The 808 is the Constant

Sometimes called the successor to dubstep, the trap sub-genre of hip-hop originated in the southern United States, circa the late 1990s. During the early aughts, innovative DJs and producers cranked the bpms up to 140, blended old-school trap with dubstep and techno, and in the process birthed modern EDM trap. A strong line exists between that original trap style and its current counterpart. Both are characterized by the iconic sound of the Roland TR-808 Rhythm Composer.

Raw, Yet Danceable

Roland Cloud distilled the essence of the EDM trap sub-genre and welded it to our Concerto engine, providing a tool-kit for creating in this or any genre. TRAPPED allows users to create beats right out of the box or sculpt the perfect sound for use on future tracks.
