Hard Trap To Be The Next Big Thing After Deep House?

Posted at November 24th, 2016 | by Sidhantha Jain | in Grapevine

Okay, so before I begin with why I think Hard Trap is the next big thing in the world of dance music, I would like you to know, my artist preferences range from UZ to The Chainsmokers and everyone in between. This should sufficiently explain my genre horizons.
Talking about up and coming artists, everybody these days is going gaga over SAYMYNAME (Dayvid Lundie-Sherman) and his infectious trap beat with influences from hard style music. To be honest, this combination sounds better than what you might think of! When I first heard his take on Propaganda, I was pleasantly surprised with the freshness he brought to the DJ Snake hit and since that day, I’ve been craving for more such tracks.

I believe big room music has reached a saturation point because we all demand “something” more than the already familiar rush, climatic drums and THE DROP. Artists like Kygo, ZHU, Alan Walker, Oliver Heldens, Nucleya and Marshmello are taking EDM into a different zone with their unique ideology and frankly, I am not disappointed by moving away from the mainstage tracks. Hard-Trap is definitely “something” which can compete with the Deep House hype. Even though it borrows characterises from previously known genres, its emergence is a welcome change with the screeching synths, massive kicks and lots of bass! To sum up, it’s catchy, energetic and kind of brain damaging all at the same time.
