Tag: Keys N Krates
Were someone to describe Keys N Krates as an artist who includes Diplo and Annie Mac as friends, one whose schedule includes appearances at festival stages like HARD, Mad Decent Block Party and Electric Zoo, and one who is signed to Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak label, you might have and idea of who this artist is. But as a live electronic band, Toronto-based trio Keys N Krates, are anything but a typical EDM act.
In fact, as they show on their new EP, SOLOW, out this Tuesday, there’s still a lot of room for originality in a genre typically defined by similarities. Check out the first listen of SOLOW here, on CODE.
Steve Aoki returns to the fore alongside fellow EDM megaliths Chris Lake and Tujamo with a rhythm styled just in time for the summit of the festival season. “Boneless” has become the next stalwart across dance floor. And…..
The words “Dum Dee Dum” may conjure up images of a little girl frolicking through a field of daffodils (at least it does for me), but when you associate “Dum Dee Dum” as the newest release from Keys N Krates, the result is anything but innocent and flowery. A fiery track that has a steady anthemesque beat to it, “Dum Dee Dum” is as original as it is heavy and infectious. In support of this release, Keys N Krates have created a BEATPORT Chart that is sure to please. Featuring ROYAL-T, CASHMERE CAT, RL GRIME, DIPLO, RUSTIE and more, the August 2013 TOP 10 Beatport Chart from Keys N Krates is hyper and eclectic, filled to the brim with bossy beats and heavy bass. Run through your field of daffodils and over to Beatport to nab this hella tight chart, and prepare for the next wave of a Keys N Krates take over!
Toronto-based live electronic outfit KEYS N KRATES presents “Dum Dee Dum,” their newest single off the upcoming SoLow EP out this September on Dim Mak Records. KEYS N KRATES recently partnered with BBC Radio 1 tastemaker DJ/radio personality Annie Mac…
While it’s all well and good to rattle off a list of accomplishments, sometimes it’s just easier to name-drop. Keys N Krates has toured and played alongside Bassnectar, Skrillex, Kid Cudi, Pretty Lights, Major Lazer, Girl Talk and Zeds Dead in recent years, and received support from notable electronic artists such as Diplo and TNGHT. There’s a smorgasbord of talent in this Toronto-based trio — Dave Matisse on keyboards, Adam Tune on drums and Jr. Flo on turntables — which has been blending electronic and trap music with rap beats since 2008. They played SXSW, Ultra and Wakarusa music festivals, and are getting ready to release their SoLow EP in September. (via USA Today)
By now, I’m sure you’ve fallen in love with Felix Cartal and Autoerotique’s “The Alarm” (and if you haven’t, then shame on you). Whether you have or have not, prepare yourself to get stoked all over again because it’s been remixed, giving the already vibrant track three fresh new perspectives.
The party never stops when the Dim Mak crew is on scene. If you thought day 1 in Miami was wild then days 2 and 3 of WMC 2013 were nothing less than savage.
Things got wet and, well, weird as we hosted our highly anticipated Dim Mak Records Pool Party on Day 2. The Raleigh Hotel pool was full of babes in bikinis and dudes ready to dance their faces off. With rousing performances by Steve Aoki, Dzeko & Torres, Dirtyphonics, Laidback Luke, Keys N Krates, Yolanda Be Cool, Borgore & Carnage, Clockwork, and Benny Benassi, just to name a few, the day turned into night and back to day before anyone even realized it happened.
The insanity continued on day 3 as we made our way to the OWSLA Party at Red Bull House where we undoubtedly had our share of fun.
Make sure you stay tuned for “Dim Mak Invades Miami – Part 3″ to catch us at Ultra Music Festival.
This year we started off the 2013 festival season in Austin, Texas during the SXSW festivities for the Dim Mak x Buygore showcase. A few members from our team headed out from LA to the lone star state to help including #Jenks, Bryan (B!) Linares, Alexvnder, and others. Even our good friend NeilFavila.com made it!
The event served as a platform to showcase Dim Mak’s newest and long-term artists from near and far. We rallied in the troops for a roster that included Scanners, AutoErotique, PeaceTreaty, Azari & III, Keys N Krates, Will Brennan, New Ivory. Borgore and the Buygore camp presented Kennedy Jones, Ookay, & an epic Borgore x Carnage dj set. You know this was a party!

Treat Me Right: an epic trip through space, time, and romance novels. The new video from Keys N Krates’ interprets its own ambiguous request by borrowing from the beautifully rendered (yet often ridiculous) world of vintage romance novel cover art. Spanning everything from Highlander…
