At the beginning of November, Bristolian trailblazer Krust released his first album in 14 years. The Edge Of Everything sees him return from his hiatus fully liberated, poised to take listeners on a transportive journey like no other.
It was about 12 years ago that Krust decided to take some time out. The 90s and 00s had been jam packed with acclaimed releases, projects and collaborations, which gained him recognition as an envelope pusher, unafraid of exploring new realms of jungle and drum and bass. On top of this, alongside collaborator and fellow producer Roni Size, he ran Full Cycle Records, which platformed artists from Bristol and beyond like Suv, DJ Die, Tali and Clips, as well as the label bosses.
Now, fully rejuvenated, Krust is back and firmly focused on crafting unique and authentic music. The Edge Of Everything meets that marker. The tracks, though identifiably Krust in sound, are freer, deeper, more intense and realised, but perhaps most notably they feel light years ahead of themselves.
He found inspiration in the likes of Christopher Nolan and Martin Scorsese to help him tell a sonic narrative across the release, so keeping that in mind he charts his favourite science-fiction films from the mid 80s right up to 2015…

Classic film. A bit cheesy looking back on it now, it looks quite funny. How can they get away with the special effects? It all looks a bit rubbery. I remember seeing it as a kid and it was fresh brand-new half man half robot - a bit like the $6 million man. We can rebuild you better stronger faster. What’s it saying about Man's abilities to cope with his environment?
