DROM and the hip-hop/ funk percussive powerhouse TURNTABLES ON THE HUDSON proudly present one-night with DJ VADIM. The Russian-blooded, London-bred DJ VADIM -- called "the father of Russian hip-hop" -- blends an experimental combination of electronica, ska, and reggae with chopped samples, turntable scratches, and a whole lotta non-English vocals. His last CD was described as "schizophrenic…ingenious…and tasteful."
DJ VADIM will be joined by special guests ERIK THE RED and $MALL¢HANGE. Hailing from Brooklyn, ERIK THE RED spins reggae-infused funk alongside $MALL¢HANGE's vintage and modern Jamaican dancehall and disco covers.
DJ Vadim is "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".
Vadim moved from St Petersburg to London at the age of 5, but this story begins in 1992. Vadim bought a sampler and started working on the music that would become Abstract Hallucinating Gases and Headz Ain't Ready EP’s (1995). Later in the year he signed to the iconic record label, Ninja Tune, and so began the whirlwind that is the life of DJ Vadim.
2010 saw Vadim creating Organically Grown Sounds, a new record label founded with Yarah Bravo, and their first project is"The Electric," a new band that sees Vadim joined by Chicago's hottest young rapper, Pugs Atomz and Machester's finest songstress, Sabira Jade: "Electric turns out to be a good word for this latest DJ Vadim creation - sometimes it empowers you, sometimes it shocks you, and sometimes it's a bit dangerous."

The Electric's debut album, Life is Moving, came out on March 14th, and it's been described as "amazing music that is not only innovative but also rich in harmony, flavour and most importantly – SOUL!" by Soul Culture and Clash Magazine said "The Electric pops from the speakers."
