An Introduction to Trap Pt. 2: Deep Cuts

I hope everyone enjoyed the first edition of “An Introduction to Trap,” as much as I did writing it.  Moving forward, its time to get into some deeper tracks from some up and coming Trap artists.  First up, from the Chicago area native, where Trap music seems to be finding a hot spot, is Luminox.  Among many of his originals, I found this track to be his most stand out.  Remixing Sandro Silva and Quintino’s “Epic,” Luminox adds some much needed Dirty South percussion to slow the track down, even if the original melody feels the same speed.  Also included in this weeks tracks is “Kill Em” by Trap duo Clicks & Whistles.  Overall, this track breathes fire as a sexy sounding spanish woman repeats the phrase “matalos.”  Also worth a mention in this post is the collaboration from newcomers to the Trap scene, ETC!ETC! and Brillz.  “Swoop” is an incredibly strange and dirty Trap track with excellent synth work and percussion.  Make sure to grab all of these tracks and check out all these artists Soundcloud pages as they have many goodies for download.  Until next week, enjoy the movement which is Trap.

An Introduction to Trap Pt. 1: The Essential Tracks

Welcome to the age of Trap ladies and gentlemen.  In a world where beats rain supreme and producers forever seek the ultimate glorification of finding an unexplored sound, Trap music rose from the fiery ashes of Dirty South Rap instrumentals and tamed Dubstep synth work.  I may be over-hyping Trap, but it’s exciting times for a promising genre of electronic music.  As I just explained, Trap can only be described by the Rap and Hip-Hop beats and the wildly erie synth sounds accompanying those beats.  Today, I would like to introduce to some of the tracks that shot Trap to the forefront of many EDM artist’s festival sets.  Below are some of the tracks responsible for the quick rise of Trap music including Baauer’s “Harlem Shake,” Flosstradamus’ remix of “Original Don,” and RL Grime and Salva’s remix of “Mercy” by Kanye West.  Check them all below and be sure to grab the freebies.  Trap is coming people…
