Vadim Zhukov

Russia's Top DJ and Producer

Vadim Zhukov is one of those anomalies in electronic music; a producer with lashings of talent and little ego to get in the way. His sound is constantly evolving with little heed paid to his contemporaries, it ranges from melodic trance through minimal percussive clubs sounds to head-spinning techno-tinged soundscapes.

Hailing from Nizhnevartovsk, Russia he was catapulted into the Russian trance spotlight at the age of 18 with his release 'Silver Star' - Above & Beyond made him their 'Unsung Hero' on their weekly radio show on Ministry of Sound radio. Since then Vadim has scored a plethora of releases on labels such as Armada Music, Black Hole Recordings, Sony Germany to name a few. He became one of the top DJs in Russia actively touring, headlining big festivals and club nights alongside world superstars of the electronic scene.

His early tracks and remixes were played by all the big progressive trance DJs of 2000s - Paul Oakenfold, Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, Paul Van Dyk, Above and Beyond, John 00 Fleming and Markus Schulz.

Nowadays Vadim Zhukov focuses on Melodic House & Techno genre. You can find his latest releases in playlists of Solomun and Erick Morillo.
