Infusing elements from Moombahton, Dubstep, Drum and Bass and even Hardstyle, the Trap music is a very new genre of electronic dance music. It gained popularity in 2012, with producers like Diplo, Baauer, Flosstradamus and Dillon Francis supporting this genre. The "electronic" trap as we know is derivated from the Hip-hop trap genre, which, in turn, originated in the early 2000's from Southern hip-hop and crunk music.
Despite being a recent genre, there are some variants that mix elements from other genres, thus creating sub genres. Known sub genres include:
- Hard Trap
