News just in: Diplo (pictured above) has collaborated on a trap tune with DJ Fresh.
The trap sound has bubbled to prominence in 2012, with cult figures such as Gucci Mane influencing the work of bass music producers like Lunice, Hudson Mohawke and Machinedrum. Even pop stars like Nicki Minaj have jumped on the genre, which is a contemporary form of hip hop with origins in the southern states of America.
Diplo has always bigged-up figures like Gucci Mane and continues to plunder any colloquial strain of music he can lay his hands on. DJ Fresh just can't get enough of bass music. The match makes perfect sense.
DJ Fresh has released a comment, saying: "We’ve done a trap record together that Diplo wants to release on his Mad Decent label. It’s still early days about when it’s coming out, but I'm really excited. I’ve always been a big fan of his work".
