Irfan Hilmi's insight:

Mad Decent is the name of the Los Angeles-based record label spearheaded by Wesley Pentz, better known as Diplo, the 3x Grammy-nominated producer and world renowned DJ. As an influential label that has been home to artists like Major Lazer, Baauer, Rusko, Dillon Francis, RiFF RAFF, Crookers, Bonde Do Role (to name a few), Mad Decent aims to bring new genres and cultures to light in the ever diversifying music community. Aside from the music released, Mad Decent is also known for its annual Block Parties, a series of outdoor dance party/concerts in select cities across the United States and Canada

Irfan Hilmi's insight:

The mysterious ƱZ came up on the soundcloud scene about 1 year ago, with the amazing ŤɌ∆Ҏ ᶊῌῗ† series.
With huge support from DJ's worldwide, the likes of Diplo, Flosstradamus, Skrillex, Toddla T, Baauer, and Craze to name a few, UZ’s debut EP was released on Jeffree’s, a sub-label to Mad Decent.
"UZ tunes are drunken energy sub bass and cartoon horn stabs that make my stomach feel weird and my feet shuffle," Diplo writes.
Raw and powerful, but with a laid back tempo, UZ gives listeners a chance to slow down without losing momentum

Nicolas Weil's curator insight, November 8, 2015 6:41 PM

Around 2014,  a new sub-genre of hip hop was becoming popular. Some argue that the genre of trap does a disservice to the much older and prominent "southern trap music". This new genre of trap is very similar to EDM music. In some ways it can be argued that it dosent sound anything like hip hop, except maybe for some of the drum choices.

Irfan Hilmi's insight:

2012: Flosstradamus, an electro-house duo from Chicago, have a huge hit with their remix of Major Lazer’s new single “Original Don.” They slow it down, chop it up, and throw in some tinny hi-hats. They infuse the house beat with the distinguishing features of hip-hop’s trap and chopped-and-screwed genres.

Trap (music)- Basic theory.

Trap (music)

Trap music is a music genre that originated in the early 2000s from Southern hip hop in the Southern United States. It is typified by its aggressive lyrical content and sound, which incorporates 808 sub-bass kick drums, double-time, triple-time and other faster time division hi-hats, pitched-down vocals, layered synthesizers, and "cinematic" strings.

Irfan Hilmi's insight:

A music genre that originated in the early 2000s from Southern hip hop in the Southern United States.The term "trap" was literally used to refer to the place where drug deals are made. Fans and critics started to refer to rappers whose primary lyrical topic was drug dealing, as "trap rappers. David Drake of Complex wrote that "the trap in the early 2000s wasn't a genre, it was a real place", and the term was later adopted to describe the "music made about that place."

The definition of Trap Music in the present year.

Tyanna Kimarri Holmes's curator insight, March 13, 10:02 PM

“ What is trap music today?” I believe the question should be “what is trap music?” Trap Music  goes hand in hand with rap, but they are not the same. Trap music originated in the south. Trap music is a new genre as well as EDM. Ironically trap music can also be referred to as EDM trap music. With trap music you have to have bass, and you have to a high hat or some type of kick. Still “ what is trap music?” Trap music is music with an attitude. It is music that gets you hyped up and talks about struggles, drama, success, representing your hometown, and of course there is trap music that is just for fun. If you are just wanting to have some fun or get pumped for a workout, and you are needing some motivation then I would suggest  listening to trap music.
