Exclusive Interview with Timmy Trumpet

Exclusive Interview with Timmy Trumpet

Siam2nite had the opportunity to have an exclusive interview with Timmy Trumpet, shortly before his performance at Ztudio Live Hall on 13th November.

Where are you answering these questions?

Right now I’m in Italy about to head to Asia to see you guys!

You are a DJ & Producer from Australia. A decade ago you have been an acclaimed Jazz musician – today you are the #1 of the inthemix50 People’s Choice Awards 2015 - in front of Will Sparks, Marlo, Tigerlily and Mash N Kutcher – and dubbed as “the busiest DJ in Australia”, doing over 200 shows a year. How did you get in touch with electronic dance music in the first place and how did you get into DJing?

Jazz improvisation got me jamming over stuff on the radio for fun. Not long after that I discovered house music, met a DJ, then played my first gig. I drove home that night knowing this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.

Your live shows are a unique combination Electro House and live trumpet. How would you describe your music in a few words, what is distinct about it?

I DJ and play trumpet over the top. I’m actually a classically trained trumpeter which is surprisingly helpful for DJing.

You are best known for your hit record “Freaks” - which has a consolidated view count of over 86 Million views on YouTube – as well as “Snapback’” (which peaked at the #1 spot in the Australian Aria Club chart), and the collaborative tracks “Toca” (with Carnage & KSHMR), “The Buzz” (with New World Sound) and “Bleed” (With SCNDL). What tracks, remixes or mix-sets would you recommend to someone that is not yet familiar with your music?

86 Million? Holy sh*t I didn’t know that! For anyone looking to get into EDM, I’ve just started a weekly mix called Freak Show which you can subscribe to for free on iTunes. I’d say that’s a great jumping off point.

What is on your agenda for the near future and what are you currently working and focusing on?

Right now I’m just trying to survive my world tour! But after that I’m jumping in the studio and from there it’s MUSIC, MUSIC, MUSIC!

What was the best and the worst gig you ever played, and what was the funniest thing ever occurred during any of your performances?

Best gig would have to be playing mainstage at Future Music Festival in Sydney earlier this year. There’s nothing like playing in front of your home crowd. On the other end, I had a sound system die on my midway through my performance, that’s my worst gig in recent memory. Felt so bad for everyone that bought tickets.

You live in Sydney – the most populous city in Australia. What can you tell us about clubbing and nightlife there? Do you have any nightlife related suggestions for first-time visitors?

There are some amazing clubs in Sydney, first timers should check out Pacha and Marquee. They are a MUST.

You will make your Thailand Debut alongside MAKJ at Ztudio Live Hall on 13th November. Have you visited Thailand before? What can the Bangkok crowd expect of your performance?

I’ve been to Thailand a couple of times now and I love it!! I’m putting together a whole new set with some never before heard tracks including my brand new collaboration with MakJ!
