UKAdapta had the serious honour of meeting and interviewing the legendary DJ Krush, the day before his big show at KoKo, London. I first went to see his gig in 1998 and was blown away at the then relatively new technique of live-sampling and beat juggling. I have been a huge fan ever since and could really feel how Irieman was nervous as he had to do the interview.
However, Krush, being the gentleman that he is made us feel comfortable in the presence of a real hero and the interview finished without a hitch. I will inform you all once we have the interview done for the Feb update of our website.
The following day, we went to see his show at the beautiful venue that is KoKo in Camden, London. The show was incredible and we had a great birdseye view over the crowd and it was the perfect perch to soak up the atmosphere in the auditorium.
With other headline acts on the flyer like Herbaliser and DJ Vadim, I really felt a pang of nostalgia and at the same time a feeling of progression and accomplishment. Ten years ago, I was a mere bright-eyed, bushy-tailed student who wanted to seek out the underground music scene and ten years later, I am getting to interview some of my heroes!
