Dance music and rap have always been paired together. Going back to the origins of rap, the first major hip-hop song, “Rapper’s Delight,” was rapped over the disco record “Good Times” by Chic. Fast forward to 2014 and Lil’ Jon, no stranger to EDM having already worked with Laidback Luke, LMFAO, and DJ Snake, and also being the rapper seeming most sampled for hype tracks, shouts his trademark “Let’s Get Fucked Up” over aggressive dirty electro beats by MAKJ. Is it Shakespeare? No. Will it be massive at every pool party during Miami Music Week and Winter Music Conference? Yes. Coming from down under, “Trumpsta” exploded on the Melbourne bounce scene and gave 19 year-old producer/DJ Contiez his breakout hit. Based on an insanely catchy trumpet hook, the banging Djuro remix plays the perfect backing for rapper Treyy G’s playful verses. Yes, trumpet plus gangsta equals “trumpets,” and the two fit perfectly together unlike anything you’ve heard before. The video is quite funny as well with the rapper dressed as Donald Trump and controlling people with his vigorous hand motions (as opposed to the cash of the original). Both tracks are not safe for work in their original versions, but there are clean versions available for the impending commercial crossover here in the US.
