A Samurai sword whose blade mirrors various scenes of life

“I don’t know if hes conscious about this, but I think that the whole atmosphere that KRUSH produces, that very Japanese, somehow samurai-like, transient and sad feel, constantly exists in his music. A very Japanese way of thinking in a sense that life and death are constantly in vision. He may be trying to vanish such part of him, but it oozes out of his music, and I think that’s where my senses reacted to.”
– Kousuke TSUMURA, Final Home Project

I couldn’t have said it better.

Just like Krush

After the sun goes down and it’s getting dark, and the red lanterns light up. That’s when the Runners start work.

A good informing interview of DJ Krush for those who haven’t heard of him. I started listening to him in 1994. The pictures he paints with his music and sounds; I relate and been through.  It’s dark but intriguing and makes you want to keep exploring the work of art. As a youth when I first heard his music, I didn’t quite comprehend but I liked it. It was sounds I never heard before. As time went on I would explore other forms of music but I would always end up going back to Krush. All of the sounds I enjoy and attracted to where all in his style. Learning about his life made his music have a deeper impact on me. You can feel his experiences. You can audio-visually see his thoughts and expression.

Enjoy

A famous set:

I wish he had a longer segment in the movie “Scratch”
