A producer and DJ, as well as operator of the Incienso and Proibito record labels, Anthony Naples is a New York City based artist whose tracks have been termed "outsider house." The tag might fit only because he didn't intend to have his work played in clubs, since most of his output -- despite off-center touches and occasional challenges for DJs -- is functional for dancefloors. Naples, who grew up hearing Miami bass in his hometown and later got into experimental electronic music -- debuted on the Mister Saturday Night label in 2012 with "Mad Disrespect," a mellow, slightly vaporous track with clever sample usage. During the next couple years, additional EPʼs materialized on labels like Rubadub, City2 St. Giga, and Will Bankheadʼs The Trilogy Tapes. Body Pill, his first album, was released in 2015 on Four Tetʼs Text label. As a label owner, Anthonyʼs influence led to both Incienso and Proibito releasing critically acclaimed albums from both DJ Python (Dulce Compania, 2017) and Huerco S. (For Those Of You..., 2016), as well as many vital 12” from producers working in the New York City underground house and techno scene.
