XAVAGE & Jon Casey are two of the brightest stars in trap music and they just unleashed their massive collaboration ‘Make It Clap’ via Elysian. ‘Make It Clap’ blurs the lines between bounce-inducing twerk and gritty hard-hitting trap. The vocals in the intro give it a playful dynamic while the underlying bass and gun clicks add a layer of filth. The drops pair chest-pound bass with wild sound design and driving percussion. It’s the type of track that will have you dancing one second and then marvelling at the audio enginuity the next. ‘Make It Clap’ is the modern twerk anthem you didn’t know you needed.
“It came together pretty well in the early stages. I pulled up to Michael’s crib in Downtown LA, he showed me the track and I was like… this is a classic. Has that early twerk trap feel. I felt that I just wanted to bring a different energy towards the end so I incorporated some HARD instruments to make the rest of the song fierce.” – Jon Casey
