RJD2 – “Descended From Myth” Video (Stereogum Premiere)
RJD2’s 2013 LP More Is Than Isn’t found the Columbus-seasoned, Philly-situated musician in fine form, compiling a bunch of the exultant horn-laden breakbeats that made him a household name circa 2002. One of the best songs on that album was a triumphant instrumental called “Descended From Myth.” The song is a brass-blasting machine, so it only makes sense that its video by director Thom Glunt features what appears to be a brass-blasting machine. Actually, the contraption on display here involves more than just trumpets; like many of RJ’s best songs, it’s got a lot of moving parts. Check out the video below.
