Trap music is a music genre which originated in the early 2000’s from Southern hip-hop and crunk music. While its sound and influences have undergone a number of developments since its start, it can often be characterized by its sweeping sub-bass, crisp snares, scratching, heavy 808 basslines, layered synths, repeated samples, and sped up hi-hats. Initially an underground genre, trap music first experienced mainstream exposure in 2003 after the success of a number of landmark albums, including T.I.’s Trap Muzik, Young Jeezy’s Let’s Get It: Thug Motivation 101 and Gucci Mane’s Trap House. In 2010, trap music experienced a renewed success with releases by artists including Waka Flocka Flame, Rick Ross and Gucci Mane.

In 2012, a new movement of electronic music producers and DJs emerged who began incorporating elements of trap music into their works. This helped expand its popularity among electronic music fans. A several stylistic offshoots of trap developed, which in the latter half of 2012 gained a rise in viral popularity and made a noticeable impact on dance music.
