Biography

Krust or DJ Krust (real name Kirk Thompson, born 1968, Bristol, England) is an English drum and bass producer and DJ who is part of the Bristol based Reprazent collective, as well as releasing his own solo material such as "Burnin" which was released on Kickin Records.

Krust was interested in hip hop, acid house and rave music as a youth, and was a member of the group Fresh 4, which reached #9 of the UK Singles Chart in late 1989 with "Wishing on a Star", but did not release another record.

In 1994, Krust along with Roni Size produced "Witchcraft" an early drumfunk track. He is most famous in his own right for "Warhead" (1997). "Warhead" has been remixed several times by both Krust and other artists. Krust is also known for his 1996 release "Angles" on V Recordings and "True Stories" released on Talkin' Loud in 1998. He has had two minor hits in the UK Singles Chart; these were "Coded Language" (1999) featuring Saul Williams, and "Snapped It" (2002). They peaked at #66 and #58 respectively, each spending one week in the chart.
