Barcelona-based outfit Drumma Records will celebrate 4 years in business with the latest EP from Bucharest duo Livio & Roby, due out in June. The four-track Here and There EP finds the Romanian pair on a roll, with their hardware-based collaboration with George G, Premiesku, garnering quite a lot of attention of late.

"Bis Aid" kicks off the EP with a tight and groovy low-end, rolling metalic synths, and sharp percussion, with a highly detailed, polyrhythmic feel to it. The track chugs along building tension before "Here and There" drops with its thumping kick and rubbery bassline. From there, the minimalistic "Sambata" rolls out faint piano chirps and subtle, chopped vocals atop a highly swung rhythm. "Tul Astia" rounds things out with a machine-gun-like conga roll, skittering percussion clicks, and barely there chords.

Here and There will be released on June 20 via Drumma Records, with "Bis Aid" and "Sambata" streaming in full via the player below.
