RJD2 releases a whole handful of new treats in promotion of his stellar new LP, The Colossus. Above, you can see the new video for “Spaceship For Now”, while below you can download a brand new Alan Wilkis remix of “A Shining Path”, his collaboration with Phonte of Little Brother. Updated tour dates through April, [cont.]

RJD2 drops his latest video from The Colossus, featuring his breezy vocal track, “The Glow”. We’ve always liked this song, even though we prefer instrumental-RJ vs. crooning-RJ. Nice video here, watch out for that shock ending…. Tour Dates beyond the link. RJD2 Tour Dates: 02/18 – Columbia, MO @ The Blue Not 02/19 – Grinnell, [cont.]

It seems like it’s been longer than usual since we last spoke with RJD2. Reason being, his last album, The Third Hand, was a drastic departure from what he had introduced to us on his first two solo albums and his various offshoot projects. The Third Hand was overall a quality record, however the difference [cont.]

This week marks the release of DJ/producer superstar RJD2’s iPhone remix app, finally giving fans and tinkerers alike the chance to experience a bit of what it sounded like in RJ’s studio as he worked on upcoming LP The Colossus (due in stores on 1/19 via RJ’s own label, RJ’s Electrical Connections). The application, called [cont.]

To celebrate the official launch of his new label, RJ’s Electrical Connections, the revered instrumentalist has released the incredible 2002-2010 limited edition (1100 copies) vinyl box set, a gorgeous collection summing up the greatest moments of his career thus far. Obtaining the rights to his first three Definitive Jux releases, RJ reissues all three releases [cont.]

9 September, 2009 12:14 am

RJD2 has addressed the fans directly, touching on numerous subjects surrounding his career, including his upcoming new LP to be released on his new label, and more. We’ll let the man tell it himself…. Hey folks, im writing with some pretty big news in the world of rjd2…. I’ve had a busy year, and have [cont.]

20 March, 2007 12:00 am

     Instrumentalist RJD2 has had a great half-a-decade. His two solo albums for Definitive Jux � Dead Ringer and Since We Last Spoke � not only represent two of the label’s most successful and solid releases, but also have been a licensing treasure trove for the producer. Not to mention producing a handful of hip-hop [cont.]

25 May, 2004 12:00 am

HHS: First question, what are the meanings behind both album titles (Dead Ringer) and (Since We Last Spoke)? RJ: Dead Ringer the idea was a phrase that I heard people saying “oh he’s a dead ringer for so and so”, you know what I mean? I guess the irony of it, was that I did [cont.]

25 May, 2004 12:00 am

     It’s been over two years since the release of RJD2′s seminal debut, Dead Ringer, and in that time period, the little known Ohio based producer transformed into a well-known Philadelphia based super-producer. Receiving critical acclaim on his debut, as well as follow-up projects that came in the form of The Horror and Soul Position, [cont.]

8 April, 2003 12:00 am

Within the last year, instrumentalist RJD2 has gone from being a complete obscurity to one of the most popular producers of the moment, at least among those keeping a close ear to the underground (and those picking the soundtracks for Saturn ads). Following the runaway success of his smash debut, Dead Ringer, RJD2 does what any [cont.]

1 January, 2002 12:00 am

HHS: First, tell us about your name, RJD2, sounds like it should be reserved for R2D2′s offspring…. Are you a Star Wars fan? RJD2: yeah, I’m a fan, but the name really came from this cat Gomer, who was my first partner in rhyme. My real name is RJ, and he would fuck around in [cont.]

1 January, 2002 12:00 am

Fresh after wooing heads with his solo debut, production wunderkind RJD2 teams up with emcee partner Blueprint, blessing us with a 6 song appetizer for their upcoming full-length release 8 Million Stories, due out this fall. For those that don’t know, RJD2 is quickly becoming the underground’s leading producer, after showing and proving the last few [cont.]

1 January, 2002 12:00 am

Looking back a few short months ago, when I was arranging the pressing of the now-classic “Rain” / “Find You Out” 7-inch, I had an interesting conversation with RJD2. Upon hearing a few advance treats from his album, not to mention the tracks for the 45, I told him that I seriously thought that he [cont.]

1 January, 2001 12:00 am

Is it me or has Def Jux just come in from nowhere and started flipping out product like flapjacks? Good to see El-P’s fledging label fire off from the launching pad with so much good material. While RJD2 isn’t about to touch the ill subliminals of Cannibal Ox, if you’ve liked the edgy, off-kilter styles that Def [cont.]
