I think it’s safe to say we here at MMIBTY have climbed aboard the Trap train full steam ahead, ever since our first article proclaiming it the sound of Summer 2012. NYC-based producer Baauer, among others, has risen to the top of the game with this style of music (which is essentially Southern Crunk Hip-Hop with a new electronic twist…808s for days!). With HARD Day of the Dead quickly approaching November 3 in Los Angeles (just another reason I wish I lived on the West Coast), the crew at HARD have released two mixtapes to get you excited for the event. The most recent is Baauer’s 20-minute tease that really rubs me the right way, bringing a “blazing mix featuring some of his most popular original tracks and remixes, as well as some of his favorite tracks by his friends”. Click HERE to download (scroll down to the bottom right where it says “download” – you’ll need to enter your email address for the link). Check it out:

Is Trap not your thing? No worries – we’ve got you covered. The first installment of the HARD Day of the Dead mix series was brought to you by Italian duo Crookers. While this mix remains off the beaten path (you won’t hear any mainstream EDM tunes here), it’s a little more focused on a four-on-the-floor beat a la their grimey Techno/House sound. Don’t sleep on the “H3Y I C U PERCUL8-10” bootleg around 13:00. Click HERE to download. TRACKLIST AFTER JUMP!
