TDJ, the new electronic music project from RYAN Playground, brings together influences of 90's trance, pop, dreamy electronica, and more across TDJ002, delivering a cohesive, emotive, and sonically adept release following 2020's TDJ001.

Lead single "Lalala (Want Somebody)" centers an ethereal earworm vocal hook alongside a swell of melancholic synthesis and bright basslines, generating an ineffable feeling of nostalgia. "Open Air" picks up the pace, bringing buzzy trance leads and minor key piano licks together atop a pulsating, off-beat bassline, followed by EP closer "Yesterday", which fuses breakbeats, vocal slices, and washed out pads to create a suitably anthemic finalé.

I wanted to make something that sounds like the moment you realize how happy you can be with somebody. The kind of optimistic feeling you want to last forever.
