Jaku is DJ Krush at his darkest. A textural, cinematic release that explores space and depth rather than simply the cracking beats he's famed for, this album is not only the best Krush album but also one of the greatest Hip-Hop albums in existence. People who are looking for an easy listen will not appreciate this; much of it is quite abstract when compared to the rest of the genre and there are very few tracks with vocals. Mr Lif provides one of the best MC'd tracks of Krush's catalog with Nosferatu, while the sinister swagger and warped samples of Distant Voices displays why Krush is so widely revered as a producer. It's been a long time since the release of this album and we've not had anything by way of a follow-up, and one can easily understand why.... Topping an album as brilliant as this is nigh on impossible.
