With crowds roaring for new and different, artists who deliver come in high demand. Enter Keys N Krates, the Canadian trio that has established themselves as mainstays in the trap and bass scene through creative releases that continue to keep fans swaying. Regulars to the Dim Mak imprint, Adam Tune, David Matisse, and Jr. Flo k always bring a freshness to their work, which has seen and countless plays across Soundcloud and multiple features on the trendsetting BBC Radio 1.
Over the last few weeks we've heard extended cuts of "Are We Faded" off their forthcoming Every Nite EP, another classic Keys N Krates track that balances a bit of breaks with updated trap elements and solid vocal reworks. The 6-track release drops September 23rd on Dim Mak, accompanied by the Every Nite Tour, beginning in Phoenix, AZ on September 18th before crossing the United States, venturing up into the colder Canadian provinces, and finding accompaniment with the musical talents of Thugli for a select few shows.
To hold you over while you wait for the EP and as a prelude the upcoming shows you'll be seeing, Keys N Krates have shared a collection of tracks that they listen to Every Nite. For the first half, you'll encounter chill songs - BANKS, Bauuer, and Caribou for some - before transitioning into the hype tracks, like those from Rustie, Lido, and Hudson Mohawke.
As with anything from the guys, everything is quality. So sit back, press play, and get ready to sway.
