Indymojo is proud to announce the addition of yet another national act to the Mojostock 2012 lineup….
Los Angeles, CA
Entranced, nearly basking in the radiance of R/D’s sound, audiences are swallowed up in his vibrant melodies, pounding beats, and zealous dedication to the craft. Dripping with angst and desire, R/D’s compositions can be at times dizzyingly beautiful, heartbreaking in their melancholy and dancefloor-crushing all at once. With artists clamoring to share bills and secure remixes, his edgy and experi…mental sound is finding new ears nationwide and beyond, elevating him from L.A. indie auteur to full-fledged underground sensation.
A transplant from Middle America to the teeming sonic landscape of southern California, R/D was first a devotee of the post-punk aesthetic, before being introduced to the underground dance music scene in his teens–fully soaking in the electronic music of the era, and discovering the allure of DJing. Becoming a part of the scene meant throwing his own parties, promoting shows, and cultivating his own unique sound.
Embracing the deliberate grandeur of the nascent bass movement, R/D emerged with an entire catalog of big, brash bass and lush, symphonic compositions. Patient and passionate, White’s sound moves both body and soul. Not content to rework straightforward dance or hip-hop tracks, R/D’s eclecticism lead him to todays most cutting edge artists, resulting in massively successful remixes of Swedish songstress Fever Ray (“I’m Not Done”?) and James Blake’s earth-shattering “Wilhelm Scream” both of which landed him high atop Hype Machine’s charts.
R/D has recently been tapped to join tours with The Glitch Mob, Bassnectar, VibeSquaD, and Beats Antique, and 2012 festival appearances include Coachella, Electric Forest, Lightening in a Bottle, and Boonstock. His “Bay Crush” album – released 12/5/11 – debuted at #1 on the Beatport Glitch-Hop chart, and he received a nod from North Face with his music featured as the sweeping soundtrack to an extreme snowboarding video. His follow-up album is planned for Fall 2012.
