    What is the BPM for electronic trap music?

    I have read it is somewhere between 145 and 170 bpm but I was listening to Flosstradamus and his beats aren't nearly that fast.

    Thanks!

    Probably because of its recent fusion with dubstep, it seems the figure of 145 - 170bpm is based on counting the beat off in double-time.

    As in, counting it "1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4," with the snare on beat 3. This would give a figure probably around 130 - 170.
    But if you count it as "1...2...3...4..." you'll get a figure of 65 - 85bpm.

    140-170, In reality you can do it at whatever bpm you feel works for the song you're making.

    Just like any other genre, its all up to preference. Like a few other people stated, usually between 130-175ish

    realistically trap music is just dance inspired southern hip hop, therefore id be making it between 80 and 110 bpm. you wanna get a slow tempo crammed with fast hat rolls and poppy snares. so double time your hats over an 80 to 90bpm beat and space the kicks half time.. also check this out, go on youtube and type in "how to make a lex luger/808 mafia trap beat" theres heaps of tutes.

    like someone said, it can be any bpm...slower usually means darker...most of 2chainz beats start at 120 bpm...and trap isnt determined by bpm, its about what instruments are used; pitched 808's, timing varied drums/hats, plucks, arps, etc... this is a 2chainz type beat i made, bpm is 120 if i remember correctly

    BPM is not something you should be paying too much attention, even though you shouldn't forget about it at all.

    I don't produce trap, so I can't tell you what BPM the average trap song have. Even though, I can say that in dubstep, the average tempo of the music is 130-140BPM. But I managed to make one song with a tempo of 150BPM. Also, I produced one Drum and Bass remix song with a tempo of 190BPM, being the average tempo 150-175BPM. It's all up to you.
