"The owner of Rump Records, Rumpistol is going to be live and in effect. It’ll be percussive. It’ll have sumptuous vocal work. It’ll be vibes." - Boiler Room (UK).
"Brilliant Soundscapes!" - Laurent Garnier (F).
“His work breathes fresh and open air with admirable confidence, knowing when to pause and when to press on. The balance between fleeting melody and hinted ambience is carefully maintained.. Guaranteed to take you from the latest of nights to the earliest of mornings with the least amount of fuss.”- Ken Hollings/The Wire (UK)
"Dynamo marks a triumphant return to the field, filled with warm electro-acoustic timbres and patchwork beat." - Boomkat (UK)
"With 'Dynamo', Rumpistol has made a flowing and totally inviting album that will captivate all but the most heartless of listeners. Its glistening melodics, brooding atmospherics, oozing basslines and complex micro-orchestral arrangements gel with such harmonic intent that the power of the end result is nothing short of enchanting. Highly recommended to all who require a shining beacon to get them through the dark depression of Winter." - Experimusic (UK)
"A collection of elegantly constructed pieces that constantly slip between the fingers, refusing to stay still, writhing and wriggling around each other. Beautiful harmonic structures topple over spiralling rhythms, leaving you spell-bound." - Robin Rimbaud aka Scanner (UK)
"In drei Worten: Welch schöne Musik!" - Blumberg/DE:BUG (DE)
"både intimt på en mørk og smuk måde, men også overraskende og konstant stimulerende." - Simon Lund/Politiken (DK)
"Rumpistol’s previous work has been easily definable: based in funk, but edgy enough to be IDM. Dynamo is a risky and impressive evolution for the Dane, delving into darker, loop-based grooves and teetering close to *gasp* dubstep, while maintaining his trademark warm, curious melodies." - Mondo Magazine (CAN)
"Like all the best music, it rewards dozens or even hundreds of listens." - Kid Kameleon (US)
"Det, der gør Talk To You så fremragende, er, at Rumpistol komponerer en form for braindance-soul, altså en form for elektronisk angrebne sange. Samt at han bevæger sig i en genkendeligt post-apokalyptisk dubstep-verden, men med et maskinel, der ikke kun er en mageløs manipulator, men også en fejlkilde, en slæbende følgesvend, som synes at forsøge at synge duetter med de nye glimt af håb fra menneskestemmerne og deres melodier, som vi varmer os ved." - Information (DK)
"Rumpistol er lige så stærk en melodimager, som han er en producer" - Gaffa (DK)
"Killer-Tracks von Rumpistol, bei denen - wie immer eigentlich! - hinter jedem Takt schon wieder die nächste Überraschung wartet." - DE:BUG (DE)
"What makes Rumpistol different from me is how immediate the music it." - The Needle Drop (US)
"The sprinkling of vocal samples and sporadic bursts of ghostly lyrical splashes is conveyed smoothly within each piece and a subdued Jamie Lidell versus Burial dynamic emerges from the loosened undergrowth of beats, bass and debris."
- Igloo Magazine (US)
"Når man er færdig med at beundre James Blake og Mount Kimbie, kan man passende rette opmærksomheden mod Rumpistol og ikke mindst hans seneste ep. Den lægger sig fint i forlængelse af førnævnte navne uden at lyde som en billig kopivare. 'Talk to You' har en herlig fandenivoldsk tilgang til de konventioner, der trods alt findes i den alsidige dubstep-genre. Måske er det på tide at skubbe til briterne? Det lader i hvert fald til at være Rumpistols tilgang, og efter at have lyttet til ep'en er det svært ikke at give ham ret." - Soundvenue (DK)
"However you wish to describe it, the EP's tracks are rich indeed, with each distinguished by the producer's well-developed and meticulous ear for detail. Without betraying his allegiance to abstract electronica, Christiansen's turned his attention to soul and dubstep in equal measure for the EP, with wonky rhythms and vocal elements (samples, and some sung by Christiansen himself) working together to produce ear-catching results. (.. ) It all adds up to a solid and utterly well-crafted EP whose contents are anything but throwaway." - Textura (CAN)
"The sensitivity crawls out of all pores. A must for all…" - Lowriders Collective (NL)
