Amoeba Review

10/07/2013

Sample-happy psychedelic beat-smith RJD2 returns with his fifth full-length since his 2002 Def Jux debut breakthrough, Dead Ringer. In 11 years, his style has transformed from tropicalia-laced backpacker soul fuzz boom bap into something poppier, dancier, a little more clear-headed and crisp, featuring many more guest vocalists. His beats still stutter playfully, stepping back and forth or side to side, around the rhythm he wants you bobbing to. He still has a taste for the dramatic and even schmaltzy when it comes to melody and it pays off, his songs always sound huge, epic, despite their often slight lengths. On MITI, RJD2 continues to do what he does well: cinematic chilled out sample-trips, even when they blast at full speed to a dance beat. Reassuringly unphased by current trends in electronic or sample based music culture, RJD2 sticks to his guns, all but ignoring the draw of current revival trends which he might benefit from. Well played.
