Mercury Lounge is proud to celebrate 15 years presenting: DJ VADIM - BBE / NINJA TUNES with Resident Lance Baptiste, djs Balu & Ray Ray Friday, November 25th / 10pm
From Hip Hop and electronica to Soul and Reggae DJ Vadim is "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. Over the last 2 decades few people can have put so much time and energy into the culture they love. Founder of Jazz Fudge (1995) and Organically Grown Sounds (2011), A&R, producer, DJ, promoter, record collector, radio presenter, occasional painter, writer, in-house producer/DJ and cohort of Latin Grammy nominees and Spanish hip hop super group 7 Notas 7 Colorez, and the bands One Self, Butterfish Black and The Electric, Vadim has certainly been keeping himself busy.
When & Where
The Mercury Lounge has been a Mecca for the arts in Canada's capital city of Ottawa, since its inception in November 1996. Its programming purports a musical vision steeped in the traditions of jazz and yet forward in its approach to encompass all its many derivatives. Through its dynamic programming, the Mercury Lounge has successfully connected the dots, uniting jazz with contemporary electronic break beat culture. Within its walls the very philosophy of jazz, that of change, abounds. It serves not only as a club, and live venue, but also for poetry readings, dance performances and art gallery.
