I have recently developed a rather unsavory addiction to Trap music, a hybrid genre of music that fuses aggressive hip-hop with dub-step and electronic elements. Characterised by hypnotic droning bass-lines, skittering hi-hats and sinister hooks, the Trap movement is being fronted by emerging contemporary electronic producers such as Baauer and Flosstradamus, who have acquired their fame from the indomitable power of Soundcloud.
