CRNKN is one of the first producers I became aware of who was producing trap music when it was in its (relatively) early stages and, in many ways, introduced me to the possibilities of the sound. Formerly a dubstep and hip-hop instrumental producer, CRNKN really found his niche as trap took to the main stage in dance music and he now graces us with his Future EP – eight free tracks of well-produced trap music by someone who’s quite a bit more than your average bedroom producer with an 808 drum kit on their pirated copy of Ableton. While trap productions are polarizing for many, what I like about this EP is it offers a bit of everything including ‘traditional’ trap (“Eris”, “O2020O”), gangster trap (“Da Realest”, “Handz”) and some of the hardstyle x trap ‘trapstyle’ (“”Dgtl Wish”, “Go”). I’ve included my favorites below and you can pick up the whole thing below that.
