Since the spring of 2009, Sava has been collaborating with the Romanian electronic music singer Raluka in order to record some new tracks. Their single "September" has received favorable reactions from both the public and press. In the wake of this success, the two continued their collaboration and after "a few days of producing" a new song was released in Romania. Called "I Like (The Trumpet)", the record was compiled in the studio Rappin On, owned by singer Connect-R, who also recorded some background vocals on the song; the track dominated the speciality rankings in Romania, topping the national chart for eleven consecutive editions in 2010.
DJ Sava's greatest hit to date
"I Like (The Trumpet)" (2010)
This up-tempo record was largely influenced by electro dance music and its instrumental line is dominated by the use of a trumpet.
During the same year, DJ Sava continued his promotional campaign in Romania, supporting a series of concerts in some of the best known clubs; simultaneously, the musician opened a concert for Tiësto in Chişinău. In late 2010 DJ Sava released a new single in collaboration with Raluka and Connect-R, called "Love You". The track received positive reviews upon its release and peaked at number six in the Romanian Radio Airplay Chart.

Direcția 5 is a Romanian music band, founded in 1991. Over the years, this band used different genres of music: alternative rock, rock ballad, electronic-rock, pop-rock, instrumental, sometimes club-house (as for example, the song "Unde ești"/ “Where are you?”)... This band was founded by Marian Ionescu in 1991 (bass guitar, piano, composer), Dragoș Bădoi (voice), Cătălin Onoiu (keyboard), Florin Ionescu (drums, voice), Răzvan Mirică (guitar, voice), Vlaicu Giurgea (guitar).
In a very short time, this band recorded their debut album called "La vulturul de mare cu peștele în ghiare"...(At the sea eagle, holding captured fish) In 1992, the soloist Dragoș Bădoi was replaced for a short while by Cristian Roman (at present the leader of the band The Teachers Orchestra), followed by Toni Șeicărescu (at present singing for Krypton), with whom they recorded the album "Seducție" (“Seduction”). This album contained seven songs and was greatly appreciated by the public. Some of the songs, such as Seducție, Bogdan Barosanu, Texaco, Street fighting boys, Scufița roșie, Vrăjitoarea, became great hits at that time. During their concerts, the band gained a lot of fans. At the end of 1993, on the 17th of December, the Direcția 5 Orchestra performed on the stage of the Theater “Ion Creangă” within a very original show for those days: baking vocals, playing IN DI ANKA on a sitar, the presence of Andre Ateka. The concert took place behind closed doors. The band used this audio material later in order to record a Live material called “IN DI ANKA live”. In 1994, the band launched the album "Pantofi de lac" (Lack shoes) and they also collaborated with Loredana Groza for her album "Atitudine" (Attitude). The album was launched on the 8th of April 1994 at the music store in Bucharest, in the presence of a numerous public, who caused a traffic jam on the Boulevard «Calea Victoriei”. In May 1994, with the help and involvement of Radio Contact and Maria Popescu (thanks Maria!)- the present wife of Iulian Vrabete from Holograf, the first official fan club for a Romanian artist or band was created. The members of the band met each Saturday in the Herăstrău Park, at the entrance from the Arch of Trumph.
In 1995, the guitarist Vlaicu Giurgea and Toni Șeicărescu left the band, the last one being replaced by Gabi Nicolau (Krypton). The band performed at the festival “The Golden Stag” in September. In 1996, there were some fights within the band, Marian Ionescu being accused by Răzvan Mirică, Florin Ionescu and Cătălin Onoiu that he is only interested in his own career, the rest of the band considering themselves to be the real band Direcția 5. It seems that Loredana Groza caused the rupture of the band Direcția 5. During one year, there were two bands called Direcția 5.
Direcția V: Florin Ionescu (drums, voice), Răzvan Mirică (solo guitar, voice, composer), Cătălin Onoiu (keyboard), Mircea Preda "Burete" (bass) and Răzvan Fodor (soloist). In 1997, this new band recorded the album « Der Genius » . This album contained 7 songs in English, composed by Răzvan Mirică and Florin Ionescu. Attention! This is the first album recorded by a Romanian rock band in collaboration with a philharmonic orchestra (George Enescu!) as well as in collaboration with a string quartet!
In order to avoid further confusion related to the existence of two bands with the same name, Florin Ionescu (drums, voice), Răzvan Mirică (solo guitar, voice, composer), Bobby Stoica (keyboard)- at present at Voltaj, Mircea Preda "Sponge" (bass) and Toni Șeicărescu (voice) – who came back from the Netherlands after many years, tried to launch a new project called “the New Rome”. Unfortunately, this project was not that successful and there was no new album. During a television program of the national television channel, the band sang two promission songs: Strada mea (My street) and Liber (Free).
Loredana & Direcția 5: Marian Ionescu (bass, keyboards, composer), Nicu Damalan (solo guitar, ex-Esperando, Krypton), Emanuel "Fisa" Gheorghe (keyboards, ex-Roșu și Negru, Voltaj '88, later Feedback, Camioane-n mulțime) and Marius Keseri (drums, ex-Quartz, Voltaj, Vali Sterian & Compania de sunet, Metrock, Voltaj '88)
After several years, Direcția V split in 1998 and only one of the two bands left: Direcția 5 with Marian Ionescu, Nicu Damalan, Marius Keseri and Cristi Enache. They recorded the album “Superstar” in 1999.
