What Is Hybrid Trap?

Recommended Posts

One branch of trap that is gaining a particularly strong following is the “hybrid trap” movement, which highlights the synthesis of dubstep’s bass and grime sounds with trap music’s hip-hop and 808 drum influences.

Examples:

So basically, Hybrid Trap = Trap + Dubstep.

If anyone feels it necessary to flesh this out this basic explanation, please do so below :drinks:

Pitched 808's, timing varied drums/hats, plucks, arps, etc

Half-time or double-time

Rap/no-rap/vocals/samples

Rise/no-rise with deep 808 drops

BPM 70 - 110 ... or 140 - 180

So far I've been playing it by ear, there is no one single blueprint to making it. It's not like "riddim" and limited to a general "cookie-cutter" production style, as you can see with the tracks posted already there is a lot of variation, different production style and different takes one the sound from artist to artist, but one thing that remains common in all the tracks is that heavy, almost dubstep-ish bass feel over the trap style beats that I hear. The stabby synths & bass growls over the 808's & hi hats is wicked! And of course there is the all too common lex luger style chants, and various other rap/hip-hop sampling.

I find it very*different* from other generic Trap acts such as UZ, Floss, Hucci, Alex Young, LOUDPVCK etc. etc., and by *different*, I mean it's a noticeably heavier trap sound all together.

I'm just as new to this as anyone else here but I think I'm on the right track. Check out these articles I posted in other "Hybrid Trap" suggestion thread that was published last year regarding the growth of "Hybrid Trap" & emerging artists;

Dooossss

Lmao people on clubland always trying to invent new sub genres smfh. Trapstep makes more sense as a genre name and people have been using it for almost 4 years now. Every time people give specific ass explanations of what some bullshit "new" sub genre should be you limit people and cause unnecessary confusion.
