Hardest working man in show business? Trooper? Tireless?
However you want to put it, be sure of one thing, when DJ Vadim first heard the phrase "Don't sleep" he obviously took it literally.

Over the last decade few people can have put so much time and energy into the culture they love. Founder of Jazz Fudge in early 1995, A&R, producer, DJ, promoter, record collector, radio presenter, occasional painter, writer, and in-house producer/dj and cohort of Latin Grammy nominees, Spanish hip hop super group 7 Notas 7 Colorez, Vadim has certainly been keeping himself busy. And that's before we even mention his DJing itself which has seen him perform in virtually every country in Europe(east and west), all over North America, Australia, New Zealand. Japan, Israel, Turkey, South America and South East Asia in just the last year. He has also performed with the likes of DJ Krush, Company Flow, The Roots, Pharcyde, Public Enemy, Beat Junkies, Dilated Peoples, Kraftwerk, Ed Rush, Morcheeba and Paul Weller as well as at events like Glastonbury and the Moscow Street Ball festival (to over 40,000 people!). To describe the man as an internationalist almost seems to sell him short.

From DJ'ing at the now infamous Future Primitive parties to running his own Change the Beat weekly in San Francisco for nearly 5 years, Mophono (also aka DJ Centipede) has been an unsung mainstay of the Bay Area, CA electronic/hip hop DJ scenes for some time. Fresh off of both an appearance on The Gaslamp Killer's latest Death Gate EP and live at his 10/10/10 Brainfeeder Session in Los Angeles, the beatmaker and crate- digging aficionado has begun to focus on his next step – a full length release entitled Cut Form Crush for his own label CB Records.

Benji's sample digging and break hunting roots stem from the era where DJ Shadow was "Entroduced" and vinyl was the only way to DJ; as Mophono, he specializes in the art of dusty drums and heavy synthscapes. Cut Form Crush presents an expert take on the escalating west coast beat scene with 14 tracks of formidable compositional styles that beautifully weave together all sorts of musical breeds – the wide-ranging influences of music concrete, B- Boy culture, classical string arrangements and dirty jazz drumming can all be heard throughout. "Cut Form Crunch", which was created from a live studio session with the luminary Flying Lotus, is completely exemplary of the album's hard edge drum machine crunch and odd rhythms. After a listen to the album, the unique stamp of Mophono's skillful past and future in music becomes exceedingly clear.

Having performed at the Brainfeeder festival (Flying Lotus brain child) and shared the stage with Amon Tobin, Edan, DJ Food, DJ Krush, Dabrye, Diplo, Gonjasufi and De La Soul and many others), Mophono is poised and ready to present Cut Form Crush, his finest and most all-encompassing statement.
