Trap House hybrid bangers are heavily featured on Jake Millions‘ latest studio effort, “Sex God” – an over-the-top, no-holds barred EDM epic. Not afraid to shy away from big sounds, you are sure to hear this record slapping on the big speaker stacks at your local music festival next summer. The album starts with “Time to Shine”, a trip hop-influenced track that is an inspirational ode to perseverance in the face of great odds. Next are “Sex God” and “Streets Gotta Eat”, two electro house influenced songs that defy categorization: both bring intense dance energy over catchy and driving hooks. The album switches into dubstep and makes use of an unmistakable Mortal Combat sample on the drop of “Friendship”, which transitions into the symphonic basses of the more experimental “Down For Whatever”; a song that is true to its title. Vancouver rapper Emotionz jumps on “Wait a Minute” in a heavyweight collaboration that sees him spitting rapid fire rhymes over a Berlin-techno inspired experimental dance track. Sounds like a recipe for disaster but it actually works alot better than expected. The next two songs, “Flooded” and “Follow the Drip” take it back to the trap house as they are both dark compositions reflecting gritty street life. “Thirst Trap” takes it back to the club with the electro house vibe and searing synths, and is reminiscent of Knife Party. The album concludes with “Season 2”, a trap-dubstep hybrid track that sums up the direction Jake took on his second album. Edgy and gritty, it takes its time guiding the listener to its huge and unexpected drop. The dubstep touches are nice, as it’s clear that Jake Millions is moving to a Trap House hybrid sound with more energetic dance tracks in his live performances.
