Supernova, IT (Defected, Noir, Lapsus)
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. Supernova have played at some of the most established venues and festivals on the planet, including ElRow (Barcelona), Monegros Desert Festival, Ministry Of Sound (London), Cavo Paradiso (Mykonos), Privilege (Ibiza), Kazantip Festival (Ukraine), Tenax and Magazzini Generali (Italy), Space (Miami) and many many more.
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.
Their first major project of 2013 also comes from the Defected stable as they mix one third of the long-running and acclaimed Miami compilation series, along with fellow Italians Flashmob and Pirupa. This will be preceded by another EP on the label entitled The World is Crazy, a two-track EP which flirts with darker, deeper sounds while retaining their trademark dancefloor grooves and hooks.
Looking ahead, 2013/2014 marks the 10th anniversary of Supernova and perhaps the busiest year yet for the duo, which will include their third (as yet unsigned) studio album, as well as a ‘Best of Supernova’ compilation to be released on their own Lapsus Music

Keith Kraft grew up in south FL and has been a music enthusiast since he was a young child earning his first chin scar from spinning out dancing to Michael Jackson on his parents tile floor at the age 4. That was only the beginning of a passion that would only turn into his life. A classically trained musician, he took on a great interest in playing brass instruments at a young age and specialized in the trumpet until his other passion(stunt BMX) got in the way and after an accident his nerves in his lip were severed leaving them damaged and unable to produce notes through a brass mouthpiece.
Frustrated he took a break from playing instruments and focused his energy on school where he studied Aerospace engineering, Music Theory, and psychology. Years later he became well known in the South FL club scene for hosting several parties in Fort Lauderdale and Miami.
After moving to San Francisco at age 27 and becoming heavily involved in the house music scene he took on an interest in DJ’ing. He started off in his downtown apartment with two techniques 1200’s and an Allen & Heath mixer and after 8 months with help from mentors(Derek Bobus, Nikita, and Sharon Buck) Keith began playing out at nightclubs. A few months later he landed a gig opening for Jamie Jones at Vessel which gave him the confidence to push it even further.
He has been resident for parties such as “Bad Habits @ Monroe” and “Housepitality @ Icon” in SF and now has began producing his own events “SEX” and “Pressure @ Monroe” with Nikita.
Keith is know for his deep house, tech house, and techno music and always brings it with fresh new tracks.
Performing alongside some of the world’s top electronic music artists, Moby, Max Cooper, Super Flu, Tube & Berger and Martin Buttich, Always on the deep melodic tip, he continues to connect to listeners with his heavily influenced sounds of House & Techno. He draws his inspiration from the growing number of electronic music listeners around the world.
