As another year comes to a close it’s about that time for us here at RTT to recap on what we know best: the top trap records of 2014. Trap music continued to captivate and astound dance music audiences from around the world this past year, not only skyrocketing in popularity but opening the door for progressive offshoot genres like future bass and hybrid trap. While OG trap runners like RL Grime, Baauer, Flosstradamus, Hudson Mohawke, and LOUDPVCK delivered on some of the hardest hitting jams of the year, 2014 also saw the emergence of upcoming producers entering the spotlight such as Mr. Carmack, SNAILS, Slumberjack, Yogi, and more. By continuing to push the envelope with more 808 bass kicks and trill hi-hats to kill an elephant, these talented producers have earned the honor to be included in our comprehensive list below featuring the best trap music originals and remixes of 2014. So crank up those monitors and relive a year in trap music with us! Here’s to even more trap bangers (and #traparms) in the new year.
