The weekend has finally come and it’s time to go celebrate that hard work you sweat through each and every week. As a toast to the rise in numbers we have seen at TFN I decided to lay some tracks out for you guys and spill a little info about myself. I find that one can attain a good judgement of character by hearing the music one listens to on a day-to-day basis. As a writer and EDM aficionado, I get around to listening to the whole enchilada. Through recent articles, it has come to my attention that there are people who feel that many DJs will go to a show with an already compiled set. While I do not disagree, I find that there is music you can do this with and music that makes it almost impossible to just press play. You can go to shows and hear a DJ “mess up”, but that just means the DJ may be wasted (as Afrojack is guilty of many a time) or that the DJ is actually mixing tracks. I have a certain amount of respect for DJs that will go up live and make a set on the spot because it takes courage and talent to do so. The DJ also has the benefit of judging the audience’s response and making necessary changes when needed.
The Trap genre is one of a kind since it combines beats that are flowing at a dubstep pace, yet also incorporates a lot of R&B. Often, my friends will joke on me for exclusively listening to electronic music however lately I have seen the emergence of Hip-Hop and R&B artists following the EDM footsteps, producing some high quality music. Four years back my IPOD boasted names such as The Game, Lil’ Wayne, Bassnectar, along with the occasional dance tune. It’s nice to see that this former potpourri of music has linked together to give us some of the wildest and most unique music out today, Trap.
