Livio & Roby – Atipic Lab 011 [AtipicLab]
Priku‘s minimal techno laboratory AtipicLab presents its eleventh vinyl-only instalment with the well-known Romanian duo Livio & Roby being the ones behind the production this time. The wax features two steady-paced minimalistic cuts designed with both groovy and deep nuances, adding even more flavour to the established series which so far published materials from artists like Arapu, Faster, Floog, Cosmjn, Vlad Arapasu, VincentIulian, Aparte & Dan Blatov, Direkt and Lizz.
With releases on labels like Desolat, Memoria Recordings, Vakant, The Rabbit Hole, Drumma, Uvar, Mulen and Rawax, Livio & Roby have been a constant presence in both local and international scenes for almost ten years now. Their style has evolved throughout time and the latest productions bring forward a mature electronic sound that captures vivid soundscapes, carefully crafted rhythms and astonishing narratives. Below you can enjoy the full-length Dub version of “Hajime Mashite” from their release on Tier Records, an independent imprint founded by the two artists back in 2018:
Atipic Lab 011 sure packs the good vibes, making this EP another great addition to the imprint’s catalogue as well as to the duo’s extended discographic history. Let’s dive in the wax and take a closer look at the tracks:
Side A is reserved for “Reki”, a swinging minimal take flavoured with a solid wobbling bassline, prominent drumming patterns, spiralling background atmospheres and subtle, warm piano notes. The spacious breakdowns bring the delayed elements into focus while the other layers elegantly introduce one another, forming various structures while the record spins.
Side B features “Re Viens”, a deeper piece focused on reverberating vocal cuts, bright patterns and effects, as well as immersive arrangements that form an organic story, perfect for laid-back selections. Another collectable 12″ right here coming from a renowned Romanian venture!
