The Curtis Radio «10 songs only» series keep gaining momentum, the list of very special guests keeps growing strong and today we reach episode number 25 with another top musical talent and international star. We follow DJ Vadim’s extended and highly prolific career since day one. It was the early 90s and Vadim aka The Dub Catcher was already on our radar as he was starting from a foundation in instrumental hip hop and releasing great music on his label Jazz Fudge and in seminal UK imprint Ninja Tune too. But a voracious appetite for musical discovery and experimentation made it impossible to pigeonhole and restrict his musical palette to just one genre or style. Both in the studio (with 17 albums released to date)and in stages and DJ booths around the world (over 3000 gigs in 78 countries) he has achieved a trademark and highly personal Vadim sound that combines hip hop, reggae, dancehall, bass culture, latin, disco, funk, world sounds, and beyond. So it’s with great pleasure that today we present here 10 songs that represent and matter in the always soul-lifting and colorful musical world of DJ Vadim. Press play, turn it up, and enjoy the ride! Daddy Vad is in the house Ladies and Gentlemen.
