When you listen to commercial radio today, instrumental beats are likely to be the sound coming out of the speakers. For a while, urban music has been at a stand-still as far as production goes. Just recently, trap music has emerged as a mainstream genre. While it’s roots date back to the early 2000s, the genre is just now making it’s mark in the music industry.
Trap beats symbolize the struggle, the pain, and the victory in life in general. Producers all over are tapping into this new way of producing. These instrumentals have an authoritative presence and beg for attention. Dope trap beats are now being used in conjunction with traditional sounds in major R&B productions. With the new sound being so sought-after, the market has completely opened up for aspiring producers. There is now a demand that was almost non-existent before. So while economists claim that we are in a bad economy, these producers are cashing out with no problems.
Artists to the likes of 2Chainz, Young Scooter, and Trinidad James are only part of the clientele listing for these producers. Moreover, the artists who aspire to be like these major artists are a huge addition to that list. Old-head producers are now playing catch-up with the new wave of sounds coming in. You have new producers coming out faster than others who have been trying to make it for over 5 years, simply because they are making dope trap beats.
The competition in production is much stiffer than it has ever been since the emergence of this new sound. Everyone figures that he can make a lot of money by producing it. It is possible; they just have to do it the right way. Creating sounds that captures souls more fiercely is where trap music is heading. You have to be able to make heads bounce; make people mad, the whole nine. I do not see these types of beats going anywhere any time soon.
Taking in consideration that this genre is so closely related to Hip-Hop, some of thrown the style off as just another version of Hip-Hop. In reality, if you ask a Hip-Hop mogul what it is, he would get mad that you even made a comparison. Authentic Hip-Hop is a far-cry from trap music. It is not only a spin off of it, but a spin with a twist. Trap music is made more for the clubs and partying. Anytime a genre of music comes out that can make people dance and have fun, it is here to stay. Producers are in for a good treat with trap music being so fairly new to the general public. Dope trap instrumentals will run the radio for the next several years.
