[preview] Trap Check, Vol. 1

Via this very blog and my twitter, I've spent time discussing and voicing my viewpoints on the current rise of Trap. You already know what "Trap" sounds like if you fuck with music from cats like Waka Flocka, Lex Luger, T.I., Rick Ross and a plethora of artists from that section of the US. Big 808-heavy beats from the Southeastern side of thangs. The boy Ricky Raw even opened a dialogue on the subject, as over the last few months, loads of EDM DJs and producers, from Diplo and Craze to Munchi and Dillon Francis have started flocking to this sound, and heads like UZ getting 'nuff praise for taking the sound into a different atmosphere, so to speak. The hoemy Zone3 has been a support of this site, and his blog THEFREAKBEAT, alongside FREAKSTEP Records, have really started putting that love into motion with loads of high quality Bass Music projects, and this one, Trap Check Vol. 1, is focusing solely on the Trap side of things.

Mixed by Hipnotikk, this will be a dope look into the Bass Music scene's take on the Trap sound. Confirmed artists include Taste Tester, Hipnotikk, Disc Jockey Nappy, Kid Cedek, ADHD, Sin Diesel, Bossk, R3, Pancho Grady and plenty more, with some others set to contribute as well. After the jump, you can check out Nappy and Taste Tester's contributions, as well as a special radio drop done specifically for this mix. Be on the lookout, as this one should be hitting you VERY soon!
