Carnage Announces Retirement From Music Industry – EDM.com

After a whirlwind 14 years in the electronic dance music industry, Carnage has announced his retirement at the age of 31.

While his detractors will likely remember him only for his occasionally irascible offstage antics, most will—and should—celebrate Carnage as a pioneering electronic music producer.

Carnage’s groundbreaking work in the early 2010s helped usher in a new genre “festival trap,” a thunderous, 808-heavy twist on the saturated electro music that dominated festivals at the time. Buoyed by a thriving SoundCloud community, festival trap quickly became a movement—and Carnage was its vanguard.
