ISOxo may be one of the hottest names in EDM Trap Music right now. He’s fresh off of his debut tour NIGHTREALM and has decided that slowing down will not be on his to-do list for 2022. With his first festival slot announced for HARD Summer this year, he’s choosing to celebrate that news with another Sable Valley instant-classic, “REDloop,” dropping today.
While EDM Trap has certainly slipped as the most popular subgenre of electronic music, there are some young guns, like ISOxo, who are ensuring that it remains a force to be reckoned with when talking about the industry as a whole. Names like ISOxo, Juelz, Hex Cougar, Jon Casey, Eyezic, Runnit, and tons more have been taking the scene by storm and bringing that trap sound back to the festival forefront once again.
Not only is ISOxo pushing the boundaries on the genre, but he’s doing it with a crew of hitters from San Diego, appropriately dubbed the San Diego Waterboys. Any group that includes the names Knock2, RemK, FrostTop, and Aleko is one that is going to draw a lot of attention from the production community, and for good reason, these guys make BANGERS.
ISO’s discography is already impressive enough to have been a career of a much older artist. He’s already released three massive singles and an EP off of Sable Valley Records which has solidified him as a significant figure for a group that is quickly defining the next generation of Trap. With his latest, he’s furthering a portfolio that is quickly putting him into a class of his own.
“REDloop” is one of the most anticipated IDs from RL Grime’s 2021 Halloween X mix released so far this year and if you take one look at this video of ISO playing it live you’ll find out why:

It opens with a classically scary intro section that proves ISOxo’s masterful ability to build suspense. The vocals are distinct and reminiscent of “Radial” and “Nightrealm“. And the drop. Oh my, this drop… This drop brings a disgusting amount of energy and the appropriate stank face to accompany it.
After that first drop and just when you think you have this one figured out, ISO brings in a house beat to swap out for what would be the second peak of the track. An absolutely filthy house beat at that. From there, he builds back into an even bigger final drop that unleashes all of the pent-up energy in one fell swoop and leaves the listener’s jaw agape. This one is a banger from start to finish, and going to be well worth multiple listens.
ISOxo may be young but he is showing signs of being one of the most complete producers in the game. His ability to keep his sound fresh but distinct and deliver time and time again makes him one of our favorite artists to watch. “REDloop” is just another feather in his cap.
