Turntablist and producer DJ Krush worldwide can be seen as Japanese hiphopvisitekaartje. Since its debut in 1994 are Strictly Turntablized (largely) instrumental hiphopwerk cheering within extracted by hiphopliefhebbers. This led in the past to very successful collaborations with, among others. Guru and CL Smooth. Also renowned jazz artists as Herbie Hancock, Ronny Jordan and the celebrated Japanese jazz diva Monday Michiru were charmed by his dry but effective beats. Meanwhile, the sound of DJ Krush has grown in the experimental and certainly also the industrial. The Message At The Depth start turning at full speed as if it were on a industrial estate. The heat that we of his earlier work are used to, will be added later. The cd ends, compared with the beginning, remarkably accessible. Especially the last four songs, with cooperation with dubpioniers Sly & Robbie and singer Angelina Esparza stand in stark contrast to the ingenious programmed beats that The Message At The Depth opens. But that this portrait of the versatility of DJ Krush.

The RE of MOVLP1153 has a misprint on the sticker. The message of the depth in stead of The message at the depth

Pretty relentless stuff. Think Krush was on a Scorn tip when he threw this together. Don't believe the hype, this is brilliant, his best right after Kakusei.

"Trihedron," the first track off DJ Krush's MESSAGE AT THE DEPTH, morphs from organic sounds to a solid rhythm, as a double bass and, later, a horn, quietly snake their way through. "Toki No Tabiji" is heavier and equally abstract, though the Japanese rap keeps things more down to earth. Krush seems to take a more industrial approach overall to his hip-hop, with the mechanical grind of "Sanity Requiem" or the submarine glugs on "Supreme Team" (which is kept in motion by the Antipop Consortium). The long "The Blackhole" has a jittery paranoia around it, while the cLOUDDEAD guys add their voices to the political "Song For John Walker." Meanwhile, the country-western twang on "Aletheuo (Truthspeaking)" gives that track a unique sensibility, aided, in no small part, by Angelina Esparza's dreamy vocals. Sly & Robbie help out with the dub on "The Lost Voices," while "But The World Moves On" dives back into the jazz. The album ends on the dub of "What About Tomorrow," closing out one of Krush's most complex works to date.

I think this is my favourite DJ Krush release due to the tracks Trihedron and The Black Hole. These are absolutly outstanding tracks. They are both very abstract. The Black Hole sounds like a Chorus/Flanger filter was put on his drum samples, or something like that, making it sound glitchy and stuff, it's totaly insane. The third track is like it, but the samples are less sharp, more repeatitive, and hardcore. Other tracks have this style on this album too, it's my favourite style ever. Also, The Black Hole lasts 9 minutes which is also a great plus! Track 7 is also a good one.
