Fantastic female artist/production/writing duo The Melody Men team with renowned dance producer James Hurr and rising US vocalist Tima Dee for infectious dancehall infused UK house workout Dip It.
The vibrant Dip It sparkles with energy is set to be a big release, thanks to the The Melody Men’s and James Hurr’s scintillating production, catchy hooks, deployed alongside sassy lyrics and confident vocals from The Melody Men and Tima Dee. Expect this hugely catchy ode to hitting the club to set dancefloors on fire!
The Melody Men said: “We wrote this track with fun in mind. The instrumental was so vibrant, and it was great to collaborate on the production with James Hurr. Tima Dee just took it to a whole other level with her sass, energy and flow. All the pieces came together perfectly!”
James Hurr: “The instrumental was originally a project I started with Bobby Blanco and Mark Knight. I worked with the Melody Men on Mark Knight’s If It’s Love back in 2019 and thought they would be a great addition to the project. They came up with a killer vocal and got their friend Tima D involved. I’m to lucky work with such strong writers and producers!”
Tima D: “When The Melody Men sent me the idea for Dip It, I knew we were gonna have a fun one! The hook was already so dope, so I was excited to write the verses. ‘Dip It’ is pretty much me in song form, a little silly, a little hard, and all about the girl gang. I hope it inspires all the cuties out there to dance even if you don’t know how.”

San Francisco Bay Area native Tima Dee fell in love with the local dance music scene and could be found at shows and festivals across the area from an early age. Recognized for her distinct voice after just a few underground acoustic showcases, Tima’s first featured dance vocal gained hundreds of thousands of streams. Labels and publishers took notice and a few months later Tima had signed her first deal and moved to Los Angeles. Tima found success lending her voice to a wide variety of dance genres as her name began to grow within the scene. She soon found herself collaborating and releasing songs with dance heavyweights such as Tritonal and Borgore. She has amassed well over 50 million streams on her work over the past few years. You can find her voice in the blockbuster Uncharted, the Oscar nominated Audible and clubs across the globe. On Dip It we see Tima developing her co-writing skills and delivering a snappy and distinct vocal that rolls with the tracks beats.
