Trap

Chynna
Label: 
N/A

Chynna is a rapper from Philadelphia that has been linked with several members of the A$AP Mob, but holds her own with her solo material. Her latest offering is "MadeInChynna" a Hudson Mohawke produced banger that Chynna sounds so good over. She has a super relaxed flow, it can feel at times that Chynna is holding back, but other songs on her SoundCloud, such as "Glen Coco" prove otherwise.

Chimes:

Has that lo-fi, 8-bit sound that is gaining some traction in some underground dance music (IDM, namely), some heavy horns, and some clean, melodic chimes. Intro and breakdown are dreamy, verses are heavy and grimey- dropped in with the deep "WHO." Overall not bad, but not personally a fan of the noisiness of 8-bit.

The modern day auto-tune luminaries that are Future and Young Thug have come together tahnks to Metro Boomin, and have come with a song that has sounding as aggressive as you'll ever have heard them. You won't hear much of the auto-tuned yelps of Future, and the wails of Young Thug that sounds like they've come from some robot planet, "Chanel Vintage" has them yelling about buying vintage Chanel for themselves, for woman, and how much cooler they are than you.

In the words of Miley Cyrus, "We can't stop!" Just like she can't stop twerking on stage, while this EP is playing, you won't be able to stop twerking (guys included). There is hella trap in these tracks so it's just right for every rave and club that you're gonna here this in. You will literally lose control of your body when listening to these 4 songs and there isn't much more to say except that these songs BANG! The twerk genre in EDM is rising and rising quickly so look out for more of this stuff in the near future.

Here we go with the remix king himself, R3hab. He recently hit one million fans on Facebook so he decided to produce a free song to celebrate this accomplishment with his fans. R3hab is most known for his remixes of popular songs, the most recent of which being Express Yourself (R3hab and Diplo Remix) feat. Nicky Da B so it's refreshing to hear a song by him created by him. This club banger will get you out your seat with the repeated vocals of "pump the party" and you will definitely be sweating by the end when the trap beat kicks in.
