DJ Krush – real name 石 英明 (Hideaki Ishi) is a highly influential hip hop / trip hop DJ known for his distinctive, ground-breaking instrumental production. He creates a multi-layered atmosphere with sound elements from nature and sampling of jazz and soul.
This show at Electric Brixton in London is his first for 2 years and the perfect opportunity to catch the 53 year old genre-defying DJ. I always wanted to see him in Tokyo, but never managed to. The babysitter is booked: I’ll be there in London. Get your own tickets from Soundcrash here.
DJ KRUSH released his first album in 11 years – ‘The Butterfly Effect’ on October 30th last year (iTunes link). I’ve been listening to that, and his massive back catalogue non-stop since I heard about the gig. Inspiring and beautiful beats. Don’t miss this show!
