Still only in his early 20's, UK based DJ and producer wAFF has an undeniabletalent that far exceeds his years. His musical passion and mind-boggling affinity with computer production software, sees him surgically attached to hislaptop 90% of his waking hours, with the other 10% being spent delving into the music back catalogues of his hero's and influences Loco Dice, Tania Vulcano, Martin Buttrich, Luciano and Marco Carola.

Co-founder of long established Northern clubnight Koala, wAFF has played host to DJs the likes of Matt Tolfrey, Yaya, Glimpse, Subb-an, Nico Lahs and Jordan Peak in his mission to bring quality techno and house music to his native East Yorkshire. He has also seen his Koala venture take off in Ibiza with a two season run of hugely successful boat parties. Not only resident at his own night, wAFF has spent years playing for fellow hometown promoters Different Language as one half of Sona Sound with friend and co-collaborator Pete Batty, a venture that has seen him share deckspace with DJs the likes of Nick Curly, Simon Baker, Hobo, Audiojack, Sebo K, to name a few.

With a varied and progressive DJing career under his belt, it's wAFF's thriving back catalogue of techno and deep house productions that will see his name shoot to the forefront of the electronic music scene in 2012. Kicking things off aged seventeen on the production programme Fruity Loops, his technical ability progressed at speed before he progressed onto Ableton, a step which has much deepened the intensity and professional flair of his recent work and resulted in his first ever EP being signed to the globally revered and respected label Hot Creations

Amid the country’s burgeoning electronic music scene, Eddy and Levii are fast becoming recognised as two of Romania’s finest future exports. Hailing from the capital Bucharest, their innovative sound epitomizes the phrase “let the music do the talking”, and can best be described as experimental, percussive and innately intelligent.

Their faultless back catalogue boasts a dominance of vinyl releases on the likes of Pressure Traxx, Gilesku Records, Colours in Music, Crystal Structures and Bodyparts, and continues to draw support from industry greats such as Ricardo Villalobos, Rhadoo and Raresh [a:rpia:r], Valentino Kanzyani and Sascha Dive.

Having both experienced an eclectic musical upbringing, the pair first met in 2009 and soon realised 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 underground sound.

Such exposure was also the main catalyst behind the duo’s ignited interest in DJing. This in turn lead to the logical decision to begin producing in 2011, and so Vinyl Speed Adjust was born and the duo have been meticulously honing their production skills ever since. Their hard work and endeavours in the studio are now finally paying dividends, 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 quality underground wax. Their Crystal Structures imprint focuses more on old school quality artists, with releases so far featuring the likes of Mark Ambrose, Aubrey, Thor, Exos, C-Rock/ Dubstar, Anonym. In contrast, their second imprint, self-titled as Vinyl Speed Adjust Records, is set to debut in September with an exciting schedule of releases planned from the boys themselves, complimented with a selection of new era artists, showcasing innovative sounds..

Through their consummate work ethic and state-of-the-art productions, the duo have unsurprisingly caught the ear of some of the industry’s leading and most illustrious figures, making Vinyl Speed Adjust unquestionably two of the Romania's most innovative and promising talents.
