2018 repress of nu guinea’s outstanding ‘world’ ep – the neapolitan duo is set to release new material on tartelet later in the year as part of the labels 10 th anniversary. the beautifully dislocated bougainvilles live lays out some warm analogue textures across a live percussion base, while the vocal edit of title track nu world ploughs a similar furrow to obscure 80’s afro-disco, with rich musical synth work over a pacey afro groove and undeniable jazz-funk flair. the flute mix passes over the vocal refrain from mix one and just gets down and wigs-out on those solos - an absolute killer! exotica dance club sounds like herbie visited the salsoul studios with his banks of analogue gear and jammed out into the small hours, as we head home on the beatless outro, all synth washes and lavish ear candy.
ltd repress - almost 2 years after the success of the album the tony allen experiments and a few months after the release of the 7inch amore, nu guinea return to the scene with a new lp published by their newborn label ng records. after touring the world looking for sounds suitable for their vibrations, nu guinea decided to go back to square one, napoli, where massimo di lena and lucio aquilina were born and raised. they watched their city from a distance reconstructing its energy from their studio in berlin, calibrating the synths on the meridian of vesuvius, the volcano that has always protected and threatened napoli. nuova napoli is the result of a long musical research that has become a historical investigation on the sound that shaped napoli during the 70s and 80s, starting from the contamination of genres (disco, jazz-funk, african rhythms) which ended up in nu guinea’s dna. in this album the synthesizers fill the spaces between the past and the future, tightening in a single body acoustic instruments, electronics and voices in neapolitan dialect. it is the first time that the duo has worked with such a large group of musicians, some of whom are exponents of the contemporary neapolitan scene. warning: we recommend listening to nuova napoli while walking in the alleys of napolis historic center, around wet clothes hanging and street vendors on tiny three-wheelers.
the neapolitan berlin based duo nu guinea inaugurates their new in-house label ng records with a sparkling mélange of jazz-funk and obscure disco. with its own special italian flavour, the reinterpretation of chrisma s late 70s ode to love finds its complement in a refreshing arcane dancefloor expedition. previously pressed as a private wedding present, -amore- is now being officially released as a limited edition of 350 copies.
