Kaytranada

Noisey


 

Born in Haiti and raised in the city of Montreal, Canadian artist Kaytranada has experienced an explosive rise in the past couple of years with his irresistible production and live sets, but the hard work and success did not happen over night. Before touring the globe and amassing millions of hits online with his series of beloved tracks and mixes, the young man came up as a true disciple, absorbing hip hop and RnB culture since his childhood and finding ways to make the music his own.

Since the age of fourteen, when he first began to DJ and the following year when his brother introduced him to music production software, his output has been relentless. Initially garnering attention for his instant-classic remixes by the likes of Missy Elliot, Janet Jackson, TLC, Danny Brown and others which cemented his reputation and his sound; his solo output – trademarked by an undeniable swing of the drums comparable to Dilla’s, a signature soulful touch in the melodies, and a healthy dose of funky bass lines – has cemented his status as one of the most important producers in today’s musical landscape.

His highly-anticipated debut 99.9%, which featured the likes of Syd, Craig David and Anderson.Paak lived up to expectations and was frequently named as one of the best albums of 2016. Don’t miss Kaytranada at Lovebox.
