DJ Faust

Bio

“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.”
SPIN MAGAZINE

"Creatively, versatility appears to be the name of the game as far as Urban Assault are concerned. This male/female combination of performers is far from a gimmick – they're renowned as some of the most talented in the industry, having paid their dues and then some.” KNOWLEDGE MAGAZINE

"Every track Faust & Shortee release gets picked up and smashed by the scene's hottest DJs till they become an anthem." TRACK IT DOWN

“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.”
MUZIK MAGAZINE

“Faust puts old-school hip-hop through a Technics blender for an accelerated history lesson that’s too damn funky for your room.”
ALTERNATIVE PRESS

“Faust’s scratches, juggles, and even skipping records coalesce into one giant itchy symphonywith movement after movement of next-level skills taking the listener on an aural voyage through Faust’s ill psyche.”
VICE MAGAZINE

“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.”
