From Tonia Samman:
Philly’s own RJD2 is preparing to embark on the third leg of his massive four-month tour, and where better to start it than in his hometown of Philadelphia? RJ kicks things off on the east coast, with two shows in New York City, before heading up through Canada and down into the belly of the Midwest.
RJ and friends have been releasing videos at a feverish pace, with two new videos released in the last month! “The Glow” featured a vicious yuppie Ken doll, wreaking havoc in his endless search for the spotlight and more personal possessions. The newest, premiered yesterday on Spin.com, is the strangely psychedelic, slightly post-apocalyptic envisioning of the song “A Spaceship For Now.” From RJ:
"What I love about the video is how surreal and weird it is. It’s like a timeline with gaps in it that basically forces you to come up with your own storyline or chronology. Or you can just bug out on the big ambience of the synths. It's a perfect fit."

Also, don’t forget the pill-popping, cubicle-dwelling Minotaur of “Let There Be Horns”!

In addition to the slew of videos, Brooklyn-based musician, multi-instrumentalist, and producer Alan Wilkis ( http://www.wilcassettes.com ) has remixed the track “A Shining Path.” Be sure to take heed.
