Dj Krush + Prefuse 73
Oct 2010 16
Soundcrash presents a night of hip hop for people who like to use their heads…

Dj Krush is the Sensei of Hip Hop. DJ Krush is arguably the most gifted producer & DJ in the world with a superb sense in mixing and composing who’s been lauded for years by both his domestic and the international audience and is probably the most revered and renowned Japanese musician alive. A former yakuza, his life is almost as incredible as his music, an unclassifiable blend of styles that can only be appropriately described as the Krush sound.

Prefuse 73 is the alias of Guillermo Scott Herren, an experimental hip-hop producer whose material often features MCs buried in the mix to become more a part of the sonic texture than a focal point. A very elusive performer, this is a rare chance to catch Prefuse 73 in the flesh.Tonight he will be playing an exclusive Laptop set on the Soundcrash stage.

Stuart McCallum’s use of loops and effects combined with his extensive harmonic knowledge make him on of the most in demand guitarists in the scene today. Best known as the guitarist of The Cinematic Orchestra, Stuart has also an extensive solo career, and tonight he brings to the plate his latest musical project, simply called “Stuart McCallum”. Joined by very special guests, Stuart McCallum takes the Cinematic Orceshtra sound into electronic territory on the hallowed stage of Camden’s Koko.

Masaaki Yoshida, better known as Anchorsong to you and I, is a proponent of some of the lovliest electronic soundscapes you can find, anywhere. Sometimes alone with his drum-machine and keyboard, at others accompanied by a glamorous string-quartet, always a phonic treat – here’s yet one more rising star brought by Soundcrash to you for your discerning delectation.

P45 is a Soundcrash resident dj for a reason: he’s good. With a vast knowledge of leftfield electronic  music his sets are tailored for every occasion with the artistry and savvy of a true disc jockey. With P45 we always know we are in safe hands.

LATE ADDITION: Three times World DMC Team Champions Kireek (aka Team Samurai) will be performing ahead of their defense of the DMC World Champion title. BOOM!

LIVE ART AND CHARITY AUCTION AT SOUNDCRASH, KOKO.

Because having Dj Krush, Prefuse 73, Stuart McCallum, Anchorsong and Stateless playing on the same night just wasn’t enough, Soundcrash have commissioned Remi/Roughe to create a piece of artwork live on the night to be auctioned for charity. Picture this: Prefuse 73 is taking you on a sonic journey of epic proportions on stage whilst on the big screen you can see a top artist painting an exclusive and unique canvas to be signed by Prefuse 73, Dj Krush and Remi Roughe himself which could soon find a home on your living room’s walls. And in the process McMillan Cancer Research takes a wad of money for their cause. Remi’s pieces normally start at £3,000 a pop so it’s definitely worth a look in. Who knows, you might bag a bargain!

  • Dj Krush
  • Prefuse 73 (Laptop Set)
  • Stuart McCallum (Cinematic Orchestra)
