I’m not typically one to post trap, but this track struck me as one that deserves a little hype boost, although already generating noise of its own accord.
The track, “Sidewinder”, is a collaboration between CutTHROATKid and SOSA, brought to us by the good people at High Instensity Records, a label who has recently garnered my favor. They have a special place in my graces, for they (along with the likes of Adapted Records) have really put Glitch Hop on the map this year with a stream of quality releases.
But that’s all for another post. “Sidewinder”, in the meantime, is not your average clap-trap trap. CutTHROATKid and SOSA have here created a well balanced and organized mix, incorporating subtle flavor from more ethereal house, as well as quick, stuttered breaks from more glitchy genres and minimal dub womps (sounds, whatever).
As I said before,”Sidewinder” is a well balanced, with something for everyone, though technically, we’ll call it trap. Props to High Intensity for carrying the record.
Electronic music is the only art form that has given me unrelenting hope for the survival of our species. I study criticism in the north country and track the scene in an effort to put to words the familiar feelings that escape most of us and are reduced to terms of “awesomeness.”
