I've been meaning to buy one of his albums for a LONG time.
I really like what I've heard.

RJD2 creates music that's not easy to pin down, though
everyone seems to try. The Columbus, Ohio-based DJ-producer
explores the same basic formula used by DJ Shadow and Moby,
but his style is more complex and, refreshingly, a hell of a
lot less pretentious. Less bass-heavy than Shadow's 1996
release, Endtroducing... (the album it's often compared to),
Deadringer showcases RJD2's master ability to layer unusual
samples with complex drum patterns, funky grooves, and
original vocals. The '50s horror movie-sampled "The Horror"
starts things off on the grunge tip and then the album's
sound progresses into straight-up hip-hop, break beats, rock
& roll, blues, and more. Songs like the Jimi
Hendrix-influenced "Smoke and Mirrors" and the honky-tonk
soulfulness of "2 More Dead" up the ante, demonstrating just
how far the trip-hop genre has progressed since the
mid-'90s. One of the most enjoyable albums of the year,
Deadringer is an essential addition to your listening
library. --Rebecca Levine

Most hip-hop producers make beats. RJD2 makes dope
instrumentals that you can rhyme over. There's a big
difference.

Dead Ringer is great.. I was a little bored with it after
this summer.. but I gave it another listen and it really is
a great album.. check his "Oxford You Really Owe Me" from
the Soul Position EP.. I suggest u get his album though

yeah deadringer is one of those albums that you'll listen to
a lot for a few weeks.. get really bored with it, and then
go back a few months later and listen to it constantly for a
few weeks until you get really bored with it again..
