Creating a techno trap mashup track on BandLab

Make a techno trap mashup track on BandLab

We’d love to meet the first person who thought it was a good idea to put jelly into a peanut butter sandwich. And just as the first PB&J would’ve probably been seen as slightly ludicrous, the first ever mashup of musical genres must have been pretty mind-blowing.

But we’re living in the 21st century now and even the unlikeliest of genres could one day meet at a surprise party, and boom! We got ourselves a hit. 

Music making is now more accessible than ever. With BandLab, you’ve got access to a whole suite of powerful and intuitive music editing tools at your fingertips, all for free. For example, you can make music with an extensive library of more than 10,000 samples from music genres that couldn’t be more different.

In this tutorial, we show you to combine trap beats and vocals with techno sounds and atmospherics to create a techno trap mashup, right here on BandLab’s web Mix Editor

Start creating your mashup for free on BandLab’s Mix Editor. Who knows? Your song may not be the crossover we need, but it just might be the crossover we deserve.
