Cloud rap (also known as trillwave) is a genre of hip hop music which through its methods of composition intends to produce a hypnagogic, dream-like aesthetic. Cloud rap takes influences from Southern hip hop where many compositions make use of stylistic factors typical of the genre, such as heavy use of drum machines and other trap music elements. What sets cloud rap apart from more contemporary forms of hip hop however is its seemingly antipodal approach to the latter – while hip hop artists generally want to reflect through their instrumentation an image of bravado, cloud rap artists display themselves as being true to themselves. Techniques employed by cloud rap artists to create this effect include ethereal, hypnogogic instrumentation and long harmonic vocalization that can either be

dbo:abstract
  • Cloud Rap ist eine 2009 entstandene Spielart des Hip-Hops, die sich durch sphärische Synthesizer-Klänge und den Einsatz von Auto Tune auszeichnet. Sie entstand zunächst in den Vereinigten Staaten. Durch Künstler wie Crack Ignaz, Yung Hurn (beide Österreich), LGoony (Deutschland) sowie PNL kam sie aber auch nach Europa. (de)
  • Le cloud rap, également appelé trillwave, est un sous-genre expérimental du rap, caractérisé notamment par des paroles souvent délibérément absurdes, et une structure musicale plus lente et plus aérienne que le rap traditionnel. La définition du mouvement est toutefois assez vague et ambiguë, puisque le cloud rap n'est pas fixé par des règles, mais par une « esthétique » semblable au mouvement artistique vaporwave ou au glitch art en terme d'imagerie. On note également l'utilisation de l'autotune, et de mélodies répétitives. (fr)
  • Il Cloud Rap è un genere di musica elettronica che unisce le sonorità della Chillwave con alcuni elementi dell'hip hop. Un elemento caratteristico di questo genere sono i testi assurdi o senza senso che vengono spesso cantati in maniera molto lenta rispetto al rap classico.Cloud rap (recentemente evoluto in Trillwave)[1][2] è distinguibile grazie ai beat eterei e sognanti(spesso costruiti attraverso campioni di vocalizzi senza parole, armonizzazioni e note lunghe).

  • Клауд-рэп, или триллвейв — направление хип-хоп-музыки. Его отличительными особенностями являются эфемерные, похожие на сон биты (в которых зачастую используются бессловесные вокальные семплы, в которых певцы гармонизируют, либо тянут длинные ноты, чтобы произвести эффект величественности) и абстрагированные, порой заведомо абсурдные тексты.

Cloud rap artists are usually bedroom musicians, creating their music typically on their personal computers and making their way to popularity through the means of the Internet (particularly hosting their music through sites like Soundcloud and YouTube). The lyrical themes of the genre usually concerns depression, sadness, drug use or absurd depictions of life. (en)
