What Is Trap Music?

 

Trap music has really taken the world by storm lately. While the style has been around for quite a while now, major DJ’s have started to take note and its popularity has boosted immensely forming a more specific EDM Trap music genre.

 

Trap generally combines the genres hip hop,  crunk, house and dubstep. It can be identified by characteristics such as 808 bass samples, a “trappy” snare, vocals that are usually pitched lower and repetitive synthetic higher pitched sounds.

According to Urban Dictionary:

To simply break it down, Trap music would be best described as a combination of;

  • 1/3 hip hop (tempo and song structure are similar, most tracks are usually between 70 -110 bpm) – with vocals sometimes pitched down
  • 1/3 Dance Music  – High pitched Dutch synth work, Hardstyle sampling, as well as a plethora of trap remixed of popular EDM songs
  • 1/3 dub (Low frequency focus and strong emphasis on repetitiveness throughout a song)

 

Major trap artists include Waka Flocka Flame, Gucci Mane, Young Jeezy, Three 6 Mafia,  RL Grime, TNGHT, Flosstradamus, Baauer, DJ Sliink, Heroes x Villains, Luminox.

Check out this new mix by Flosstradamus and you should be able to distinguish what makes this music ‘trap’:
