In the midst of political and social turmoil, our night life still seems to prevail and offer us the best the world has to offer. Festival season is coming up (we’ll make sure to recommend some not-to-miss concerts) and outdoor parties are starting to boom (this Friday, put on your dancing shoes, Decks on the Beach and Uberhaus are partnering up at Sporting’s poolside for Uber on the Decks, the first outdoor party of the season).
On Saturday, veteran DJ and producer, DJ Vadim, will be shaking things up in Beirut’s underground club Yukunkun. He’s been touring the world for the last 20 years and is finally gracing us with his presence. His music has always reflected his worldly travels, from hip-hop to reggae and dub, from electronica to cultural beats, from soul to funk.
In 1994, he founded his own independent record label Jazz Fudge and, after being scouted by several labels, signed to Ninja Tune the following year. Through the years, he has collaborated with a wide range of world-renowned artists such as The Roots, Prince, Public Enemy, Stevie Wonder, Sly and the Family Stone, Fat Freddy’s Drop, DJ Krush, Morcheeba…
Dj Vadim is also a voice of positive change. A socially conscious artist who raises awareness on different issues through his music.
Here is a small selection of his top tracks:
Got to Rock
Black is the night (feat. Sena)
Feat Feats (feat. Emo And Syrus)
See you there!
