KEYS N KRATES RELEASE NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR “I JUST CAN’T DENY”
‘SOLOW’ EP OUT NOW ON DIM MAK RECORDS
"If you're not familiar by now, Keys N Krates are a Toronto-based live act who have figured out how to get out of the 'pushing buttons in front of a laptop' mode and create a full-on live experience." —THUMP (1/29/14)
"EDM’s hottest live band…" —Zel McCarthy, BILLBOARD.COM (9/13/13)
“...the three-piece aren’t just concerned with doling out dirty wobbles and drops; they’ve also been known to string together glossy (albeit very beat-heavy) pieces that can easily pass as slices of sonic euphoria. To put it simply: these songs make you feel good.” —Michelle Geslani, CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND (1/16/14)
Toronto-based live electronic outfit Keys N Krates have unveiled the official music video for their track “I Just Can’t Deny” from their SOLOW EP, out now on Dim Mak Records. Directed by Amos LeBlanc and originally premiered on THUMP (Vice), the video brings the fan-favorite "I Just Can't Deny" to life as the Toronto trio slay the stage across music festivals and clubs around the world, while tearing up the stage in full live gear.
A highlight track on the SOLOW EP, “I Just Can’t Deny” is an anthem built for stadium crowds and festival denizens alike. The SOLOW EP also includes the single “Dum Dee Dum,” which perfectly exemplifies the group’s trap-tinged electronic/hip-hop hybrid sound. Last year, Keys N Krates released the critically acclaimed single and accompanying remix package “Treat Me Right” via Dim Mak, which topped The Hype Machine upon its release and has since received continued support from influential artists in the electronic world, including Diplo and Major Lazer,Flosstradamus, TNGHT, and more. The remix from producer Grandtheft of “Treat Me Right,” featured on the Treat Me Right (Remixes)EP, also reached #1 on the Beatport Electronica Top 100 chart. Also featured on the SOLOW EP is the hip-hop heavy “Ratchet Hoes,” which best illustrates Keys N Krates’ dominance of the current electro-trap movement.
The SOLOW EP from Keys N Krates is available now on Dim Mak Records.
Best known for their energetic live performances, Keys N Krates formed in 2008 out of a desire to do something different and have since then created an experimental sound unheard in electronic music today. The group—composed of Adam Tune on drums, synth-master David Matisse on keys, and internationally award-winning Jr. Flo on turntables—take the remix/electronic sound out of the studio and onto the stage, creating a new live electronica experience and bringing it to life via their fully live sets. Keys N Krates collage raw samples and twist them with live instrumentation, creating an inimitable sound and truly demonstrating the artistry of the live remix rarely seen in electronic music performance today. The group has enjoyed major support from the online sphere and has become a mainstay in the sets of big hitters such as Major Lazer, TNGHT, Diplo, Annie Mac, and Salva. They have also been crowned #1 onBillboard’s official “Next Big Sound” chart. Keys N Krates have toured across the globe and have performed at some of the world’s top music festivals, including Ultra Music Festival, Movement Electronic Music Festival, Wakarusa, Osheaga, and Sonar. The band has also produced remixes for Bassnectar, Adventure Club, Zeds Dead, and Nelly Furtado and has released a number of live, off-the-floor mixtapes.
