DJ Vadim Presents The Electric – Life is Moving – Exclusive Giant Step Mix + MP3

Mix for by DJ Vadim

DJ Vadim’s new group The Electric recently released Life is Moving, layering electro-funk under soulful hip-hop vibes. In very heavy rotation at the Giant Step headquarters, Life is Moving consists of nothing but 100% quality tracks, from the opening ’70s-style roller boogie “Toot Toot,” to the deeper groove of “We Rolling,” to the sweet lovin’ tracks like “Hands Up.” Watch two music videos – “Beautiful ft. Yarah Bravo” & “Running” – singles from the new album, after the jump.

DJ Vadim travels the world and drops prizes and clues for fans as he goes — to learn more, check out The Electric Sound Company’s worldwide scavenger hunt with DC Shoes. The project involves street art in the form of electric blue plastic-wrapped bikes, and the uploadening of fun pix.
