Lattex Plus x Florentine Summer 2018
Saturday, July 28, from 19, we return to Florence with a party with the Neapolitan duo Nu Guinea, Mirko Casalini and Dan-I.
For the first time we are in one of the cult places of the Florentine summer: ØFF Bar ● Swan Lake.
21:30 Nu Guinea
11.30 pm Mirko Casalini
The Nu Guinea duo, formed in Naples and now based in Berlin, creates sounds influenced by the idea of an exotic, perhaps imaginary place, the result of a constant musical research in the past. Their path can be defined as a historical investigation of "dancefloor" music in its purest sense. The key is the contamination between musical genres born from the encounter between different cultures and populations.
The project stems from the idea of jam sessions, fusions between electronic synthesizers and traditional instruments, characterized by a sound that is not aimed at perfection, but rather at "genuineness" and that can be understood as a constantly changing form.
The first Ep released at Early Sounds Recordings in 2014 is followed by the "World Ep" album on Tartelet Records. The Tony Allen Experiments is released in 2016, with the collaboration of Tony Allen, ancestor of the Afrobeat and historical drummer of the legendary Fela Kutii. Following the Nu Guinea founded their own record platform: NG Records The first release is a 45 rpm titled Amore, cover of an Italian song of the late '70s.
The 2018 marks instead a return to the origins. New Napoli, this is the title of the last LP, represents a special focus on the birthplace of the duo. They watch the 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 Naples. In this album the Nu Guinea are inspired by Disco, Jazz-Funk and Fusion Napoletana, combining these influences with the characteristic sound that distinguishes them.
