Peter Napoli: The Beach Party
You may have heard Peter Napoli at one of his traveling BRÜT parties (NY, LA, SF and Chicago), where his pulsating beat reigns over packed dance floors and throngs of young men in gear. While this nightlife attraction has been a mainstay for years, Peter’s love of music actually began far earlier, growing up in a family of musicians in the boroughs of New York City.
Rhythm was a constant in the Napoli household. Peter’s dad is a well-known drummer and there was always a groove happening at home. That early exposure to the relationship between kick-drumming and ass-shaking propelled Peter to find a career in music beginning in Mexico City in 2009. Back home in NYC, the young firebrand honed his skills at Santos Party House, which escalated him to opportunities in Europe, North and South America.
As his sound evolved, Peter found inspiration in Deep House and Techno, but also the classic basslines of Frankie Knuckles and David Cole. This diversity is on display at his legendary Burning Man sets, and now at Voyage.
In its latest iteration, Napoli’s sound is an evolution from the stagnant circuit scene of decades past, to a future built on an array of percussion and an inclusive cast of talent and performers. Peter’s latest party brand, Voyage, is a newcomer to the scene. Its rhythm is the journey; a new venture for aficionados of House and Techno, and the Electronic music community.
