Huntington Beach, CA (PressExposure) March 20, 2014 -- The composer of electronic music known as DJ Vagif has released his debut EP record, "In Dreaming." The album is comprised of six original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 20 minutes. It has been proudly published as an independent music release. A rolling electronica record based on a variety of grooves and contemporary digital music styles, "In Dreaming" stands as proof that DJ Vagif is one of America's most creative artists in the digital genre and outside of it.
Finding artists with whom to compare DJ Vagif's "In Dreaming" is difficult. The digital composer's official ReverbNation page cites such popular fellow DJs as Bonobo, 9th Wonder, Pretty Lights, RJD2 and Ratatat as similar in style or sound. Still, Vagif's work on "In Dreaming" isn't like anything else. It's a record full of character and subtle innovations.
"I love Flume and his bouncy vocals and kick snare," comments DJ Vagif. "I would say for this album Flume influenced me the most."
Further discussing the raw ingredients that go into his music, DJ Vagif writes, "I produce all of the songs from the ground up. I had the chance to work with a young singer [Alms] from outside of the U.S. on track 2 from my album called 'Over You.' She did great, and wrote the lyrics herself."
Vagif's sounds are spacious and ambient without at all belonging to the ambient subgenre of electronic music. His official bio calls him a Salt Lake City DJ, "releasing versatile mixes, singles, EPs, anything from electro, hip hop, mash-up, instrumental to dubstep and classic, all that consist of his own personality and different genres that surge through his headphones."
In the end, his turntables prove to be one of his most important sonic weapons.
"I started getting involved [with music] after high school," he writes, "with buying my first set of turntables. I loved the experimental style of turntablism, and making something your own unique sound. After a year I started spinning at local hip-hop shows and have not stopped. Producing has always been in my heart, and the turntables brought that out in me."
Speaking of the themes in "In Dreaming," DJ Vagif says, "I think my albums message generates everyday life with my listeners. From the ups and downs of the day and moods we go in through sound, and beats."
The remarkably versatile "In Dreaming" by DJ Vagif is available online worldwide.
