midnite Mass Keys N Krates

Long time TSIS covered artists Keys N Krates have been absolutely killing it releasing a slew of originals in recent months. Their unique trap single "U Already Know" was released in November and is still stuck in our heads. On top of that, just last week they gave us a taste of what was to come with their lead single "Nothing But Space" ft. Laura Aqui. The chilled out trap / future bass song came a week ahead of the release of their Midnite Mass EP, which is now here today.

Keys N Krates have decided to surprise listeners by letting them stream the EP in its entirety three days before the official release via Dim Mak Records. The 6 track project has the trio performing at their best throughout. "Love Again" ft. Ouici is a fast paced banger of a song and is one of the never before heard cuts off the EP. The project also includes previously released hits like "Save Me" ft. Katy B and "I Know U." Stream the exciting new Midnite Mass EP ahead of its official debut and make sure to pre-order the project over on iTunes! See if Keys N Krates will be in a city near you here.

Toronto live-electronic trio Keys N Krates have been hard at work dropping bombs throughout 2015, with their most recent being a genre-bending trap hit called  "U Already Know" in November. The three are now back with the mesmerizing "Nothing But Space" ft. Laura Aqui 
Opening up with a down tempo, spacious intro as Laura Aqui offers her heartfelt vocals to the track, Keys N Krates ascend into the drop through heart pumping claps and kick drums to develop the song into a chilled-out trap smash. After the song drops, the Toronto outfit once again show off their immense skill set, this time through speedy high hats and a perfect mixture of hard-hitting trap and flowing future bass. 
"Nothing But Space" serves as the first single off the group's impending Midnite Mass EP which will be released through Dim Mak Records on January 15th. Check out the single below and make sure to preorder the new project as well!

Keys N Krates, the live electronic trio from Toronto, have had quite an amazing year as they continue to take their music and live shows to impressive levels. Now they are following up their collaboration with Drum N' Bass icon singer Katy B on "Save Me," which took the internet and festival crowds by storm all summer long and led to some impressive remixes from guys like Naderi and Wuki. 

Well the trio is back with their latest single "U Already Know," which has the group continuing to tap into some breakbeats in the intro and buildups like we saw in "Save Me." Their signature style continues to develop further as we hear their unique live-powered take on the trap & future bass genres as their sound comes together for a beautiful collection of live instruments, tasteful distorted vocal chops, and electronic energy. Here are a few words from Keys themselves on the tune. 

"We wanted this tune to be loud, fun and catchy. A bit of a smack in the face, but a fun smack in the face from one of your best buds. The vocal sample made us want to juxtapose different styles, so we drew from 90s rave vibes, current bass music and rap."

Listen to the track below and enjoy!

Save Me Naderi RMX

We have the next page in the exciting story of Naderi, who's transitioning from a behind-the-scenes Australian producer to solo artist. Earlier this year we premiered his flip of Daniel John's "Aerial Love" followed by the best remix we've heard of Fetty Wap’s “Trap Queen” and an unreal rendition of GRiZ’s “For The Love.” Now Naderi is back at it with a huge new remix.

This time around we're giving you the premiere of his take on Keys N Krates’ recent original Save Me which fetaures the vocals from the inconic Drum & Bass singer Katy B. After the beautiful sounding intro, this new rendition drops into distorted vocal samples lushly mixed with trap-esque percussion and colorful synths all while managing to keep Katy's smooth vocals largely intact. Stream the track below and look out for a release next week via Dim Mak. Enjoy!
