RJ will not be playing alone this Wednesday @ the Summit.
RJD2 will be using an MPC and turnables. If you’ve seen RJ live at Wexner or Skullys, you know that he can work that out well.
Tomorrow’s Columbus performance will be a one-time special collaberation with drummer Adam Dietch from Break Science. Adam got his start at the Nuyorican Poet’s Cafe playing drums for people like Erykah Badu. He at some point played in the Average White Band, John Scofield’s band and with Wyclef.. So dood is obviously in weird lane as a musician. He has done beats for the GZA and 50 Cent at another point.
RJ described Adam as thus via text,
“He’s a drummer that thinks like an mpc. I’m a producer who thinks like drummer.”
RJ knows drummers. Think about how well Sam Brown beasted at Skullys February with RJ.
It’s kinda fitting that RJ and Adam are gonna collide at the Summit a place known for hosting experimental music projects.
Perhaps only Skylab would be more.
When RJ told me that Wednesday’s show will be a real unique musical moment for him and Adam, I asked “oh so it’s not a dance party”.
RJ smirked at that through his phone. So even though this is a musical interaction between drummer and a man on a sampler and turntables, it will still be a dance able party.
RJ and Adam will hit the stage at ten.
Titonton Duvante will play at 9.
DJ Inform and Mister Mike will provide music at other times.
