ALOK & Timmy Trumpet Try Funky Psytrance On 'Metaphor': Exclusive

Gabriel Wickbold

Who's ready to get a bit trippy? ALOK and Timmy Trumpet aren't afraid to get weird, and their collaboration "Metaphor" is feels lke shuffling through a funky psytrance rabbit hole. It's dark and kind of brooding, but it's strangely fun. A pulsing bassline lays the foundation for an almost circus-like synth lead, the combination of which will inspire twisted smiles and lots of body movement.

“'Metaphor' is a really great addition to my sets," ALOK tells Billboard Dance. "It has a unique flare that speaks a lot about my musical roots. It was a pleasure working with Timmy Trumpet, as he is super talented and manages to surprise in all of his releases. We hope that the energy and power of this song reaches the four corners of the earth."

"Working with ALOK was simply amazing," Trumpet adds. "I had his track 'Hear Me Now' on repeat for weeks, and here we are a couple years later releasing a track together. It's truly an honour." 

"Metaphor" is out Friday, Feb. 1, on Spinnin Records, but you can listen to it a day early, exclusively on Billboard Dance.
