We’ve heard a lot of Justin Bieber in our favorite electronic songs lately, but I think MAKJ and Timmy Trumpet have found vocals that blow both him out of the (Cold) Water.
The King of Partying has finally entered the electronic dance scene…arguably where he has belonged all along. Andrew W.K., the bloody-nosed rocker from California, released his first dance track titled, “Party Til We Die.”
His high-energy and outrageous personality translates seamlessly into the world of BPMs and bass drops with this two and a half minute track. A staple in Warped Tour lineups and a rock concert headliner, Andrew W.K. could be performing at festivals pretty soon. Interestingly, the song was already in the works by it’s producers MAKJ and Timmy Trumpet long before he met Andrew W.K. at last year’s Ultra.
MAKJ spoke highly of the rock jokester in an exclusive interview with Billboard:
“Finding the right person for this song was a long and hard challenge, but having Andrew W.K. featured on his first dance tune was well worth the wait.”
Party Til We Die- MAKJ and Timmy Trumpet ft. Andrew W.K.
Released on Sept. 27, this song is destined to hit the radio, blow up the internet and be the peak of upcoming performances by the track’s trio of artists.
MAKJ discovered his talent for mixing at the young age of 15 while living in China as a professional racecar driver. Trained by the late and legendary DJ AM in several one-on-one lessons, MAKJ has performed at elite festivals like Ultra and the main stage at TomorrowWorld. At just 23 years old, MAKJ hosts a weekly radio show on Clear Channel’s Evolution channel heard online via iHeartRadio.
Timmy Trumpet is an Australian house DJ and producer who made his big break in Ibiza playing trumpet solos over electronic tracks. When he’s not filming his stints on FOX8’s reality show the Stafford Brothers, Timmy, the No. 1 ranked DJ in Australia according to the 2015 inthemix DJ Awards, is working on projects like this hit with Andrew W.K.
A clear success for all three artists, “Party Til We Die” could be the beginning of Andrew W.K.’s revival as an electronic party enthusiast. After this flawless track, we wouldn’t be surprised if there’s already another project in the works.
