Post Trap and Bass
Spectrasoul having a 30 minute trap intro...
Rockwell going trappy in almost his whole guestmix for Friction on BBC1...
Wilkinson spinning trap tracks in his Beatpatrol 2013 promomix...
And I could go on...

What do you guys think of this Trap music in international drum and bass sets?
Do they just roll on the hype of trap, or do they actually like it?
Is this just temporary, or will it be a new subgenre like liquid, tech, neuro...?

What is it with these 808 claps and "hey"-vocals? :shock:

What's your thought on this?

Post Re: Trap and Bass
Will become a new genre I think.
But I'm not fan of it for a 100%.

I think it's not wrong to play one trap track in a set for variation but when it goes all trappy I just don't like it anymore.
Apart from Rockwells remix of Kingpin there aren't really tracks out there that I really like.

did Spectrasoul really play 30 min of trap @ square? I thought it was only 10 minutes... :drunks:

anyway, didn't like those 10 mins and I guess I'm never really going to like the genre. It's defo not a subgenre of dnb and it will never be one either.

lol

trap influences in dnb, why not. but spinning more than 3 trap tracks in a dnb set wouldn't be my cup of tea personally.

Post Re: Trap and Bass
trap was killed before it actually was born.
There are (were) a lot of interesting sounds and influences in those early tunes, but as so much new music, it never got the chance to evolve from a 'proto-genre' to an actual genre.

Harlem shake was the rise and subsequent fall of trap. What happened to dubstep when everybody turned their heads in the same direction (loud, overcompressed poppy bass music), has already happened to trap.

Music, not so long ago, was very regionally influenced. DnB was a UK genre, that over the years got some more airplay across the world. Techno & House were born in the states, fuck all knows who invented trance. But the point is, that the slow distribution allowed genres to evolve gradually. Unless you were a dj, the music you listened to as a 15 yr old, was more or less decided on your location.

With the rapid evolution of information distribution, a lot of this regionality dissappeared. 2 years ago being a kid living in Capetown, NYC, Rio or Wijnegem, you listened to dubstep. This winter trap was being shoved down everybody's throat. It was the name for a genre that was higly influenced by southern hiphop and rap, but quickly became the name for music that sounded like Harlem Shake.

So in response to your question: dj's who play trap in their dnb sets, your too late. The hype is already over, best switch to samba-house (which will be the next big thing, mark my words)

very interesting thoughts man, would be another interesting thesis subject around cultural geography, I suppose the one we all know about dnb (viewtopic.php?f=4&t=30356) was written a few year to early...but should be interesting to look at the impact of global social structures on the fast changing hypes in music (and lifestyle in general)

In my opinion, bye bye electronic music culture, fuck this globalization of everything :angryfire:

You have to see the positive facts about globalisation too...
Producers and DJs all over the world that have a lot of talent, but not the people skills and the social networks, now have a possibility to get known because of the 'globalisation'.
And globalisation brought us McDonalds and Cocacola :bigup:

Dubstep, drumstep, half tempo d&b, trap, .. everytime some new hype comes along Breakz looses their mind :p But drum&bass is still the main bass genre! It survived every hype.

It has the influences in it for sure, but I still find it difficult to properly categorize the tracks from that album, such different sounds.
But hey, not a bad thing, great album.

well said. being all connected makes us lose ourselves into the ocean. internet gives us the feeling that everything has been done already, far better than you could. and that in the end you're another nobody.
paying attention to local products isnt only good for food :)
