Favicon for Stream SOFI TUKKER x Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano - TROMPA

Flaunting the infectious groove of SOFI TUKKER and Sunnery Ryan & James Marciano’s respective trademark sounds, ‘TROMPA’ is laced with Portuguese singing by Sophie and Surinamese vocals by Sunnery James. Based around a sample from a 1980’s samba song by Brasiliera artists Robson Jorge & Lincoln Olivetti, ‘TROMPA’ is a euphoric slice of dance heaven poised to induce rhapsodic dance parties all summer long. Apple TV will also feature the track during Major League Soccer, which launched May 13th (watch the spot here).

On ‘TROMPA’, Sofi Tukker says “I (Sophie) remember hearing at the samba de rodas I used to go to in Rio with my friends... it was one of those songs everyone knew and sang along to together at our ritual musical jams, everyone either dancing samba or playing an instrument. When I hear it now, years later, it still brings me right back to that time and place. Ever since making it, it's been a staple in our DJ sets. And just as we expected, it makes people unconsciously shake their asses on another level! We've played it with Sunnery and Ryan at Tomorrowland in Belgium, we've performed it at Coachella, and it has been a part of our peak experiences. With the original inspiration being so nostalgic for Sophie, to say we are excited to finally put it out is an understatement!"    

Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano add “It’s been a wonderful ride getting to the moment now that we are finally releasing ‘TROMPA’ with our friends SOFI TUKKER. We started working on this more than a year ago, through a mutual love and appreciation of each other’s music. When Sophie came with the Brazilian Portuguese lyrics the rest flowed seamlessly. It’s such a great vibe and energy that we believe really reflects what we’re all about – all four of us. We’ve been playing the track for some time in our live shows and it’s a highlight. Our fans have been asking for ages when it will be released, so now it finally is. We’re very proud of this song.” 


Best friends Sophie Hawley-Weld & Tucker Halpern have a global reputation as the most vibrant, positive and community-driven dance music group out there. In 2015 they released their debut single “Drinkee,” which was nominated for a GRAMMY, followed by a 2nd nomination for their debut album Treehouse. They have since earned Platinum & Gold record sales, several #1 records, over a billion streams, and have been featured in campaigns for Apple ("Best Friend"), Peloton ("Purple Hat") and Smartwater ("Wet Tennis”). In 2023 Tucker & Sophie have also been seen as the faces of colorful G-Star Raw & Baboon to the Moon collections, and the continuation of their own fashion label, WET TENNIS. Their new single “JACARÉ” is a celebration of Brazil and the LGBTQ+ community, with lyrics by the Brazilian poet Chacal. SOFI TUKKER have collaborated with artists around the world, such as Amadou & Mariam, Mahmut Orhan, Bomba Estéreo & Pabllo Vittar. 2023 projects include the release of the single, "Sacrifice" with Kx5 (Kaskade & Deadmau5) as well as contributing two songs to the debut album from LP Giobbi including the haunting track "If Love Is A Skill." Their versatility as a live act has them packing festival fields, selling out headline tours at iconic venues such as Red Rocks, and returning to Vegas for their DJ residency. Their immersive new live show debuted at Coachella, and will be followed by Governors Ball, Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, Lollapalooza, Osheaga & more. 


Having cemented their reputation with major performances at Sensation, Airbeat One, Tomorrowland, Creamfields and Mysteryland this summer, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano are the archetypal mainstays of the dance music scene. With almost two decades of scene experience under their belt, they’re enjoying global success as producers with songs such as ‘Savages’ (20+ million streams), ‘Life After You’ and ‘Summer Thing’ (with Dragonette, Cat Dealers and Bruno Martini), are cultivating their trademark sound through their own SONO imprint, and travel the world with their Sexy By Nature concept, which has a radio show spinoff that reaches millions of dance music fans on a weekly basis. Frequently headlining the world’s biggest festivals (e.g. Tomorrowland, Ultra Europe and Balaton Sound), the Amsterdam-based producers continue to stake their claim amongst the most consistent and prolific house acts.
