Trap music is that hot new sub-genre of electronic dance music that our editorial went on to describe as:
The combination of the strong snare and sultry codeine infused bass that truly epitomizes traditional Southern trap music. It’s that rich ticking sound that drops in over a varied combination of heavy beats, vocals and drum sounds.
It's nothing like Avicii, Swedish House Mafia or Deadmau5. Let me introduce your ears.
Baauer, who will be touring with Dillon Francis and Flosstradamus this fall, is an absolute killer. You'll come to that conclusion about five seconds into pressing play on this free download. I'm also waiting for a rapper to go in on top of this.
This Major Lazer remix is a perfect display, a mix of heavy beats and summer vibes make it one of my favorite tracks this year.
Between this Sleigh Bells remix and express yourself, it's safe to say that Diplo just sets sh*t off.
Adventure Club continues to push out the best clubstep (dance dubstep) for free. The Canadian duo has incredible stage presence and you need to catch them live whenever you get the chance.
Deadmau5 released an unmastered version of a new track that he's been working on. I like the sound and am happy to see Joel back producing music.
