A few Tune Tuesday posts ago, I featured Låpsley, a young artist who's exploding on the scene. Imagine my surprise when I just discovered that prominent producer, DJ, and creative master Kaytranada, is only 23 years old. I often joke that this makes me feel like I've accomplished nothing in life, but that's silly business. But when Kaytranada has already been touring, opening for Madonna, and worked with names like AlunaGeorge, I sure feel like I need to get working!
Born in Haiti, but raised and based in Canada, Kaytaranda's style is modern, electronic, and much to his father's joy, features cultural beat references. There's something for everyone on the album, but my best recommendations are "Glowed Up" and "Vivid Dreams." Otherwise if you're looking for something super chill, hit up "Bus Ride." The song "Got it Good" features Craig David, who has Usher-like pipes, and is great for those who wanna spend all their cash on their babe. If you're feeling like hitting up something a little more retro, peep "Breakdance Lesson N.1."
Do you have any young artists you've been grooving to lately?
