DJ VADIM “Forgotten Treasures Mix #14”

Reggae Soul

Here we are with another edition of the best damn mix series going on right now! Ok ok, we don’t usually brag about our own projects but we could not be more proud of the Forgotten Tresures series. Not only do we have a killer lineup of artists (Ta-Ku, Zed Bias, Paul Nice, Marc Mac and others) but the concept is wonderful too. We simply ask artists to make a mix based on their influences and roots.

So here is #14 by none other than DJ Vadim who has been making supreme quality music since 1995 mostly on 2 legendary labels; Ninja Tune & BBE.

Vadim was at my place in Montreal for a few days and he was asking for specifics about the theme: influences? weird music? childhood music? can it be dancefloor oriented? does it have to be super mellow? how “old” exactly is a forgotten treasure? After a few minutes of back and forth, he went in the studio and recorded it in one take.

As he says: “Here are a series of songs which have isnpired me to be me!”
