[Watch] RJD2 Discusses Sampling On NPR's World Cafe

Colossus marks a departure from the comparatively traditional pop-rock sound of RJD2's 2007 album The Third Hand. His pop influences surface on tracks such as "The Glow," but his textures are driven by kick and snare patterns that resemble the hip-hop of his earlier work. In a session from World Cafe, RJD2 demonstrates the process of creating sample-based music, using one of his own songs, "The Stranger." (Via NPR)
