The New York-based producer will start his own label with an EP from Huerco S as Royal Crown Of Sweden.
Naples—a recent RA Breaking Through subject—has enjoyed a whirlwind 12 months: his well-received debut EP for Mister Saturday Night in early 2012 was followed by a remix of Four Tet's "128 Harps" (he met the UK producer at a Mister Saturday Night party in New York). This was followed by a second 12-inch for Mister Saturday Night, released at the start of 2013, with a 12-inch for Will Bankhead's The Trilogy Tapes label called El Portal on the way. He's just finished a brief European DJ tour that took in dates at Panorama Bar in Berlin, London's Corsica Studios and the Sub Club in Glasgow.
The first release on Naples' label will come from Royal Crown Of Sweden, a new alias of Opal Tapes affiliate Huerco S (as revealed in a recent interview with the producer on Juno Plus). R.E.G.A.L.I.E.R is comprised of three original tracks, with dubby A-side cut "Vänern" given a tweak from Lori and L.I.E.S affiliates Bookworms and Steve Summers. For an idea of what to expect, a brief teaser of all four tracks is streaming on the Proibito SoundCloud page.
