Check in left-of-center for these global bass trap(ish) tunes. If formulaic microgenre standards are getting to you and you like music that’s just a tad outside the norm, these global bass takes on the trap aesthetic could make your day. There’s no way your laptop is going to generate these bass notes, so be sure to plug in to something a little more powerful.

When Bassnectar comes to New York, he calls on Bulgarian charlatan, Joro Boro, to open Summer festivals. That has got to indicate that Joro has some tricks up his sleeve. “Konoplya On Trap” feat. Dakha Brakha combines dope chanting and a bass note that thumps way hard.


Cross-country collaborations have yielded two of my favorite trap-influenced tropical tracks with Sango and B.Lewis on “Não é Nada” last year and just last week KCRW/LA resident Jeremy Sole worked with lauded Dubspot instructor and Cumba Mela member,  NY producer Atropolis, on a wicked remix of Dom La Nena’s  “Batuque”.


We just convinced Oro 11 to post up the banger from Chicago’s DJ Quality off Bersa Discos #8 titled “Gigante”. Feel special: it’s a free download just for you guys. It’s worth your time to check the whole EP including the pretty cumbia take on Drake’s “Crew Love”.


This track, “Chingata” featuring ChigiyoMaster, is not to be slept on. Equal parts happy and tough brought to you by double agent Captain Planet also known as Mixtape-Riot-maestro, Chuck Wild. He has a golden ear across the board and this is one track that highlights his thinking outside the box.


Last up is Nick Mathon checking in from the Netherlands with a trap bootleg of bubbling beats track, Latin Feeling by DJ Chuckie.
