Born in 1962 in Tokyo. Dj Krush is a gifted producer & DJ with a superb sense in Mixing and composing. It was the movie "WILD STYLE" that got him into hiphop in the early 80's, and in 1987, he formed KRUSH POSSSE which made numerous appearances in various media as the best hiphop act in Japan. KRUSH pursued his solo career after the break-up of the group in late 1992, and soon grabbed people's attention as the first DJ to use turntables as live instruments, doing free sessions with live musicians on stage.
