DJ Krush & Toshinori Kondo – Ki-Oku (1996)

Dave Wesley, April 16th 2018

DJ Krush’s minimal instrumental hip hop intertwined with Toshinori Kondo‘s Kind Of Blue lonely trumpet puts me deep inside a Cowboy Bebop episode. 

I had this on serious repeat when I so joyfully owned a vintage 1984 Porsche 928S in the early 2000s. 

Serious driving music for serious driving (or chilling out). 

The lo-fi hip hop movement is deeply inspired by this record, whether it knows it or not.

Too bad this is not available on any of the usual streaming platforms.  I used to have it on CD but either forgot to rip it…  or lost the files.  Damn.

Best regards,
