Product Details
From Japan, this amazing turntablist / producer is hands-down, DJ Krush's protege. DJ Baku (pronounced "Bah-Koo") the rightful heir to the unique Japanese aesthetic of production, DJ'ing, turntablism started by Krush 20 years ago. Baku's 10 year crossover appeal has allowed him to perform sets with Q-bert, Killa Kel, Kentaro, Goldie, Krush, D-Styles, and Kid Koala as well as collaborate with innovative dubstep and punk bands. His major performance was at the famous Fuji Rock festival 2006 with bands Red Hot Chili Peppers, Mars Volta, and Beastie Boys. And now American import mixture label N2O Records introduces Baku to the U.S. with his critically acclaimed album "Spinheddz" and DVD "Kaikoo." From electronica, drum and bass, metal, trip hop, hip hop to rock, Baku breaks ground and breaks beats into new genres and subgenres with exiting flavor, tempo and scratching in a musical and fluid composition which makes way for hybrid urban futuristic film soundtrack sounding material infused with heavy metal drums. Add in the flipped out new style Japanese rapping, one must be prepared to witness a new clean-tech sound of high grade hip hop, Tokyo drifter style. One of Baku's most interesting collaborations is with Japanese punk rockers Guitar Wolf in 2006 with a split single called "Ultra Cross Vol. 3" and Rumi, Japan's answer to today's poppy female chanting rappers; but Ms. Rumi comes with a reality check and darkness of Japan's bubble-era high school girls cruising for trouble in Shinjuku. Think Beat Takeshi, Cowboy Bebop, and Akira as the cd captures and inspires your imagination. This record will start with an underground buzz and see the light of day like DJ Shadow once the indie shops pick up on Spinheddz and the turntablism community renews itself on Baku's new sound. Fans of DJ Krush, DJ Shadow, Kentaro, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Mo Wax, and Ninja Tune will buy this record and tastemakers will praise this record as reigniting revolutionary breakbeats. US Tour with Dose One of Anticon and N2O Records summer release of Baku "Kaikoo" DVD will further introduce artist Baku follow up album being released in UK and Japan. The album single is called "Spinstreet." Already DJ Baku views total over 200,000, there is a strong interest in his style and culture which will translate to niche sales. Turntablism revival from the top down.... N2O Records brings you the next sound of turntablism, even Ninja Tune requested DJ Baku to flip their new 12" project featuring Skream, The Bug, and Warrior Queen.
