Swervin’ With The Krush

DJ Krush is releasing his first album in 11 years. The 2xLP and CD versions of “Butterfly Effect” went up for pre-order today, and will be released at the end of September.

The Tokyo producer helped usher in the 90s Downtempo sound with his 1994 albums “Krush” on Chance Records and “Strictly Turntablized” for Mo Wax Records. DJ Krush’s style is epitomized by his heavily reverbed drums and densely layered jazz samples, now staples of the genre. Unlike his many imitators though, Krush’s compositions have a real emotional edge to them. They rise and fall organically, and embody a pure sense of Cool, full of purpose & HipHop swagger, but touched by melancholy.
