Alison Wonderland & Trippie Redd Unite On Melodic, Experimental Trap / Hip-Hop Single "High"

alison wonderland trippie redd

Alison Wonderland is getting ready for her highly anticipated forthcoming album, AWAKE and has just shared one of the tracks we're most excited about. This time around the Aussie has linked up with quickly rising rapper Trippie Redd on "High" as we've been loving Trippie lately with his unique melodic take on the new hip-hop sound.

Alison recently shared album singles "No", "Church" and "Happy Place" before sharing this new one. Alison is always keeping us on our toes with each of her singles sounding different from the last. Here she lays the brooding foundation of shimmering chords, rolling synths and punching drums while Trippie's melodies take the focus until the breakdown around 2 minutes in where she combines skittering percussion with hard-hitting 808s and creeping, ominous synths to close out the experimental single. The video shows the two getting high until the drop when they get sent into a trippy cartoon world. See the music video below and enjoy!

Kaytranada Says He “Went Back To Making Trap”

Kaytranada trap

Kaytranada can do it all. Although the Canadian has a smooth, signature sound characterized by his funky basslines and lush instrumentation, he can hold his own with just about any style of production. He’s shown an incredible skill set blending his style of hip-hop and dance music but now he said he’s making trap and it’s too raw… we really can’t wait to hear what this entails. He actually linked up with MF DOOM to co-produce rising rapper Bishop Nehru's new project.

Kaytranada going hard would be an amazing change of pace from what he’s been up to lately and we can’t wait to hear it. He's gone a trap direction in the past most recently dabbled in this style on songs like  "Wimme Nah" with Vic Mensa and used some subtle trap-inspired percussion on "Glowed Up" but a full-blown trap song from Kaytra in 2018 could be crazy. Enjoy!
