“In Faust’s hands, turntablism is as breakneck virtuosic as bebop, as bereft of melody as
modern classical– but way to committed to putting the boogie in your butt for the curatorial
staff to start sniffin’ around.”
“Faust, able to adapt turntables as a musical instrument, creates a dimension of sound and
imagination that teleports the listener into a surreal world of music.”
“Faust puts old-school hip-hop through a Technics blender for an accelerated history lesson
that’s too damn funky for your room.”
“Faust’s scratches, juggles, and even skipping records coalesce into one giant itchy symphony
withmovement after movement of next-level skills taking the listener on an aural voyage through
Faust’s ill psyche.”
“Along with the arrival of the new millennium comes the advancement of music and how the
world creates it. A world reigned by DJ Faust.”
Much like his mythological philosopher-magician namesake, DJ Faust is ahead of the learning
curve. In 1998, Faust made history with the release of the first full-length, all-scratching album in
history, the critically lauded Man Or Myth. This was followed by a joint EP release alongside
Shortee & Craze entitled The Fathomless EP, the first musical release containing Drum & Bass
tracks comprised solely of scratching.
In 1999, Faust released his second full- length Inward Journeys, showcasing his original beat
making skills even more while still incorporating the turntablist trickery he was known for. He has
since released multiple joint albums with DJ Shortee (Digital Soul & Satisfaction Guaranteed),
singles, remixes, countless mix cds & appeared on numerous compilations ("Urban Revolutions",
"Return of the DJ 3", "Revenge of the B-Boy", Ubisoft’s "XIII Soundtrack", "Scratch Movie
