Where are you currently based and what is the music scene like there?
We live in Florence, we have our studios and our families here in Italy. Music scene here is pretty hot, we love to play in Italy!
We both starts at 15 years old playing vinyls, drum machines and samplers at some hot parties in our cities at the end of 80s.
What’s been happening recently?
We had a great end of 2019 / beginning of 2020 djing between Europe, Usa and Asia and releasing music on Defected, Downtown Underground and 8Bit.
What influenced the sound and songwriting for your new EP?
We love to mix House and Techno sometimes and we are always influenced by the old school scenes creating a new Supernova sound. That’s what we like mostly.
How did you go about writing the music?
Sometimes we start from a groove that we like, sometimes we work around an acappella or a sample and sometimes we have an idea in mind, like a direction or a mod we want to go.
Where and when did you record/produce and who with? How did you approach the recording/production process? What programs/equipment did you use?
We produced this in our recording studio in Florence. We brought here the vocalist Fay aka Medusa from London and we did a couple of days of recording vocal sessions. We recorded the vocals on some reference beats, not the track as it’s now. After a few days we did start working on this raw house beat with a techno feeling and we created the string pattern with an old school feeling. We were loving how the track was building up but we felt it was missing something. We went through the vocals recorded with Fay and felt that that the spoken one was perfect for the track. We re arranged the vocal over the track and at the end we were very happy. We produced on Ableton Live as daw, Kontakt to write the strings pattern and OB-6 for synths.
What did you find most challenging and rewarding during the creation on the EP? Any upcoming gigs/tours?
We wanted to create a raw beat with a techno attitude but keeping the house feeling and merge them with a classical string pattern. Unfortunately in this moment after the COVID-19 crisis all the gigs we had planned have been cancelled..
If so, where are you headed and when? What can we expect from your live show?
We hope to reschedule soon gigs we had planned in London, Italy and South America for Aprile and May.
Our live shows are always a surprise, we love to drive around the music and to see what the crowd need from us. It’s like a mix between a dj set and a live set.
Who are you listening to at the moment?
Funk, Jazz and Trap music.
What do you like to do away from music?
Reading, sports and to stay with our families.
What’s planned for 2020?
We will be really focus on new Supernova music this year, we are preparing a lot of stuff for some hot labels we love and of course for Lapsus Music, Downtown Underground and Blackboard which are our labels.
We are also planning to release a new album on 2020 or maybe 2021, will see.
Favourite food and place to hangout?
We love to have special dinner with our crew, it’s a perfect place to hangout before the party. We love our Tuscan traditional food and to try food from other countries when we travel.
