Over the past decade, trap music has grown to become one of the most influential and culturally relevant movements in music today. Taking cues from southern rap and characterized by its booming 808s and rolling hi-hats, trap originally gained momentum in Atlanta and has gone on to shape the sound of modern hip-hop, electronic and pop music.

As part of That Sound: ATL Trap week on Splice, this Firestarter is here to help you get inspired by the sounds of Atlanta. We’ve created a Live set for you containing the staples of trap music from crisp high-hat rolls to the deep of 808. Check out the sounds in it or grab the MIDI patterns to get started and share what you make with the Splice community. Winners will get a shoutout in our newsletter and blog. Learn what makes trap sound the way it does in our blog post on Atlanta trap:

Splice has teamed up with Sonny Digital to host a beat-making contest using samples from his artist pack. Grab Sonny's samples now and use this Firestarter to get a leg up on the competition.

PRIZES: Our favorite tracks inspired by the sound of Atlanta will get shoutouts here, in our newsletter, and our blog.
