The multi-talented music crew known as the Tables Turned have released their newest official video single, “Ro Sham Bo.” The track is a funk song with old-school hip hop in its bones, the video for which showcases the Tables Turned as purveyors and masters of both. In addition to the extensive talents of the Tables Turned, themselves, “Ro Sham Bo” features Armstrong delivering snappy, up-front vocals. The video and single have been published on the Activity Entertainment music label. Energetic and uplifting with an unstoppable back beat, “Ro Sham Bo” is rhythm and groove that fans of any genre can get behind.

The Tables Turned (who take their name from 'turntable' and use a 45 adapter as their logo) have a pared-down, sparse quality to their songwriting which is deceptively rich and complex in tone. This gives them a full and warm sound on “Ro Sham Bo” while the song itself revolves around a simple, infectious horn sample carrying the tune. There's a hint of jazz in the way the trumpet falls away at the end of each phrase.

“We have diverse backgrounds and we share eclectic tastes,” write the Tables Turned. “Jimmy Moreno and DJ No Shame play in a band named Gonzo together. Gonzo has nine guys, including Michael Klooster [Smash Mouth]. Jimmy Moreno and DJ No shame decided they would like to form a project similar to Gonzo, but with a base of three band members along with guest artists.”

Their cited influences include artists from the rock, funk, experimental, hip-hop, and jazz genres. Narrowing these to specifics, Parliament Funkadelic, Devo, Victor Wooten, Fela Kuti, and J Dilla emerge as key notables.

The themes of “Ro Sham Bo” are lighthearted and devil-may-care, the song being named after the rochambeau game, often called Rock, Paper, Scissors in America.

“The message that the video conveys is, we all have our failures but we must rise each time we fall,” writes the band. “Sometimes you just need to trust fate in making life's decisions.”

The “Ro Sham Bo” video by the Tables Turned is available online worldwide beginning 25 May 2014.
