Dirty Chocolate - Awesome
Trap is dead. Long live trap. Just as it looked doomed to be the next dubstep, a genre reduced to a punchline, trap has seen a flowering of creativity by artists like Dirty Chocolate. His new track 'Awesome' artfully interweaves distorted, contorted samples from Danny Brown's "Blunt After Blunt" extolling the virtues of kush with luscious, chippy treble synths and thick bass — and all without asking "Damn son, where'd ya find this?". With artists like Colta and Two Fresh also pushing the boundaries of trap, there may be hope for the genre yet.
