Russian Expatriate DJ Flings Down The First Selection From His Forthcoming LP, Dubcatcher

So… what does a Russian-born yute named Daddy Vad know about “dibby dibby soundboys” you ask? Apparently quite a bit. We were just a tad skeptical when we first encountered this resident of the London suburb of East Ham. After all aren’t there enough hipster dancehall projects littering the global soundscape at the moment? But then we took another look at that crazy album art. And the label’s press release finally won us over when it stated: “Think more Eddy Grant than Sean Paul.
