It's been a while, this is DJ KRUSH.
COVID is still not under control and I haven't been able to go overseas or perform in Japan.
I can't wait to play in front of you all.

In the meantime, TRICKSTER, an album that we couldn't deliver to you due to cancellation of its release tour, can now be released in limited quantities from a French company.
The vinyl can be purchased from anywhere in the world, so please check it out.

The 30th anniversary of my solo career will begin later this year.
I hope COVID is under control by then and I look forward to seeing you all in good health!

Heads up!!
TRICKSTER limited pressing available now for pre-order at the following link.

Due to the pandemic, we had to call off some of the "TRICKSTER" release shows in 2020.
The vinyl was only available to the fans who came to the event.
And now, a limited number of the album will be available for purchase!!

This album is the first one in a long time that KRUSH has worked on beats all by himself.
It was made by re-mastering the tracks that were released monthly in 2019.

This is a must have for all vinyl fans.
Get your hands on it before it's too late!
