Cashmere Cat – Mirror Maru
Deep trap music from Oslo-based producer Cashmere Cat. Through this song I learned a new word in Chinese: 陷阱 xiàn jǐng, which literally means trap, as in animal snare.
For a while it felt like trap was going down a similar sonic path as moombahton: a very heavy, distorted, hyper vibe. Good to hear deep trap, if that sub genre exists yet.
Live for the Funk said:
“It sounds like a mixture of some of that rad music from those Final Fantasy video games meets HudMo meets cheesy RnB meets all those cool distorted UK Bass vocals that we still can’t get enough of.”
