Terraphonics Releases Debut Single "Get It Thumpin'"
'Get It Thumpin' is the debut single from Terraphonics, a project born out of R&B guitarist and producer, Thomas Kenney's, love of classic funk, neo-soul, and early hip-hop elements. Terraphonics not only samples live musicians from Kenney's hometown of Charleston, SC, but around the world, fusing Afro-Cuban, West African, and Latin elements alongside American soul.
'Get It Thumpin' is almost weather channel counterpoint meets a psychedelic hip hop vibe. Featuring Little Stranger emcee Kevin Shields, the track is both a live/sampled session with Alex Kellner on bass, Brandon Brooks on drums, Jonathan Lovett on keys, producer Rodrick Simmons (D'Angelo, Joss Stone) on synths, producer Robbi Kenney (Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Michael Bolton) on violin and viola, Gino Castillo (Gino Castillo Quartet), Robbie Madison on trumpet and vocal samples, and producer/mix engineer Thomas Kenney on guitar.
