This year Danish producer Jens Berents Christiansen aka Rumpistol returned with a new album titled Drops, out via his own label Rump Recordings. He will release a remix album titled Drops Remixes that is out on January 18th, 2018. ISAN (Robin Saville and Antony Ryan) remixed the opening track “Circular Drops“.
Antony Ryan of ISAN says about the track: “Space has always been a little part of Isan, and I’ve always had a special fondness for the little probes and robots we send out to the farthest and loneliest parts of our Solar System. As I was working on the remix of Rumpistol’s gorgeous “Circular Drops”, NASA was live-streaming the final moments of the Cassini space probe after 13 years of exploring Saturn and its moons. I recorded the synth strings as I watched the last data signals from Cassini as it plunged into Saturn’s atmosphere. The photos Cassini sent home in these final moments are beautiful, and tinged with just a little sadness – I don’t mind confessing I got quite misty-eyed as I watched. The remix is a tribute to the spacecraft and the people at NASA/JPL who took us on this incredible journey to Saturn. ”
