Starting off their careers as young protege’s to the legendary hip-hop producer Kutmasta Kurt, Rushden & Diamonds first got their start writing rhymes and making beats while digging in the crates of 1980’s rnb and royal orchestral music. The duo’s early productions would eventually make their way onto R&D’s debut release “2010”, a critically acclaimed double album hip-hopera which featured the likes of MC Paul Barman, Moka Only, Dylan Ross (Rozz Dyliams) voicing as an alias and more. Since the release of their debut album, R&D have toured together throughout Europe, Asia and North America, rocked festivals for hundred's of thousands of people and have shared stages with the likes of Dilated Peoples, Dr. Octagon, Slum Village, Black Sheep, Retrogott plus many others. Aside from some notable features over the years with artists such as Dylan Ross (Rozz Dyliams), Kool Keith and Mega Ran, in 2012 R&D created 2 original songs for Sega's cult classic video game title "Anarchy Reigns". The songs Fast Lane and They Came From Underground which were produced by Naoto Tanaka (acclaimed composer of the Mega Man X series) quickly became the soundtrack’s break out singles. Now, while channeling inspirations from their favorite retro music, video games, and action movie culture, Rushden & Diamonds' bring you their highly anticipated follow up to “2010” appropriately titled "2020".

"2020" (Redux) is a fully remixed / remastered official sequel to Rushden & Diamonds' critically acclaimed conceptual hip-hop album "2010". Featured artists on the album include the likes of Kool Keith, Kutmasta Kurt, Moka Only, Dylan Ross (Rozz Dyliams), Mega Ran, Naoto Tanaka (composer of Capcom's Mega Man X series) and more. On the digital release of "2020", the album's bonus track entitled "2020" (Audio Comic) tells the story of both Michael Rushden & Karl Lord Edward Diamonds who embark on a musical journey set in an alternate not-too distant future. "2020" (Redux) also features an all new remix of What You're Used To by the legendary DJ Kutmasta Kurt. It's been 10 years since Michael Rushden foiled the sinister plot of the cunning Lord, Karl Edward Diamonds. Now living a life of solitude somewhere deep in the Pacific Northwest, Michael alongside his trusty K9 sidekick Sandy take off on a late night drive which may prove to be their last.
