Japanese Noise Meets Japanese Hip-Hop

DJ Krush remixes the harsh Japanese punk rock of the Boredoms on the import-only Rebore Vol. 3 (Warner Music Japan). Disarmingly, the abstract remixes feature little of the band’s famous muscle, but much of its coarse timbres are still evident, upgraded with computerized sound effects that lend the album a dub flavor. Previous volumes in the series: Vol. 1 featured mixes by UNKLE, Vol. 2 by Ken Ishii and “Vol. 0” by Boredoms member and John Zorn collaborator Yamatsuka Eye.
