The Denver-based producer John Hastings, a.k.a. Rumtum, just released his first track of 2014, “Ruby Dime,” for free via 1320 Records just two weeks ago. It’s a painfully smooth and wistful track begging you to leave what you’re doing for the exploration of a nearby, majestic, and bouncing rainforest. Not a bad start to 2014—download the track here.
RUMTUM‘s recent cassette release Geo Neo was an intensely personal album to make for the Denver producer. So it’s fitting that the first video to surface from the release follows mastermind John Hastings around as he road trips with friends from one scenic location to the next.
From winding mountain roads to idyllic waterfalls, the video captures the adventurous nature of the music found on Geo Neo. Mixing live instrumentation with his penchant for electronics, RUMTUM has created a work that would be perfectly suited to a road trip of your own. Just don’t feed the wildlife.
