    Ten years into a career, Ramble John Krohn - aka RJD2 - is still rolling out records; his latest, The Colossus serving as yet another progressive step forward for the Philadelphia based producer and musician. A follow-up to his first truly solo effort ('07's The Third Hand), The Colossus walks a different sort of line this time. In his words, it's an "overview" effort; one that takes stock of the various working approaches (live instrumentation, samples, guest vocals, solo spots) he's taken to recording over the years. The result is a big, creamy blast of soulful music, ripe with head nodding beats, pocket horn sections, flawless rhythmic passes, sweet and sultry electric piano, and a variety of guest vocals and rhymes. Quite simply, these are tunes that are fresh, and street ready...perfect for packing with you as you tame the big bad city by the horns. Subways, busted alleys, suicidal cab rides...The Colossus is your soundtrack. A big, bold piece of music that'll put the pep in your step.

    Recently, we had the opportunity to bang some emails back and forth with RJD2. It was a revealing correspondence; one that details Krohn's approach to The Colossus, his move into more independent realms, and his gratitude for having 10 long years of music making behind him. - David Pitz
