This week, online music school Soundfly debuted a new course with Columbus producer and multi-instrumentalist Ramble Jon Krohn, aka RJD2, who invites viewers into his home studio, where he talks about his creative process for crate-digging, sampling, beat-making and more, including detailed dives into tracks like "Smoke and Mirrors" and "Let There Be Horns."

“I think one of the most common obstacles that artists fall prey to is being too delicate with their own music. I hope that one of the things I can do with this course is to provide the encouragement for students to think big, be bold, and be drastic when it comes to their recordings. I’d encourage students to find that boundary at which they might think something is ‘acceptable’ and blow right through it,” RJD2 said in a statement. “By the end of the course, I hope you’re excited to sit down and make music.”
