Ahead of the show we pressed our ear to a random door and picked up this conversation between Chris P Cuts and DJ Vadim himself. What were the chances?
You’ve been on your travels as of late. Where’s the best party, club or festival you’ve played at in 2012?
Peha - Maui - Hawaii.
Played in a hut at the edge of the jungle.... NUTS!!!!
In recent times I’ve heard you play a Drum & Bass remix, Dubstep remix and a few other edits of your worldwide smash ‘The Terrorist’. Are these remixes available? What’s the deal with the official video too? Never seems to last to long on YouTube!
There never was a video to this song. A few people have made one but I never sanctioned any. Nutter Americans keep taking them down cos they’re paranoid about that word and think I am part of the axis of evil!!!
As for the mixes... yeah there are a few I’ve done. They are all downloadable from my SoundCloud page.
Vads, you’re a fashion icon! People know when you’ve arrived at the club. Where does the inspiration for this come from and where’re your favourite spots to shop throughout the world?
Fashion icon?!!! Wow, hahaha! Well I like to mix things up and try new things. Fashion is something I’ve definitely been more into recently. So I mix golf with gentlemen, mix trashy and baseball, mix chic with sports, mix summer and winter!!!
You’ve always got a new project, a new group, a new LP or something else NEW! Could you give us a little sneak peak into this newness?
Witness the newness. I have a new album called - DJ Vadim - Don't B Scared. It’s coming out on BBE in October. First single - This DJ, comes in August. Hopefully you will get to hear it real soon!
And finally, there’s already a few contenders but what’s DJ Vadim’s tune for summer 2012?
Oh God I never remember… But songs that are really working for me right now are:
Foreign Beggers - Flyin To Mars
Nadastrom - Church
Onra - Love
Cheers Vads. Always a pleasure and we look forward to your set Friday 13th at Brixton Jamm. Gonna be HUGE!!
