Energetic electro-poppers Hank & Cupcakes will be capping off their national tour at Rough Trade NYC next Saturday. Supported by Mother Feather and Crushed Out, this will be a great show for fans of original, live party music!
Here is a glimpse of the process behind the one-of-a-kind Planet Rump shirts currently being created by Chris Mulligan aka Mugs. After applying paint to a group of shirts, Mugs goes over each shirt individually with black fabric marker to add detail and unique lettering. These shirts are made to order for our Kickstarter backers, and will be sent out along with our completed album within a month! We are getting ever-closer to sharing more than a year’s worth of new music with you, so stay tuned!
Here at Rump Headquarters, we are in the midst of putting the final touches on our upcoming 9-track album! The album was made possible by backers on Kickstarter, and as part of their rewards, local artist and long-time buddy Chris Mulligan aka Mugs, is making one-of-a-kind t-shirts. Check out part of his process above. After applying unique paint patterns to each shirt, he goes back over the design with a black marker for the final detailing and type. RAD!
Stay tuned for images of the final products, and the album of course!
We just had the honor of previewing Chico Mann’s upcoming full length album, Magical Thinking, and were blown away by its rich texture and universal appeal. Not that we should be surprised — this dude is a musical shaman, raising us up on his fluffy bed of inspiring harmonics while holding the mirror of true nature to our faces. An inspiration and mentor from day one, we offer mad respect to his majesty.
Check out the single featuring Wax Poetics artist Kendra Morris to start groovin.
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!
