Savage & Timmy Trumpet - Freaks

Share this

What is your single about?

Freaks is about a gathering of people of all kinds from the young to the old where it becomes almost like a circus of characters and myself and Timmy trumpet are the ringmasters!

Where did you record this single, and who helped you out?

I met Timmy trumpet while on tour with the Deceptikonz. By chance we were staying at the same apartment hotel on the same level in Sydney and bumped into Timmy trumpet in the hallway after the show 4am and he said he was good friends with Joel Fletcher who did Swing remix earlier this year. We sat in the room and went over beats for a new song together. I chose the Freaks beat went home to NZ the following day straight to the studio and layed the vocals down and sent it back and Ministry of Sound loved it and released it! BTW its just gone double Platinum in Australia lol.

Have you got a video out, what is the theme/story behind the video?

Well we were booked at same venue in Adelaide to do a show together and promote the single. MOS sent a videographer and they captured an epic performance and show at a sold out venue. It was only suppose to be a online promo vid but the Australian music channels loved it so much it became the official video. Check it out below.

Who's in your band?

I am now a solo artist originally from the NZ hip hop group DECEPTIKONZ consisting of Four Members Mareko, Frisko, Devolo and myself. I still tour with my brothers overseas but nowadays I mostly travel alone.

Have you got an album coming out soon?

At the moment I'm just working on pushing out singles and once I’ve built a good catalog then I will push out a compilation. At the moment I’m working on a new single, you will need to follow me on social media to stay posted for new releases.

Will you be going on tour any time soon?

Follow me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter @SavageDkonz to find out more about tour dates and when I will be coming to a city near you.
