It has been a few years since Trap music made the astronomical leap into its own established genre, carving its own place for itself in the bass music community. Sidestepping the popularity of Dubstep amongst bass fans, Trap is showing no signs of slowing down as its edging closer and closer into mainstage festivals and onto commercial radio thanks to artists like DJ Snake, Major Lazer and Flosstradamus. The rise of Trap music doesn't stop at the commercial front with an unfathomable amount of artists coming out of the bedrooms and putting out some of the biggest underground trap tracks that are getting played out at festivals by all the big names.
Here in Australia, two of Australia's most established and dedicated trap producers Hydraulix and Oski are leading the charge of bass music talent that is 'turning up' ears all around the globe. As a major tour support DJ for almost every major trap producer that hits Australian shores, Hydraulix has been heavily involved in the local movement of trap music here in Australia. And after rubbing shoulders with the who's who in the bass music circuit, Hydraulix is one to know who's killing it right now, and who he should be keeping an eye out for in the future.
After recently mixing Ministry of Sound's latest compilation Turn Up Vol. 1 – Trap, we asked Hydraulix who his Top 10 Trap Producers were and why.
