Album Review

After many singles and EPs (for Full Cycle and V Recordings) as well as a high-profile gig with Roni Size on the Mercury Award-winning New Forms, recording producer Krust goes the way of "intelligent" drum'n'bass (for better and for worse) on his debut album, Coded Language. Though both his sense for production and ear for great ideas are still intact, the record suffers from a sense of how self-serious the jungle community has become; the title track features rapper and performance artist Saul Williams solemnly praising the importance of the jungle community, never a good sign for the continuing development of a musical style that has seemed frozen in its tracks since 1996. Krust also enlists a female vocalist named Morgan to contribute vocals on several tracks. He even hired a string quartet for the muted classical flair of "One Moment." Coded Language is a very good drum'n'bass album, but it's a shame that Krust didn't focus on his production skills as much as he did on trying to branch out into jungle-fusion.

Customer Reviews

appalled

the above description of Saul Williams' prose to be about the "jungle community" is ridiculous...what an unpoetical misfit the writer must be to miss the point of such profound and universal poetry.

Biography

Born: 1968 in Bristol, England

Genre: Dance

Years Active: '90s, '00s

The co-founder of Bristol's Full Cycle crew (with Roni Size, DJ Die and Suv), DJ Krust is much noted in the jungle underground for his push-the-envelope productions both alone and in collaboration with Size. Born in Bristol in 1968, Krust was raised on hip-hop and began DJing in the mid-'80s at schools and small clubs around the area. His interests grew to include acid house and rave by the late '80s, and a stint in the group Fresh 4 landed Krust in the middle of the charts, when "Wishing on a Star"...
