He may very well be the greatest hip hop producer ever. Very few like DJ Premiere, ATCQ, Mixmaster Mike and Eric B all hover above the majority of hip hop producers but Krush is a level above them all. Eclectic, original and diverse, Krush is truly king.

All time favorite DJ. Perfect balance between hard beats, downtempo, lo-fi, trip-hop, ambient, name it what you want. This guy has it all. Every album sounds different, and yet he still manages to keep his sound somehow in over 30 years of his career. A real pioneer of beat making.

There is only one word needed to describe DJ Krush: LEGEND.

You will find no better, no more talented, no more diverse and eclectic producer of hip-hop, downtempo, trip-hop, instrumental hip-hop, broken beat, nu-jazz, whatever-the-hell you want to call it. Krush must be mentioned in the same breath as DJ Premier, Pete Rock, DJ Shadow (pre-Outsider), DJ Cam, and Nujabes - there guys are legends, and if you dig one of them, you're pretty likely to dig them all.

Essential Tracks:
Song 1; Fu-Yu; Only The Strong Survive; On The Dub-ble; Yushin - Brave Heart; Mu-Getsu; Day's End; Sun Is Shining; Transition; Song 2; Pretense; Paradise Bird Theory; Most Wanted Man; Le Temps; Kemuri; The Kinetics; Holonic - "The Self Megamix"; Final Home (original, sans vocal); Dig This Vibe; The Blackhole; Crimson; Beyond Raging Waves; Aoi Ame - Green Rain; 3rd Eye; and many, many more.

I totally agree with totr0X: DJ Krush is a pioneer and a genius. There's only one thing that's better than listening to Krushes records: Enjoying his live-performance! I already loved his music but after seeing him live in Hamburg last year I bow reverentially to this masterful musician. Thank You, Hideaki Ishii.

I find it hard to write anything about DJ Krush because i can't come up with good enough words to praise him. This man and his music of without a rival. A genious of our time, but sadly so unheard.

DJ Krush is a pioneer of the term we have learned to know as Hip-Hop. He has marked his plase among the greatest ever lived. From the moment i first heard his deput album "Krush" i knew that this is it, this is the music i want to hear. That was long ago and to this day i still listen to his beats, every single day.

Krushes most important record is "Strictly Turntablized" launched in 1994 on MoWax …
In the early dayz of instrumental hiphop he refuses boring theory and concept shit and does not try to win the attention of "real" classic jazz musicians (asnow on the whacky Kakusei or Zen 12"´s ). After the first track it already becomes clear that everyone wishes to stay in the crates digged by the beatz forever and a day. Just a pianoloop, the minimal drum-track and a few scratches, it don´t takes more to be happy…
Even more minimal is "Fucked-Up Pendulum": mindbending slow industrial beeps + clonks, crazy static noises and randomly echoed hihats are grooving around the corner. The torture chamber opens when "Silent Ungah (too much pain)" appears... "IllTripHop" *smile*
Sometimes this record seems to me like a Breaks and Scratches dj-tool, because of some trax are only consisting of a loop and even called "The Loop"..... but I think also non-dj´s are able to have fun with the instrumentals and dance to this record (as long as you are a cloned giant pie) *g*
