INNEREYEFULL: Blunted Soul EP – Free download

Innereyefull isn’t on Mo Wax but he would have been if he’d made this in 1994. The Blunted Soul EP finds him dropping grooves like Krush (as in DJ) rather than krush-groovin’ like say, Kurtis Blow. For the uninitiated that means breaks for rolling rather than breaks for breaking – if you catch my drift. Reminds me of lounging in the sun back in the day when there were proper summers – y’know – a time when DJ Shadow was an unknown and Massive Attack made good music.

(PRESS RELEASE) The early nineties wasn’t just a golden era for hip-hop y’all! It was also a time that saw the birth of a new sister-genre which languidly rose through a thick, smoky haze all around the globe, from California to Bristol and from Paris to Tokyo. Often instrumental, the aim was simple – to provide the perfect music to…well, let’s just say to relax to. Incredibly popular and created by luminaries as varied as Massive Attack, DJ Shadow, DJ Krush and La Funk Mob, it didn’t so much eventually disappear as drift off to sleep for a bit. Well, quite a long time actually. Over fifteen years later, Massive Attack have a new LP out, DJ Krush is engaged in an international tour and rising talent Innereyefull has just dropped a new EP. Stoned breakbeats and warm basslines envelope the listener while subtle instrumental loops and samples complete the tripped-out ambience from the minimalist Krush-like title track, to the sinuous Be Cool and the hypnotic bass pulse of the aptly named Kickin Back. And the name of this sister-genre? No doubt the phrase ‘trip-hop’ will be bandied about once more though you could search for a long time to come up with a better name for it than Blunted Soul

DJ KRUSH live @ The Electric Ballroom 29 April 2010 – WIN FREE ENTRY FOR 2

Ever watched the first (and only decent) Blade movie and wondered who did the minimal beats that fit so well with Wesley Snipes driving round round a moonlit city in a black Ford Mustang? Step up DJ Krush, a man who, along with DJ Shadow, was responsible for Mo Wax being such an entity in the mid nineties. Anyway, there’s a new LP on the way and Krush is dropping by the UK. COMPETITION CLOSED – congratulations Sam Compton!If you fancy winning free entry for yourself and a friend for his show at London’s Electric Ballroom (where he’ll be supported by Mr Thing & Anchorsong) on 29 April:
1. Riddle me this:
What is DJ Krush’s real name? (Shouldn’t be too hard to find out in a world with wikipedia in it.)
2. Email your answer and your name to monkeyboxing.editor@yahoo.com so that the ever-generous Soundcrash Music promoters can put you-plus-one the guestlist.


(PRESS RELEASE) The Sensei, aka DJ Krush returns to London for a rare solo show to throw down some of the heaviest beats and basslines known to mankind. With an exclusive preview of tracks from the eagerly-anticipated new LP (out late 2010), as well as a chance to catch one of the most gifted humans alive doing what he does best, this is a not-to-be-missed show for any fans of hip-hop, turntablism and progression!
Inspired way back by the seminal ‘Wild Styles’ movie Krush quickly embraced the burgeoning hip-hop culture, and before long was the first DJ to use turntables as a live instrument. He comes at you today as the battle hardened veteran of time-honoured dance floor killing shows across the globe. Expect a live turntablism display unlike anything you have seen before, following on from the acclaimed battle with his protege Kentaro back in October where he cemented his place on the top of the turntablist ladder.

MR THING started his high profile career as ‘the best one from the Scratch Perverts’! Not a bad start you’d think, however since his split with them he has gone on to become about the most respected hip hop DJ in the UK, working with BBE records, Youngun, Vadim, Roots Manuva and just about everyone else! Yes he still posesses the sublime turntable trickery that the ‘Pervs were all about but now, as a major lynchpin of the UK hip hop scene his sets are just as much about dropping the greatest block party anthems to excite trainspotters and the mainstream alike!
London-based Tokyo child Anchorsong makes great music! Plain and simple. Heavy, technical beats laden with synth-harmonies and moving chord-changes, all set to the beautiful sound (and sight in this case!) of his all-girl string-quartet, he came reccomended to us by DJ Krush and the high-accolade is easily matched by his pure, raw talent.
