Producer-DJ Ramble Jon Krohn has been combining disparate sounds into his own unique, soulful take on underground hip-hop as RJD2 for more than two decades. And in addition to his work with others, RJD2 (above, the video for “The Sheboygan Left”) also does his own thing as a singer-songwriter and engaging performer. Recorded in Philadelphia, his eclectic sixth studio album, Dame Fortune (stream it below), which includes guests like Son Little, came out last year. “Jumbling Krautrock, ’70s electronica and Philly soul at its brightest, Dame Fortune is producer RJD2’s grandest solo record since his 2002 debut,” raved AllMusic. “Dame Fortune is a culmination album with an artist’s evolution pushing things forward with all his strengths in tow.” Check out those strengths live when he returns to New York City on Friday night at Brooklyn Steel.
