This week, I bring all my fellow trap music lovers Sophia’s September Trap Mixtape; a marathon compilation of epic, bass filled trap songs that have stuck with me. As I am sure you all know, the rise of trap music was not an overnight success story. Hundreds of artists poured their souls into the genre before it was anything. In 2012, dubstep’s star began to fade, if only slightly, while progressive house rose to dominate dance charts, and trap music emerged as the subgenre to watch. In 2013, trap has carved a massive place for itself in the bass music community, with no intention of leaving. As a devoted fan of music myself, I always thought I would only love bass and dubstep styles in the realm of EDM, but trap music has snuck up on me in a way that I never expected, it has truly stolen my heart.
Over the past couple of months, I have periodically been collecting different trap-styled music tracks that struck a cord with me. I have added, deleted, rearranged, and edited this mix tape over a dozen times before I finally felt like I had a solid set of tracks. This mix features a couple of recognizable fan favorites, meshed with some underground artists who deserve some recognition. I choose every one of these tracks specifically, because I find it fascinating how each individual artist has incorporated the elements of trap into their own style in order to create a new type of sound. Even though every song on this list is considered “trap”, each one holds a unique flow that is absolutely brilliant and perfect in their own way, and has made me recognize that this genre has made a noticeable impact on dance music.
This assortment of styles is complete for any occasion, and my wish is that you enjoy all these talented producers as much as I did. Happy listening my friends!1.) Hydraulix – West Side Plauyr 2.)
