Dame Fortune (RJD2's Blend)


To avid hip-hop fans, the name RJD2 is a household name that evokes head nodding beats, slick rhymes and an affinity for authenticity. With a diverse resume of production and remixes for rock, hip-hop and electronic groups around the world, Massive Attack, Elbow, Yo La Tengo, Mos Def, Prefuse 73 to name a few, RJD2 knows no boundaries. The piece de resistance for the majority of people is his song, "A Beautiful Mine", (ft. the MC Aceyalone), with the instrumental version being used as the theme song for the hit series Mad Men. (There's the collective "ahhhhhhhh" we were waiting for.) 

Dame Fortune is the fresh new release for RJD2, and aptly named collaboration coffee. Besides being a musician, RJD2, aka RJ Krohn, is also an avid car enthusiast and coffee junkie, so naturally, he loves his DMC. For the Dame Fortune blend, RJ wanted an espresso blend that would have enough versatility to also be used in multiple extraction methods. We immediately loved the idea as we have only done one other type of blend like this in recent years, our 2015 anniversary blend, Brown Acid. So expect a rich flavor with subtle brightness of tangerine, softening to a rich milk chocolate and hazelnut sweetness. 

To add even more fun to this project, RJD2 was awesome enough to make a custom mixtape for us! One side features a laundry list of your favorite funk & soul breaks (songs sampled in hip-hop), with the other a synth-laden exploration of epic proportions. Easily one of the best mixtapes from the DMC catalog, grab a cassette version of this masterpiece with your order, or stream it on our Mixcloud!
