Various Artists – Napoli Segreta Vol.2
Written by Toby Taylor on 22nd January 2020
Following on from the success of the first Napoli Segreta compilation, NG RECORDS follows up with an exploration into the unknown groovy side of Naples by releasing Napoli Segreta Vol.2.
Napoli’s finest crate diggers Famiglia Discocristiana, DNApoli and Nu Guinea join forces once again to collate a new compilation of nine exceptional cuts of ’70s and ’80s Neapolitan disco & funk drawn from the far flung depths of the Neapolitan underground.
As the first compilation demonstrated so brilliantly, the ’70s and ’80s were an incredibly fertile period culturally in Naples. A remarkable merging of soul, disco, funk, blues, new wave, afro-beat and boogie sounds materialised to dominate the underground scene during the era, only to fade into obscurity nearly as quickly as they had emerged.
Luckily for us, Famiglia Discocristiana, DNApoli and Nu Guinea have made it their mission to bring these forgotten gems to a new audience, introducing a new generation of fans to some of the most fascinating and exciting music to come out of the city.
Napoli Segreta Vol.2 is released on the 14th February. You can pre-order it here.
