Ronny Jordan meets DJ Krush – bad brothers

Posted on: November 28, 2008

This record is almost 15 years old, released 1994, but sounds until today very fresh. Former Yakuza apprentice and school dropout Hideaki Ishi started DJing in the 80s and is today better known to the world as DJ Krush. Soon DJ Krush, at this time member of the Krush Posse, broke through the invisible wall between Japan and the outside world. Today DJ Krush is the most famous from Japan and also one of the most famous in Europe and North America, selling twice as many records abroad than he does at home. Ironically he barely speaks a word of English or any other language but Japanese. His albums are abstract and got very left-field influences. The beat is from hip-hop and the intensity of it all takes from many different areas — from jazz to ambient. He collobarated with many artists, from Toshinori Kondo to Company Flow. On “bad brothers” the moody sparse landscapes you usually associate with Krush are pushed to one side as fresh bouncy hip hop is set against Ronny Jordan’s jazz, with wicked deep burbling bassline, gentle guitar, piano and synths. When remixing Ronny Jordan, a guitarist at the forefront of the acid jazz movement, DJ Krush creates a symbiosis between Acid Jazz, Trip Hop, Downbeat and Hip Hop.

Comes with no date of expiry.

DJ Krush has always been one of my favorites acid jazz artists. I bought a couple of albums of him and it sounds amazing. I’ll try this album since i never heard of it, hoping the best from it 😛
