Press Release :
Japanese turnatable legend DJ Kentaro returns with a pair of remixes re-establishing his impeccable d&b credentials.

First up, French turntablist-producer (he makes the bespoke breaks with which DJs go on to win numerous DMC and other battles) Le Jad takes "Trust" and builds from a filtered-out roots reggae into an ever-changing roll out that takes in everything from brass stabs to funk guitar and makes up for what it lacks in subtlety with pure, wide-eyed energy.

Next, the Qemists do what they do best on their re-fix of "Rainy Days" (featuring New Flesh). They dominate. From the moment the bass drops you know you’re powerless to resist. You may as well practice the "stepper’s pogo" and be done with it. Heavy heavy.

Kentaro is best known as a phenomenal turntablist and former DMC World Champion, but on this debut album, "Enter," he was more concerned with showing his muscle as a music producer. Here, he and his collaborators just shows their muscle. Trust.
