ANAN is a project borne from DJs Roberto Agosta and Massimo Napoli’s musical inspiration. The name ANAN simply comes from the initials of the two composers’ surnames – Agosta and Naples – twice repeated. Four letters, also contained in the album title Room, refer to the space in Catania, Siciy, where the two artists create their music.
Room is a mature and intense album that draws inspiration from the two composers’ favourite genres in music: jazz, ’70s psychedelia, afrobeat, cumbia and soul. The album’s ethereal sound draws the listener into a melting pot of these musical styles that blend perfectly with each other, making the album both versatile and innovative. A combo of session musicians colours and masterfully enriches the deep melodies of the recordings, as though it were a live session coordinated and directed by the two DJs.
