Sofi Tukker and Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano release an exhilarating new dance single, entitled, “Trompa”

Sofi Tukker (best friends—Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern) has a global reputation as the most vibrant, positive, and community-driven dance music group out there. Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano are a dynamic Dutch duo, world-renowned DJs, and producers based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Not too long ago, the two parties released an exhilarating new dance single, titled, “Trompa,” via Armada Music.

Sofi Tukker and Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano – “Trompa” single

“Sophie sings the vocal part from a 1980’s samba song by Robson Jorge & Lincoln Olivetti. I (Sophie) remember hearing at the samba de rodas I used to go to in Rio with my friends. It was one of those songs everyone knew and sang along to together at our ritual musical jams, everyone either dancing samba or playing an instrument. When I hear it now, years later, it still brings me right back to that time and place. Ever since making it, it’s been a staple in our DJ sets. And just as we expected, it makes people unconsciously shake their asses on another level! We’ve played it with Sunnery and Ryan at Tomorrowland in Belgium, we’ve performed it at Coachella, it has been a part of our peak experiences, and with the original inspiration being so nostalgic for Sophie, to say we are excited to finally put it out is an understatement!” – Sofi Tukker explained

Sofi Tukker unveiled the pulsating dance banger at a string of memorable live shows in Mexico City and Red Rocks, culminating in a triumphant Coachella performance. Featuring Sofi Tukker’s trademark propulsive beats and entrancing vocals, “Trompa” is laced with Portuguese singing by Sophie and Suriname vocals by Sunnery James. Based on a sample by MPB músical popular Brasiliera artists, Robson Jorge & Lincoln Olivetti, “Trompa” is a euphoric slice of dance heaven poised to induce rhapsodic dance parties all summer long. Apple TV is also featuring the track during Major League Soccer, which launched May 13th.

The vibrant video for “Trompa” captures Sofi Tukker during their Carnaval adventure in Rio de Janeiro earlier this year, alongside footage of Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano. The clip encapsulates the song’s free and energetic spirit as seen through the sights and sounds of Brazil, making for a perfect companion to the invigorating track.

“It’s been a wonderful ride getting to the moment now that we are finally releasing TROMPA with our friends, SOFI TUKKER. We started working on this more than a year ago, through a mutual love and appreciation of each other’s music. When Sophie came with the Brazilian Portuguese lyrics, the rest flowed seamlessly. It’s such a great vibe and energy that we believe really reflects what we’re all about – all four of us. We’ve been playing the track for some time in our live shows and it’s a highlight. Our fans have been asking for ages when it will be released, so now it finally is. We’re very proud of this song.” – Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano explained
