DJ KRUSH 20TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR WITH SPECIAL GUEST MR. LIF
Saturday, February 11, 2012 at 9:00 PM - Sunday, February 12, 2012 at 2:00 AM (PST)
The Master of the Beat, legendary turntablist and producer DJ Krush celebrates 20 years in the business with a special DJ set for his Hawaii fans. To add to this special night Boston-bred MC Mr. Lif will fly in and perform.
DJ Krush has seen hip-hop culture transform on a global scale. In his native Japan, he’s witnessed and greatly affected its growth from the ground up. His imitable style helped forge the early identity of James Lavelle’s influential Mo’Wax label, and collaborations with Gang Starr’s Guru, the Roots’ Black Thought, and a host of other MCs have cemented his celebrity status among the Hip-Hop elite. Krush has accomplished something few others have managed to achieve: a cultural intersection of styles that expands upon the width and breadth of Eastern influence. With Jaku (which translates to “peace and calm”), this theme is fully realized. A blend of MCs, including Mr. Lif and Aesop Rock, who lay down vocals over the masterful work of Ken Shima (jazz pianist), Shuuzan Morita (shakuhachi), Tetsuro Naito (kodo drums), Akira Sakata (saxophone) and a host of others.
DJ Krush’s importance as a music producer cannot be underestimated. Without him some of the biggest artists in the scene would simply not exist. To commemorate 20 years in music production DJ Krush has started a monthly single series that will run through 2012. The first four singles have now been released, and are available on iTunes.
To this date, he has performed in front of over 4 million audiences in 282 cities across 46 countries. Krush continues his music, transcending all barriers, while leaving distinctive footsteps of his own, achieving ever-increasing acclamation as an international artist.
