DJ Vadim

VAKIL/UP TO JAH

NINJA TUNE

Released: 2nd September 2002 | 6 track ep
DJ Vadim comes back one more time before the release of his new album 'USSR: The Art Of Listening.' The new single features the remarkable rhyme-spitting of Vakill, a Chicago native and underground name-to-watch who has worked with luminaries of that city such as the Molemen and Percee P. Vakill comes through with a fast, indefatigable rhyme that just keeps coming at you until you're just smirking and drooling at the wordplay: 'lyrics that'll leave so many rings around this track/Vadim'll beg me to use a coaster.' What really makes it, though, is Vadim's beat, which manages to rope together jazzy stabs, oriental strings and soulful wailing while leaving enough space for the MC to flex his skills to the max. And as if that isn't enough DJ Babu of the mighty Beat Junkies is on turntable duty with some suitably vicious cuts. On the other side is an exclusive: UK dancehall and 2step star Demolition Man is given the Vadim take on bashment to ride on 'Up To Jah' and the result is stunning. With enough sub-bass for a bag full of d&b twelves and a little snare roll that reconfigures your spine every time it comes round, Demo could hardly go wrong. And he certainly doesn't. Pure rudeness from everyone's favourite diminutive Russian DJ. With a whole new album to follow shortly, Vadim is once again set to take his sound a stage further. Listen?'
