KAYTRANADA's 99.9% is Fire

Bringing us a massive heap of genres and sounds, KAYTRANADA has finally debuted his first studio album, 99.9%. The Haiti born, Montreal based producer made his way into the scene though Soundcloud a few years ago. After being introduced to producing and DJing software by his brother, the fourteen year old couldn't get his hands off it. Soon after dropping some very successful remixes of Janet Jackson and Missy Eliot, his following grew tenfold and his music began to circulate all throughout the internet. 

99.9% is a brilliant conglomerate of soul, R&B, electronic dance and disco vibes that feature diverse talent including Syd tha Kyd, AllunaGeorge, GoldLink, Vic Mensa, and Little Dragon. 

Given KAYTRANADA’s humble background, living with his mother and producing while still sharing a room with his younger brother, it’s refreshing to see an artist's rise come from raw talent and practice at his craft. With this album it’s evident that he can kill any genre and make you love it. There’s no doubting his potential as a producer. He’ll be touring Europe and North America through October, so get your tickets fast!
