Jens Berents Christiansen aka Rumpistol (born in 1978[1]) is a Danish producer and musician who writes and performs electronic music. He has been releasing music since 2003 and has received positive reviews from magazines such as[2] De:Bug[3] and Danish magazine GAFFA. The latter gave Rumpistol 6/6 for his 2008 album 'Dynamo'.[4]

Rumpistol creates electronic music in the electronica-genre with inspiration from ambient, dub, IDM, techno and dubstep, made for both the dance floor and for sitting audiences.

Christiansen also plays keyboards and produces for the band Kalaha [5] and has produced or contributed to releases from Lukkif[6] & Badun[7] as well as doing remixes of artists like Efterklang, Blue Foundation & Indians (musician).

In 2019 Kalaha won Carl Prisen in the category Best Roots Composer (for the EP "Mama Ngoma")[8]. In 2016 Christiansen co-wrote and co-produced the album "Masala"[9] which won a Danish Music Award Jazz for Best Special release [10] and was also nominated for Carl Prisen in 2018.[11] In 2016 his music was used for the opening ceremony for the Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro.[12] Rumpistol has played live at Roskilde Festival (DK) in 2006 and 2009, at MUTEK Montréal (CAN) in 2012,[13] at Multiplicidade(BZ) in 2015 at Boiler Room UK in 2012.[14]

Rumpistol releases on his own label Rump Recordings[15] but have also released on Project: Mooncircle[16] and Iboga Records.[17]
