Josh’s Audio Therapy

Friday, September 21, 2012

This week in Audio Therapy I'm going to show you some of my favorite Trap style tracks. Trap music has been around for a while now mainly in the hip hop scene but more recently has blown up with EDM DJs producing and playing trap songs and sets. Below are five trap songs that I find represent the style very well. Download all these free tracks, turn up the bass and let me know what you think!


First up we have the masters of trap music themselves, Flosstradamus. Hailing from Chicago the DJ duo J2K and Autobot have some of the nastiest remixes around. Currently touring with the moombah master Dillon Francis.  Flosstradamus have recently released a new track titled Underground Anthem. Check it out and turn the subs up. FlosstradamusUNDERGR☢UND ANTHEM  - Download -   

Coming in second we have the artist known as Sound Remedy. Sound Remedy has been charting a lot of remixes on over the last year and seems to real have found his calling for melodic remixes. He recently remixed a track by Crystal Castles called Baptism and I think you will agree with me that it's really quite beautiful. Free download on soundcloud. Crystal Castles - BAPTISM (Sound Remedy Remix)   

Along with the likes of Flosstradamus, Clockwork and UZ he have fellow trap master Baauer. Baauer has recently been highlighted on some major tours and also is touring with the likes of Dillon Francis. Baauer released the following song, Harlem Shake a few months back but this song has been played in every trap set I can remember recently. It has a real catchy bassline to it. Grab the mp3 and fist pump the air. Baauer - Harlem Shake  

Next up we have Phoenix area local Protohype collaborating with CRNKN. They have teamed up to deliver some serious window shaking tunes. As the song title suggests this song does go "boom".  Soundcloud has the free download. CRNKN X Protohype - Boom  

Finally we have a group that has the same name as a favorite childhood board game, Candyland. These guys have some really unique remixes and I can always dance to. The song I chose by them is a remix but not any old remix. It just so happens to be a trap style remix of the insanely popular Korea Pop song Gangnam Style by Psy. Download and enjoy!
