There are some musicians/ bands who make one album & disappear. There's being prolific, & there are people who actually seep music through their pours. Well, DJ Vadim aka Daddy Vad has definitely planted his feet in the second camp.
Over the last 2 decade’s few people have put so much time & energy into the culture they love. Founder of Jazz Fudge in early 1995, A&R, producer, promoter, record collector, award-winning radio presenter, writer, chef & yogi. Vadim has certainly been keeping himself busy. That’s before we even mention his DJing itself which has seen him perform over 3000 times in 78 countries to date, performing at some of the worlds most prestigious festivals like Glastonbury, Fuji Rock… to winning countless awards & having his mixtapes continuously chart no.1 on sites like Mixcloud.
To describe the man as an internationalist almost seems to sell him short.
For an artist with such a long recording pedigree, it would be easy to sit in cruise control, knock out music by numbers, or just rehash earlier ideas & become somewhat irrelevant & passed his ‘sell by date’. Similarly, it would be easy to just work with the ‘stars’ of the day & ‘buy fame’ but again this isn’t Vadim.
Joining the dots of the music, one can hear that musical evolution is the key. A work in progress. Starting from a foundation in instrumental Hip-Hop music, Vadim has combined Bass Culture, Reggae, Dancehall, Latin, Rap, worldly sounds…. all with a touch of soul working time & time again with new upcoming artists who later in their own right, take off!
Vadim doesn’t buy or rely on famous features. He nurtures & creates new talents, new sounds, the future sounds of London!
