Dat Beat – Meet Me in the Trap (Original Mix) [Free Download]
As trap comes into its own, its trajectory is in some ways mirroring that of tech house. Given the genre’s relatively straightforward core ingredients, trap tracks are proliferating rapidly as more and more producers hop aboard the burgeoning bass-heavy bandwagon. In an increasingly cluttered sea of copy-cat tracks, it takes innovative sounds and memorable sampling to rise to the top.
Brooklyn-based producer Dat Beat has achieved both of these aims on his latest original offering “Meet Me in the Trap.” While wisely incorporating a prominent Yung Joc vocal sample, Dat Beat eschews the genre’s more overplayed elements, opting for church bells over air horns and modular bleeps over squealing saw waves. By avoiding unnecessary inclusions, he’s given himself the luxury of focusing on the well-executed vocal variations that carry the track. Dat Beat saw fit to release the track as a free download through Kathaus Records, so meet him in the trap at the link below.
