[Album] Trillwave: “Trap Godz Vol. 3”

Trillwave, the dance music DJ duo of Michael “Twerkle” Cutrone  and Brooks “TrapLee Jones” Jones have been making a name for themselves since hitting this year’s SXSW hard and gaining the attention of listeners with their trap-heavy production and turned up live shows. The pair began working together in early 2012 with a shared passion for cross-genre tinkering and, on the strength of their performances in Austin, have established themselves as one of the premier dance music acts to emerge from the growing Chicago and Midwestern scenes that are beginning to re-discover dance elements after creating the genre a generation ago.

Their latest release, Trap Godz Vol. 3 is the latest installment in Trillwave’s continuing “Trap God” series that has paced Cutrone and Jones as they work on their upcoming full-length project, due out in the Summer of 2014. It is a continuation of earlier work, that is for sure, but with unique tweaks and renderings that explore cosmically different atmospheres than earlier releases. The project was held back two months due to finagling and tinkering and the result may be one of the strongest to come from Trillwave to this point. Catch Trillwave coming through your city sometime soon, or at their monthly residency at SoundBar in Chicago’s Loop.
