V.I.V.E.K

Today’s electronic music scene revolves continuously on hype, and there are few artists and label camps that can rely almost entirely on their musical content to do their talking. Mala’s Deep Medi camp and V.I.V.E.K the artist are noted exceptions to this rule.

Influenced by the golden years of drum and bass and a steady diet of dub and roots music, V.I.V.E.K has been honing his musical construction skills since 2004.

Today’s electronic music scene revolves continuously on hype, and there are few artists and label camps that can rely almost entirely on their musical content to do their talking. Mala’s Deep Medi camp and V.I.V.E.K the artist are noted exceptions to this rule.

Influenced by the golden years of drum and bass and a steady diet of dub and roots music, V.I.V.E.K has been honing his musical construction skills since 2004. Progressing naturally from DJ’ing to production, and originally beginning to build music around the 170 tempo, 140 BPM was the pitch that worked for V.I.V.E.K to shape his unique subterranean groove.

With one 12” release under his belt for “On the Edge”, fellow soundscaper Silkie passed a CD of his productions to DMZ / Deep Medi visionary Mala. The launching pad into musical infamy was then set with his first 12” for the innovative camp (“Kulture / Meditation Rock”) in 2009. The momentum this release initiated was to spark a flurry of concentrated creative power, and many sought after dubplates from V.I.V.E.K. The “Feel It” EP was the culmination of this period of focus. This 4 track EP and its attached “Mix Session” CD captured his vision succinctly and solidified V.I.V.E.K’s reputation as one of the most talented artists working in the 140 framework today.

Fervent support for V.I.V.E.K music has always come from the DJ’s that fully understand the power that 140 BPM holds when the construction is pure. Mala, Youngsta, N-Type, Mary Anne Hobbs, Skream, Distance, Gilles Peterson, Mistajam, Nihal (of BBC Radio 1), & Anti Social have all been compasses that chart the sonic progress of the V.I.V.E.K sound. « hide
