As with the genre defining Pass Out, Trampoline too takes on various components and sounds, serving as a reminder of Tinie’s willingness to take a musical risk. “I didn’t want to over-think the first single too much but I knew it had to be a transition between the first and the second album. I describe it as being like a climax,” he says with a cheeky grin of the bass-laden track that encompasses Calypso, Trap, Dance, Dancehall and Rap and references Banksy, Claridges and Jordans before listing the many places around the world that he’s so far #disturbed. It’s a bold track that you’d expect from Diplo, and serves as an excellent reminder of just how flexible Tinie’s flow and delivery can be. Once Diplo had tweaked the track to perfection, Tinie asked US rap star 2 Chainz to jump on the single.
