Metay – Astronaut: Energetically Fresh New Wave Trap

If you’re looking for hard-hitting Trap to add to your playlists, look no further than the latest single from Metay “Astronaut”. The verses to the up and coming artist’s latest single run through with plenty of relentless aggression. While the vocals may fade into the instrumental mix a little too much, the passion and the energy which went into the hit is still perceptible throughout. Guala Beats certainly did a lot of justice with the production of the single which kicks off slow and wavy before kicking off into a mix which is sure to be appreciated by any fans of Lil Peep, Travis Scott, and Lil Xan.

It really would be no surprise if the London-based artist blew up after creating such a viscerally raw, yet accessibly magnetic mix.

Tyler Rose – Wasted Life: Organically Raw New Wave Trap

It doesn’t take any amount of psychic vision to see Tyler Rose blowing up with his accessibly sticky sweet New Wave Trap sound. “Wasted Life” is the first track to be dropped by the up and coming artist, songwriter and producer – but don’t expect any hints that Tyler Rose is fresh from inception.

Urban artists have been under a lot of fire in recent months for the lack of relatable content put out in 2018, yet, Wasted Life paints one of the most poignant pictures of our contemporary society and apathy.

No holds were barred in Wasted Life, which may only run for 2:22-minutes, but the depth of the lyricism paired with the intricately smooth flavour of the beat will make sure that you won’t forget the haunting energy of the track for long after it has faded to a close.

The Era – ROCKSTAR: Resonantly Sweet New Wave Trap

If an up and coming New Wave Trap artist makes you fall a little bit in love with them from the first verse, you know that you’ve just stumbled across an absolute gem of an artist. With the New Wave reinvention of Trap, we’ve seen a lot of artists becoming a lot more candid with what they feel – that can either grate on you from the get-go or hook you into the progression of the track. With his latest mix “ROCKSTAR” The Era has created the sharpest lyrical hooks in what I can guarantee will be your new Trap earworm. With minimal effects on the vocals, ROCKSTAR feels raw, and the lyrics to the track don’t need encouragement to resonate. And there’s no over exaggerating how fire the flow of the beats behind ROCKSTAR are.

Sam O’Cain – The Night: The Most Resonant New Wave Trap Mix You’ll Hear This Year

The Night is the latest New Wave Trap hit from up and coming artist Sam O’Cain; in his inventive new mix you’re treated to the weight and resonance which you’d expect from a Shoegaze track mixed with the vocals or a more archetypal Lo Fi Trap track.

His pioneering composition has a cathartically reverberant melody which is brought to life through the kicks of the 808 beats and the lucid waves of synth which carry through the track to create the perfect track to vibe-out to. The pensive lyrics to The Night alongside the classical strings add in even more emotion as elements of the past and present weave together in a fluidly sublime way. The spatial effects on the track allow the sentimentality of The Night to hit you even harder as you tentatively await the next perfect instrumental arrangement. In short, there isn’t another artist out there that I’ve happened across offering what Sam O’Cain does, there may be a lot of imitations of Lil Peep, but it’s tracks such as The Night that prove there are so many different avenues to take New Wave Trap in by mixing digital and acoustic instruments.

Suicide Factory – Grave: Melancholically Momentous New Wave Trap

It would seem that before his tragic death Lil Peep inspired swathes of New Wave Hip Hop artists to take to the mic to spit their emotive bars. I’ll always find an offering of vocal fragility and actual real human emotion contained in Hip Hop refreshing, which is exactly why I loved Suicide Factory’s latest track Grave. With a name like Suicide Factory, you’d never expect an overly hyped mix with a sickeningly happy sentiment, but what Suicide Factory created was infinitely more resonant. The Trap beat to the up and coming artists latest single Grave carries plenty of emotive rhythm independently from the harrowingly melancholic lyrics. Even if the sentiment to the track is pretty down, the kick and the snare of the 808 beats work in perfect contrast to the vocals and lyrics. Even with the effects laid over the vocals, you can pick up on that timelessly sweet cockney twang possessed by the London, UK based emerging artist.
