Last month Italians Do It Better released the follow up to After Dark, After Dark 2, with many familiar faces cropping up. Today, Johnny Jewel (of Glass Candy and Chromatics) has offered the compilation in its entirety to download via his Soundcloud. Though it may not be as surprising as the original, there are quite a few gems and unreleased tracks sprinkled in the compilation. For anyone looking for easy-going and slightly nostalgic vibes this is definitely worth a listen.
In 2007 Italians Do It Better compiled After Dark, a compilation of unabashed Italo-disco. Its glittering synths and naivety made it an era defining package while introducing many to the sounds of Chromatics, Glass Candy, and Professor Genius. Since then the label has gone on to release a staggering amount of albums including full lengths from Chromatics, Glass Candy, Mike Simonetti and Desire. After Dark 2 is available to stream and download, below.
