Stay hip-hop act-turned-future bass rockstars Keys N Krates launched their debut studio album Cura by way of Dim Mak Records (that means “Remedy” in Spanish), and oh boy! It’s good. Sónar Hong Kong, Extremely and Electrical Forest are a couple of key stops on Keys N Krates’ current multinational ‘Cura Tour.’
The band told Billboard, “We needed the framework and constrictions of this vibe to permit us to drift between having the ability to make slowed down disco information, trippy, bizarre, folky rap information, quirky instrumental “entice” information, increase bap sounding information, and even soundtrack information; and have that every one make sense collectively!”
Six tracks deep, “Flute Loop” (feat. Ouici) hit me like a ton of bricks. Turntablist Jr. Flo’s mate captured his daughter uttering “Ummm, I wish to play the flute” on an iPhone, straightaway turning into the music’s hook and sampled all all through Cura. Keys N Krates’ decelerated disco groove, “Glitter” (feat. Ambré Perkins), spotlights syncopated electrical bass strains and 101 BPM making the Studio 54 technology proud. Adam Tune, David Matisse and Greg Dawson (Keys N Krates) and 19-year-old lyricist 070 Shake channeled their inside Rae Sremmurd on “My Evening.” Its dazed and confused synthpop swag echoes Mike WiLL Made-It produced chart-topper “Look Alive.”
All the time bellwethers, Adam Tune, David Matisse and Greg Dawson (Keys N Krates) introduced house the Canadian bacon at The 2016 JUNO Awards; their single “Save Me (feat. Katy B)” earned them Dance Recording of The Yr, an honor solely shared with dance music’s elite: Armin van Buuren, deadmau5 and Martin Solveig.
