This ANZAC musical collaboration saw Sydney-born house DJ and brass player Timmy Trumpet team up with South Auckland-raised rapper Savage. Trumpet (real name Timothy Jude Smith) scored an international reputation as a house DJ, after playing brass solos over dance tracks during sets on the Spanish party island of Ibiza. After leaving Deceptikonz, Kiwi hip hop star Savage tasted international chart success with his 2005 solo single ‘Swing’. ‘Freaks' topped the charts in Aotearoa, made it to number three in Australia, and won notice in Europe. It won Highest Selling Single at the 2015 NZ Music Awards.
Bass meets brass in this 2014 collaboration between Australian house DJ and producer Timmy Trumpet, and Kiwi rapper Savage. Having previously tasted international chart success with his single 'Swing', Savage contributes vocals and lyrics to Trumpet's track. The result topped the charts in New Zealand — it won Highest Selling Single at the 2015 NZ Music Awards — made it to three in Australia, and won attention in Europe. The video is a sweaty record of the song being performed live at Adelaide’s HQ nightclub, with strobes flashing over the pumping throngs.
