Folk Melodic Dubstep? Here’s what Trivecta has to say…

You may know who the electronic dancer producer, Trivecta is. He might be as the DJ who makes you cry while you headbang. Or that guy you might’ve seen a couple of weekends ago at the Heartbreakers Pod Concert Event. Or maybe, that guy who makes Folk Melodic Dubstep. Yeah, that’s right, folks. Folk. Melodic. Dubstep.


Trivecta, also known as Sam Dobkin, has created a magical, inspiring presence for Ophelia Records and the electronic dance music community as a whole. Listed on his website, Trivecta’s self-described goal for producing music is “making dubstep beautiful again”. With this goal in mind, he has exceeded his expectation and even developed his own genre, Folk Melodic Dubstep.

So what exactly is Folk Melodic Dubstep, and where did this idea come from? Folk Melodic Dubstep is a fusion of three genres: Folk Music, Future Bass, and Dubstep (“Melodic Dubstep” being a combination of Future Bass and Dubstep). Trivecta’s inspiration came from Folk artists such as Mumford and Sons and Of Monsters and Men, where their music is acoustic, heartfelt, and folklore driven. Trivecta found a way to incorporate their style into his music, and released his first Folk Bass EP, Everyday, in April 2020.

Because of this, Trivecta differentiates from many melodic EDM artists. One of his tracks from the EP, “Leave It All Behind”, uses uplifting lyrics such as, “Don’t— leave it all behind, don’t leave it all, don’t leave it all”. These particular words make you feel like you need to make a decision on whether to give up or to face your fears, and not leave it all behind. The drop then takes you into a climactic moment of overcoming your fear, and making the decision to not give up on everything you have.

Sources on Twitter show that he’s working on creating his 2nd Folk Bass Project. This is a tweet from a fan that he directly quoted:
