Title: The Joy EP
Record Label: Mother Recordings
Italian duo, Giacomo Godi and Emiliano Nencioni, better known as SUPERNOVA, debut their first MOTHER RECORDINGS release with their latest two-tracker EP, ‘The Joy’.
Kicking off with their headline track, ‘The Joy’ pits together a hard-hitting house beat and walking bassline against a set of dark warbling synth sprays. Here, the duo truly show off their impressive work with the synthesizer, juxtaposing soulful acapella gospel licks with a bundle of morphing synth lines that effortlessly rumble and groan throughout.
Fat kicks, trashy hi’s and spacey synths open up ‘Reflections’, lighting up the dancefloor from the very start. Here, Supernova step it up a notch, flipping their dark range of warbling synth lines into a set of warm and dreamy funk pads that endlessly purr underneath a sturdy bassline. A range of elusive vocal howls and cheeky funk melody licks polish the track off around the edges, intensifying in all the right places to create some satisfying releases.
