Dj Krush:
By Mandana Beigi
Stepping Stones: The Self-remixed Best (CD Redink)

Japanese mixmaster/producer, DJ Krush (Hideaki Ishii) was born in 1962 in Tokyo. After watching the movie Wild Style in the early 80s, he was inspired to become a DJ. The next day he bought some “DJing” instruments and became obsessed with the idea of mastering the art of turntablism. His first band Krush Posse was formed in 1978 and gained him tremendous recognition as Japan’s first DJ to perform with live musicians on the stage.

Beginning as a bedroom DJ in the 80s, Krush went on to become a mobile DJ, backing up rappers and hip-hoppers before moving on to his solo production. His tasteful mixings of hip-hop, swing, acid jazz, and R&B has made his trademark sound a global phenomenon. His inventive scratching techniques bring out the abstract textures and the multi-layered beats to reflect the fusion of various sounds coated with the Japanese’s artistic sensibilities. Today, as one of the world’s most renowned DJs, Krush celebrates his 12-year recording career with a double-disc self-remixed compilation called Stepping Stones. In a shift away from the typical “Best Of” album, DJ Krush has opted to select songs from his back catalogue, re-work the compositions and produce a record worthy of his incredible journey over the years. Disc one features tunes from such artists as The Roots, Mos Def, DJ Shadown, and Zap Mama, while Disc two is a collection remixed instrumental tracks including hits such as “Kemuri,” “Vision of Art,” and “ Only the Strong Survive.” Stepping Stones is a great starting point for those not familiar with DJ Krush and a ‘must have’ for all his fans.
