The trap movement has been attracting all sorts of producers to this new wave of music. With so many “bedroom producers” its difficult to sift through all the nonsense to find artists with some credibility. Through my countless hours surfing the tubes of the internet once in a while I find an artist worth mentioning and sharing to the dear readers of MMIBTY.com
K L E V E R or Josh Winkler is turntable purist that has been drawn to the trap movement and has produced some of my favorite tracks to date. Born in 1977, K L E V E R has been obsessed with music since he was just a little tyke, focusing on rhythm and beat in 1997 K L E V E R began competitively DJing in every competition he could find. Linking up with well known DJ’s like Faust and Craze K L E V E R in 2000 won the national DMC championship title. He was inducted into the notorious “Allies crew” consisting of members such as one of the world legends DJ A-Trak. Traveling the globe with the likes of DJ Craze, the two of them released the infamous “Scratch Nerds” and in 2001 he successfully defended his title as DMC champion. As of recently his productions with Dirty South Breaks and Get Crunk beats have undoubtedly influenced his arrival into the trap movement.
