‘Underwater Love’ is the new single by two leviathans of the dance music scene, Alok and Timmy Trumpet and features the singer/songwriter and remix contributions of enigmatic producer LA Vision. With both artists arriving for the first time into the Top10 of the recent Top100DJs poll,Alok at #5 and Timmy Trumpet at #10, this latest collaboration from the pair is something special. The spectacular fusion of these two electronic titans coming together on ‘Underwater Love’ has shaped a track soaked in a dark, booming tone, and it is one that enabled LA Vision to latch onto this magic and add another intense layer of songwriting flair. All of which has been packaged in the style of a remix and magnificently executed. Stabs of swarming bass underpinning LA Vision’s vocal part before humming synths lines pulsate into an unavoidably entrancing melody.
Such is the submersible nature of ‘Underwater Love’ that once listeners have heard its propulsive beat and distinctive topline, they will be seeking it out for repeat plays everywhere from playlists to parties. Commenting on the song, Alok says: “Timmy and I love LA Vision’s hit ‘Hollywood’ so we thought it would be fun to do a track together and have LA Vision put his recognisable stamp on the song. From the beginning, we had this idea for doing something that had a lower bass groove complemented with some hypnotic synths and vocal parts. LA Vision took that marker and just ran with it, and once we heard the final composition, we instantly knew this was the perfect match-up for this collaboration!” Timmy Trumpet added: “I jumped at the chance to work with Alok again following our first collab ‘Metaphor’ a couple of years ago. I’m a big fan of his infectious grooves and melodies, and with LA Vision coming on board to deliver his magic touch, I’m so happy with how this record has turned out and can’t wait to get it out there!”
Discussing the song’s meaning LA Vision says: “This is a song about the longing for a better love and the sense of suffocation that comes with not being sure of your feelings for someone. As if we had our heads underwater, running out of oxygen, but we still cling to the hope of finding more. It is love to the limit, to the point of losing your breath.”
The smouldering success of Alok is rapidly intensifying. With over 2.7 billion streams and 18+ million listeners per month on Spotify, he is the most streamed Brazilian artist in the world on the platform. With chart-topping solo hits like ‘Metaphor’ (with Timmy Trumpet),‘On & On’ and ‘Hear Me Now’. He has collaborated with artists including Jason Derulo, Tove Lo, Martin Jensen and Armin van Buuren, and remixed songs for the likes of Dua Lipa, The Rolling Stones, and Meduza. With 24 million Instagram followers and 8.7 million TikTok followers, Alok is also the second most followed DJ globally and was the first Brazillian artist to surpass 500 million streams with one song. Not stopping there, the star has also played some of the biggest festivals globally, including sets at the likes of Burning Man and Tomorrowland.
Multi-platinum DJ, producer and live instrumentalist, Timmy Trumpet has been trailblazing through the EDM scene over the past few years. Following the success of his breakout hit ‘Freaks’, which has received more than half a billion streams and going 6 x Platinum, the Australian artist soon shot to global stardom with headline performances at festivals like EDC Las Vegas, Creamfields and Tomorrowland. Undoubtedly one of the Top100DJ’s most prolific performers in recent years, Timmy Trumpet’s musical output has seen collaborations with names like R3HAB, Steve Aoki, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, whilst more recently released his debut album ‘Mad World.
LA Vision, aka Marco Sissa, became one of Italy’s leading producers and writers with multiple platinum singles before stepping back to focus on his own project. So far, the vision is coming true – LA Vision’s debut single ‘Hollywood’ with Gigi D’Agostino was a multi-platinum hit across Europe and has over 150 million streams across all DSP’s.
