DJ Krush

Sony

Japan


Hideaki Ishii is with no discussion the father of abstract hip hop. Born in Japan in 1962 DJ Krush is one of the most impressive artists that can be seen live on today. Blessed in that special talent available to only a handful of creators, Krush has the ability to make use of the dj plates as an authentic tool to create live sound. His dj sets continually trascend the boundaries showing the endless possibilities available, his technique without limitation, neat live development and a brilliant sound.

In continuous dialogue with his musical discourse, wich since 1992 has spent nearly 20 years reinventing itself and evolving based on hip hop and acid jazz, improvisation and abstract techniques, Dj Krush has published some of the most important albums of the past two decades, “Stricty turntablized” (Mo Wax, 1994), “Kakusei” (SMEJ, 1997) or “Holonic” (Sony, 1997) are a few examples, and along with Dj Shadow is considered king of that sound halfway between trip hop and hip hop, looking towards jazz and supported by scratching developing its full potential through live performances, where his technique and speech each time creates an unique experience.
