Hardest working man in show business? Trouper? Tireless? The John Coltrane of hip hop. However you want to put it, be sure of one thing, when DJ Vadim first heard the phrase "Don’t sleep” he obviously took it literally.
Founder of the label Jazz Fudge(1994), A&R, record collector, and in-house producer of Latin Grammy nominees,7 Notas 7 Colorez/ mucho muchacho, Vadim has certainly been keeping himself busy. And that’s before we even mention his DJing which has seen him tour, all over the world with the likes of Atmosphere, PE, Ghostface killah, Method Man, Redman, STS9, Kraftwerk,Fat Freddys Drop, Roni SIze... Playing at some of the worlds biggest most prestigious festivals like Glastonbury, Fuji rock , Roskilde, Exit, Big Chill, Burning Man..... Add to this his countless remixes from the like of Stevie Wonder, Al Green. Prince, The Cure, DJ Krush, Morcheeba, Talib Kweli, Gus Gus... and mix cd’s - ‘architects of the great’(97),‘lettuce proppelled rockets’(05), ‘ live in brooklyn’(07). Though maybe described by some as an ‘underground artist’, Vadim has caught the attention of the corporate world too, producing music for Absolut vodka, Nokia, Sin city and MTV....
To describe the man as an musicholic almost seems to sell him short.
DJ Vadim and his latest LP - U cant lurn imaginashun (BBE) smashed it hard in 2009 , but fresh for 2010 he will also present his new work - The Electric. The super group he has founded alongside Pugs Atoms (Chicagos finest upcoming mc), UK sultry soulstress Sabira Jade and English Jamaican keyboard wizard Lil Ste. Expect dexterous hand tricknology, defying feats of gravity and modern soul music taken to the next level - soul crack! a dirty mix of the classic ish , music from the heart whether its sung or rapped or spoken... . its just got to have big drums, big bass, be dirty and from the heart. 2009 was the year of Imaginashun...The Electric will be the soundtrack of 2010!
