S. Fidelity turns trap music on it’s head and makes something you’ll want to listen to! (audio)
I like it when a producer can take a genre that I generally have absolutely no time for, in this case trap, and flip it on it’s head and turn it into something I like. Check out S. Fidelity’s newest track “Paper Party” for example. Sure, it has all the trademarks of a typical trap track: a half-time beat, rattling hi-hats, enough bass to destroy windows, and a kick and snare that sounds suspiciously like an 808. Yet, despite the overused frame work, this is one of the freshest tracks I’ve heard in awhile. I love the sunny, mellow vibes, and the way synths dance intricately and playfully around the song. It makes for a song that I’ve already had to listen to 5 or 6 times during the course of writing this up just because I couldn’t get enough it. Throw in some tasteful hip-hop and other assorted samples for good measure and you have the makings for what could be one of the better releases this year.
