THMPSN – Nicole Aniston

Australian-bred, Las Vegas-based phonk producer/DJ and violinist THMPSN is a man of many talents. First starting as a classically trained, internationally-touring musician (playing in orchestras at Dvorak Hall in Prague, Rheingoldhalle in Mannheim, opening the Australian embassy in Berlin, as well lecturing at the French Conservatory of Music), THMPSN then moved to the United States and grew notoriety as a viral content creator. After building the YouTube channels of fitness legends Bradley Martyn and Calum Von Moger (while using their videos to promote his house bangers) and increasing his own fame with viral violin clips, THMPSN is now focusing on his other passions – into new genres and new endeavors.

THMPSN unveils the first single of this new era, “Nicole Aniston,” an official collaboration with Memphis hip-hop legend Kingpin Skinny Pimp, who has become the heaviest sampled artist in the entire phonk genre. Named after the adult film star (who also recorded vocals on the track), “Nicole Aniston” is a drift phonk banger that combines the genre’s signature aesthetic with elegant string arrangements.
