I’ve been hearing people refer to this rising style of EDM as post-Trap music, Trap Rave, but I most commonly hear Trapstep. Though it’s still new and forming, this cross of Down South hip-hop tracks mixed with Electronic Dance Music is catching on fast. It’s not the newest thing, guys like A-Trak and Diplo, have done remixes like these in the past, but 2012 definitely brought more DJs/producers that love to cross genres to the forefront. We even saw DJ Green Lantern mess with it on his latest experimental mixtape, Altitude. But a newcomer by the name of Baauer really took off thanks to his single, “Harlem Shake.” It may not be for all of you, but give it a shot and let us know what you think.
Watch the interview and listen to “Harlem Shake” after the jump…
