Top Trap


If 2011 was the year for dubstep and moombahton, 2012 was undoubtedly the year for EDM trap. Although trap finds its roots in Southern hip-hop, 2012 marks the year that the slow, aggressive 808 sound seeped into and came in contact with the greater American EDM scene, resulting in a slew of new producers and track releases under the “Trap” banner.

Under the clutter mainstream hype has created, we find a couple gems. In no particular order, GLT presents 2012’s best. Hopefully there’ll be plenty of getting low as you lend an ear to our top 50 picks, which include those that have made a substantial impact on the evolving EDM trap scene as well as our personal favorites. Stay lifted, fans and friends, and look out for the evolving set of sounds set in motion by EDM trap in 2013.
