DJ VADIM – ’20th Anniversary Tour’
In the year 1999 DJ Vadim released his seminal LP – “U.S.S.R. Life from the Other Side” 20 years on we are celebrating this iconic Ninja Tune’s release with the man himself as he returns to Aotearoa for four exclusive shows.
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. 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). In 1994, Vadim founded his own independent record label, Jazz Fudge and signed to Ninja Tune the following year. So begun Vadim’s adventure that is now approaching its twentieth year and has seen him tour across 68 countries and perform over 2500 times. Throughout his career he has worked with a variety of musicians, singers and groups, including DJ Krush, Stevie Wonder, The Roots, Prince, Public Enemy, and more. 11 solo albums, 5 mix CDs, 7 group albums, countless mix CDs 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.
