RJD2: Peace Of What

Veteran “beat-making nerd” RJD2 has wrapped up his sixth album, Dame Fortune, recorded while the Columbus, Ohio-based hip-hop instrumental producer was living in Philadelphia. Despite the upbeat, jazzy vibe in the album’s debut single “Peace of What” (with vocal snippets sung by Jordan Brown), there’s unrest within, relayed through the crisp, penetrating drums and repeating orchestral hooks: the frustration regarding inaction towards actual peace in the country. Dame Fortune releases 25 March 2015 from his own label, RJ’s Electrical Connections.
