After his latest collaborations with Red Baron and John LaMonica, Rumpistol now returns with a sound that’s both fresh and outgoing, while acknowledging the finest moments of his earlier instrumental efforts.
The first single from his new album, "Away" is called "Asleep" and opens the door to the subconscious mind of the Danish artist – a place populated by thumb pianos, ancient lullabies and microhouse beats working in odd meters. “Dreams have always been a great creative inspiration for me," Rumpistol says. "I think it's an important aspect of life that we unfortunately tend to forget as soon as we wake up."
The lyrics of the song originate from the traditional Danish folk song "Tornerose" (Sleeping Beauty), a source that becomes more apparent while watching the video, featuring a Portuguese girl who falls down an invisible rabbit hole into a strange animated world.
There are 3 remixes of "Asleep" included on this release: the UK's Kelpe delivers an aquatic moog-fest of a remix, Danish newcomer Bwoy De Bhajan adds Amon Tobin-esque snares to his “dreamtech” version while Poland’s Bueno Bros takes the track into tech-house territories.
