It was once upon a time in the early 80’s – when we deeply breathe in a unique and unparalleled musical aroma, a song made up of magical sounds and transposed into clean but obviously dynamic sounds. That would be the feeling we get today when it comes to the track that I want to present to you now.

Simon Mills previous EP for Neapolis as One Half of Bent, the Akanaya EP, was as summery, mood-enhancing and life-affirming come, with nods aplenty towards dub disco, deep house, Balearica and Brazilian music. Sundown-ready, right? And if you think that the summer is over, well there is still the possibility that thanks to Simon Mills‘ music the summer of our hearts will always remain an eternal one. That’s actually the feeling we get when we listen to One Half of Bent with the song Bella Bella, because that’s what it’s all about.
There’s a similarly sundown-ready feel to this delightfully colourful follow-up, with the Nottingham-based veteran first delivering a dash of vocal-sporting Balearic deep house/nu-disco fusion (the Flamenco-guitar sporting smile of ‘Alright‘), before conjuring up mental images of open-air Rimini dancefloors of the early ’80s on the gorgeous and sun-soaked “Bella Bella“.

You will have the chance to listen to this track on our radio station, and of course on all the major music platforms on the internet. In the EP of the same name Bella Bella, Mills reaches for squelchy boogie sounds on the sunrise-ready AOR synth-pop of ‘Don’t Hang Up‘, and we also have a typically deep, atmospheric and evocative deep house rework of ‘Duerme‘ by the italian dream house original Don Carlos. The EP ‘Bella Bella’ is already available to buy on Juno Records.

Below you have a video-teaser that you must necessarily see if you miss a dive into the abyss of dreaming:
