The Neapolitan Berlin-based duo, Nu Guinea, create sounds influenced by an imaginary exotic far distant place, shaped by constant research of music from the past. Their music path can be described as a historical research on “dancefloor music” in its purest way. The key is the contamination of music genres which was born after the encounter of different cultures and populations.

Nu Guinea is a project that comes out of jam sessions, melting synthesizers with instruments, containing handcrafted sounds that don’t aim for perfection but genuineness. It can be described as a constantly shape-shifting form, always open to new collaborations with other musicians.

Their first EP was released on Early Sounds Recordings in 2014 followed by “World Ep” on Tartelet Records. In 2016 they release their first album “The Tony Allen Experiments” featuring Tony Allen, the Afrobeat drum master, also known for his long time collaboration with the legendary Fela Kuti. In 2017 Nu Guinea start their own record label called NG Records. The first release was a 7″ called “Amore”, a cover of an italian disco hit originally released in the ’70s.

2018 signed a way back to their roots, with the LP “Nuova Napoli” , which represents a tribute to their hometown Napoli. In this album they watched their city from a distance reconstructing its energy from their studio in Berlin, calibrating their synths on the Vesuvius meridian, the volcano that has always protected and threatened Napoli. In this album the synthesizers fill the spaces between the past and the future, tightening in a single body of acoustic instruments, electronics and voices in Neapolitan dialect.
