DT678 – Supernova
Supernova are Emiliano Nencioni and Giacomo Godi; an Italian DJ and production duo that have over the last decade made the transition from rising stars to established international talent, perhaps best known for their acclaimed and much-discussed collaboration with Kevin Saunderson on 2010’s ‘Beat Me Back’. They achieved their first notable success in 2007 when Sony BMG released their debut album ‘Downtown Underground, which included collaborations from the likes of GrandMaster and Melle Mel). Known for their distinctive DJ style their current set-up comprises live instruments, decks and Ableton to create an ever-evolving musical experience.
House giant Defected Records has released a number of the duo’s productions including remixes of seminal records ‘Can You Feel It’ and ‘Strings of Life’ as well as the more recent Cassandra and The Light Goes On EPs. Other notable releases outside of the Defected stable include acclaimed remixes for Kerri Chandler on Bar A Thym and Hallelujah for King Street Sounds as well as their top-charted remix on Jakatta’s American Dream and highly respected Electronic Love EP on their own Lapsus Music.
They return to Defected Records with ‘Can’t Stand It’ featuring Marley Monroe, which is out now and you can listen on Spotify, above.
“Italian DJ and production duo Supernova sustain their position as house authorities with their latest release, ‘Can’t Stand It’ featuring Los Angeles vocalist Marley Monroe. The pair, who together founded Lapsus Music, have demonstrated a breadth of influences across their impressive catalogue, ranging from Chicago house and acid right through to hip-hop, funk and jazz. This hotly anticipated return to Defected after a five-year hiatus does not disappoint, as the duo combine Munroe’s soulful vocal stabs with tight drums and a rolling bassline to produce a record you can’t help but groove to.” – Defected
