With a jazzy intuition, masterful use of elongated synths, a keen eye for seamless kick inserts, and a talent for bending vocals to his will, nobody knows how to flip a track quite like Montreal DJ and producer Kaytranada. Considered an artist's artist, Kaytranada has gained respect across the industry having worked his way up the ranks to become a legend of the underground dance scene. He then gained mass notoriety following the critically acclaimed release of his 2016 album 99.9% and is now one of the most highly sought after producers by top artists and labels alike. His ability to hone in on the heart of any soulful R&B track and inject it with the kind of dance rhythm that envelops the dance floor with pure groove is why he's one of our favorite artists to cover here at EARMILK.
So, to celebrate this 'King of Groove', we put together a playlist with some of our favorite Kaytranada remixes from over the years. Mixes of Janet Jackson and Teedra Moses will showcase that warm synth signature of Kaytranada but there are also a few gems that showcase his bold use of extensive hi-hats or his versatility as a producer to slow things down to either a more dark, menacing beat like in his remix of TLC.
