Denver producer and visual artist RUMTUM returns to Bastard Jazz with a new single “Strawberry Moon.” Creating a psychedelic daydream vibe through the track’s lush harp melody, bouncy drums and deep bass, it’s another step forward into the exciting & colorful musical universe RUMTUM is creating as he continues to evolve. Behold an instant oasis with “Strawberry Moon!”
Denver-based artist RUMTUM, a multi-instrumentalist, and recording enthusiast takes a unique approach to melody and songcraft, pulling inspiration from early sample-based electronic music like Fat Jon / LTJ Bukem / Boards of Canada / Four Tet or Bibio (he enjoys showcasing sampling hardware, synthesizers and drum machines) and combining it with the magic of organic instruments in a live setting. Early collaborations with Monster Rally set a tone for instrumental lofi beats to be more of an inspiration, with two Full length LP’s MR&RT and Coasting. His lifelong journey of visual art quickly followed the music as they combined to create a surreal world full of visual designs and auditory wonders. As such, his projects are largely based on atmospheric sounds, field recordings and natural rhythms.
Signing with Bastard Jazz Records in 2019 Brought on the new EP Mirage in prelude to the LP “Isles in Indigo,” with carefully-crafted ambient loops on and saturated synth lines that set the tone and vibe for the record. Whispers from the natural world breathe life and personal experience into the record at every turn and his meticulous production.
