Napolian Announces Debut LP for Software, Shares New Video

LA producer Napolian (a.k.a. Ian Evans) first surfaced on XLR8R back in 2011, and we've enjoyed watching his gradual ascent over the past few years. Next month, he'll be taking his biggest leap yet when he releases his debut full-length via the Oneohtrix Point Never-curated Software label. Evans initially hooked up with Software for his 2012 EP, Rejoice, and since then, he's done production work for the likes of Kelela and A$AP Ferg, amongst other things. All the while though, Napolian has been working on this debut LP, which is described as a "clandestine labor of love" that was made over the course of two years. Entitled Incursio, the 14-track effort is said to primarily be an instrumental beats record, one with "no break record samples, no dust, no crates. No jazz rust, no deconstruction." The LP will be released on May 24, but Napolian has already shared its first video, for the track "DARPA." The intense clip nicely combines the song's neon bombast with images of robots and military might, and can be seen below, along with Incursio's artwork and complete tracklist.
