Music: Anthony Naples – Body Pill (TEXT Records, 2015)

Anthony Naples is a musician and producer currently based in Berlin. His music is often described as a raw and left field mixture of House and electronic music. His debut release “Mad Disrespect” was an underground succes and in the early months of 2013, three 12″ were released in quick succession – most notably a slightly abstract four-track EP on The Trilogy Tapes imprint.

I became aware of Naples in a DJ Set from Four Tet. It was his Ray Ban Boiler Room set from last year. He played the track “Perro” an simple but hypnotic house track. A couple days later he uploaded the set on soundcloud but there was no signal about a detailed tracklist. There were also many requests about the tracklist but no words about the played tracks. There were also 1-2 months passed away until a still twitter announcement by Four Tet. In this post he announced the track id and the upcoming ep by Anthony Naples. At the beginning of 2015 Naples released his debut album on Four Tet’s label TEXT Records. “Body Pill” was a rough pice of house music with a litte touch of ambiente. Not that kind of typically club house music. It is definitly more experimental and you need a little time to get into it. It’s a short pice of music the album runtime is about 30 minutes but there is a good variant of tracks. Maybe his debut is not quite as good as his past ep’s but it is still a great record. In my opinion this producer is just in the early stages, so we will see what comes next by him. Until then you can listen to one of his greatest tracks below “Perro”.
