”Rum” is the Danish word for space or room.
Since 2003 Jens B. Christiansen has been producing challenging yet melodic electronic music under the moniker Rumpistol, so far resulting in 4 albums, 2 EPs plus lots of remixes of acts like Efterklang, System, Analogik & Blue Foundation. Rumpistol has performed his detailed signature sound at festivals and venues all across Europe, North America, Mexico, China and Russia. He has created game and tv scores, live soundtracks and appeared in various improvised setups and constellations with artists such as Red Baron, F.S. Blumm & Kohei Matsunaga.
In 2010 he was nominated for the Qwartz Electronic Music Award in the Discovery category for his album “Dynamo” and in 2012 he released the album “Floating” – a widely acclaimed collaboration with the Danish vocalist Red Baron that further explored the post dub-step vocal territories opened up on 2011’s Talk To You EP.
With tighter song structures, intimate lyrics and the Baron’s ecstatic vocal projections, the two create a parallel world in which the domestic breakdowns of wintry Copenhagen are filtered through surreal sun-bleached Californian dreams, resulting in a robotic and hypnagogic hybrid of electronic soul.
Since 2003 Jens B. Christiansen has run the label Rump Recordings, showcasing mainly Danish electronic artists through a release span of more than 20 albums.
Rumpistol is currently signed to the renowned Berlin-based label Project: Mooncircle that also houses artists like Robot Koch (DE), fLako (DE) & Sweatson Klank (US).
