Hey loves, hope you took Andrea DiLorenzo‘s Trap 101 to heart, because I’m about to show you how it all works out!
Meet DJ SOLO, the Chicago-based Chieftain of Bass that left all the trees talking at this year’s Electric Forest in Rothbury, Michigan. The warm and dusty woods came alive when he took the stage on Sunday evening, and as I joined the throng of dirty bodies I felt the energy too. TRAPS N TREES comes with the complete DJ SOLO package of locomotive drops, unique blends, and interesting samples. It’s not just a playlist of the most popular tracks with “trap” listed as their genre - there was clearly some digging involved in this set. As with any type of music, gems are hidden amongst garbage, but TRAPS N TREES will give you the perfect idea of what to look for in the emerging (re-emerging?) realm of 150 & complex hi-hats.
SOLO said it himself – “there is a new page of bass music about to be turned over.” And as we all came to in the aftermath of TRAPS N TREES, I began to wonder how much of the book had just been written in front of me.
As an added bonus let me also present you with the first track released under SOLO’s new project, Starship ∆cademy. You’d be wise to remember the name, as we’ll soon be seeing various artist collaborations covering a wide range of music attached to it.
