DJ Krush drops 8th solo album "Jaku"

September 7th marks the release of legendary producer DJ Krush’ eighth solo album, "Jaku" (Red Ink/Sony). With "Jaku", the 41-year-old Krush shows an ambitious fusion of post-hip-hop beats and traditional Japanese music. His eighth solo album contemplates serenity in the chaos of the modern world, even as it cold-cocks the headz with readymade club-bangers. Def Jux's quick-tongued front-liners Aesop Rock and Mr. Lif interact with shakuhachi (wooden flute) and koto (Japanese strings) players under the global banner of hip-hop, making for one of the most personal statements of the DJ/producer's career.
