Q: What are some popular songs from some of the producers at the event?
A: This song by K-Theory has been really popular in our room lately: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JSDOTYAzU2k. Apex Rise also did a trap city release for this song of his: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AjGFDngVSrE. Personally, my favorite song is this remix by Onderkoffer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1AiWG_P_z7c.
Q: What are your thoughts personally about the festival?
A: I’m hoping that it turns out just as great, if not better, than the 1 million subscriber event we had a while back. We had so many people come in to see their favorite producers and talk to them; it was really neat to see the producers talk and interact with their fans personally. I also am very excited for the event, not just as a mod, but as someone who loves Trap music. It’s always so much fun to have everyone come together and listen to the awesome mixes that the producers have made especially for the event. As Trap music has become more and more mainstream lately, I feel that this event will bring a lot of positive attention to plug.dj and to our community!
Interview With Flagz:
Q: What are your thoughts/hopes for/about the event?
A: I hope that the event will go down in plug.dj history as one of the biggest and most memorable events hosted on the site! I anticipate that everyone attending is going to have an awesome time listening to some dope sets from some of the best producers today.
Q: What’s your favorite song that you’ve produced? What’s the story behind it? Why do you like it?
A: This is probably my favorite song that I have produced. Although it’s not necessarily my best song in my opinion, it’s the track that I’ve had the “biggest ride with,” so to speak. It has its faults and errors here and there, but no track can ever be perfect, you know? I just love the song because it was that one track that pretty much got me to where I am today, and I couldn’t be more grateful for that opportunity. In terms of the story behind the song, it’s quite a simple one. I sat in front of my computer for four straight days with notes lying everywhere of how I wanted the track to turn out in the end and of exactly what kind of elements I wanted in the track. I promised myself that when I released it, I wasn’t going to send it around to promotional channels; I just wanted to see how far the song could carry itself. I don’t know if I got lucky, but Andre from Trap Nation found my track and asked me one day if he could upload the track to his channel. From then, the song has pretty much exploded.
Q: How did you get involved with Trap City? What do you love about Trap music?
A: I got involved with Trap City on October 17th, 2012; the very first track that I heard from their channel was “Bear Pause – 808 city.” I don’t know why it caught my attention, but I’ve been a subscriber ever since (and now my song “Outta Here” has twice as many views as “808 city,” which is pretty crazy when I think about it). What I love about trap music is the various forms that it can be disguised as. It’s not just a cookie-cutter, formulaic production style and sound like a lot of other genres out there can be. You can have everything from a heavy-hitting XVII track to a hyped-up beat from Diskord yet still call it trap. I just love trap and all its forms in general!
