juuku brings Emotion to the Trap Genre with ‘closer’

juuku - closer EKM.CO Feature

Getting into the world of music as a producer these days is extremely hard. No matter what genre is in question, it is becoming harder and harder by the day. Things get even harder with one of the sound flavor of the moment. Currently, that is the case with Trap music. When you start as an anonymous producer, like juuku is, things get even harder.

But juuku seems to be bringing down these obstacles quickly and is becoming a rising star in the world of Trap music, earning the respect of established artists like RL Grimes. This is not only confirmed by his outstanding remixes (like his remix of Flume’s “Rushing Back”) but compositions that come under his own name, like his most recent “closer.”

If the title of this new juuku single sounds ‘close’ to that Joy Division title, you wouldn’t be too much off the mark. In it, he is, both musically and through the telling video, speaking about time, as he puts it, “𝘸𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘦 𝘪 𝘬𝘦𝘱𝘵 ⁣⁣𝘨𝘦𝘵𝘵𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘳𝘦𝘫𝘦𝘤𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯𝘴 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘪𝘵 𝘮𝘢𝘥𝘦 𝘮𝘦 𝘴𝘦𝘤𝘰𝘯𝘥 ⁣⁣𝘨𝘶𝘦𝘴𝘴 𝘮𝘺𝘴𝘦𝘭𝘧 𝘢𝘴 𝘢𝘯 𝘢𝘳𝘵𝘪𝘴𝘵.” But in many ways, with “closer” he is actually bringing in some fresh winds into the Trap music genre. ⁣⁣Absolutely no reason to second guess himself!

Throughout the track, juuku intersperses his intricate, hard-hitting Trap rhythm changes and energetic drops with sparse piano and electronically altered vocals where the one word you can surely clearly hear is, “hoping.”

Juuku’s “Closer” represents both outstanding sound design, the effect of which is amplified by the excellent visuals for the video version he also prepared. All this makes “closer” an effective and punchy Trap track with a great emotional depth. Pay close attention to this track, we might be witnessing the rise of a new Trap star.
