When Australian DJ Timmy Trumpet first teamed up with New Zealand MC Savage in 2014, the resulting track Freaks took the world by storm. 150 million Spotify streams and a plethora of platinum records later, the duo have made magic again. This time it’s with Deja-Vu, out now.
The pounding bass line and huge drop teamed with Savage’s unmistakable vocals combine to make a belter of a track. Timmy Trumpet, whose relentless international touring schedule saw him jump up a massive 37 spots in the recent DJ Mag Top 100 poll to #43, explains how the track came together: “Freaks” was a game changing record for me, opening up a whole new audience to my music. Savage is THE MAN and I knew I wanted to work with him again ever since we first got in the studio.”
Déjà Vu collaborator Savage explains why had to work with Timmy again: “Timmy is definitely one of the most driven artist/producers that I have worked with, so when he approached me for this record I went to work straight away. I did my own remix of his “Toca” record he put out with Carnage a while ago and he had asked if I could use some of those lyrics for this one.”
They’ve done it before with Freaks, now we’re feeling it again with Déjà Vu. It’s another trumping banger that you can’t ignore.
