Grammy-nominated, multi-award winning DJ and producer, DJ Vadim is excited to be returning to America for his 2013 Don’t Be Scared Tour. Starting in Richmond Virginia, Daddy Vad will descend upon cities from San Francisco to Cambridge, New York to Denver, bringing fans his trademark live turntable extravaganza.

“It’s going to be banging,” says the electronica, trip-hop, hip-hop producer. “Let’s go, let’s have it. No holds barred.”

The tour is named after Vadim’s 10th studio album. The Russian born, globetrotting DJ is always pushing musical boundaries and Don’t be Scared is no different: The 2012 Spring LP is about melding the old with the new. Hip hop in mind-set, electronic in sound, and soulful in spirit– with undertones of tribalism and some hypnotic elements– Don’t Be Scared is rooted to bass culture, connecting dots along the way.
