i think they should have never started calling it trap music. when i first started listening to trap music, i was in high school listening to gucci, jeezy, paul wall, boosie, and shit so that's what i learned was trap. now even though production is very similar, the sound is completely different and to call edm trap just "trap music" is confusing and misleading. it should be distinguished as "edm trap" or "edmt" or some other name.
^ I feel you on that. Like I stated, Trap head producers jumped on the EDM crowd but threw in the bass, drum and snares into their set or remixed an EDM song w/ trap influence. The kids picked it up and called it Trap (EDM) of course.
To get an idea, watch this documentary where Trap producers are jumping on the scene.
