Rodriguez Jr. completes his fourth full-length studio album, Feathers & Bones, available now on his own label of the same name, after the release of his album singles Amplify, Lithium, Turn The Light On, Feathers & Bones, and Visions.

His collaboration singles with Italian artist Giorgia Angiuli (Tuning The Moon), Cuban-American singer-songwriter Liset Alea (Amplify & Visions), and legendary UK production outfit Stereo MC’s (Turn The Light On) made an immediate impact, sending ripples across the dance music sphere with their distinct flair and authenticity.

The appropriately named creation, built on rhythmic percussion, submerges the listener beneath changing synthesizers in his immersive masterpiece.

It marks the start of my own label, with which I want to explore a broad range of genres, bridge the gap between popular and niche audiences, and ultimately make it open to other artists seeking the same freedom to soar.”
