Ryan Vasta caught a piece of the Art Basel action, see what he has to say about RJD2's performance at Bardot!
Hip-hop instrumentalist RJD2 paid a visit to Miami for Art Basel and Bardot was packed with people craving his soulful beats. RJ set up right in front of the main dj booth, armed with 4 turntables and crates full of vinyl, making this one of the most intimate shows I’ve ever been to.
He was clearly feeding off the energy that filled the small room, seamlessly mixing from track to track, and dancing as much as anybody in the crowd. The set itself was amazing. It included newer tracks from RJD2’s most recent album, “More Is Than Isn’t,” and older classics, like “Ghostwriter” which ended the show. RJ drove the crowd into a frenzy every time he went into a scratching routine, cutting and chopping up tracks. It was truly mesmerizing watching him work up close, spontaneously reaching behind him to pull out a record, and bouncing from one piece of equipment to the next. RJD2 is absolutely a live experience worth having.
