Low driving grooves combine with meandering plucks, tight percussion and hi-tec production to create this energy-laden banger from DJ Gamba and Smit. We welcome the two aboard as they share this 6-minute dancefloor-primed cut with us.
DJ Gamba is no stranger to Trommel as we premiered the debut release on his self-titled vinyl outfit GAMBA001 back in September. The wax release featured modern takes on classic house sounds with some cheeky vocal samples from well-known tracks, a recipe for tracks to make most any dancefloor bounce up and down.
Smit, a on the other hand, is a newcomer to Trommel who has joined forces with DJ Gamba to bring his soulful and mellow sound, which blends elements of R&B, jazz, and hip-hop. Hailing from the Netherlands, Smit has cut his teeth as a music producer and songwriter becoming known for his introspective lyrics and smooth tastes.
DJ Gamba, whose real name is Kevin Gamba, is a Kenyan-born DJ and music producer. He is known for his work in the African music industry, particularly in the genres of Afro-pop, Afro-house, and Afrobeat.
