RJD2 is back in action!
Recorded over the past year in Philadelphia—in between STS x RJD2 sessions—RJ delivers an eclectic, thought-provoking piece of work inspired by the city’s soulful history.
“Living in Philly provided a context for a lot of soul music that I had liked,” RJD2 says on the city’s influence on Dame Fortune‘s sound. “I didn’t have any cultural context for this music that I liked—it was just music that I had stumbled across as a beat making nerd. Philly was a place where there were enough people who had the same musical vocabulary that I did, which made the music more than something I had just discovered on my own.”
At 12 tracks, Dame Fortune includes vocals from Son Little (Aaron Livingston), Jordan Brown, Blueprint, and Phonte Coleman—who appears on the standout track, “Saboteur.”
