Fr 29 March: Dj Vadim – DSD Soundsystem
March 29 @ 22:00 - March 30 @ 02:00€10
Russian born and London residing, DJ Vadim has built a reputation as one of the world’s top independent producers; travelling the globe, performing and collaborating with established and developing talents that cross continents, languages and cultures. Dubbed as the “John Coltrane of hip hop”, Vadim has become well respected as an innovator in a number of areas during his career, “a veteran presence in the DJ community as well as one of the foremost producers in too many communities to count, Vadim is never running out of ideas” (URB Magazine). He has been described as “one of the few artists creating genuinely new work in the hip hop field” and an artist “who cannot be ignored”.
“Known for mad skillz, complete versatility and a winning smile, he is a true mixologist and is cutting edge across hip hop, soul, funk, grime, reggae, dub, and bass. We’ve been banging his mix albums since the mid 90’s. The guy is a legend”
15 solo albums, 5 mix CD’s, 7 group albums, countless mix CD’s and remixes to date… you can be sure of one thing, when Vadim first heard the phrase “Don’t sleep”, he obviously took it literally!. It would be easy to sit back and rest on his laurels, but one look at Vadim’s discography will show you that he is an innovator who revels in challenges, living on the frontline; creating beats of the future well before they have even been made into genres.
With performances at some of the world’s most prestigious events from Sonar, Glastonbury, Big Chill, V fest, Fuji Rock, Roskilde, Exit, Vinarock, Notting Hill Carnival….to describe the man as an internationalist almost seems to sell him short.
