DJ-KrustTodays guest, joining us on the Join Up Dots free podcast interview, is DJ Krust who was brought up in a council estate called Knowle West, in the city of Bristol in England, and started a lifetime passion of being creative and inspiring others to shake of their shackles and have the life of their dreams.

He believes that through one on one training and group workshops he can transform the mindset of those that work with him, and give the participant the tools to take the next steps towards realising their dreams.

He can find the root of what’s holding us back and help us move beyond those barriers and make long lasting change

Typically its the negative thinking, feeling stuck or overwhelmed limiting beliefs or resourceful habits that hold us back.

DJ Krust’s method is concerned with the creative mind-set: what it is, how to get into it, and how to apply it to “create” in general, be it music, art, ideas, business strategies or solutions.

 Essentially if you are someone whose livelihoods and success depends on the conception of ideas that our guest can help you keep those ideas flowing.

But if you think we are going to have a great conversation with a life coach, then think again, as he also has an alter ego DJ Krust, who has made many releases on V.Recordings, and with friends Roni Size & DJ Die made the label the phenomenon it is today. 

In his own right, he is probably most well-known for the mid-90s release “Warhead,” which was one of a handful of tunes released in early 1997 which saw drum and bass move towards a more streamlined sound.

So how does he balance his desire for musical output against his desire for increasing human potential?

And are there commonalities that he can see between his two very distinct passions in life?

Well let’s bring onto the show to start joining up dots, as we discuss the words of Steve Jobs in todays Free podcast, with the one and only DJ Krust.

Show Highlights

During the episode we discussed with DJ Krust, such weighty topics such as:

How we both share a passion for the early singles we bought namely “The Specials – Ghost Town” and whatever happened to B-sides too???

How he created his first event and charged 2pence at the door, but learnt so much in how to do it, that he quickly progressed to bigger and bigger events!

How it takes 10 years to become an overnight success, which means alas there are no short cuts…but that is actually a good thing!

How he believes like many that the educational system is flawed and is only created to be able to support a crumbling system!

How he was as scared of the success he was getting, as he was getting going. This is a human condition that we are all inflicted with!

And lastly…..

How you must do the thing that you want to do more than anything else and success will slowly start coming your way
