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.

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.
