rump recordings artists
Jens Berents Christiansen aka Rumpistol is a very enthusiastic soul. He releases exciting underground acts on his own label Rump Recordings. Moreover, under the moniker Rumpistol he has released three albums full of melodic and bubbling electronica. Opus three from Rumpistol is called "Dynamo". Here the Dane has turned his ears towards London and added a little dubstep to his humming sound universe. And his eclectic mix of glitch, ambient and minimalism does not deny him also putting accessible melodies in the mix as well as orchestrating strings.
Rumpistol released his critically acclaimed debut album in 2003. The album received airplay by the late John Peel at his legendary BBC Radio 1 show, and several tracks from the album were licensed to different compilations. The follow-up ”Mere Rum” from 2005 also received great responses, and caused Rumpistol to play an extensive amount of concerts in Denmark and abroad. Rumpistol has done remixes for tons of acts: Efterklang, System, I Got You On Tape, Snöleoparden & Analogik among others. He has appeared on Baduns debutalbum, and collaborated with Equadorian artist V8, the singer Tusnelda and freejazz drummer Toke Tietze Mortensen (Yoyooyoy).
Rumpistol has performed live at festivals such as MUTEK (CAN) NO+CH (China), Fusion (D), Roskilde Festival (DK), STRØM (DK), Norberg (SE), Amsterdam Dance Event (NL) and Electric Picnic (IE) plus he has played numerous of concerts in Europe, USA, Mexico and Russia. In 2008 Rumpistol was commissioned by The Danish Film Institute to create a live soundtrack for the Russian silent movie ”Cosmic Voyage” from 1936 and in 2009 he wrote music for a modern interpretation of Hans Christian Andersens short story ”The Little Match Girl”, staged by the Apollo Theater.
In 2010 he was nominated for the Qwartz Electronic Music Award in the Discovery category for his album "Dynamo".
As a musician, Jens Berents Christiansen has a background in different bands, where he played guitar, synths, and sang, but since the year 2000, he has been concentrating on the Rumpistol project plus different commissioned work for TV, theater, film and games.
