It seems like the city of Toronto can do no wrong. Not only are the Raptors sitting comfortably in the playoff spots in the Eastern Conference, but the music scene in T-Dot is really popping too. Global superstars like Drake and The Weeknd have all spawned from the Toronto streets, and their exposure has shone the light on some of the other talent in the city, including a few people we're about to mention today.
Keys N Krates, the three-piece electronic music heavyweights whose passion for their live shows helped put them on the map, have been steadily building up a loyal fanbase with their strong bodies of work that have featured on Steve Aoki's Dim Mak Records amongst others. P Reign on the other hand, has seen his friendship with Drake give him the ultimate platform to display his talents, his Dear America EP, and the legion of fans his music has gained him, is testament to that. As he has carved out his own sound, as he straddles the singer/rapper divide comfortably.
So what happens when you bring together two of Toronto's hottest talents? You end up with a jam that'll be setting the tone for many a night out across the globe. Key N Krates take care of production duties, delivering a slow, trippy beat, with some hard hitting kicks and crunchy percussion that are overlayed with some subtle bass lines. When you take this kind of instrumental, and add in P Reign's auto-tuned singing over the top, with those lyrics about having just one more drink, it all comes together to create a faded anthem for the partying masses across the globe. This combination is definitely one that works incredibly well, and hopefully we'll be hearing more music from P Reign and Keys N Krates more often!
