The Polish Ambassador
For the Polish Ambassador project, born on the richly-colored streets of Chicago and San Francisco, infectious melody is paramount. However, this never overshadows the depth and harmonic complexity that have made the Ambassador a favorite amongst festival curators and beat aficionados worldwide. Over the course of 6 years, his sound has dipped and swirled through a staggering range of styles, with each album exploring uncharted sonic territory. Warm, analogue dreamwave; mind-altering glitch; world-infused groove; bass-fueled breaks; sexified downtempo; electric lullabies; and psy-fi funk are just a few of the genres that have poured from the Ambassador’s soul into earbuds and ghetto-blasters across the galaxy.
Despite the political connotations of his name, the Ambassador is not a political partisan. Rather, he is a diplomat for a new paradigm rooted in creative joy, radical self-expression, and ecological principles. As part of this mission, the Ambassador has committed to carbon-neutral touring, instigating exploratory dance, and igniting fan participation.
Flanked on the Ambassador’s left is visual artist Liminus, a master of translating dynamic, sonic landscapes into breathtaking video projection. Liminus’s improvisational abilities are a perfect compliment to the Ambassador’s custom-tailored audio transmission, and his presence on stage allows for an audio/visual synergy rarely witnessed in electronic music performance.
Together, the duo will take you on a voyage that leaves you drenched in sweat, with a smile slapped on your face, and a heart busted wide open.

“I feel very adventurous. There are so many doors to be opened, and I'm not afraid to look behindthem.” Elizabeth Taylor
As with fine delicacies which improve with age, such as whisky, wine and cheese, DJ Vadim has been tenaciously and soulfully fermenting his global musical elixir for over 20 years and is now well and truly a unique vintage.
Russian born and London residing, DJ Vadim has built a reputation as one of the world’s top independent producers; travelling the globe, performing and collaborating with established and developing talents that cross continents, languages and cultures. Dubbed as the “John Coltrane of hiphop”, Vadim has become well respected as an innovator in a number of areas during his career, "a veteran presence in the DJ community as well as one of the foremost producers in too many communities to count, Vadim is never running out of ideas" (URB Magazine). He has been described as “one of the few artists creating genuinely new work in the hip hop field” and an artist “who cannot be ignored”.
“Known for mad skillz, complete versatility and a winning smile, he is a true mixologist and is cutting edge across hip hop, soul, funk, grime, reggae, dub, and bass. We’ve been banging his mix albums since the mid 90’s. The guy is a legend” LSM 2012
In 1994, Vadim founded his own independent record label, Jazz Fudge. The following year he was signed to Ninja Tune and promptly introduced to the world by John Peel and Gilles Peterson. So begun Vadim’s adventure which has seen him tour across 69 countries, 6 continents and perform over 3000 times.
Liminus (Ari Makridakis) began his creative life as a painter. After attending the San Francisco Art Institute in the late 90's, Liminus became obsessed with interactive art and moved to Maui to dedicate himself completely to this vision. To make art that left room for the viewer's creative choices, Liminus began making flipbook-style paintings which could be configured into millions of unique art pieces. Within a year, Liminus was creating and showing his work digitally, using custom-built software, hand-made interface devices, large-scale projections, and portable printers. These works allowed viewers to wander through mazes of trillions of visual possibilities, add in their own text and images, and walk away with a print of their creation. Since 2004, Liminus has shown these interactive art pieces in fine art galleries such as Studio 333 in Sausalito, night clubs such as Supperclub San Francisco, festivals such as Priceless and Burning Man, and on a Carnival's Xingolati cruise. More recently, Liminus has broadened his artistic interests to include the political, creating posters and paintings for the Occupy movement. At the same time, he has also begun touring with The Polish Ambassador as VJ and director of fan interaction.
Wildlight is the space between the notes, the earth’s undulating pulse, the modern echoes of ancient rhythms. It is a sound that will spark your body into motion and swing your soul into flight. While vocalist Ayla Nereo delicately crafts songs that climb and tumble through a landscape of crescendos and harmonies, seasoned composer David Sugalski (aka The Polish Ambassador) keeps the beats and bass rooted deep in the subatomic layers of the earth.
