Treat Me Right

Dum Dee Dum cracks A MILLI!

1214 679 Tim Gauthier

[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]

Keys N Krates join Vimeo’s Top 10 Videos of 2013

With its long, ambiguous buildup in outer space, the opening to this video kills us. The music is bumpin’, the handclaps are going, we’re ready to go, but to where? Then BOOM! The video’s concept kicks in, and it’s grins from ear to ear. We don’t believe in guilty pleasures, but this vid is pretty sinful, and when it finishes we’re ready to press play and indulge again. Ohji definitely knows how to treat us right. (Jason Sondhi)

Keys N Krates have been around for like, five years and it seems to me like there is no better time to become a super fan of this duo than right freaking now. With the release of “Treat Me Right EP” and its respective remixes (provided by the likes of GRANDTHEFT, LAZERDISK PARTY SEX, AND THUGLI), they’ve given us the gift of a low-key yet outrageously dance-worthy masterpiece. The tempo is steady, the vocal overlay isn’t overwhelming and gets straight to the point, and there is an overall feeling of hearing musical magic that just feels right; it’s memorable and oh-so-enjoyable without feeling like you’re getting punched in the face by basslines and wibbly wobbly wubs. Keys N Krates bring their unique minds and musical prowess together brilliantly, as proven by “Treat Me Right” in all of its mellow and perfectly executed magic.

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 love to superspy ass-kickery, only an origin from deep space can explain Treat Me Right’s evolutionary mysteries.

Watch the video on the Dim Mak Records YouTube Channel.
Download the THUGLI Remix on Soundcloud.

Later this year, catch Keys N Krates on the road in North America, and playing some of your favorite summer festivals like LollapaloozaHARD LA and more yet tba.

KNK likes to record their music like a traditional band, “jamming it out until something comes out” says Adam. Watch as they rehearse for their live performance of “Treat Me Right”.

“The track’s hip-hop basses combined with feel-good electronic synth melodies explains why these three dance pioneers should be ‘treated right’ by contemporaries throughout the rest of 2013”VIBE Magazine

Tune, Matisse and Jr. Flo – or Canadian electronic trio and burgeoning live-act KEYS N KRATES as they’re more widely known to the music world – have today released their latest single ‘TREAT ME RIGHT’ on Steve Aoki’s globallly-celebrated Dim Mak imprint.

The first track to be taken from their forthcoming ‘SOLOW’ EP, ‘Treat Me Right’ was initially premiered across the airwaves on Annie Mac’s taste-making BBC Radio 1 show on 8th February to a truly incredible reception. Since then, the iconic trap-tinged electronic/hip-hop monster has been enjoying hefty support from the online sphere and has become a mainstay in the sets of big hitters such as TNGHT, Diplo, Annie Mac and Salva (to name but a few) over the past few weeks.

Having been recently crowned #1 of Billboard’s official “Next Rising Artists” chart, Keys N Krates are also gearing up for high profile North American LIVE shows at SXSW Festival (Austin, Texas), Blue Martini (Tampa, FL), WMC (Miami, FL) and Blue Martini (Orlando, FL). See below for full list of tour dates.
