DJ Chuckie is on a whole new level, and has recently decided to create a new genre of music called Traphall, which is a combination of trap and dancehall.
DJ Chuckie is a man that has had a major influence on EDM music. He’s put in the work through his Dirty Dutch movement impacting some of the biggest names like Afrojack and David Guetta. Now DJ Chuckie has decided to take things to the next level and bring in a new sound that’s way beyond typical EDM tunes.
Recently he got a chance to chat with HipHopDX for an exclusive interview on how he came across this “Traphall” and how he plans to change the game with it.
“I obviously grew up with a lot of reggae music, a lot of Caribbean music, even calypso,“and I basically wanted to mess around with music again since the whole electronic music scene is kind of saturated at the moment. I just don’t want to be a part of doing the same old, same old kind of music. So I was, you know what, I always gotta be happy with whatever I’m doing. I wanted to do this Traphall project for ages now. I was actually like, you know what, let me do it right now. So I basically took all the stuff that influenced me as I was growing up, growing up with all types of music including reggae music. I was like let me infuse it and make it more 2016 suitable, so that’s basically, it’s a mix of reggae, dancehall and trap and Hip Hop.”
To show the world this new Traphall wave, he is producing a full EP showing off the new vibes. He dropped the first single titled “No Worries” featuring Trinidad James last week, and people have a lot of positive feedback towards the song.
It’s different, the song has a lot of different melodies and tunes that may be more of an acquired taste, but the energy of the song is on 1,000. When you hear the song it makes you just wanna get up and just dance.
