After 11 years Dj Krush has released his new album “The Butterfly Effect” in October 2015. On Wednesday March 23 Dj Krush will perform his new show at Melkweg, Amsterdam. Few days ago we had the chance to send him few questions about his new work, his career and the future. That’s what he told us.

Hi Dj Krush nice to meet you!

Since the release of your last album in 2004 , the new technologies and media have brought a lots of changes inside the global music scene and business. How these innovations have influenced your music and the production of “The Butterfly Effect”?

I’d been making new tracks and released by online, but it did not connect to the album.
Actually I had played DJ in every country. And then it’s gone 11 years when I noticed.
In addition, release style, it used to be an analog record & CD in the market but currently it has changed to online sales because of digital intervention. I carefully came to prepare for release based on the circumstances of this.

Which are the music genres, albums, artists or events of the last 11 years that have mainly influenced the sound of your new album?

Currently, it has been bear and consumed a variety of musical styles along with the digital evolution.
Amount of information is much more than a long time ago, and easy to access, anyone can participate.
Among such information overload, I think the work that will brush up my personality becomes more important thing. Incorporating the various influences, to sustenance for my own sound which I looking for.
I would have been affected by various things before I knows it. I will lose myself if I don’t say “do not lose myself” to me.

In the “Butterfly Effect” you have featured with artists from different parts of the world and with different musical backgrounds, such as Yasmine Hamdan a Lebanese songwriter and actress, Takashi Nigaki a Japanese composer , Crosby Bolani a reggae singer from South Africa and more. How all these collaboration were born and why did you decide to feature with them?

First, determined the concept of the album, and then I decided the guest.
I simply offered artists who I’m interested in. First, convey the concept of the album to the other party, then received a sympathy and get a response.
After that, we are talking about the sound and filled with details, then led to the final stages for the mastering. There is no border.


The track “Living in the future” included into “The Butterfly Effect” is featuring the Japanese rapper Tha Boss. How and in which direction, the Japanese Hip-Hop scene has grown during the last two decades?

Two of the scene up there. Major scene, underground scene.
Underground scene is much better for me. In addition, interesting young talents are working hard in the underground scene.What people said in the underground scene is more realistic.

What – in your opinion – our global society might change or do, to get the ‘butterfly effect’ that will give us a better future?

his is the flow of a moment that is it will flow from the current moment.
Toward my future, going beyond the “I ” at the moment ….
If I had been able to move forward now, even just a little, so I think this is good and also I’ve done by myself.Children around the world live in the “current” of the earth, must be enjoyed where good and bad place now of the global environment.
And they would be the one suffer a variety of influences from the future of the earth …..
I want to leave something better to future generations. Past, present and future is a subject to carry for human life but I think there is a wish which try to move forward on day by day.

Thanks! See you on stage @ Melkweg in Amsterdam.
