DJ Vadim

Hip-hop's influence spread far and wide during the '80s, as witnessed by the growth of the international scene during the following decade. Standing beside brilliant DJs from Japan (Krush) and France (Cam), Russia's DJ Vadim has proved to be the most popular advocate of hip-hop to come out of the former Soviet bloc, triggered mostly by the fact that he moved to Britain early in life. Upon arrival, he set up his own Jazz Fudge Records to issue a demo he called Derelicts of Conformity (by Son of Seth). He finally released the recordings early in 1995, as DJ Vadim's Abstract Hallucinating Gases EP. Britain's top hip-hop and acid jazz DJs began playing the record and, after being scouted by several labels, Vadim signed a contract with Ninja Tune. Several EPs released during 1995-1996 showed him to be quite an experimentalist, working heavily with static and noise, never content to let his ideas meander past the two- or three-minute point. His first LP, U.S.S.R. Repertoire (The Theory of Verticality), was released in late 1996.

The following year, Vadim began working on acts for Jazz Fudge; he issued the compilation Sculpture & Broken Sound, then debuted his own Andre Gurov project with the album A New Rap Language. His next project, the highly touted remix album U.S.S.R. Reconstruction, appeared in 1998, and was followed a year later by U.S.S.R.: Life from the Other Side. His third U.S.S.R. record, The Art of Listening, dropped in 2002. Relatively quiet during the early 2000s -- his only full-length release was a mix album, Stereo Pictures, Vol. 3 -- Vadim nevertheless reappeared in 2007 on BBE, with a production album titled The Soundcatcher, as well as the Live in Brooklyn mix CD on Mothergrain. He was back on BBE for his next 12", Got to Rock/Black Is the Night, at the end of 2007 and remained there for his next two singles, 2008's Talk to Me/Like the Wind and 2009's Hidden Treasure/Saturday/Soldier. The full-length LP U Can't Lurn Imaginashun was issued in May of 2009 and featured R&B vocalist Sabirajade along with Chicago veteran Pugs Atomz, while 2012's Don't Be Scared included vocalists Sabirajade, Greg Blackman, and Yarah Bravo. Vadim has also worked as the Bug, with Kevin Martin, Dave Cochran, and Alex Buess. ~ John Bush, Rovi

What this bio doesnt mention is his experience with the group One Self, which he produced tracks for Blue Rum 13 and Yarah Bravo. These two artist have been featured on his earlier work The Art of Listening Ussr: Reconstructi o n . One of his best works.
I saw him live in Lawrence, KS and he signed my vinyl copy of USSR: Art of Listening!!! He's a really nice guy :)
