With trap head honcho Chris Downar off to Burning Man, there’s a new man running the trap this week: me! The pressure is on, but I’ve done my best to collect the most gangsta, gregarious, and Guetta-free bass music around. Not quite live, but ready for primetime, get ready, get set, it’s Trap Tuesdays!
Yellow Claw & Yung Felix – No Flex Zone
Dutch trap triumvirate Yellow Claw joins forces with Yung Felix to sample the Rae Sremmurd rap song of the same name in No Flex Zone, a hard-hitting trap beat that includes smashing 808s and a hot jersey club vibe.
GTA – Cake
We can’t say enough good things about GTA, but this one takes the… errr, cake. Featuring a fierce Rick Ross sample, the hip hop-inspired beat also includes a healthy dose of bouncy electro, truly living up to the duo’s #DeathToGenres tagline.
Green Lantern – Funk Space Coaster
Green Lantern resurrects the soul of James Brown for this gritty, funk-infused trap cut. If that doesn’t get you up out of your seats, the sexy saxophone sample sure will.
GoldLink – Ay Ay (Lindsay Lowend & Jonah Baseball Remix)
Right off the bat, the glitched-out robot rap and warped sounds grab your attention and refuses to let go. It’s a fun, booty-shaking beat, and sometimes, that’s exactly what you need.
SKULS – Graves
Last track of the night, time to get trill, right? Despite it’s laid-back atmosphere, this track is a big head-bopper perfectly suited for the summertime drives.
