EDITORS’ NOTES

KAYTRANADA's debut LP is a guest-packed club night of vintage house, hip-hop, and soul. The Montreal producer brings a rich old-school feel to all of these tracks, but it’s his vocalists that put them over the edge. AlunaGeorge drops a sizzling topline over a swervy beat on “TOGETHER,” Syd brings bedroom vibes to the bassline-driven house tune “YOU’RE THE ONE,” and Anderson .Paak is mysterious and laidback on the hazy soundscape “GLOWED UP.” And when Karriem Riggins and River Tiber assist on the boom-bap atmospheres of “BUS RIDE," they simply cement the deal.

About KAYTRANADA

Producer Kaytranada arrived during the early 2010s with ear-perking remixes and an array of sounds that veered from J Dilla-inspired hip-hop beats to woozy house grooves. Born Louis Kevin Celestin in Haiti, the Montreal-raised artist, a voracious listener, got hooked on DJ'ing and production during his early teen years. Early on, as Kaytradamus, he issued a series of digital EPs, albums, and remix compilations. Around 2013, he began to operate as Kaytranada with the EP Todo and three-track 10" At All. In 2014, he remixed Disclosure's "January," produced "My Block" for personal heroes Mobb Deep, and made his XL label debut that August with "Leave Me Alone," a collaboration with vocalist and fellow Montreal native Shay Lia. During the next two years, Kaytranada's profile steadily rose with additional XL material ("Drive Me Crazy," featuring Vic Mensa) and outside productions highlighted by "Girl" (from the Internet's Grammy-nominated Ego Death), "Lite Weight" (Anderson Paak), "Love" (Rome Fortune), and "Honey" (Katy B). 99.9%, his proper debut album, was released in 2016 with guest appearances from Phonte, Little Dragon, and a few of his prior collaborators. It won that year's Polaris Music Prize. ~ Andy Kellman
