XAVAGE & Jon Casey are two of the brightest stars in trap music and they just unleashed their massive collaboration ‘Make It Clap’ via Elysian. XAVAGE has been making major waves with releases on Quality Goods Records and Circus, and official remixes for 2¢ & JEANIE. Jon Casey has been on a similar ascent, dropping collaborations with legends like Craze and Dabow, plus releasing music with Sable Valley, DIVISION, Dome Of Doom and many more. The track expertly fuses the talented producers’ signature styles for an unforgettable trap banger.
‘Make It Clap’ blurs the lines between bounce inducing twerk and gritty hard-hitting trap. The vocals in the intro give it a playful dynamic while the underlying bass and gun clicks add a layer of filth. The drops pair chest-pound bass with wild sound design and driving percussion. It’s the type of track that will have you dancing one second and then marveling at the audio ingenuity the next. ‘Make It Clap’ is the modern twerk anthem you didn’t know you needed.
“I knew for a while now that Jon’s and I styles would really compliment each other. When Jon was on tour we linked up in LA and I showed him the track in its early stages. It had my signature bounce and groove which Jon then took and brought it to a whole new level.”
“It came together pretty well in the early stages. I pulled up to Michael’s crib in Downtown LA, he showed me the track and I was like… this is a classic. Has that early twerk trap feel. I felt that I just wanted to bring a different energy towards the end so I incorporated some HARD instruments to make the rest of the song fierce.” – Jon Casey
