Patience and groove with one of Romania's top duos.
How do you nail a back-to-back DJ set? Ask Robert Precup and Silviu Sandu, who have been playing together most weekends for the past ten years. As Livio & Roby, the duo have released popular tech house and minimal on labels such as Vakant, Desolat and Cécille, specialising in a deep and detailed sound suited to late-hour dance floors. They draw from a similar aesthetic in their DJ sets, which is where their chemistry is best showcased. Rolling and well-paced, their appearances together demonstrate a special understanding of patience and steady groove, which is all the more impressive when there are two people choosing the tracks.
