The story of Relativ starts at a supermarket in Utrecht, Holland. It was here where the former Buurman & Buurman duo, Luiz and Tim met. Their mutual love for electronic music is what brought them together and what has kept them together ever since. The two hit it off like a house on fire and decided to form a DJ-duo.
From then on, not only would they regularly play at clubs like Basis Utrecht and Chicago Social Club in Amsterdam, they were also already producing their own tracks. Their first release ‘1970’, which came out in May 2014 on Armada Music, was an instant Soundcloud hit. This track opened up doors for the duo, which allow them to receive residencies at both Verknipt and Nachtcollege.
The sound of Relativ has developed into a timeless sound, DJ-wise as well as production-wise. As for productions, their first track was released by Max Chapman’s label Resonance Records at the start of September 2017. After that the duo released several tracks and EPs on labels like MadTech Records, Audio Rehab and NastyFunk Records to name a few. They have played at several big native events, festivals and clubs such as LOVELAND, Verknipt, STRAF_WERK, FLOW, Nachtcollege, Mystic Garden, Valhalla and Shelter.
Playing together means to be connected and it is all about balancing each other. Something Luiz and Tim understand fully. They both have their own specialties, which results in the perfect harmony in their sets. Both on- as off-stage the modest, social and pleasant vibe of the two, combined with their love for making music and DJ-ing has gotten Relativ to the point where they are now. But this is just the start, as there is much more pleasure and love yet to come from this talented duo.
