Viva Music artists Livio & Roby are two Romanian producers and DJs which met in 2004 and joined forces to become production partners. They formed a very strong connection in their musical taste and style. It didn’t take that long when they made their first track together, "Bitter Sweet" [Solar Recordings], which was heavily supported by many respected DJs.
With a great understanding of what rocks a dance floor and exceptional production skills they were soon making and remixing tracks on a regular basis. Steve Lawler sat up and took note of these two talented producers. With tracks and remixes appearing on Lawler’s "Lights out 3" (Global Underground) and "Viva" compilation albums on a regular basis, Livio & Roby were starting to get the exposure they really needed.
After launching tracks like „Ananda” and „Drumatik”, Livio & Roby became Viva Music artists, being heavily supported by Steve Lawler. These two guys have made their own sound, deep & dirty tech house is the best way to explain their vibe. Livio & Roby now have a host of remixes behind them: Steve Lawler, Remo, Erphun, Sean Miller, Kamishake, Jimmy Hill, Chuck Lepley, George G, to name just a few.
Their “Monochrome” project, which also includes George G, brought the band both global prizes at the Heineken Music Thirst Studio Global Session competition! Surprisingly, when Gabriel & Dresden announced the awards, Livio & Roby feat. George G found out they got the both prices: The Global Winners and The People’s Choice Award.
Being the Romanian winners of the local competition in 2006, 2007 got them in Las Vegas to represent their country and, of course, South Eastern Europe. Magazines like DJ Mag and Juice described their sets at Tao Beach and Tao Club as "highlights of the weekend". By the end of 2007 they saw themselfs "traped" in the studio producing tracks for their first album called Monochrome - "Children of House FWD 01" [Ido Music] which was celebrated in Romania with an amazing album launch party at Studio Martin and will soon be available worldwide. Their work finally pays off! This year will be the year for Livio & Roby to make a huge name for themselves on the underground music scene.
