STS and RJD2 ‘STS x RJD2’
Philly, stand up!
While the world and galaxies far, far away prepare for the next Star Wars movie this December, Christmas came early for RJD2 and STS fans.
The talented producer RJD2 released a new collaborative album with fellow Philadelphia native STS (Sugar Tongue Slim) on the former’s own label, RJ’s Electrical Connections. RJD2 played all the instruments throughout, save for the horns and strings, and didn’t use samples, save for “Dice Game.” The production overall feels like Earth, Wind & Fire rearranged marching band music, while STS covers topics from childhood fears to a church-worthy hymn about a stoner’s lucky number, 420. This is a duo that could potentially put out a series of projects in the future. And it wouldn’t hurt if they were joined by the Money Makin’ Jam Boys…
Snapple fact #294 about RJD2: He produced the Mad Men theme song.
You can buy the album on Amazon.
