BASS: DJ Krush to release his first-ever DVD set, 3-disc ‘History of DJ Krush’
Edited Press Release

On September 18, acclaimed Japanese producer/turntablist DJ Krush will offer up his first ever DVD entitled "History Of DJ Krush." The collection encompasses a whopping three DVDs and features every DJ Krush music video to date along with two documentaries.

DJ KrushThose who are familiar with DJ Krush’s past work know that each release is created with a sense of high artistic value. Beyond the three discs in History Of DJ Krush you will find a package complete with gold foiled packaging and beautiful photographs that document this legendary artist’s career. It’s really a site to behold.

History Of DJ Krush traces DJ Krush’s path from the recording of his 1995 album "Meiso" through to his 2006 world tour. Throughout the DVDs, you’ll see never-before-seen footage of DJ Krush in many different situations that helped to define his career. One of the standout moments is a DJ set performed on a specially-constructed stage on the rooftop of a building in Tokyo; shot in November 2006 exclusively for this DVD, amid his world tour. This is the most intimate look into DJ Krush’s career that’s ever been previously available.

The Japanese saying "SUIMOU TSUNENIMASU" is translated to mean "There’s no end to training." The saying derives from a legendary sword called Suimou-ken and legend has it that the sword cut everything that passed its way. Yet, even this finest sword would become blunt if it wasn’t constantly polished. There’s no end to training. You must keep on disciplining yourself. Once you’ve mastered something, you have to work even harder, this time to teach, to keep your craft polished, to keep your feet on the ground, and to break out of habit. DJ Krush’s message for this DVD set is "KEEP GOING" which resonates with this saying.

DJ Krush will celebrate the release of History Of DJ Krush with a full North American tour this October, including San Francisco, Hollywood and New York City, among others.


Born in Tokyo, Japan, DJ Krush is a gifted producer & DJ with superb senses of both DJing and music composition. It was the movie "Wild Style" that got him into hip hop in the early 80's and in 1987 he formed Krush Posse which made numerous appearances in various media as the best Hip-Hop act in Japan. DJ Krush, whose birthname is Hideaki Ishi, began pursuing his solo career in late 1992. He soon garnered attention for being the first DJ to use turntables as live instruments, doing free sessions with live musicians on stage.

DJ Krush released his first album Krush in January 1994 and has since released eight more artist albums. DJ Krush is known for adding his special "Japanese Flavor" to underground Hip-Hop and he is considered one of the pioneers of the mid-90’s Downtempo Electronica and instrumental Hip-Hop scenes. DJ Krush was also the first Japanese artist signed to James Lavelle’s influential Mo Wax label.

Aside from his outer national activities as producer, remixer and DJ, he constantly expands his field from soundtracks for films, TV dramas & commercials to live sessions with various musicians that transcends music genre.
