The sample-based IDM of rjd2 (FKA RJD2) has evolved in recent years to take advantage of the producer’s R&B and singer-songwriter-y tendencies. His 2010 LP The Colossus featured vocal cameos from Kenna and Aaron Livingston, and now the latter has joined RJ full time in a new project called Icebird. The Philly duo’s debut The Abandoned Lullaby is out this fall and promises art “that portrays the dichotomies of a ‘balanced’ human experience.” Download their soulful first single “Going And Going. And Going” below.
The Abandoned Lullaby is out 10/11 on Electrical Connections.
