RUMTUM is Cleveland native John Hastings, most known for his collaborative work in the sample-heavy, electro-funk project MR & RT (Monster Rally & RUMTUM), having already released albums on Lefse Records' WAAGA imprint & Oakland's Gold Robot Records.
RUMTUM's solo work expands upon the tropic-toned production he used with Monster Rally, and dives further into the hip-hop realm than on previous releases. He has recently been featured on big name blogs such as XLR8R, Impose and more, and he has already built up an impressive online following through outlets like Soundcloud and Bandcamp.
In 2013, RUMTUM has already performed at SnowBall Music Festival and Treefort Music Festival, and has shared the stage with the likes of Geographer and Mouse on Mars in his current city of Denver. His debut full-length album, Mystic Wonders will be out September 17th 2013 on STS9's 1320 Records.
