    Back to the OP's question, which is still a little scary...my answer is. "i've never heard trap mixed well because it just all sounds like noise to me, most djs are just dropping and hard cutting in to the next track. Not a style I favor...

    I try not to do quick cuts unless its neccessary. Check out this lil part i cut out of a mix im working on.

    (Skip to 3.00 for instant trap)

    First mix from dub to trap is kinda greasy , and the last trap mix in comes in on the breakdown, kinda a mess up but u can see that trap can be mixed abit more then quick cuts and slammin faders.

    I play almost exclusively radio (Beyonce-ish) R&B, Jersey Club (Hoodboi, Lido, style that shares elements with trap), trap, and drum and bass in all of my sets. It's not easy, per se, but mashups and layering/cutting drops selectively allow you a ton of freedom and lets you please a crowd that might otherwise be difficult. Drop-to-drop as well as verse-chorus-verse where you mix in the verses helps create those critical transitions. The more complex chords are refreshing and fun for mashups if you have acapellas

    I Mix Mainly Tap-esque Genres and try to use the bridges as a mixing point heavily. Shameless plug below of my most recent mix.

    The best tip I can give you is to find a better genre to mix. Trap is horrid. Like mixing diarrhea and puke from last nights hangover then pouring to down your ears, cold.
