Milight is an album vaguely about the future, peppered with commentary on the subject from Krush's collaborators, of which there are many. Producers DJ Cam and Shawn J. Period; rappers Mos Def, Rino, Tragedy, Ken "Duro" Ifill, and Fista Bundy; and vocalists Deborah Anderson and Eri Ohno add their voices and noises to Krush's metronomic beats and free-jazz scratching. The combination works particularly well on his collaborations with Mos Def ("Shinjiro") and Eri Ohno ("Mind Games," a John Lennon cover), but the album is interesting and consistent throughout. On his third album, DJ Krush has finally found a middle ground between his dark and minimal beat structures and the pop sensibilities of commercial hip-hop, losing the virtues of neither. --Matthew Corwine

Krush cuts it up

"I own two dj krush albums, Milight and Kakusei, both excellent pieces of instrumental hip-hop. But for sheer pleasure you can't beat the experience of his turntable skills in front of a live audience. I checked him out last year in a small club in Copenhagen and his performance was intense. Also his attitude towards the crowd was a sight to behold. He came on to the stage without a word and started spinning and left an hour and a half later bowing to show us his respect! If you ever get the chance to see Nippon's premier dj (along with Honda) be theeere!"

"DJ Krush's Milight is a wonderful hip hop recording. While there is fantastic MC work done in both English and Japanese, the focus of this album is still those amazing beats. DJ Krush seems to possess a talent in Hip Hop that I don't think I hear out of many DJ's. Not only does he have one great beat, but an arsenal of many. He likes to mix a little jazz in there too. If you like him check out DJ CAM and DJ FOOD, two of my other favorite hip hop DJ's."
