Published Sep 18, 2013Toronto trio Keys N Krates got their start as audience-pleasing live remixers, but having made the leap to original music, they've just shared a new EP called SOLOW. It came out yesterday (September 17) through Dim Mak and is available to stream in full.
The four songs sound very of-the-moment. Not only do they have a brash and hard-hitting style that blends hip-hop with the club-oriented beats of EDM, but there's a song called "Rachet Hoe$." Elsewhere, "Dum Dee Dum" features samples of a voice repeating, "Not just in front of that mirror, girl, you twerkin' it on the dance floor." Evidently these dudes have been reading a lot of Urban Dictionary lately.
SOLOW is available on iTunes.
