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!

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!
