Best New Trap Music download

Introducing our Best New Trap Music series of posts.  2012 was the year of future trap, or trap step, or trap bass (or whatever the heck it’s called) and as you can see from my personal year-end top 12 list, I’m a fan.  Artists like Flosstradamus, Baauer, TNGHT, RL Grime, and Salva lead the charge (as far as I’m concerned), and then at the top of his year… “Harlem Shake” happened. The sound has seemingly been reaching a tipping point anyway, as it can be relatively predictable and getting #TURNTUP has never been more popular. That being said, when I sat down to round up what I feel are the best new tunes in the genre, it was harder than I imagined to find things I actually really liked. Here are three joints that are definitely worth checking out.

Trap kings the Hoodie Boyz, bka Flosstradamus connected with New Jersey native DJ Sliink for this banger “Crowd Ctrl” off their Nomads release via Fool’s Gold Records that dropped yesterday. Flosstradamus are currently on tour with Waka Flocka and 2 Chainz producer DJ Spinz. Holler.

Philly based producer Starkey recently released his Inter-Mission EP today on his label Seclusiasis that he co-runs with Dev79. The EP features Leah Smith, Karizma, Nina Smith, and Curly Castro. Listen to his club banger “Lies” off the project.

Yellow Claw out of the Netherlands haven’t crossed over to the US but judging from their Youtube channel which boasts singles with upwards of 2 million spins, they will. Their new Amtsterdam Trap Music EP dropped via Jeffree‘s and kicks off with “Kaolo” and it’s a beast. The whole project is dope so be sure to check that out. This is probably my favorite of the three tracks featured in this post.
