NEW EP & MASSIVE TOUR COMING FROM KEYS N KRATES!

August 8, 2014 Tim Gauthier Blog, Music, News Tags: , , , , , ,

After several months of patient waiting, fans of the three-piece live electronic sensation known as Keys N Krates are about to be rewarded by Every Nite, the fresh new EP from the Canadian musical masterminds. Still flying high off the success of their undeniably catchy hit “Dum Dee Dum,” Keys N Krates are ready to launch into the next phase of their journey with this 6 track offering, which aptly demonstrates their evolution as a band, as well as their loyalty to the unique fusion of hip-hop and electronic music that they’re known for. Set for release on September 23 on Dim Mak Records, Every Nite displays the seamless blend and complementary juxtaposition between the drums, keys, turntables, and live sampling that so clearly distinguishes Keys N Krates.

Ahead of the EP, Keys N Krates are presenting the first single “Are We Faded,” which is set for release August 26. About “Are We Faded,” Billboard says, “The new single, ‘Are We Faded,’ is dizzyingly sexy, pushing along at a slower tempo that’s ideal for sweaty, middle-of-the-dance-pit grooving. It’s carried by choppy female vocals that bounce around in tandem with the synths, vanishing every once in a while to let a low voice chime ‘f-f-faded.’

Keys N Krates have celebrated recent success with “Dum Dee Dum” (off their SOLOW EP) nearing the 100k downloads sold mark (99,659 as of July 30), and with the accompanying video amassing more than 2.2 million views on YouTube. Other recent achievements include the Tove Lo flip of “Habits” into “All The Time,” which has collected over 5 million Soundcloud plays, as well as the entirety of their acclaimed SOLOW EP, including “Treat Me Right,” which shot to #1 on Hype Machine, received instantaneous support from figureheads such as Diplo and Flosstradamus and was debuted by Annie Mac in the UK. They have also been featured on some of the biggest and best festival stages around the world including HARD in Los Angeles, Voodoo Festival in New Orleans, and Lollapalooza in Chicago, with USA Today singling them out as emerging artists to catch.

In celebration of the Every Nite EP, Keys N Krates are embarking on a massive fall tour, co-headlining with Gladiator and with support from Thugli, that will take them across the expanse of North America. Aside from their noteworthy talent as producers and studio musicians, Keys N Krates truly set themselves apart by their performances, where they bring their live electronic instrumentation to the stage together as a band. With stops in Los Angeles, Denver, Boston, Philadelphia, Phoenix, and countless more, Keys N Krates are canvassing the continent making sure no fan gets left behind.

Loudpvck & Gladiator‘s new track “Tony” is set for release on Ultra Music August 12, following Gladiator‘s collaboration with A-Trak, a remix of Foster the People’s “Best Friend.” Also Joining Keys N Krates on the tour are fellow Torontonians, Thugli. Loved by Diplo, A-Trak, Flosstradamus and Bauuer for their distinctive sound, described as a hybrid of dirty south rap combined with a love of melodic builds and heavy synth, Thugli will be releasing their debut EP this fall, and their remix of Diplo & GTA‘s track “Boy Oh Boy” features on Diplo‘s new album.

Aoki spits the truth!

August 8, 2014 Tim Gauthier Lifestyle, News Tags: , , ,

When I perform, I don’t think about the haters, the Internet trolls, or anyone else. I care about giving the person in front of me something they won’t forget. And that’s why I bring the cake and raft out.

Where do I begin?

I haven’t had a chance to really to speak about all the controversy around my on-stage entertaining: DJing vs. The Cake (which includes the cake, the raft, the champagne, the stage dives…the entertainment part of the show). The haters and the trolls have always used me as an excuse to make fun of something that is out of the ordinary, something that doesn’t necessarily make sense to them. For whatever reason, I have always been a target that people love to attack. From not being American enough as a kid growing up in an all-white neighborhood, to not being indie enough for the die-hard hipsters in my 20s and now today, not being a “real DJ” for the electronic music purists…

Behind The Scenes: Wild Out Music Video Shoot w/ Borgore, Waka Flocka Flame and more

June 6, 2014 Tim Gauthier Lifestyle, News, Video Tags: , , , , ,

When you put Borgore, Waka Flocka Flame, and Steve Aoki together, you know you’re in for a good time. While the video for “Wild Out” features an epic party as well as some forays into a psychedelic world, the making of the video was a party itself. Go behind the green screen and see what the guys get up to when the cameras aren’t rolling. While it might be disappointing to realize that there aren’t ACTUALLY pizzas flying through space, the on set antics might be entertaining enough to let that fact slide.

Dum Dee Dum cracks A MILLI!

May 1, 2014 Tim Gauthier Music, News, Video Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

[two_third]Keys N Krates‘ “Dum Dee Dum” is one of those tunes that instantly gets stuck in your head, and with the official video passing the 1 million views mark, it is also getting stuck on your screens. Directed by Slave Labour, the video is a hilarious mockumentary that explores the Mennonite culture. In the video, the director visits various Mennonite communities and introduces members to current technology unbeknownst to them, including iPods, boom boxes, and more, all the while blasting “Dum Dee Dum.”

Off of last year’s SOLOW EP, “Dum Dee Dum” is also taking festival stages by storm this spring, with support from Skrillex, Carnage, Diplo, RL Grime, Flosstradamus and more. This week the single hit #16 on the US Dance Singles Sales Chart (as ranked by SoundScan), making it the only trap record aside from “Turn Down For What” in the top 20. “Dum Dee Dum” is showing no signs of slowing down.[/two_third][one_third_last]
