Despite producing music for over 15 years, DJ Roddy Rod has remained one of underground hip-hop's best kept secrets.  As a vital member of two landmark underground collectives (Maspyke and DC's Low Budget Crew), Roddy has worked with countless top-notch artists, including Q-Tip, Edo G, Doug E Fresh, Planet Asia, Wordsworth, Kev Brown, Grap Luva, Oddisee, and many more.  His instrumental opus Oakwood Grain was released in Japan in 2005, and he went on to release the Rawkus-certified Blunk Park Sessions in 2007.

Now, Roddy is ready to unveil the official instrumental follow-up Oakwood Grain II.  An 11-track "solid english oak edition" will be available digitally on this coming Tuesday, Decebmer 20th, and the full 40-track physical version (containing both volumes I & II) will be hitting stores on February 28th, 2012.  "Everyone's been hitting me up, asking when it's coming," says Roddy.  "I wanted to give them something for the holidays."  The digital version contains 10 thumping Roddy Rod beats, plus the soulful vocal track "Keep Transit" featuring Bilal, Finale, and Muhsinah.  It will be available from Humble Monarch, both on iTunes and through Roddy's bandcamp page.
