Artist: Supernova - Title: Live In Tulum EP - Label: Stereo Productions

Supernova is a hard hitting main room techno duo from Italy. They are DJs as well as musicians, producers and remixers who were born Nencioni and Giacomo. As well as releasing for King Street Sounds and Defected they now turn up on Stereo Productions, another long running label that really leads from the front.

What this pair comes up with in turn are two truly powerful tracks. Always Changing is first and is a widescreen, dubbed out roller with prickly synth riffs rubbing up next to smeared chords and thundering kicks. It is dancing music that has run force in the way it drives on and cannot be ignored as a result.

On the flip you will find the equally excellent Avenida 146. This one is similar but more explosive and expressive in melodic terms. Pixelated keys explode up top as synth patterns and ballots of white noise rumble below. Again all-consuming and bleakly futuristic, it is heavyweight house and techno music for clubbers who really know their stuff.
