Timmy Trumpet starts 2019 with a big bang on “Wassup (Listen To The Horns),” featuring Kastra and vocal work from legendary house singer Chuck Roberts. It’s out everywhere Friday, Jan. 11, on TMRW Music, but you can listen to it in full below a day early, exclusively on Billboard Dance.
“House music is what introduced me to the electronic music scene in the very beginning,” says Timmy. “’Wassup’ is an ode to those roots; a trip down memory lane when I was just a trumpeter playing alongside DJs in Ibiza way back when. Fun, sun and nothing but good vibes.”
It blasts out the gate with funky bassline and disco-house groove. Roberts, whom fans should remember from the 1987 foundational house classic “My House” produced by Tony Lewis, gives his sermon-esque siren call, asking people of all worlds and backgrounds to come together to the dance floor, moving in unison to the sound of the classically-trained trumpeters bright sound. Co-production comes from New Jersey upstart Kastra, who’s previously worked with Fatman Scoop and DJ Bl3nd, among others.
If you need a big melodic push in the morning or something infectious and inspiring throughout your day, “Wassup (Listen To The Horns)” is a tropical-flavored explosion, a refreshing vacation for your ears. Check it out below.
