Clubtapes has been doing a good job of documenting the growth of the recent explosion around the ‘Trap Music‘ movement; interviewing and following some of the most prominent artists involved in the scene. These videos provide an inside look of what producers from both the Hip Hop/ Rap and Dance Music side of things think about the recent growth of the Trap Music genre. One of the most admiral things about all the producers interviewed, is that they all mainly have positive things to say about the growth (as opposed to a lot of the hate that can be spread around the internet at times). The opinions of the tastemakers IN the scene is the most important thing, in my opinion.
In the third installment of Certified Trap, ClubTapes crosses overseas to Japan to witness the international influence of Trap music. After an interview with rising trapstars, Watapachi, they get a glimpse of Tokyo’s night life as they link with Dirty South Joe and DJ Sliink. Traveling back to the heart of the Trap, Atlanta, we join some of EDM’s biggest DJ’s as well as 20,000 festival goers at Counterpoint Music festival, then link with Mayhem (of ‘Bricksquad Anthem’ fame) and introduce Hip Hop super-producer, KE On The Track to Trapstyle.
