Vadim Zhukov

Vadim Zhukov is one of those anomalies in electronic music; a producer with lashings of talent and little ego to get in the way. His sound is constantly evolving with little heed paid to his contemporaries, his sound ranges from melodic trance through minimal percussive clubs sounds to head-spinning techno-tinged soundscapes. Hailing from Nizhnevartovsk, Russia he was catapulted into the Russian trance spotlight at the age of 18 with his first release 'Silver Star' - Above & Beyond made him their 'Unsung Hero' on their weekly radio show. Since then Vadim has scored a plethora of releases on labels such as Armada, Black Hole and Joof with heavy support by Tiesto, John '00' Flemming, Above and Beyond, Paul van Dyk, Ferry Corsten, Paul Oakenfold, Armin Van Buuren, Nick Warren, to name a few.

2004 saw Vadim Zhukov begin to become one of the future stars for the electronic dance scene, with strong releases such as 'Exit' and 'Nothing Matters' on Armin van Buuren's Armada label, and 'Mission 7' and 'Earth's Breathing' on Tiesto's Black Hole Recordings.

Vadim's 'Moscow Morning' track was released on Solar Stone's Deep Blue Records. There was a huge response for this tune, with a review by DJ Mag and a first place position in the DMC Trance chart. In 2005, Vadim Zhukov released his debut album 'Evolution' on the Russian label iRecords and second Artist album entitled '0' was released to critical acclaim in 2009.

In 2009 Vadim Zhukov launched TFA Records as a platform for his brand new productions.
