DJ VADIM
Friday 1st May 2015


Certain high-end consumables such as whisky, wine and cheese are said to improve with age, undergoing many complex processes to enhance and improve the flavour, colour and appearance. In the same vein, DJ Vadim has defiantly and soulfully been fermenting and malting his global musical elixir for coming on 20 years now, and can well and truly be described as vintage.
