exLective's Trap Style's Explanation:

Trap:

We all know the original trap, that kind of medium large bassline, pew pew pew lazer sounds and often, I really mean often repetition of the sample. Classic examples would be:

Chill:

Chill trap is now something completely different, it can be heavy aswell but to vibe it somehow sets you free and you can just let go, enjoy peacefully and listen. My examples here are:

And something chilly I made myself. :)

Trill:

Now this is my favourite - trill and dirty sound. Trill in trap, is like deep in dubstep (but better lul) - its that that simple, heavy, naaasty bassline with simplified, yet really effective amount of effects. Examples here would be:

Dirty South:

Dirty south on the other hand is just creepy. It has those scary background synths and someone's spitting over them. Stuff like Rick Ross, Tyga, Gucci etc. Examples here would be:

Swoldiers Explanations in Layman's terms:

My Dumb'd down Explanation (Will add examples later):

Chill-

You have the chill trap section for people who want to hear something smooth and soothing, No lasers or pewpew's in this one.

Trap-

You have the Trapstyle thread for a bunch of Lazers and PewPewPew's and "Damn Son where'd you find this" samples and a bunch of over the top over used name samples.

Don't ever post a song like this, but if you do at least you'll know where it goes.

Trill-

You have the trill section for all the Hip Hop influenced rap beats some with and some without vocals.

And just a note: We are soon going to be adding a future section and possibly a trapstyle section depending on what CheifKronic decides.

Also the Trill and Dirty South subsections are going to be fused into one section so anything "hood" is going to be found there.

THANKS for your PATIENCE! And GOOD HUNTING (beer)

Love,

Well I was going to add an explanation but these guys really covered it well. I'm gonna subscribe to this post so that if anyone has any questions about where to post anything they can post it hear and then we can help answer or clarify. But first please read over what Swol and exLec posted above.

Thanks guys! (approve)

U welcome mate ^^ It was really Chief who was behind that. He may be adding a trapstyle section for what you two believe to be trapstyle and then Im sure all others will eventually learn. If you want to message me a description of what it is we can include it for if the subsection is put up.

I would suggest fusing the Dirty South with Trill only with one remark - only intrumentals of tracks from all these hip-hop artists would be posted. Anything else should be plain rap

I think that this should be sticky in every trap sub-forum. I know that trap (or trapstyle, or whatever) has a lot more tracks than the rest of the sub-forums, but it happens a lot of times that I open a new track in the trap section and see trill or chill trap.

Oh, and I would really appreciate if some of you moderators could PM me with the RSS feed to trap and trill sections.
