Great course, only thing i'd recommend is playing more of the audio describing. However, saying that, gave great explanations, made it easy to understand. Anyone looking to make trap should find this very useful.

Even though I produce house/tech house, I'm always interested to learn the techniques of other styles which I hope to use to inject difference in my own productions. I found this course to be informative and thorough. The track Adam uses to illustrate his concepts is so exciting and groovy, that I wondered if should switch to making Trap full-time. Glad I took this course - it's well worth the time. 5-Stars!
