What can I say? I’m a sucker for dark ambient Trap music with a lot of bass. It’s the truth. So, when I checked out Metrojolt’s new Soundcloud page (follow us if you haven’t already) and saw that CRNKN had a new beat which he said he “wrote on a plane awhile ago”, I jumped at the present he gave away for free. CRNKN’s ‘Father Time’ is everything about Trap that I like, simplified to its roots, slowed down and combined with a dark encompassing aura. It’s epic-ness is inherent in it’s simplicity and slow tempo; the track has a certain emptiness that draws the listener in further. It just goes to show you don’t need to over-clutter your real trap shit with 808 kicks, stutter claps and hihats that seem to be created from the same damn producer sitting in his studio basement in Detroit. Thanks CRNKN, gotta love the originality from one of Trap’s leading purveyors.
If anybody asks you “Damn son, where’d you find this”, just point them here. Oh and the best part? This track might have a rapper over it someday, and that might be pretty fucking rad.
