Previewing forthcoming album The Dubcatcher, due to drop in June, is the video for Hope, with record players aplenty, Ultraman and a cat. DJ Vadim is one of the hardest working and most prolific names in the scene – here are his thoughts on the vid:

dubcatcher“I wanted to shoot a video for this single and I searched for a video director. Unfortunately time ran out and the ideas didn’t really come in. SO I decided to do a video homage to vintage turntables spanning from 1950’s to late 1980’s… I feel this is in keeping with the feel of the track – it’s a retro reggae style with big horns and a b line to boot. 15 vintage turntables including Garrard, Vacuum, Columbia, Fidelity, Bush, Dansette, Alba, Thorens, Technics 1210, Westminister. Music sounds better on vinyl!”
