Two tracks from Specimen A, one of which is a collaboration with James D’ley.
Trap trap trap trap trap tarp trap – When I first heard of Trap Music I though “Don’t you open that Trap Door!”* If you were born in the 90’s or outside the UK that will mean absolutely nothing to you. ‘Shut your Trap’ is a well produced of the moment, shall we say “specimen”. It gives pure house lovers a chance to embrace the new whilst at the same time firmly latching on to the past.
A sample from “Lost in Music” that would other wise be “lost in the Muisc” of millions of other remixes has been cleverly adapted into the new musical genre. Also sporting a sneaky ‘Snopp‘ sample and who hasn’t got love for the D.O.GG.
Although ‘specimen A’ has done very well to shine a spotlight on this track with tight production values the question is will the light on Trap as a whole fizzle and fade into darkness. I suspect not but as it’s own entity it will struggle. It will probably just become a part of the producer’s arsenal in the future or the go to for dramatic pacing on the dance floor with genre blurring DJ’s.

Specimen A – Shut Your Trap (Funkatech Records)
James Dley and Specimen A have given ‘Harder Better Faster Stronger’ a cheeky little over haul and as with “Shut Your Trap” above sticking to the original script is key to producing a nice upfront remix. Just enough to give the new fledgling clubber something to recognise and sneakily lead them into a merry dance. In this case it’s ‘HBFS’ melded with an Electro orgy that The Honda ASIMO Robot would “probably want to get in on”.
