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)

Matzerath and Bais Haus expand their palette to take on Lollapalooza’s contest via do312.com by bringing analog back into swing of EDM production. The two DJs rip into San Diego rockers Delta Spirit’s new single “California”, transforming the indie rock piece into a Belgian Techno infused track. Their remix steps up to the plate with an arsenal of sonic tricks similar to that of producers Mumbai Science, Gesaffelstein, and Junior.
