James Lavelle Presents UNKLE Sounds Naples #GU41 (Global Underground)

The bespoke concept is amplified on James Lavelle of Unkle’s contribution to the re-jumpstarted legendary Global Underground series Naples #GU41. The double-disc collection is Unkle-heavy with exclusive edits of Unkle tracks plus Unkle remixes of Lana Del Rey, Noel Gallagher, London Grammar, and Jagwar Ma, among others. Unkle signatures—hollow tones, spooky vibes, and magnetic rhythms—flow smoothly. This custom compilation doesn’t sacrifice cohesion for diversity, yet it avoids retreads and predictability. A definite collector’s item.

Listen to a minimix of the compilation via Global Underground’s SoundCloud.
