Music for Thinking: DJ Krush, Kiseki (2017)


This is something I slept on. Released last year, the sonic guru of a legend DJ Krush unleashed a massive collage of dark conceptual depths. The depths are usually dark. In Kiseki, released domestically in Japan and the UK, Krush employs a slew of rappers from the island such as Rino Latina II and OMSB. It’s steady, unsettling, and progressive. Krush did something he’s never done before as he gives his commentary on the state of hip-hop today, oscillating between trap vibes and his signature dystopian breakbeatish signature, which is utopia. Atmospheric as it is hard-hitting and glitch friendly, Kiseki is one to tune into as you stroll thru AAR. I know I will be.
