RJD2 Strikes Back in 2010...

Hip hop/electronica act RJD2 is kicking off 2010 in a big way with the release of his fourth studio album, The Colossus, and a massive U.S. tour. The Colossus is the first album on RJD2’s recently launched record label, RJ’s Electrical Connection. The album is out Jan. 19 with the tour kicking off 10 days before that.

Motherboard’s Jordan Redaelli stops off in a magical realm known as Western Philadelphia, where he finds Ramble John Krohn, better known as the musician/producer RJD2 and the guy who helped write the theme song to Mad Men that everyone loves so much. In the time it takes RJ to assemble and bake his recipe for an apple-raspberry cobbler a la mode, Jordan gets a tour through RJ’s home studio, an enviable playground that includes the Holy Grail of analog synth technology, the Yamaha CS-80, as well as RJ’s enormous wall of home-made modular processors, amplifiers, filters, compressors, and pretty much anything else you can think of in relation to the creation of electronic sound.
