Stream RJD2's New 'More Is Than Isn't' LP
- Words: Leo Maymind
As announced back in July, veteran Philly beatsmith RJD2 has a new album out on October 8 that features collaborations from Phonte Coleman of Little Brother, Aaron Livingston (RJD2's partner in Icebird), and Soul Position collaborator Blueprint. Now, the DJ/producer has made his More Is Than Isn't LP available to stream in full. RJD2's fifth record sees him continuing to mine his trademarked soul-indebted sound while subtly expanding his sonic range. Furthermore, album single "Her Majesty's Socialist Request," a track that splits the difference between street-sourced percussion and a Middle Eastern-inspired melody, has just received a video treatment that finds a trio of dancers battling it out in a slew of Brooklyn neighborhoods. More Is Than Isn't can be streamed in full at Rolling Stone ahead of next week's release via RJ's Electrical Connections, while the video for "Her Majesty's Socialist Request" can be viewed below.
