RJD2, Oregon’s sensational electronica artist is bringing his signature sounds to the Ogden Theater!
RJD2 (birth name Ramble Jon Krohn) was born in Eugene (Oregon) in 1976 and is a music producer, DJ, singer, and songwriter. He grew up in Columbus (Ohio) and started producing music in 1993. He honed his craft for almost a decade, got a record deal, and released his debut solo album (Deadringer) to widespread acclaim. According to Stylus (an online music and film magazine), “RJD2 effortlessly changes directions and adds unexpected elements to the mix that do more to perfect the songs than to muddle them up.” While his musical style falls under the genre of electronica (a broad group of electronic based styles such as techno, house, ambient, drum and bass, jungle, and industrial dance, among others), it also has elements of hip hop, indie rock, acid jazz (a genre that combines elements of jazz, soul, funk and disco), and trip hop (subgenre of electronic music that originated in the early 1990s in the United Kingdom and has been described as “a fusion of hip hop and electronica until neither genre is recognizable”). He went on to have a stellar career with 9 more studio albums, 3 compilation albums, 5 extended plays, and many singles and remixes.
