Photographer: Daisuke Ishizaka. As Japan's most acclaimed hip-hop emissary, DJ Krush has been expanding the lexicon of turntablism, loops, samples, and boom-bap since the early 1990s. Taking his early inspirations from the concrete jungle of the South Bronx, and charting them into distinctly jazz-influenced waters, Krush has influenced legions of like-minded hip-hop renegades. STEPPING STONES is a unique career retrospective spanning nine albums and a myriad of styles, moods, and tones. Expanding the very notion of a "best-of album," Krush has re-cooked the originals, lending his distinctive touch once again to tracks that have outlasted musical trends and have become classics in their own right. Approaching his musical canvas like a painter, DJ Krush contrasts soft-focus atmospherics with hard-edged beats. On the track "Duality," an orchestral sample swells over an arpeggiated synth stab--a contrast between light and shadow akin to an aural chiaroscuro. STEPPING STONES, however, is not just for the blunted chill-out set. On the updated "Shinjiro," a slinky double-time bass groove provides a sinuous counterpoint to Mos Def's languid rapping, evidence that Krush has the chops for club bangers as well. Showcasing the full breadth and Zen-like depth of Krush's hip-hop artistry, STEPPING STONES is a diverse collection by one of the genre's true originals.

Editorial Reviews:
Alternative Press (p.206) - "STEPPING STONES is a testament to Krush's longevity, as well as his profound impact on hip-hop and electronic music." CMJ (p.38) - "Krush's finest moment might be the Mr. Lif-guested 'Nosferatu,' whose beat skips along with giddy glitchiness over sinister clanking and ominous whooshes and whispers." Vibe (p.166) - "His work here is foreboding and propulsive, and slightly more abrasive than the originals -- an unexpected accomplishment."
