Their faultless back catalogue boasts a dominance of vinyl releases on the likes of Visionquest, Pressure Traxx, Jesus Loved You Drumma, NG Trax and Bodyparts, and continues to draw support from industry genii such as Ricardo Villalobos, Rhadoo, Pedro, Raresh [a:rpia:r], Dubfire, Barac, Luciano, Ryan Crosson and Valentino Kanzyani, to name but a few.
Having both experienced an eclectic musical upbringing, the pair first met in 2009 and soon realized that they also shared comparable influences from Hip-‐‑Hop to Breakbeat and Dubstep. They originally found their way into electronic music through listening to online radio, before the proliferation of exceptional music emanating from the Romanian underground scene over the past decade, soon lured the duo out to the city’s growing array of underground parties; most notably the legendary venue Studio Martin, where Eddy and Levii further refined their taste for the acute underground Romanian sound.
Such exposure was also the main catalyst behind the duo’s ignited interest in DJing. This, in turn, leads to the logical decision to begin producing in 2011, and so Vinyl Speed Adjust was born and the unassuming pair have been meticulously honing their production skills ever since. Their hard work and endeavors in the studio are surely paying off, with the quality of their sound for all to hear in everything which they seamlessly compose.
As demonstrated by their choice of pseudonym, the pair are vinyl aficionados, with both of their labels pushing out nothing short of sheer quality underground wax. Their Crystal Structures imprint focuses more on old school caliber artists, with releases to date featuring the likes of Mark Ambrose, Aubrey, Thor, Exos, C-‐‑ Rock/ Dubstar and Anonym.
Their second imprint, self-‐‑titled as VSA Records, debuted in late 2015, and has recently enjoyed its fourth release. Having initially been established as a means of showcasing a transient medley of their own experimental soundscapes, the label has begun welcoming some finely curated guest artists for the subsequent releases, each showcasing their respective imaginative sound.
On the gigs front, February 2018 saw the guys embark on a 12-‐‑show tour across North America and Mexico, with standout appearances at Flash, Washington DC, Dialogue, LA, Electric Pickle, Miami and TBA Brooklyn, NYC, to name but a few.
Their touring schedule continued to reach new heights this year, including a memorable debut in Australia, having been invited to headline the infamous S.A.S.H.’s 7th birthday in Sydney back in April. This summer their attention turned to South America, where they toured 7 cities in 3 different countries across the continent (Brazil, Argentina & Colombia), including a show at the legendary D-‐‑Edge in Sao Paulo. Debuts at Concrete in Paris as well as residencies at The Block in Tel Aviv and Jack Club in Amsterdam have also contributed to their most prosperous gig calendar to date.
Despite the hectic tour schedule, their efforts in the studio haven’t slowed this year. 2018 has seen them release a third EP on one of Detroit’s finest labels ‘Visionquest’, delivering 4 sterling original tracks for no.72 in the VQ catalogue. This followed their ‘Reflections EP’ which dropped in March on their own label VSA Records. A remix for Israeli Stephan Bazbaz on his No Waves imprint, a two track original EP on animae, the label of Fabrizio Sala, the resident at Goa Club in Rome and a further remix for Herr, the Catalonian co-‐‑founder of ‘Yakazi Records’, add to an already impressive discography which now comprises of 24 abiding records.
Through their consummate work ethic and refreshing productions, the duo has unsurprisingly caught the ear of some of the industry’s leading and most illustrious figures, and with every one of their releases fast becoming a commodity for some of the finest A&R tastemakers on the circuit, Vinyl Speed Adjust are unquestionably two of Romania’s most inventive and promising talents.
