Brooklyn-based indie-dance duo Supertaste’s mission is to bring you that warm feeling of walking to your favorite bodega after a night of dancing.
The pair broke onto the scene last summer with their debut EP Breakup Disco, and since then, the EP has amassed nearly 200k Spotify plays along with support from artists like Washed Out, The Knocks, and Goldroom.
When the pandemic hit, the boys decided that when all else fails, head into the woods to make a disco record. Supertaste packed up their Brooklyn recording studio and road tripped to a cabin in Bristol, Tennessee, to produce their sophomore EP Super Classic – think ‘Bon Iver, but make it disco.’ They cleared out the cabin’s living room furniture and recreated Supertaste studios in the mountains, with a view out over South Holston Lake and the Cherokee National Forest.
Time in solitude surrounded by their spread of synths, guitars, and studio canine companion Wilson, lead to the Super Classic EP. Last year left people feeling lonely, secluded, and pulled in a million different directions; the Super Classic EP is Supertaste’s ode to finding happiness in the classics and simple moments. A drive with your best friend down the highway, a kiss with a stranger outside a bar under the street light, a post-club dollar slice with grease dripping all over a paper plate. Finding earnest connection and a community within the music we know and love.
As opposed to the typical electronic music projects that offer overly-curated images, huge production budgets, and overzealous personalities hiding behind masks, Supertaste are the authentic New York boys you can bring home to mom.
To share their favourite sounds in house music, Supertaste take over this week’s “Mix Of The Week”. Tune in!
