Earlier this year, I fell in love with the music of RUMTUM as I heard the miniEP along with some other bands on the HUG Records family. When this tape was being released via Chill Mega Chill (who just do superb work as a cassette label) I knew it had to be mine.
Most Chill Mega Chill releases sell out within the first day of their release and as far as I can remember, RUMTUM was no exception. As I’ve noted before, as much as I loved grunge I also had a large collection of hip hop and R&B cassettes growing up. (Including some rather strange soundtracks at that)
This takes me back to the days of those beat tapes and for that I love it. It doesn’t make sense for me to even be reviewing this, but I am. I love RUMTUM, I knew they’d sound great on cassette and they do. Find a way to get this secondhand or don’t miss out next time RUMTUM drops a tape.
