|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), Roddy has worked with countless
top-notch artists, including Q-Tip,
Edo G, Doug E Fresh, Planet Asia, Wordsworth, Kev Brown, 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 his instrumental follow-up Oakwood Grain II, in stores everywhere on March 13th, 2012. With 21 thumping Roddy Rod-produced tracks, plus a few choice vocal guests, OGII is a must-have for beat junkies. As a bonus, he’s also including a copy of Oakwood Grain I (never before available in the US) in the 2-disc set. All together, it's the definitive collection thus far from an on-the-rise talent whose skills won't remain a secret for long.
