Welcome to Trapstep

September 4, 2012 7 comments

No matter your views on Electronic Dance Music, there is one thing for sure – it never fails to keep things interesting in this ever changing industry. The new movement seems to be Trap EDM, or to put it simply, “Trapstep” and it may be blowing up faster than the entire scene itself. If you are not familiar (and I don’t blame you) it’s pretty simple. Imagine all of the wubs, womps, build ups, drops, etc. you surely are used to hearing by now but throw in a looped Gucci Mane or Meek Mill beat with an overwhelming amount of random ad-libs ping ponging through your speakers. That’s trapstep.

Does it appeal to a larger demographic? Probably, although I am dreading the day when I fill up at the gas station and two big dudes roll up in a tricked out Cadillac blaring tracks like this. Many top producers are already on board with the movement including Skrillex, DJ Scream, Drumma Boy, Flosstradamus and Trap-A-Holics so if you dread this already, you are in for the long haul.

What do you think of the hip hop and EDM world colliding in such a way?
