Trap Music in London
Trap music, originating from southern American hip-hop, has started to gain a lot of attention around the world. Blending hip-hop and gangsta sounds with down-pitched vocals and drum machine samples, resulting in an innovative and fresh sound. Unfortunately there are no clubs in London pushing only trap music, but Trap nights are getting more popular and many venues in London are hosting them. Here's a list of clubs hosting some trap music events.
