There’s always something coming out the speakers in the Ticket Arena office, so we thought we’d share some of the sonic splendours that soundtrack all of our hard work. Now a weekly feature that brings a different artist to the fore each Wednesday, the TA Mix Of The Week scours the vaults for some of our favourite sets of old and keeps a beady eye out for the classics of the future, serving up a taste of the artists that make us happy to do what we do.
Hailing from Naples, a city known for its impeccable taste, multi-instrumentalists Nu Guinea are here for an hour long sampling session to showcase that this also extends to music, so get ready to feast on their beats. While one mixes some disco sounds with world music on wax which features funky horns, fast paced percussion and foreign vocals (Shazam is no use to you for this one, this talented pair must have delved into some vortal-like crates to dig out these rare cuts), the other half tinkles on keys, providing another dimension of unworldly melodies for listeners to move and groove to. Finished off with some interchangeable twisted effects - like a Neapolitan pizza is dusted with a sprinkling of seasoning - these fellas are here to prove that Italians do it best.
Nu Guinea are taking to London’s XOYO venue as part of the new Dekmantel Soundsystem residency, they’ll be joined by The Mauskovic Dance Band, Bruxas, Sassy J and Calypso Steve on Friday 1st November.
