Pioneer of electro hacking, prophet of abstract hip-hop, Vadim the soviet and his kamarads have only two hands, but it is not stupid to think that they have three or more!
On stage, his music gets closer to a live performance thanks to turntablism, the art born of hip-hop where platinum is treated more like an instrument in itself than as a simple way to generate loops, a sort of modern soul with true Russian taste. Boss of the Jazz Fudge label, Dj Vadim remains faithful to Ninja Tune, the important structure created by the Cold Cut group.
Today, his music takes more and more body, around the voices he invites, the mixture Vadim is anything but a predictable recipe. Urban and experimental Vadim's hip hop mixes tablas, djembas, Japanese flutes, Brazilian guitars, spoken word, with obscure scratch sounds melted in brief jungle appearances for an unexpected and special result.
A third volume of his series DUBCATCHER to be released on 21.09 in which Dj Vadim is even more precise, more experimental (perhaps?) And offers us the opportunity to discover as usual new vocal talents!
