RJD2 is Ramble John Krohn, a hip-hop producer. RJD2 was born in Eugene, Oregon, and raised in Columbus, Ohio. Until recently, he was part of the Definitive Jux label and produced tracks for many of its artists, as well as having a solo career. In 2006, RJ “ditched hip-hop” for the indie-rock label XL, releasing The Third Hand in March 2007.
From 1998 to 1999, he saw success blossom as DJ/producer for the Columbus-based group the Megahertz, with two twelve-inch singles on Bobbito Garcia’s legendary NY label, Fondle ‘Em Records. This explosive entrance to the underground hip-hop scene gave way to shows from Europe to Japan, not to mention garnering mention in Vibe magazine’s “History of Hip-Hop” historical volume. Opening doors outside of the east coast, the MHz went on to appear on the Bay Area’s ABB records compilation, Always Bigger and Better, Volume 1. Their contribution (entitled “This Year”) was voted best track on the ABB website, while competing against major label heavyweights such as Dilated Peoples and Defari.
