Soundcrash proudly presents one of the world’s most legendary producers. A man without whose influence many of the biggest electronic artists taking the world by storm these days would simply not exist. DJ Krush returns to London for an all-too-rare showcase of his unique brand of dark, multi-textured beats. An unmissable show from a true legend in the game.

Described by Flying Lotus as his main early influence, DJ KRUSH’s brand of instrumental Hip Hop took the genre to a whole different level, an influence that is still felt today in the vast swathe of West Coast Hip Hop championed by the Stones Throw and Brainfeeder crews as well as new acts of the caliber of Shabazz Palaces or Ratking. Moving away from the I-Can-Scratch-Faster-Than-Thou contests turntablism had become in the States, DJ Krush focused on the musicality the medium offered and laid the foundation for a new generation of sounds that would later be known as Trip-Hop and the myriad micro-scenes that came out of that era. Today, as relevant as he ever was, DJ Krush tours the world sparingly, but when he does he delivers what can only be described as a masterclass in layering, beat manipulation and generally ripping places to pieces in the best possible way. Come pay your respects to the Sensei, you won’t regret it.

Joining the legend from the far East will be a legend from closer to home. DJ FOOD’s current incarnation is headed by Ninja Tune stalwart Strictly Kev, designer, producer vj and dj extraoirdinaire who encapsulates the Ninja Tune ethos to perfection in his eclecticism, vast musical knowledge, well honed skills and forward thinking ways, always keeping an eye on the dancefloor to make sure no one is left unsatisfied. A real treat to the senses every time.

Live support comes from Tokyo born Masaaki Yoshida, better known to you and I as ANCHORSONG, who equipped with his mpc, and keyboards creates musical landscapes right in front of your eyes. A true technician Anchorsong’s sets are in constant evolution, and with a new album in the horizon you can expect a load of new material on the night.
