I were holdin it for Maui, also Demune can’t forget him neither.”

“Although Amphibeus Tungs has never released a full-length album, its polished prod-uctions sound as radio-ready as any other hip-hop act in Hawai‘i. What sets the Maui-based group apart from other acts is its musical formula, which melds old-school hip-hop beats with soul, jazz and Island melodies. Beau Sun and Quest Eons, who compose all of the Tungs’ lyrics, can rap over almost anything—obscure samples altered by turntablists Pazess 1 and Jay Peace Pipe, live roots rock guitar and jazz piano provided by musician-producer Jai Freedom Lewis, even the ‘ukulele, played by the newest member, Chef Strum. Amazingly, it all works—to hypnotic, head-nodding effect. “We like to keep it all original, not just copy what everyone else on the Mainland is doing,” says Beau Sun. The Tungs’ debut album, 1st Impressions, is due out this year. Until then, look out for its high-energy live shows on Maui and, possibly, O‘ahu.”

“We finish off with Amphibeus Tungs off the Subliminal Freedom album. Good Times and Great Music! Now in high quality sound and podcasting!”
