Following on the success of The Colossus, producer/DJ/instrumentalist extraordinaire RJD2 returns with Inversions of the Colossus, a companion piece of its own unique nature. The “instrumental” album is a time-honored tradition in hip-hop that RJD2 has taken advantage of whenever possible (without an instrumental version of “Magnificent City”, there would be no MAD MEN theme!) However, in classic RJ fashion, he decided to create Inversions with a new twist on the idea: in essence, all 7 of the vocal songs on The Colossus appear here sans vocals. The remainder of the album is made up of 7 brand new songs, so it’s 14 tracks in all! Ranging from banging dancefloor funk to extreme psychedelia, it follows a similar “no format” approach as The Colossus did. Whatever you want to call it, it’s definitely yet another solid collection of classic RJD2.
Like he did for The Colossus, RJD2 launched a new web store today which includes pre-orders of several different exclusive packages of The Colossus. Fans can now head over to RJ’s website to purchase one of five bundles, all of which include an immediate download of the track “The Perfect Occasion.” The cheapest offering is a $9.99 digital album which comes in DRM-free 320kbps or FLAC format, with the next tier being a CD/digi package for $15.99, then a double vinyl LP and digital album for $19.99, and for $69.99 the Deluxe Package will get you CD/vinyl/digital along with an exclusive Colossus hoodie. (The hoodie can be added to any of the packages for an additional $30.00.) There’s even a Super Mondo Deluxe Limited Edition package which includes the Inversions Deluxe Package, The Colossus Deluxe package, the 2002-2010 vinyl box set and a whole lot more. That one will set you back about $186.98 though, so proceed with caution. Check out the official RJD2 store for complete details on all of the packages.
