This year’s trap explosion kicked off quite a production race with producers from all over eager to climb the popularity ladder by blasting out free mp3s and mixtapes all over the web. It’s friendly competition of course and so far we’ve already seen quite few names begin to headline major festivals including Flosstradamus, Baauer, and RL Grime. Of course it ain’t easy to rise up due to the multitudes of tunes out there, but quality is so far coming out on top.
Hailing from Phoenix, Luminox is breaking through the haze and getting booked for events all over. While recently exploring the growing West Coast scene, he ran into LA’s Carnage and together they decided to update his already massive festival trap spin on last year’s electro hit, Epic by Sandro Silva and Quintino. Combining their talents, the two trapstars made it drop even deeper with low rumbling bass and dancefloor crushing percussion. He’s definitely cornering the market for the darker side of trap and his other underground hits like Leisure exhibit very aggressive tones. Another must hear production is his own mean version of Major Lazer’s Original Don that runs much smoother and is far less bouncey.
Be sure to visit his Soundcloud where you can download his tracks and hear previews of his upcoming Trapstyle Vol. 1 compilation. Also, if you’re in SoCal, don’t miss your chance to party at his End Of The World show at Drai’s Hollywood on 12/21/2012.
