DJ KRUSH (Tokyo)
with special guests

Born in 1962 in Tokyo, DJ Krush is a gifted producer & DJ with a superb sense of mixing and composing his sound and has been greatly received in the international club scene.

It was the movie Wild Style that got him into hip hop in the early 80's, and in 1987, he formed Krush Posse which made numerous appearances in various media as the best hip hop act in Japan. Krush began pursuing his solo career after the break-up of the group in late 1992, and soon grabbed people's attention as the first DJ to use turntables as live instruments, doing free sessions with live musicians on stage.

DJ Krush’s debut self-titled album was released in January 1994, and since then he has released countless records in Japan, Europe, US and around the globe. All of his solo releases have ranked high in various charts in and out of Japan, and his 6th album Zen has been highly acclaimed and was awarded the Best Electronica Album in 2002 at the AIFM Awards (US). His 8th album jaku, released in late 2004, has topped the RPM chart of CMJ for 3 weeks in the US. In March 2006, DJ Krush released his first best of album in self-remixed style, Stepping Stones & , making another huge buzz around the globe.

Aside from his outer national activities as producer, remixer and DJ, Krush constantly expands his field from soundtracks for films, TV dramas & commercials to live sessions with various musicians that transcend music genre.
