For me, DjRum is one of the most exciting producers to come out of UK electronic scene in recent years. While his releases are fairly few and far
between, he makes up for it with pure production talent. With many of his tunes clocking in at a good 6 minutes or so, Rum has the unusual skill of
being able to incorporate several musical genres into the same track. Much of Rum’s work, ‘Mountains Pt. 1’ for example, has a strange,
haunting, organic feel about it. With beautiful atmospheric breakdowns, folk melodies and film samples being common traits.
With all of Rum’s productions being at such a high quality, its difficult to recommend individual tracks to bag, luckily he’s got such a small
back catalogue you can easily buy all his releases. However if I had to pick, the 9 minute epic ‘The Darkest Hour Is Just Before Dawn’ and ‘On
The Road 2010’ would be top of my list.
On another note, Rum’s Resident Advisor mix is easily one of the best mixes i’ve ever heard, and for free, its just a no brainer to download.
Absolute flawless mixing and track selection, the mix covers a huge range of genres and is so clean it’s like listening to one long tune. Download
it. Right now. You wont regret it.
