Listen To: Napolian


Sounding straight from LA, circa ’88, 17 year old Napolian’s label-debut EP Rejoice on Software Recording Co. is the newest and truest head trip to hit hip-hop and beyond. This Bay Area homeboy borrows the sexy synths and licks of old school cats like Zapp, The Whispers, and Shalamar, staying true to analog. Then Napolian adds his own tropical-blend of ambient-era Aphex Twin, Dam-Funk, and Burial; creating the densest, stickiest, staaankiest, sweet-to-the-end releases heard in a while. Peep: Napolian.
