Russian born and London and Berlin residing, DJ Vadim has built a reputation as one of the world’s top independent producers; travelling the globe, performing and collaborating with established and developing talents that cross continents, languages and cultures. 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 68 countries and perform over 2500 times.

Hard to put a peg on because he sticks to no rule-book, Vadim’s musical repertoire encompasses hip hop, trip hop, soul, funk, grime, reggae, dub and bass, and he has produced numerous solo and group albums across these genres (Ninja Tune, Jazzfudge, Wordsound, BBE) with seminal tracks such as The Terrorist, Black is the night and Bluebird. Throughout his career he has worked with a variety of musicians, singers and groups, including DJ Krush, Stevie Wonder, The Roots, Prince, Public Enemy, Dilated Peoples, Kraftwerk, Sly and the family stone, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Super Furry Animals, and Paul Weller. He has formed and produced a number of groups: The Bug, The Isolationist, The Russian Percussion, One Self and The Electric, and In 2002 Vadim was nominated for a Latin Grammy for his work with 7 Notas 7 Colores. Delving into the broadcasting world, Vadim’s radio shows ‘Around the World in 8 Relays,’ broadcast by the BBC World Service was nominated for a Sony Award.


The FORT KNOX FIVE have spent the last decade as a leading force in the international funk and breaks scene. Having released an arsenal of floor rocking original music and remixes, the FORT KNOX FIVE has the midas touch for producing heavy hitting records.

The FORT KNOX FIVE consists of Steve Raskin, Rob Myers, Jon Horvath, and Sid Barcelona. They established Fort Knox Recordings in 2003 to release party-rocking music that crosses tempos and defies genres. Their world renowned ‘Fort Knox Sound’ has overtaken dance-floors with its distinct interweaving of live instrumentation with funky electronic breakbeats. FK5’s talent for organic hooks has made them highly sought after producer/remixers, and landed them in the prestigious URB Next 100. They have dozens of remixes to their credit, including monster remixes for the legendary Tito Puente, Louis Armstrong, and Bob Marley. Further cementing the FORT KNOX FIVE’S production reputation, Afrika Bambaataa—the godfather of hip-hop—has recruited them numerous times to produce tracks. Their video for the song Shift featuring Afrika Bambaataa & Mustafa Akbar was called “groundbreaking” by Spinner. Their songs have consistently broken the Itunes & Beatport Top 10 Charts in multiple genres, Including reaching #1 positions in Breaks, Reggae, and Chillout on Beatport.
