With the rise of genres like Bass House and Riddim, it seems that the sub-genre of Trap which once reigned king side by side with Dubstep has taken quite the hit. If you've been to a festival in the last few months, it's clear that trap artist are looking to other genres much of the time in order to get the proper crowd reaction and energy from their sets. However, many trap fans are still alive and well, and while they do not argue that the genre has changed in it's presence in the community, many see it as a transformation rather than an absence. Classic trap sounds that were heavily influenced by Hip-Hop seem to be straying further and further from the EDM spotlight, however rising styles such as future bass and experimental trap have been thriving. It's hard to look at the front page of an electronic music fan's Soundcloud and to not see at least one future bass song shining among the rest. As for experimental trap, the rise of the genre has been long overdue and the community seems to be rejoicing as major trap names have given large play out to the sounds of the underground scene.
