DJ Vadim, the Russian turntablist who's part DJ Krush, part DJ Shadow, and all musical revolutionary, has teamed up with the amazing New York MC Blu Rum 13 and Yarah Bravo, the petite Swedish-born Chilean/Brazilian MC/songstress whose smooth lyricism can be compared only to that of the great female rapper Bahamadia. The international trio is the perfect hip-hop group creative vocalists and a DJ whose sound, which seems to mirror the group's own diversity, never stays in one place. "A lot of people want to represent an area or a place," Bravo explains. "But from us, you don't really get that, because we're from so many different backgrounds that we kind of represent everything."
One Self's credo: "We're from so many different backgrounds that we kind of represent everything"
