RiTchie, of Injury Reserve/By Storm, releases his debut solo album Triple Digits [112]. The album, which RiTchie prefaced in an open letter to fans as being a limitless creative outlet separate from the sonic identity he’s crafted as part of Injury Reserve/By Storm music, is a canvas for self-expression with an expanded palette of production from the likes of feardorian, Parker Corey, AJ Radico, Melik, RiTchie himself and J Fisher. Triple Digits [112] reunites RiTchie with past Injury Reserve collaborators like Aminé and finding chemistry with burgeoning peers like Niontay and Quelle Chris. 

Shedding light on the conditions he made it during which he pokes fun at as an AC unit repairman in his new Parker Corey-directed video for “WYTD?!?!,” RiTchie says his solo debut is: “A collection of songs inspired by Phoenix’s new record-breaking 31 days of 110+ degrees set last July as I was making Triple Digits [112].”

Triple Digits [112] exudes RiTchie’s personality and reveals a bright and fun-loving side to the technically stellar raps he‘s known for. RiTchie expands his sonic identity to include both the experimental and crowd-pleasing, trunk-rattling music he’d hear in a friend’s car. That freedom from the expectations of his prior catalog is on full display on album track “Looping,” a formless single that opens with a verse and explodes into melody backed by production from Melik and an accompanying visual directed by Parker Corey. On “Dizzy” listeners are met with a sleek stream of consciousness bouncing between RiTchie and Aminé poking fun at attention-seeking scenesters in music. The single carries the same spirit as his debut single, “RiTchie Valens,” which was described by The FADER as “tongue in cheek but stylistically inventive.”

Next week, RiTchie will be kicking off his Triple Digits [112] tour beginning with a hometown show in Phoenix on April 11th. From there he will continue with performances in Toronto, Chicago, New York, Oakland, and Los Angeles before crossing the pond for the EU and UK leg of his headlining tour.
