Joining 5 & A Dime on the release is 22-year-old HOLLY, whose musical background comes form Hip Hop, Dubstep, Drum n Bass and Trap. 5 & A Dime comments on the collaboration and production process below:
“Thump is a track that both HOLLY and I feel showcases our styles and sounds well. It was actually started over a year ago, but as soon as HOLLY and I began to collab we knew we were creating something special to us. The melody from the piano came at a very emotional time for me and the drop itself naturally came together between the two of us, since we both love making crazy energetic bass sounds. I’m so happy that it is finally releasing now and that it already has support from our DJ friends and people that we respect.”
