The RUMTUM EPs Exclusive 2EP
A Newbury Comics exclusive color vinyl pressing. 1 Raindrop disc (blue splatter) and 1 Sea Glass Pinwheel disc.
Originally released in 2011, the first collaboration between producers Monster Rally (Los Angeles) and RUMTUM (Denver) was only available digitally and on a limited run of cassettes. This expanded and remastered edition, including three new tracks from the original sessions, finally available on vinyl. Mastered by Nick Carden at The Blue Room (Oakland, California).
Coasting is the second collaborative effort from Cleveland natives Monster Rally and RUMTUM. It picks up where the duo left off on their debut EP, finding the artists sharing samples, vinyl, and drums. Their funk-influenced, beat-driven tracks are put through a globe-trotting lens of Caribbean calypso (Sunbay Hotel), Middle Eastern dance (Veil), Peruvian cumbia (Chicks) and American soul (Coasting).
The title refers to the recent cross-country moves that Feighan and Hastings both made in the last year (to Los Angeles and Seattle respectively). The EP is a reflection of these new locations and has a sunnier, more upbeat vibe than MR&RT EP's winter influenced beats.
The artwork on the 12" is an internationally influenced piece as well. Combining Asian, Middle-Eastern, Native American and Indian cultural motifs, the EP artwork visually mirrors the sonic compositions that it represents. The etching on the vinyl is a Mandala, influenced by Tibetan sand paintings.
