RJD2 The Horror
- Words: Sara Jayne Crow
- Label: Definitive Jux
RJD2: friendly android cyber-bot or Definitive Jux sample-swapping producer? RJ's deft mastering, despite his limited studio resources, place his skills among the caliber of the inhuman android, but the emotion evoked through his music is altogether human. Deadringer reworked dusty '70s samples into a sort of Frankenstein of disparate parts that somehow remained sonically sweet. As a follow-up, the two-CD The Horror is all remixes of that debut. A new "Final Frontier" garners a more listenable rap than its Deadringer counterpart, and "Bus Stop Bitties" finds the Motown era's soul food even bass-ier and tastier. The second CD features live performance footage as well as an interactive photo gallery. The Horror is superlatively inhuman in its quality, much like RJD2's production skills.
