Decent speakers or headphones crucial – Rumpitur is a beautiful hit of escapism that deserves to be experienced in isolation (excuse the topical pun).
Kicking into gear with a classic techno beat, which is simple enough connect yet skilfully crafted, with care, so as to quickly prompt you to turn things up and tune out from the world, the song goes onto venture soulfully towards nostalgic trip-hop.
Reverb-kissed, expressive vocals pour through with short, poetic lines that detail fantasy and reflection in a powerfully hypnotic manner. Meanwhile the beat goes on, a hard-hitting track in itself, rhythmically immersive enough to keep you involved for far longer than its plus-five-minute lifespan. Blend that with these fragments of gospel, vocal flickers that fill the space between lyrics, and you wind up experiencing equal parts indie rock, intricate soundscape design, and cinematic power.
A brilliant new track, inspired by the greats yet notably wandering freely along its own creative pathway – culminating in an explosive final build up and drop. What begins as a good song, evolves into greatness. Hints of Massive Attack meet Moby and Portishead amidst a heavy, relentless techno beat and lashings of inspiring thought.
Jone More defines an artistic mission to ‘make you move your head’, and this track achieves that on more than a single level. For the all-nighter, dancing or lost in your own uninhibited imagination. Defiantly one for the long-term playlist.

In 2016 Jone More fell in love with electronic music: “I think the beauty of listening and dancing to techno, tech-house and many other electronic genres, is that you are the one creating the story by listening to and feeling the music.”
In 2018 he released his first single ‘Radiator’ followed by ‘Balloon” and ‘I came here to dance’, which was released in 2019. After his last release he has been developing his skills as a producer to create better quality songs to share with the world.
“2020 will be a year of more new, awesome music!”
- Tell us about that first track that put you on the map in the electronic scene and the journey since. How did you get started?
When I was 18 years old I first got into contact with the techno scene. FL studio had already been installed on my computer for a couple of years but I never really got into actually producing. I used to have a lot of inspiration to create tracks but I wasn’t able to translate it into music, simply because I didn’t have any experience producing yet. Over the last 4 years I have taught myself to produce. The last two years I have actively been producing and discovering my own sound and style.
In 2018 I released my first track, “Radiator”, which was inspired by Stephan Bodzin. He is the first artist that made me appreciate electronic music. His tracks changed the way I listened to music. I absolutely loved it and it inspired me to create that kind of electronic music myself, which can be heard in my first release, “Radiator”.
- Tell us about your latest release ‘Rumpitur’?
“Rumpitur” is the Latin translation of the word “broken”. I went with this title because I figured it would stand out in comparison to all the other, already existing tracks that are called “Broken”.
The track starts off happy and danceable with a nice flow in the bass. The bridge is a turning point as it gets darker and darker, exactly like it can be in a relationship. In the beginning it mainly feels happy and bright but as the relationship proceeds and eventually gets ended, those happy and bright feelings get replaced with dark feelings. I tried to tell this story by transferring it into a track.
- What single night out has been the most memorable for you as a DJ and producer?
Definitely the night me and my 2 best friends decided to go out in Antwerp. We drove all the way from the north of the Netherlands to Antwerp, just to have a night out there. We had no plans whatsoever so we decided to just go with the flow and see where this would lead us to. After queueing for a party for a while, we found out we needed tickets to get in, which we didn’t have.
Then we spent an hour in a karaoke bar before we decided to try again and look for a proper party. Eventually we ended up at “Café d’Anvers”. Entry was €25 and we had no idea what we were getting ourselves into but we decided to go for it.
After we had hung up our coats, we walked down the stairs, through some kind of curtain. This honestly was the best moment ever, we found out we ended up at a techno party. For me it was the first time experiencing the techno scene. That’s when my love for techno arose and it has been growing ever since.
- Tell us something we wouldn’t normally find out about you.
In addition to being a producer, I am a drummer and I play the guitar and piano every once in a while. Last year I started studying Jazz and pop as a drummer, at the conservatory in Zwolle. I enjoy all kinds of music, from Classic to Underground Techno. I am currently working very hard to be able to provide for myself by doing what I love most, which is making and creating music.
- Give us the name of one track that never gets old for you no matter how many times you listen to it?
Blue Monday – New Order!
- Dream collaboration and why?
Collaborating and writing a track with Michael Bibi would be absolutely amazing. He has also inspired me a lot. The vibe he radiates during his live performances is very energetic and danceable to me. The music that I am currently creating is mainly inspired by Michael Bibi’s basslines and similar artists like Green Velvet, PAWS and Cloone.
- If you could play any festival, which would it be?
I would absolutely love to run a set at Tomorrowland!
- How do you get a track started? Tell us a bit about your production process. How long does it take you to complete a track on average and do you ever get writer’s block?
This is different for each song. When I feel inspired I usually just start the producing process with a melody or a dope groove. I mostly start with a groove and a bassline and I go from there. Sometimes all it takes to completely finish a track is just one day, other times I am working on it for a full week.
There are days where I feel like I am in a different world and all I do is write music for hours and hours. But there are also days where I simply don’t feel like it or I lack inspiration. On days like that I just think: “tomorrow’s a new day”.
When I get stuck while creating a track, I’ll run through my sound bank and test all sorts of sounds to find out whether they improve the song or not. Or I’ll open a synth plugin and I’ll start jamming. If I’m still unable to work it out, I usually just let it be for the moment, start a new track and have a fresh look at it again later.
- Latest track / EP? What are you working on currently? Tell us more!
“Rumpitur” is the latest track I have released. I am currently working on a Tech House EP which I am hoping to release in about two months. I also produced a summer vibe dance track that I want to release. I’m not sure when that’s going to happen yet, before or after the EP release. At the moment I am writing as much music as I can, so there is definitely more to come in this year!
- The relationship between the audience and the DJ is crucial, and yet it seems to be a fragile one – how do you see the balance between giving the crowd what they want and treating them to something new?
I am not very experienced with DJing for a live audience but I always try to look at it from the opposite way by asking myself what I would like to hear if I would be in the audience. That’s what I want to give the crowd.
Also, I think very often you can feel the atmosphere and maintaining that vibe for a while can lead to creating a trans. But by adding something extra every now and then, it definitely creates a more energetic set.
