about

With this new EP, Talk to You, the pleasing dissonance Rumpistols original style creates has been tightened and infused with a fresh sense of purpose and a sudden directness, with much of this coming from the vocals that dominate every track.
The resulting immediacy of sound and emotion has strong references to soul and R&B, with the essentially elements of IDM, glitch and dubstep alongside, albeit with a wonky twist.
A style which Rumpistol has tongue-in-cheek referred to as “Broken Soul”.

Press:

"Talk to You is a super pleasing music outing. Rumpistol has scalpel-sharp control over each and every tiny piece of sound - but it's an example of how, as with a watch or a motorcycle, extreme fine tuning every minute part is the only way to create a seamless whole, and every song on here is truly deep and engaging. These are not toss-off tracks, nor extended improvisations, but final crafted pieces of post-modern instrumental pop, embodying all the tension, feeling and promise that a flawlessly executed piece of art can evoke in the listener. Like all the best music, it rewards dozens or even hundreds of listens." - Kid Kameleon (US)

"It all adds up to a solid and utterly well-crafted EP whose contents are anything but throwaway." - Textura (CAN)

"Det, der gør Talk To You så fremragende, er, at Rumpistol komponerer en form for braindance-soul, altså en form for elektronisk angrebne sange. Samt at han bevæger sig i en genkendeligt post-apokalyptisk dubstep-verden, men med et maskinel, der ikke kun er en mageløs manipulator, men også en fejlkilde, en slæbende følgesvend, som synes at forsøge at synge duetter med de nye glimt af håb fra menneskestemmerne og deres melodier, som vi varmer os ved." - Information (DK)

"It is an interesting record, one that I have been happy to listen to. I think it would work best as a record to put on after coming home in the early hours, it has the power to shift in a similar way as dawn – darkness recedes, light comes in." - Cyclic Defrost (AUS)

"Lyden er generelt mere transparent, og det giver mere plads til musikkens enkelte elementer, hvilket kun er godt, for Rumpistol er lige så stærk en melodimager, som han er en producer. Der er ingen svage øjeblikke på denne ep, som oven i købet også begaves med et fint og overraskende kontant remix begået af System." (5/6) - Gaffa (DK)

"Ligesom James Blake har flyttet rundt på logikken i den klubbuldrende dubstep med sanglinjer, har Rumpistol nu udvidet sin musik med vokaler. Nummeret ’We’re Not Gonna Make It’ lyser med sin skælvende røst mellem vaklende rytmer og harmonikamelodier op som et centralt omdrejningspunkt for Rumpistols nye retning. (...) Men Rumpistol går sin egen melodisk detaljerede vej gennem natten. Selv om dunkel dramatik præger albummet, gennemlyser han sine kompositioner med både udsvævende synthflader under dub-radaren på ’Through All This Madness’ og en galt afmarcheret orgelmelodi fra de yderste planeter i George Clintons syrede univers." - Politiken (DK)

"The sensitivity crawls out of all pores. A must for all…" - Lowriders Collective (NL)
