“Trap is building strength off [hip-hop]. Rappers and trap artists are starting to pay attention to this EDM thing to form this third thing. It isn’t EDM trap, it isn’t rap music, it’s something new.” – Kenny Beats (Loudpvck)
As expected, trap duo Loudpvck (made up of New York City hip-hop producer Kenny Beats and LA electronic producer Ryan Marks) turned the hell up at Naga Nightclub in Cambridge on November 13th.
Although Kenny (1/2 pack) couldn’t make it due to some unconfirmed injury, Ryan took over the stage solo with effortless swag (largely due to his amazing signature stache) and head banging energy. The crowd was totally feeling their trademark dirty trap and heavy bass slapping throughout the set.The talented twerk dancers accompanying him on stage also added to the ratchet, hip hop vibe of the music.
Probably the most epic song to see live was WYLIN, a well known legendary collaboration with Paper Diamond. The hardcore Loudpvck fans started to jump and sing along as soon as they heard the familiar beat (myself included).

Another noticeably dope song played that night was a more recent collaboration with GladPvck (Gladiator + Loudpvck) – Tony, and of course their popular twerk remix of Shakedown (Jackal).
Anyone who has been to Naga will agree that it is a pretty intimate venue, and I cannot complain seeing as he was performing probably less than 3 feet in front of me. Overall, this was an unforgettable experience of jamming out to the dirtiest of trap along with fellow Loudpvck enthusiasts and a talented laid-back dude with an awesome stache.
