Timmy Trumpet's 'MAD WORLD' Exclusive Mix

 
We’re celebrating certified legend Timmy Trumpet’s debut album Mad World!! A world-class entertainer, third generation trumpeter, and a talented multi-instrumentalist, Timmy doesn’t hold back with new collaborations with Scooter, Vini Vici, Mo Falk, Gabry Ponte, 22Bullets and more! In his Exclusive Mix we get a first hand look at how the diverse array of productions fit into his live sets and he gets up close and personal in his interview, chronicling all of the energy and passion that were baked into this massive moment. Enjoy!
 
 
Timmy, thanks so much for joining us to celebrate your new album. Can you discuss your  decision to name your album Mad World? How do the tracks on the album reflect this title? 
I can’t take credit for the title, I think 2020 speaks for itself! Ever since we went into lockdown earlier this year I decided I was going to finally finish my album. I’m always inspired by everything around me and it’s no doubt that the events of this year have affected us all. I wanted this album to be about a time that we’ll never forget but something positive my fans can share with me during this time.  
 
Can you talk more about what it’s like releasing an album in 2020 during the Coronavirus pandemic compared to other times in your career? 
I honestly don’t know if I would have been able to bring out an album this year if it wasn’t for the pandemic. My touring schedule makes it pretty hard to lock yourself away in a studio.  As far as the sound and how the album turned out, there is definitely no way that it would be the album that it is. I’m very influenced by everything around me and the pandemic changed me and the music I wanted to make.  
 
 
What was it like working with the various collaborators and vocalists on the album tracks?  Were there any particular artists that you worked with that you really enjoyed or learned  something particularly significant from? 
I learned a lot from a number of tracks on the album. It’s a much more diverse album than most would expect from me and I wanted to make music that I had never made before. I’m really proud of tracks like “Cold,” “The Snail” and “The City.” They were very rewarding to make, and I still love listening to them now. I also got to work with two of the most iconic and crazy fun artists to work with in Scooter and Vengaboys. I love the energy their music brings and to work with them all these years later was a humbling experience. 
 
Can you pick out one track from the album and tell us about the production process that  went into it? How did you go from the idea/sketch to the final version for these tracks? 
“The Snail” with Mo Falk was one of the most fun tracks to work on. I love hearing anything  that I haven’t quite heard before and I feel we were able to achieve something here. Mo Falk’s an amazing producer and has brilliant ideas. We infused Piano House, Future House and Trap with an underlying funk groove about it. It started as an idea from Mo Falk and  then I started trying new ideas until every part popped and complemented each other. The  idea of mixing and blending genres is something I’ve been doing for as long as I can remember. I love that if you only heard one particular part of the track and not another, you might not think you were listening to the same track. But together it just works. There’s a lot of tracks that make more structural sense on the album but the tracks you get to really fuck with are always the most fun.

Is there any song that is especially meaningful to you or one you are particularly proud of?  Why? 
I’m proud of the whole album and it all really does mean a lot to me. To get down to 18  tracks there were about 100 unreleased tracks that will probably never see the light of day. It  was hard letting go of so many ideas that I have been working on for the album and some of those ideas have been around for five years. I’m so grateful for everyone I got to make the album with and even more grateful to the people that have supported me and influenced  this album the most. I think I was most proud when my Mum and Dad listened to the album for the first time. They were the ones that drove me to and from music lessons when I was a kid and if it wasn’t for their support and encouragement Mad World wouldn’t exist.  
 
You shared a clip on social media in front of the Sydney Opera House when asking your fans to send in their images for the album cover and mentioned your first concert was  there at age 13. Can you tell us some more about your love and passion for music and the trumpet and how that continues to shine bright in your music and grow throughout your  life? 
My dad taught me how to play first before I had professional lessons. Passing down the gift of music is a truly magical thing. Music is everything to me – all shapes, all kinds. I’ve always had it in my life and always will. It transcends beliefs, politics, power, borders, languages and so much more. We all need it no matter what or who we listen to. I’m in love with the way hearing something special for the first time makes you feel. How it can change you in a second, how it can make you forget about your worries or how it can inspire new ideas. But most of all I’ve come to learn how important sharing music with others is. That’s something I didn’t really understand until this year. Until we had live events taken away from us. It’s in these moments that new friendships are formed, when moments we’ll never get back again happen. The trumpet for me is my personal extension of all this. It’s a way of speaking the language of music in a way that’s unique to me, that has developed over time and my own  personal experiences. I love the sound, and when it comes together on the stage with music  made by the best producers of our time it can produce real and raw emotion.  
 
 
As one of the top touring DJs in the world, what has it felt like working on records that  were made for the dancefloor without the ability to test them live and see your tracks in action? 
You do your best to adapt. Livestreams have been a big help to everyone and especially producers in that sense. I haven’t focussed on making music for the dancefloor much this year but there’s definitely some bangers that I can’t wait to unleash.  
 
Without the dancefloor and your sets for fans to enjoy some records, do you have an  intended mood, location, or time for people to listen to your album? What’s one track that you can’t wait to play live when shows are back? 
Listen to the album from start to finish. That was the way it was intended. Go for a drive,  tune out with your headphones laying on your loungeroom floor, whatever you want. When I’m on stage all I want is for people to leave their worries behind and just rage. I hope the album does the same thing but in a different way. I’d play the album backwards if it meant I could be on the stage again!  
 
 
As people in all industries but especially in the electronic dance music world seem to fight  a daily challenge to find creativity and positivity in their lives, do you have any advice to  share for those struggling to find both productivity and balance? 
Turn off the news! Filter out the noise as much as you can and try to focus on what you can do given the situation we are in. I know some people are going through unimaginable challenges, but we just have to do what we can and focus on what’s in front of us today.
  
And as we look ahead to a new year in 2021 what has you excited? 
Seeing where we all go from here. I’ll never take playing live shows for granted and I can’t f#cking wait to get back in stage. Great things are always on the other side of our biggest challenges. Our world will be different but I’m excited to see what the Mad World of 2020  has taught us and how we celebrate life when this is behind us.
