Trap Music

Recommended Posts

El Zilcho

This particular form of electronic music, a mix of southern hip hop beats (808s and snares) and samples (sorry for a better, more musically astute description) has been gaining a lot of popularity. I heard a snippet on BBC Radio1xtra and was instantly hooked; subsequent searching has turned up a multitude of artists (Baauer, Flosstradamus, Diplo) and songs in what looks to be a rapidly growing new genre. I'd predict an explosion in 2013, but for the moment I'm wondering, how you fellow listeners find it?

 

 

 

 

 

And a rather snazzy hour mix:

Rustie doesn't really do 'trap' per se but this is an absolute banger

 

 

 

Also worth mentioning:

Why would they even call this a genre? I've heard music like this years ago, it doesn't sound new to me. Just recycled garbage.

This, except for the garbage part.

 

Let's make even more genres that have no meaning, yayayayayay!

 

I play only the Fireman genre, it's completely new, it's a mix of trap and buzz.

There is a distinction, most recently those snares and that sort of distinctive sound used in some Southern hip hop beats have started to be mixed with electro, as a distinct 'genre' or subgenre or whatever, it's gaining popularity so I thought it's definitely worth a topic.

Ats.

Some EDM trap is really good and hype, but most of it is repetitive as f*ck and sucks ass. (TNGHT etc)

 

I like this.

My friends adore this sh*t. I can bear it most of the time, occasionally even like it - Baauer did an excellent set at Boiler Room a couple of months ago. But yeah, as stated by others, it gets rather repetitive fairly quickly.

I was never a big fan of that kind of electro music.

 

I think it would make more sense to post a topic about it if you liked it personally.

 

Edit: I've listened a couple of times to the first track you posted (in here and the "Rate the song above you" topic) and I kinda like it now. lol.gif

I like EDM a lot and yeah this genre is relatively new to me but I like it. I might not be able to correctly identify it by myself 100% but I think it's good to learn.

 

 

 

 

 

The last one has a sick bass that just resonates throughout the song which is awesome.

It's kinda so-so for me. El_Zilcho, you da man, homie..I will defo give more consIderation to it on your reccomendation.

I love the 808 sound so thAts what grabbed my attention but some of the saw-synth lines sounded a bit simple and poppy/commercial for my tastes.

 

Also I know what you mean about southern Hip-Hop beats making its way in to Electro but surely it's where they began? 808s and those familiar snare a rim shot sounds you hear began in Electro smile.gif

This guy asked me to promote his music on YouTube, he makes some nice instrumentals that would probably fall in the trap genre:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I didn't like this genre at first but now I'm really starting to get into it.

I love EDM and Hip-Hop so I'm really inclined to this genre haha.

 

 

 

Dillon Francis just released his trap remix for Bootleg Fireworks, the original is a great Moombahton song by the way if you're into that genre.

 

 

 

Well you all know Zedd's Clarity, this is a great trap remix. It keeps the vocals fresh enough.

 

 

 

I love this more than the original.

 

 

 

It's very simplistic but a nice tune nonetheless.
