A TAV Essential Listening Album.

"DJ Krush is a prime example of how hip hop can save your soul. Krush took his girl to see Wild Style, the first motion picture dedicated to this new artform. He was hooked. Building and buying his own equipment, he became one of the first hip hop DJsand producers in Japan. Aside from being one of his country's pioneers, he established himself as one of the most prolific producers, changing the face of Hip Hop with his experimental beats and instrumental sounds.

Zen is Dj Krush's seventh album and features collaborations with Black Thought and ?uestlove of the Roots (on different tracks, mind you), N'Dea Davenport of the Brand New Heavies and Zap Mama, as well as artists from the Japanese Hip Hop scene. The beats he creates are organic, at times defying any genre-descriptions, which is exactly how DJ Krush likes it.

This album from 2001 hasn't been available on vinyl for years." - Music On Vinyl

"For Zen, Japanese producer/mixer DJ Krush works his way into a vision of sublime, downbeat hip-hop that's a snug fit with the title. The opening "Song 1" is an irresistible slice of trance-state trip-hop, with the cascading notes of a vibraphone and flute perfectly complementing the atmospheric grooves. Krush also continues the collaborational bent of previous LPs, with hip-hop heads Black Thought and ?uestlove from the Roots (appearing on separate tracks), Company Flow, and DJ Disk alongside left-field choices Zap Mama, N'Dea Davenport, and trumpeter Kazufumi Kodama. On these tracks, the beats and effects are more pointed than on the opener and, as in the past, DJ Krush proves he's a stellar jack-of-all-trades trackmaster." - AllMusic
