We here at the Morass, having followed the merging of hip hop and electronic music for many years, are extremely excited to see this EP released in a world where so much music lacks a lasting resonance. The Voodoo Dred EP is deeply personal and conceptual, put together with spirituality, soul and intelligence.

Born in Mexico City to Haitian parents, VOODOO DRED a.k.a. Vadim Juste-Constant moved to Australia when only 3. Music was a major part of his family life, his father being a well renowned touring singer throughout Haiti and Mexico. Mainly growing up in Sydney, Brisbane and later Darwin, all impacting on the developing artist VOODOO DRED. In 2007, he arrived in Melbourne, looking for a new channel for his compelling/dynamic love for music. He has been touring as a diverse artist since 2000 not only as VOODOO DRED but as an MC/singer and musician playing instruments from drums, guitar, bass and percussion in bands such as Culture Connect and Gorilla Step with DJ Dexter.

“The concept of what I want to create is to continue the west African tradition of a Griot but in an urban, contemporary sense. Going back to traditional African beats and translating them into a hip hop context, I believe traditional African drumming is the original “trance” music because back in the day they would play these rhythms for days on end and literally get into a trance.” – VJ

Damn DT you’ve done it again…
