About DJ Vadim
What happens if you cross a Brazilian carnival spirit with a reggae soundsystem and Brooklyn New York with a tour schedule that even dwarfs British Airways flight plan? The Sound Catcher is born. DJ Vadim, the John Coltrane of Hip Hop has been a very busy bee of late. DJ’g and touring his group ONE SELF, remixing Fat Freddys Drop, Gangstarr, Ojos de Brujo, Alice Russell…., re editing Prince, Al Green, Ann Peebles ….and now delivering his 5th and latest DJ Vadim LP (debut for BBE) which he considers as being ‘by far my most concise, precise and best work to date. Not content with working harder than all 7 dwarfs put together, he transplanted him self and his ‘timber yard studio’ to Brooklyn New York in early 2006 where most of the latest LP was written and produced. All work and no play can be a very dull indeed yet The Sound Catcher isn’t just about hard work. Its everything youve come to expect from the 4 weetabix a day powerhouse DJ/producer/musical incendiary and so much more: unpredictable with touches of disco and tubby-esque dub moments, varied with brushes of blues, soul and rap , urban grime bedlam with double time bounce and ambitious combining so many influences and yet making it feel like they all fit. Without doubt a major step forward from his last solo LP(the art of listening 2002 ninja tune), new, funkafied bop.
