About this item
Nu Genea née Nu Guinea joined the ranks of Comet's Afrobeat Makers series back in 2016 following a pair of top 12"s on Early Sounds and Tartelet. Now this was a couple of years before the Neapolitans became underground megastars with their "Nuova Napoli" LP, so got sadly slept on by some. Luckily, there's now a second bite at the cherry, so don't laze away this time. By re-working the original drum patterns from Afrobeat master Tony Allen, the duo created a compilation of super groovy tracks in their typically voluminous
electronic jazz-funk style. Hints of Mediterranean house meet spacey gurgles, soaring synth lines top shuffling rhythms and the whole thing is cool as fuck. Essential tackle for fans of either Afrobeat or that Naples sound.
