DJ Krush's stateside introduction, KRUSH, is chocked full of hip-hop beats and flowing soul. Monday Michiru lends her vocals to the smooth "Keeping the Motion," and Sonya Vallet brings the romantic soul to "Big City Lover." But most of the tracks here are instrumentals, tinged through-and-through with jazz. The beats on "Roll & Tumble" are tight, and the horns on "On The Dub-ble" mellow. "Into the Water" brings on some guitar in myriad forms, from jangly to psychedelic riffs, with some swift cutting for good measure. "Ruff-Neck Jam" really as rough as you'd think, but it is a full-on jazz jam session. But for me, the top track on here is the multilingual "Murder of Soul," a darker, smoky joint, with hints of mystery in the clouds. A crushing introduction.
