RJD2: Spin Master

January 14, 2011

Local Philadelphia musician, producer, DJ and label owner RJD2 will breakdown his production process during a discussion on Wednesday, January 19th at 6 PM. Sponsored by the Music Industry program, RJD2 will hold an open forum that will feature multi-track recordings of select songs from his six released LPs along with material from his new artist ‘The Insane Warrior,’ due out later this year.  RJD2 will detail his process by peeling back the layers of ideas and techniques he incorporates into his songwriting, production and mixing.   The event will be in Stein Auditorium, 111 Nesbitt Hall (3215 Market St.).

RJD2 recently started his own label, RJ’s Electrical Connections, after an accomplished tenure with Definitive Jux, created by El-P, originally of Company Flow.  The discussion will also focus on RJD2’s move from Definitive Jux and his business strategy for creating his own label.  Well sought after by rappers such as Aceyalone, Copywrite and Vast Aire, as well as award-winning TV shows like Mad Men, RJD2 has emerged as one of electronica’s hottest producers. He has been featured in the New York Times, ABC News, Billboard, Rolling Stone, and the Philadelphia Weekly and continues to tour the world in support of the music he creates. This event is free and open to the public.
