DUBCATCHER NEW ZEALAND TOUR DATES
THURS 20th and FRIDAY 21st March – Ponsonby Social Club, Auckland
Local DJ support from Bobby Brazuka & Dylan C
FREE ENTRY - 9pm - 3am
DJ Vadim has become well respected as an innovator in a number of areas during his career, "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). In 1994, Vadim founded his own independent record label, Jazz Fudge and signed to Ninja Tune the following year. So begun Vadim’s adventure that is now approaching its twentieth year and has seen him tour across 69 countries and perform over 2500 times, with shows at some of the world’s most prestigious events such as Sonar, Glastonbury, Big Chill, V Fest, Fuji Rock, Roskilde, Exit, VInarock, Moscow Street Ball (to over 40,000 people), Notting Hill Carnival and Shambhala… To describe the man as an internationalist almost seems to sell him short.
This week, as part of his worldwide tour, DJ Vadim aka Daddy Vad is coming downunder and to celebrate Loop is releasing an exclusive tour EP, the Dubcatcher Tour EP & Album Taster (more info on the EP below). Daddy Vad will be in New Zealand this week to play 2 free back-to-back shows at Auckland's Ponsonby Social Club.
Don’t miss your chance to see Vadim and get a taste of his album live before it drops. It’s all about vibesing up the place. We know you wanna hear some drums n bass!
DJ Vadim Dubcatcher Tour EP & Album Taster
To celebrate his Australasian Tour and to give you a taste of what’s to come on his upcoming album Dubcatcher, set for release in June 2014, Loop is super stoked to present the limited edition DJ Vadim Dubcatcher Tour EP & Album Taster.
The EP brings together the sounds of the up-coming album including 80’s dancehall, reggae, soul and boogie. Featuring 6 unreleased tracks - 4 off the album plus 2 exclusive tracks only ever to be found on this limited edition EP! Excitingly, both the Dubcatcher LP and Tour EP include the standout tracks 'Ring My Bell' and 'Rise'.
‘Ring My Bell’ ft Governor Tiggy is a vibing dancehall track that is – as Daddy Vad would put it - “for those trainspotters of the HH electronic echo unit as made popular by Jah shaka in full effect with the echo plex and space echo to boot!.” ‘Rise’ takes influences from classic roots music, infusing soul boogie with live horns and features the smooth vocals of New Zealand’s own Rio Hemopo of Trinity Roots.
Dubcatcher Tour EP & Album Taster, available now digitally only via iTunes and Bandcamp and you can stream it HERE.
Get dat riddim' in yo ears!
