RJD2

Rjd2's music is a collage of cut-and-paste hip-hop that combines disparate elements to make for soulful, moody portraits of the world. Born Ramble John Krohn in Eugene, OR, on May 27, 1976, he moved to Columbus, OH, a few years later and was raised there. He first busted out onto the hip-hop scene in 1998 -- a time when producers were emerging from the shadows to seize the spotlight -- as the DJ/producer for the Columbus-based group Megahertz. MHz had two 12" singles released on Bobbito Garcia's Fondle 'Em Records and the group was mentioned in Vibe Magazine's History of Hip Hop.

 

In 2000, Rjd2 produced Copywrite's debut single, "Holier Than Thou," on Rawkus Records. In the spring of 2001, he made his first formal appearance as a solo artist on the Def Jux Presents... compilation, proving he could hold his own alongside such luminaries as Company Flow, El-P, Cannibal Ox, and Aesop Rock. Rjd2's debut album, Dead Ringer, followed on Def Jux in 2002. One of the best underground hip-hop releases of the year, it melded dirty samples and a classic approach to song structure for an end result that gave DJ Shadow, DJ Spooky, and Moby a run for their money. Aside from his top-billed recordings, he also provided productions for Cage's Hell's Winter and Aceyalone's Magnificent City (the latter also spawned an instrumentals album, Magnificent City Instrumentals).

 

Rjd2 returned in 2004 with Since We Last Spoke, which blended hip-hop with elements of pop. He then moved to XL to fully indulge his passion for pop, releasing The Third Hand in early 2007. In early 2010, he dropped The Colossus. It was the first album to be released on his own label, RJ’s Electrical Connections. Months later, he released Inversions of the Colossus, containing instrumental versions of The Colossus' vocal tracks and several additional cuts.

 

In February 2011, RJD2 released the album “We Are The Doorways” under the pseudonym The Insane Warrior, on RJ's Electrical Connections. His latest project is Icebird, an album in collaboration with Aaron Livingston, one of the leaders of a Philadelphia-based band The Mean. Their album “Abandoned Lullaby” was released in October 2011.

OM UNIT

Over the past four years, Om Unit has established himself as one of the most consistent and original artists in the electronic sphere. Based in London, the producer first made his mark with a reworking of Joker’s ‘Digi Design’, getting the blessing of Kode9 for a white label treatment. This quickly led to appearances on Fabric’s ‘Elevator Music’ compilation, All City Records and Plastician’s Terrorhythm imprint with the ‘The Corridor’ EP, Om Unit’s first statement of intent.

 

The Red Bull Music Academy recognised Om Unit’s originality, dedication and pedigree, selecting him for its 2011 edition in Madrid. The accolade and opportunities offered by the experience fed the producer’s creativity while growing his public standing. DJ appearances increased throughout 2012 and 2013, including a residency in London as part of Tempo Clash (alongside Kutmah, Kidkanevil, Blue Daisy and Offshore), regular European shows and festival spots, a month-long North American tour in August 2012, a tour of Australia and New Zealand later that year and an appearance at Sonar Tokyo in April 2013.

 

With a solid foundation established through hard work and sticking to his guns amid a dance music scene obsessed with shallow revivals and trends, Om Unit is set to make his boldest statement yet with ‘Threads’, his debut album for Civil Music released in October 2013. Sidestepping the pitfalls of instrumental, dance music long players, ‘Threads’ sees the producer reconcile all his work, influences and interests with vocals appearances from Young Echo’s MC Jabu, legendary urban poet Charlie Dark, Gone The Hero and Jinadu. Since 2010 Om Unit has remixed and collaborated with an extensive list of peers and personal heroes including Mark Pritchard, Danny Breaks, Daedelus, Om’Mas Keith, Fracture, Starkey, Ital Tek, Shigeto, Pixelord, Kromestar, Lorn, Arp101, Stateless, Jehst, Sweatson Klank, Illum Sphere, Adam Freeland, VIVEK and Foreign Beggars. Meanwhile support for his sound has come from Boiler Room, XLR8R, FACT Magazine, Dummy, LuckyMe, Electronic Explorations, Clash Magazine, a cover feature in Computer Music magazine and more.
