Romanov is a electro and sound engineer who was born in Russia and raised in Germany, who now calls Graz, Austria his home. He’s been in the music game since he was a teen, starting out as a member of various bands and producing hip-hop beats. At the ripe age of 15, he built his own synthesizer from a Moog DIY kit and has been hooked on electronic music ever since.
When he was just 18, Romanov became a resident DJ at the infamous Airport club in Würzburg, and after moving to Stuttgart, he continued being resident in the clubs Zapata and Keller Klub. He was also heavily involved in the underground scene, regularly collaborating with the Dizztorted Kidz crew, who were behind the Stuttgarts Waggons and Contain’t projects. During this time, Romanov produced many tracks that started out with French house and electro influences, and later evolved into tech-house and minimal sounds.
Nowadays, Romanov is all about performing live sets without using a laptop, and his focus is on using analog synthesizers, drum machines, and sequencers. His sound is a combination of minimal, tech, electro, and breaks.
But that’s not all – Romanov is also a trailblazer in the world of 3D sound and built the first mobile Geodesic 3D sound dome. He’s taken this baby on tour to various festivals and absolutely blew the audience’s minds with his unique soundscapes.
When Romanov hits the stage, his live sets are completely improvised and consist solely of analog synthesizers and drum machines. With his years of experience as a DJ and band member, he’s got the skills to read the crowd and give them exactly what they want. He’s inspired by the environment and the energy of the guests, and uses that to create a one-of-a-kind musical experience every time. His live sets are like an author filling a blank page with life word by word, telling a story. The goal is always to get the crowd moving and create an unforgettable musical experience.
