DJ Krush on Friday 30th March 2018
DJ Krush, aka Hideaki Ishi, pioneer of Japanese Hip Hop and weaver of trippy, smoky, head-nodding beats, will be at the iconic Village Underground to get bodies moving for what will be his first UK headline show in two years.
Known for atmospheric instrumental productions, DJ Krush’s music is darkly mysterious and seriously addictive, completely befitting his past as part of the Japanese crime syndicate yakuza. On the topic of his switch from crime to music, Ishi said “my body wasn’t built for breaking, DJing was the thing for me,” and Japan’s music industry has rejoiced ever since.
Upon entering the industry, Ishi, with his experimental beats and instrumental sounds, changed the face of Japanese Hip Hop at a time when it was dominated by the American rap scene. Now, Ishi has established himself as one of the most respected artists and producers in the hip hop industry, both in Japan and abroad.
