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 and are now recognised as artists and performers of enviable stature.
Both Emiliano and Giacomo are classically trained musicians, something they believe has set their approach to electronic music apart from many of their peers, granting them the technical abilities and theoretical know-how to produce the music they want without restriction.
Taking their lead from the music of their youth – everything from Chicago house, acid house, hip-hop, funk and acid jazz – 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).
In 2009 they started their own label Lapsus Music that is now considered one of the most interesting project inside the underground independent labels world scene with support from many big names and showcases across the world and now they have added 2 more new labels to their company: Downtown Underground and Blackboard.
Their probably biggest hit comes in 2010 with “Beat Me Back” the collaboration with Detroit techno master Kevin Saunderson. Following this and many other big releases, the duo have been asked to remix some of the biggest classics of the House Music such as Frankie Knuckles “The Whistle Song”, Kerri Chandler “Bar A Thym”, Jakatta “American Dream” and Romanthony “What Price Love” just to name a few.
One of the more significant relationships of recent years has been Supernova’s continuing affiliation with house giant Defected Records. Defected 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 three Eps. 2013 marks the 10th anniversary of Supernova and the duo is asked to mix one third of the long-running and acclaimed Defected In The House Miami compilation series.
The Italian duo has recently released tracks on Get Physical Music, 8Bit, Mother Recordings, Elrow Music, Kling Klong, Stereo Productions, Toolroom, King Street Sounds and Nervous Records just to name a few..
“We believe in this rule: ‘work hard, hard, hard with a smile on your face always trying to do something better than the day before’. Following this rule has made us growing up step by step overcoming the difficult moments and getting the best possible results”.
For Supernova, music is their life, their language and a huge part of their relationship with others people. “We believe that we have a lot to say in terms of music and that our journey is just at the beginning. The only way to complete this journey is to do a lot of good music; This is our mission!”
