Alright folks, I could notice that you were not really aware of what’s going on the other Channel’s side. Only 20 miles and you miss so many things !
If you tired of the Grime Music, let’s discover the Afro Trap Music. Its name is quite explicit, it’s a mix between traditional African rhythmics and Trap Music.
Basically the kind of thing that’s sounds improbable. But as surprising as it can be, both of these influences are matching perfectly well. The African beats give a very dancing aspect while the Trap bring the hardness to the sound. An explosive cocktail in short.
This movement has just shot up in France last year, to the extent that it has become one of the main trend in the French rap scene. Its best representative and pioneer is called MHD. This 22 years old guy has cleared out everything last year. With his first album “MHD”, he gained the double platinum disk. For the moment, with only 13 video clips in his Youtube channel, he reached almost half a billion views…
Lucky you, this guy is going to play a one-off show for the M.I.A’s Meltdown the Sunday 11th of June at the Royal Festival Hall.
It’s the unique opportunity for you to discover in live this new phenomenon. And maybe, who knows, the Afro Trap will get you.
