Trap music - Wikipedia: "trap EDM"



trap EDM

Trap is a style of popular music that developed in the late 1990s to early 2000s from Southern hip hop in the United States.[1][2] It is typified by double or triple-time sub-divided hi-hats,[3] heavy kick drums from the Roland TR-808 drum machine, layered synthesizers and an overall dark, ominous or bleak atmosphere.[4][5] The term "trap" referred to places where drug deals take place. In the 2010s, artists crossbred trap with dubstep to create trap EDM.

Trap music is defined by its ominous, bleak and gritty lyrical content which varies widely according to the artist. Typical lyrical themes portrayed include observations of hardship in the "trap", street life, povertyviolence and harsh experiences that artists have faced in their urban city surroundings.
Trap music employs a heavy use of multi-layered hard-lined and melodic synthesizers; crisp, grimy, and rhythmic snares; deep 808 kick drums; double-time, triple-time and similarly divided hi-hats; and a cinematic and symphonic utilization of string, brass, woodwind, and keyboard instruments creating an overall energetic, hard hitting, deep, and variant atmosphere for the listener.[4][5][6][7] These primary characteristics would go on to be the signature sound of trap music originating from producer Shawty Redd. Trap comes at many different tempos, varying from 100 BPM up to 176 BPM, but the tempo of a typical trap beat is around 140 BPM.[8]
