Music has been a vital aspect in man’s life through the ages. Music is food for the soul. Music too, like everything else, has undergone a lot of transformation over time. There are numerous music styles catering to wide range of audience all over the globe.
For instance, rock music ruled the 60’s, disco was a craze in retro era, heavy metal spread like a virus during the 80’s; the 90’s was dominated by country and pop. New age music like electronica, trap and trance took over during Y2K.
We are living in the 21st century. Technology has taken over all the major parts of human life. Life has become fast paced. People have grown fond of everything that is quirky and rapid, including music.
TRAP, a kind of genre signified by catchy beats and funky rhythm, has become an instant hit with party-goers. It is characterized by frequent use of multi-layered hard-lined and melodic synthesizers, crisp, rhythmic snares, deep 808 kick drums and symphonic utilization of string, brass, woodwind and keyboard instruments that give an overall dark, harsh, grim, and bleak atmosphere for the listener which was the environment that led to its creation. It has a tempo of around 140 BPM.
