5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 15 Oct 2002
Format:Audio CD
DJ Krush's forst album is a mix of heavy beats, chilled trumpets and smooth female singers.
Keeping The Motion's sax driven beats over a nince female vocal are a good sign of things to come, with Roll and Tumble's harsh bass and tinkly piano another excellent example of Krush's many talents. Big City Lover is another example of a great singer and superb piano chorus that make this album on of, if not his best works.
But for me, it's On the Dub-ble's haunting sax and Ruff-Neck Jaw's pacy jazz that make this album amazing.
Buy this album for:
Pacy, upbeat hip-hop breaks
A truly amazing trumpet track
Great female vocals
Don't buy it:
If you don't like hip-hop style music

5.0 out of 5 stars krush inspired jazz'n hiphop to sell your soul for 17 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is amazin, kickintheteeth, jazz, breaks, hiphop beats - totally recked!! After buyin Code4109 about a year ago I finally got round to getting some earlier Krush, and was I dissappointed - nah! Krush is a legend, fact! All tracks on this are hybrid, jazz'n hiphop masterpieces that draw on trumpet, saxophone, 3 of the best female vocals I've heard this year and more than a handful of perfectly chosen samples. Not as much scratching as I thought ther'd be - but not necessarily a bad thing. Five stars!!!

Just one word to describe this cd: incredible. DJ KRUSH is a real music genius because he is able to fuse different parts and different sounds into something incredibly compact and amazing to hear! I'm not promoting this artist, I just want to thank my friend Shiva that made me discover this very particular and special kind of music.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pure Cheese 27 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD
I have to post a review here as this is probably the worst album in the DJ Krush stable I have ever had the misfortune to actually buy (upon its release).

The lyrics are terrible, the beats clunky and at import prices this album really is not worth the money. I cannot understand why this has received such rave reviews.

I have followed DJ Krush for a long while and can whole heartedly recommend every album he has since produced bar this one. If you want great beats, excellent loops and a sound still as crisp today as it was when released I can recommend any of the following: "Meiso", "Milight" and "Holonic: The Self Megamix."

If you want the good jazz album he produced then purchase Ki-Oku where he collaborated with trumpeter Toshinori Kondo. Seminal.

I cannot emphasise this enough, give this atrocious piece of trash a wide berth.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest moments in Electronic-oriented Jazz! 11 Aug 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
From the first 50 second mix, you know this Japanese mixer of beats and scratches holds a special talent above us all. Enticing the skills of Monday Michiru on vocals for 'Keeping the Motion' on track 2; a fantastic sound that puts the DJ in the back seat holding a flowing and steady beat. Most other tracks are interesting twists of jazz and blues blended perfectly with the beat master Krush. Guitar, trumpet, piano, vocals, bass, sax, flute all collide with simplistic ingenuity that the listener often gets lost in the beat my the melodies of the cameo instrumentalists. 'Ruff-Neck Jam' exemplifies this in the album's conclusion with a mix classic enough to be on the Blue Note label. 'Into the Water' involves a classic/jazz guitarist who supports the hard-driving beat with a rhythym that seems it is actually under water. 'Edge of Blue' is another jazz-based orchestration with smooth bass lines and crashing trumpet squelches that sear the soul. 'Big City Lover' is ano! ther of the vocal elements that lose the listener in the steady beat, while immersed in Sonya Vallet's beautiful lounge-style melody.
If you like your jazz hard, heavy with a slight of R & B, and hip-hop, this is a must for your collection.
Combining experimental minute-long excerpts to tease the ears, Krush never strays from that pounding jazz sound that can move any audience onto their feet.
Other personnel include Kim Shima on piano, Takeharu Hayakawa on wood bass, Carla and Sonya Vallet on vocals, Kazufumi Kodama and Nobutaka Kuwabara on trumpet, Osamu Marumoto on bass, Akihiro Ishiwatari on guitar, Koichiro Samukawa on alto sax and flute, DJ Hide and DJ Red on turntables, with samples from Ernie Hines and The Gil Evans Orchestra.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite impressed, one of the better Krush Lp 22 Aug 2005
By Ryan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Krush is a very consistant producer. He may not cut the most flashy stuff you will ever hear, but he is much more consistent and covers a lot of ground. His first LP is a sleeper classic. Some of the songs will sound familiar even on the first listen, like it was supposed to happen. It's a recording that makes more sense to me than "Message at the Depth" and "Zen". It is more consistent throughout. There are standout tracks, although it depends on your taste which are your favorites. I particularly like the dark jazz inspired hip hop tracks, which is most of this lp. If you feel like kicking back one night and have a few cold ones or do whatever you do when relaxing, go ahead and order this to accompany yourself, it's awesome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Krush's best... 20 Mar 2002
By Jazzfudgercizer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
There is no doubt that this album is one of Krush's best works. With a sound unique from the rest of his stuff, "Krush" gives you a taste of DJ Krush's early vibes. Jazzy, headnodding beats perfect for chilled, late night hours. The creativity put into the production and sequencing is flawless, giving birth to a perfect combination of downtempo, dub, and hiphop mixed with just enough jazz to call it smooth. Also check out the "HipJapHop Project", "ColdKrushCuts", and "Strictly Turntablized" for more of DJ Krush's best sounds. Headphones recommended...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest CD I have ever owned 29 Dec 2001
By A. Berman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I don't know of any other artist who has been able to master the art of blending tranditional jazzy horns and electronic beats as well as Krush does. He has a way of doing it with an almost ethnic flavor thats hard to discribe.
Anyone who has listened to this CD has fallen in love with it. DJ Krush's other stuff is great, but this is exponetially better then his, or any other Acid Jazz artist.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid but only for enthusiasts 22 Feb 2008
By Jorge Alvarado - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This Krush album is quite good, however it's not his best effort. I might be holding him to higher standard. It is his first major release so you hear traces of the genius that would come years down the road. Personally I think its missing something. Start with Meiso and Millight.

Keeping the Motion, Into the Water and especially Big City Lover are standouts.
