AMBIENT FLESH LIGHT SYNTH
Are you a hipster who loves EDM, house, deep house, progressive psytrance and dubstep? Then you’re in for a treat.
Keys N Krates has been labeled a “trap” group but this band has talent way beyond making drunk white kids turn up. Drummer Adam Tune, Synth/keyboardist David Matisse and turntableist Jr. Flo are pioneers in blending live performance and electronic dance music. This Canadian trio definitely does not just press buttons and let the lasers distract you from their pre-made set. To see the LIVE talent and creativity for yourself watch these remix performances on their Youtube channel that are better than most songs on Beatport right now.
Aside from performing great music, their SOLOW EP from Dim Mak Records took over the blogosphere with the videos “Treat Me Right” making the Top 10 Vimeo Videos and “Dum Dee Dum” taking #1 on Hypemachine and was nominated for MTV Clubland’s Video Pick of the Year.
