What Is Trap?

Trap is the sound nowadays and it’s what many music producers are moving towards and creating. Hard hitting, window rattling 808’s. Snare rolls that take the beat from cool to ”YoooOoooooooOOoOOo!!”

Trap started in the south, mainly in Atlanta. It leans on 808s with a long delay (glide), intricate hi-hat patterns, synths with an atmospheric sound, and synthesized drums. Overall the sound is dark and melancholy, but not sad ( if that makes sense).

Some of the common instruments include pianos, strings, and many other orchestra sounds including choirs.

It started in the late 90’s but really gained traction in the early 2000’s and around 2010 crossed over into mainstream popularity.

It eventually grew bigger than hip hop and moved into R&B and more general electronic music and spurned sub genres such as Latin Trap.

Needless to say it ‘s quite popular.

And the sound is all grounded in the drum loops.

So I wanted to help producers get started, so I made the Trap Drum Guide.

Overall catchy beats that make you bounce and make the screw face at the same time.

Or if you’re like me, just play it real cool and nod your head with little attitude.

Either way, trap is the sound people are feeling today.

And if you’re a producer you need to knock out trap drum loops to get your trap beat going.

Here’s an example of a few trap drum loops created with the Trap Drum Guide along with some melodies and chords layered in.

What Can You Do With The Trap Drum Guide?

The guide will kick you off with a dope drum pattern. Add in melodies to take it to the next level. Start with these trap drum loops and layer in melodies to make it your own beat. Add in special FX like sirens, alarms, horror fx.

Layer in one-shots if you want to have some bangers that don’t really rely on melodies. Drop in horn stabs, or key riffs to make your beat stand out.
