Way back when the first Trapfest event occurred in Denver, I was able to talk to Bro Safari and he mentioned a release he was putting together with UFO and now, it is finally here! These two teamed up for the ‘Animal’ EP which features 10 tracks that span the genre board. Everything from trap, moombah, all the way to dubstep and drum n bass, this EP is versatile and insane. The title track, “Animal”, is a chill trap banger that makes unique use of vocal chopping throughout, as well as the blending of very fitting animal samples. “Bird Brain” is one of the two moombahton tracks and is a straight rager of a tune that is for sure a party starter. The only collab on this release was with Anna Yvette who provided beautiful vocals for the drum n bass track “Chimbre”, which concludes the EP in a wild and felicitous manner.
Make sure to head over to the Facebook pages of Bro Safari and UFO! and give them some love! After all, this EP was for the fans. Stay tuned for more releases from these two because they are two of the hottest producers out at the moment. I would not doubt another collaborative release in the future either! But for now, stick with this free release that will add incredible depth to your summer playlist.

A gift from the ‘Trap‘ gods themselves, Bro Safari and UFO! have bestowed upon us the futuristic trap tune “Burn The Block”! Track # 6 off their upcoming LP righteously titled “Animals” takes a step forward for Trap music with the aid of classic hip hop and a sample from the notorious Biggie Smalls. Their impeccably creative sound continues to get better and we couldn’t be looking more forward to the release of Animals on 5/22.
To help truly express the true beauty behind UFO! and Bro Safari‘s “Burn The Block” masterpiece, THUMP released this incredibly sexy baking show teaser! I would highly recommend watching the video, then checking out the full track below. Well worth it.

Also be sure to read up on the Top 5 Trap Producers who we think is running the trap game!
“Booty 2 The Ground” is one of the freshest Trap songs the Mad Decent crew released in late 2010. UZ and CRNKN became two of my favorite producers right after hearing this song for the first time. One of those songs you play again right after it ends and still feel the same high energy as the first time you heard it. Very excited to share their incredible VIP remix of the original because it is exactly how we pictured the VIP remix.
From the start of the track until the very last few seconds, UZ and CRNKN keep listeners on their feet with their unique production style. With sounds that make your stomach feel sick and your face look angry, “Booty 2 The Ground (VIP)” is even more hard hitting than the original. Since his fist release with Mad Decent, UZ has gone on to become a household name in Trap. He will be making his first appearance on American’s leading Trap tour: TRAPFEST in Albuquerque, NM on May, 23rd (Click Here for More Info!). Meanwhile, CRNKN is the New Hampshire bass wizard that already gave us bangers like “Signs of Life” and “Boom”. He has worked with countless artist including gLAdiator, UZ, Bro Safar. Both artist are definitely worth checking out. Enjoy!

Hustling straight to the top of the game, Trap music is the hot commodity of the EDM world. A post-dubstep sub-genre that was oddly awarded the name Trap, the thuggish transformation really plays on our gangster desires as humans to get turnt up. Trapfest is paving the way for Trap and Moombahton in the US with stacked lineups and sold out shows featuring the best and brightest in the game, including two of our top five already appearing on their US tour.
Top 5 Trap Music Producers
These are our thoughts and feelings on the current status of Trap and five producers who have shaped its growth to this peak. We understand and acknowledge the major influence that musicians such as Diplo, Baauer, and Flosstradamus had on trap’s initial surge, but we feel the real soldiers are the ones innovating with their music. Bro Safari, UFO, Mayhem & Antiserum, UZ, and Luminox all fall into this category for Moombroton’s Trap Game Top Five.

Born in Italy raised in Atlanta, Bro Safari aka Knick Weiller understands the Trap game better than any other producer we’ve been given the pleasure of experiencing. His flawless production quality and vocal manipulation make for an existential sound no matter the genre label; his time with Evol Intent resulted in countless Drum and Bass masterpieces. We talked with Bro Safari during his last visit to Colorado for Trapfest and his insight inspired our own thoughts on trap as post-dubstep instead of “Trap” the style of music many dirty south American producers have chosen. This video of Waka Flaka in the studio might help you understand the comical difference.
