The Sound of Trap

The Sound of Trap compilation by Ministry of Sound
Released 23 December 2013

Hip Hop and Rap's bigger badder brother, we bring you The Sound of Trap.

Spawned from the depths of the southern US Hip Hop scene and often characterised by its crisp snares, repeated samples and sub-low basslines, Trap has been versed by some of the biggest rappers in the game including Kanye West, Jay Z and Rick Ross. 

2012 saw the fusion of electronic music and Trap beats, with Diplo’s Mad Decent label leading the charge into the charts and beyond.

We kick off this epic release with an exclusive edit of DJ Fresh vs Diplo’s smash hit "Earthquake" featuring bass legends Vato Gonzalez & Jaguar Skills. Continuing to delve into the depths of sub-bass hits more tracks from Major Lazer, 2 Chainz, RL Grime and the underground smash TNGHT - "Higher Ground" follow. This really is an all-star collection of speaker shaking sub-bass beats!
