Mix: MistaJam – “Caught In A Trap”

MISTAJAM Mix: MistaJam   Caught In A Trap

Fridays are made for a few things: drinking, pizza, movies, and mixes. Nothing makes your Friday at work (or whatever you heathens do during normal human daylight hours) than a well-done mix, and MistaJam has gone all out in the name of Trap. Yes, the sound of Flosstradamus, Baauer, UZ, and many other proponents of the EDM-infused, 808-heavy sound that’s taken over many circles in 2012 is the focus of this “Caught In A Trap” mix.

MistaJam is one of the champions of future music for BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra, and his “Daily Dose” series has gone down as one of the best weekly mix series out there. He has a knack for tapping the right talent to bring forth a signature sound; for example, Flosstradamus recently started doing bi-weekly Daily Dose mixes that are serious Trap workouts. With the sound seemingly just starting to gain steam in the UK (with official remixes being commissioned by many EDM artists at a more regular pace), don’t expect this sound to die out soon.

Back in October, MistaJam put together this Daily Dose mix that seems to showcase the biggest and brightest tracks from this sound in 2012. Popular demand forced him to post it on SoundCloud, and once you hit “play” you’ll see how great of a decision that was. The blending of RL Grime‘s “Flood” with an Elvis loop singing “we’re caught in a trap” might win the Internet (at least for today), and the excursion that this mix goes on could be considered Trap 101 for those who might know a bit about the sound but don’t have the time to really go digging. Many of the scene’s biggest producers are covered, from the aforementioned Flosstradamus, UZ, and Baauer, to Lex Luger, Decibel, CRNKN, TNGHT, and plenty more.

If you’ve been caught in the Trap (with no care about how you’ll get out), revel/rejoice in the beauty that is this early Christmas gift from MistaJam. If you’re on the fence, allow MistaJam to show you the way to the light. Turnup!
