5.0 out of 5 stars The New Kid On The Block, 23 Jan. 2003
This review is from: Deadringer (Audio CD)
I Saw RJD2 when he supported Shadow this year and bought his album at the next opportunity. You're always looking, when you buy CD's, for albums which are right in every respect (at least I am). An album which you know you can listen to over and over again without ever getting bored of it, whilst still enjoying every track. Very few albums ever achieve this but Deadringer has.
RJD2 is essentially instrumental Hip-Hop similar to DJ Shadow. However, this is more up-beat (though no less powerfull) containing a complex mish mash of sounds and influences (funk, hip-hop, jazz, soul, breakbeat) which he uses to craft his own UNIQUE style. An impressive instrumental groove throughout the album is offsett by tracks Final Frontier, F.H.H and June (in that order) which have guest rappers on them. F.H.H. is a truly great Hip Hop tune.
Deadringer is contains music to make you want to jump about and more introspective tracks. It combines baddass full on Hip-Hop with funky as hell instrumental mayhem. Similar(ish) artists are DJ Shadow (obviously), The Poets of Ryhthym and possibly DJ DSL (G-Stoned). Although to be fair, there is nothing else like this out there.
Buy this Album
