What up Rump Nation! The past few months have been sizzling as we continue to pour our hearts, souls and hours into our upcoming album. Each track DJ Tantric produces is doper and fresher than the one before, and taking our time is proving to be the best method for a killer result. With many tracks in the adept hands of Phil Moffa at Butcha Sound, we just have a few more to lay down.
In the meantime, we’ve been keeping up on our DJ game. We just released Planet Rump Radio #7 today: an eclectic booty-poppin mix that’s part NYC underground electro mixtape, part twerk-out mix, part sampler of the latest releases by our favorite major label influences, plus a few bangin remixes thrown in for good measure. So put on your booty shorts, get in front of a full length mirror, crank this mix and warm up to summer! Plus, episodes #1-6 are up on our Soundcloud awaiting your ears, comments, and (free) downloads!
We’ve also been tearing up the NYC party scene with our tag team DJ sets. We helped the party-loving friends and family of B-Reel warp their new NYC offices into the set of MTV’s The Grind circa 1994. We celebrated Chappo’s record release and kicked off their U.S. tour with a basement get-down at Dominion. And coming up, don’t miss DJ Tantric at Sullivan Hall on June 1 with SNAKATAK and Tessa G. and Dynasty Electric!

Thank you to all our supporters on Kickstarter for making our dreams come true! We surpassed our goal and raised $2,528 to record our next album, and we’ve been getting busy at Butcha Sound Studios, Manhattan since mid-January. Using a spaceship console-esque mixing board and analog gear to get the juiciest sounds in the universe, owner/engineer/producer Phil Moffa is taking our tracks to the next level. We are so pumped at how the first few songs are sounding, and we can’t wait to share them with you! For now, we can give you a little taste of the studio experience with some snapshots. Peace and love from Planet Rump.
We are ready to record a NEW ALBUM!
…But we can’t do it without your help!
We still have a lot of fundraising to do in order to make the project happen! That’s why we made this really awesome PLANET RUMP KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN to help get the word out about the album and our fundraising goals!
Check out our AWESOME video that features cameos from members of fellow electro bands Great Tiger, Tayisha Busay, and Vinyl Life! Get a load of all the crafty rewards we are giving out for each donation level! You’ll even get to meet our guest artist Chris Mulligan and take a tour of Butcha Sound Studios where the magic will happen! To get a taste of the new music to come on the album, check out our single Daydreams.
If you’re as excited about this project as we are, please help us spread the word to anyone you know who may be interested in supporting! All we want for Christmas this year is the chance to record some solid gold for all you good people 🙂
We’ll keep you updated on our progress and hope to see you again soon!
Hey rump-shakers, good news! We just got asked to perform live this Saturday at Cafe Orwell (247 Varet St in Bush-burg). Another Disco Mike production, this show will most definitely get hot and sweaty real quick! Come check out our brand-new live set, which now combines our original dance jams with our fun-loving DJ set! It’s a non-stop body-rocking booty odyssey, so come rejoice! We hit the stage at 9pm. See you on the dancefloor!
Also, video and photos from Tuesday’s rager at Fat Baby coming soon, but until then, here are some stills to get a taste of the mayhem…
Things are really starting to heat up here on Planet Rump. Freshly inspired and empowered by our mecca to Burning Man, our proverbial pot of water is on the brink of boiling and will soon be spilling over with tons of new music! We are days away from releasing our new single Daydreams, and soon we’ll be getting back into the studio, recording and mixing our upcoming album due out in early 2012! In the meantime we’ll be shooting the Daydreams music video and remixing tons of jams, delivering them straight to the dancefloor. We also have a few live and DJ gigs lined up (check the right column >> ). So stay tuned, we’re about to serve up some brand-spankin-new funk for that rump!
Perpetual love to our community of artists, musicians, supporters and gurus: we couldn’t do it without you.

Come sweat it out this Thursday, July 28 at Legion’s new monthly dance party, LEGION OF BOOTY. Planet Rump will be DJing booty/electro/house/funk in the front room from 10 to 4 while simultaneously hosting Earth’s brandest newest live electro acts in the back room. We are proud to present the debut of Tessa Greenberg’s solo project (of Tayisha Busay), Preston Reset, and Jonathan and Bpro! Wear short shorts or spandex to get in the back for $3! (regular cover for the bands is $5, the front room DJ party is free)

DJ Lorant will be holding it down between sets. We go on at 10:30, but these electro stars are not to be missed! Catch them all from 9-12 at Fat Baby.
We can’t wait to break a sweat or two with you!
