It's rare to see Nassau, Covid and Grace Jones in the same sentence, but they were indeed part of the creative basis for DJ Vadim's brand new album, FEEL UP. If someone had said in 2019 that a year later the world would literally shut down due to a pandemic, very few would have believed them (well, except those who have been waiting for the apocalypse since the year 2000). But the Covid did arrive, countries closed their borders, clubs closed and people were confined to varying degrees. As a busy international DJ, all this was nothing short of armageddon for Vadim. The skies were darkened, but rather than sink into inactivity and hibernation, DJ Vadim created within himself his own tropical music festival, an alternative universe that would share some kind of kinship with the recordings made at Compass Point Studios, orchestrated by Chris Blackwell for Grace Jones (1980-1982), James Brown, AC/DC, and many others... It was a melting pot of world-class musicians, blending reggae, pop, soul and African rhythms and sounds... together creating one of the most influential albums of the period, and it was in this spirit that the inspiration and title of DJ Vadim's new album, FEEL UP (literally 'Feel good' / 'Have the strength, the courage'), was born. Forty years after those sessions at Compass Point Studios, the same quest for discovery took place in Vadim's Barcelona studio.
