KRUSH NEWS VOL. 2  ※Please Share!!

The first of the collaborations we announced in our last KRUSH NEWS will be available on October !
We are going head-to-head with Daito Manabe, an artist and programmer who is exploring the relationship between the visual and auditory, including the new set from KRUSH and the visualization of sound and the auralization of images.
We have shown you music videos and live videos so far but this will be the first time KRUSH and Manabe have attempted to use the latest video technology to create a world of their own, and we hope you will experience it for yourself.
Manabe is one of the hottest artists in Japan right now, with collaborations with Ryuichi Sakamoto, Bjork, OK GO, Nosaj Thing, Squarepusher, Perfume, Sakanaction and others, as well as the Rio 2016 Flag Handover Ceremony to Tokyo 2020, where he was involved in directing the AR video.
We are looking forward to seeing what the world will look like.

KRUSH NEWS VOL. 1 ※Please Share!!

How are you all doing? Apologies for the long silence.
It's been about six months since the coronavirus epidemic threatened the world.
In the midst of all this, entertainment and artists around the world are inevitably in a state of self-restraint.
The same goes for KRUSH. He had been working a lot overseas, so he's been hit pretty hard in many ways.
There was a time when he was on the verge of falling ill due to mental stress.
He's fine now, but if we don't do anything, it's not going to take us anywhere and it will lead to even more stress.
With that said, we will be working on a new album, as well as collaborating with artists from different genres and do things that KRUSH has never tried before to move forward. We will keep you updated.

We will continue to work together as a team to show the world the new version of DJ KRUSH when things are back to normal! Please take care and stay safe.
Don't let COVID-19 get [・・・]

It's been about five months since the emergence of COVID-19. The whole world is in fear and we have no choice but to keep social distance. Many people got transmitted and had lost their lives. We pray for those who past away and we would like to send gratitude and respect to all the frontline healthcare professionals fighting in the dark tunnel.

Today, we would like to send DJ KRUSH's set as a gift to you, to people tired of quarantine, to people that are stressed out, to people fighting with anxiety. Please take a listen!!

We're hoping to see you all at energetic venues across the world after we overcome the pandemic.
We pray from our hearts that you all stay safe and never lose your loved ones.

Team KRUSH

In hopes of the end of the pandemic, this is for you all.

Dear everyone,

It's been three weeks since KRUSH came back from EU tour. He had no fever, cough or taste disorder during the self-quarantine. We're very grateful for all the kind words from you.
Here's a message from KRUSH.

"Unfortunately the world is going through tough times. We might need to face more difficulties from here. How should we face the situation? I will continue to make music and deliver it to you until we see light of hope. The new album TRICKSTER is about blasting out beats aiming for the peace after chaos and destruction."

Hope you all stay well and safe.
--Team KRUSH
