Listen To Kaytranada's 10 Hardest-Hitting Beats


Kaytranada has always been one of our favorite artists. We first fell in love with the Montreal based producer years ago for his work on downtempo, spacey, kick-your-feet-up-and-daydream beats. We then became even more enamored when he began experimenting with a mix of genres and creating a blend of hip-hop, jazz, and house music that fit together perfectly into a deliciously unique sound.

True Kaytranada fans know, however, that he also can get down and dirty with some surprisingly hard beats that are perfect for slapping in your car with the windows rolled down. We took it upon ourselves to dig for the ones that bang particularly hard, and rank them in order for your listening pleasure. Enjoy!
10. Missy Elliot - Sock It 2 Me (Kaytranada Remix)

Perhaps one of Kaytra’s most popular tracks. Try and not bob your head when those horns fully come in.

9. Kaytranada - Club Bang

Houston’s “chopped & screwed” scene has such an intoxicating appeal to it, that even Kaytranada couldn’t help but dip his toes into the sound. We’re glad he did, because the two go together effortlessly.

8. Kaytranada - Drive Me Crazy (ft. Vic Mensa)

One of the first singles that was released off Kaytranada’s immaculate 99.9% album. Vic and Kaytranada have undeniable chemistry and have a couple of tracks together, but “Drive Me Crazy” knocks the hardest for sure.

7. Big Dope P - Southside Anthem (Kaytranada Remix)

If you need a track to test out your stereo’s sub bass capabilities, Kaytra’s remix of “Southside Anthem” is a go to. This joint slaps so hard you might even have to turn the bass down…

6. Danny Brown - Lie4 (Kaytranada Remix)

What happens when you take one of the most aggressive sounding rappers in hip-hop and mix that with the one of the smoothest producers in electronic music? A masterpiece, that’s what.

5. Kaytranada - Holy Hole Inna Donut

This tune has a music video that’s as confusing as its title, but all of that is forgotten as soon as that bass kicks in. This track fit in perfectly with the trap craze that was going on in 2013. Almost sounds like a collaboration with TNGHT.

4. Kaytranada - Glowed Up (feat. Anderson .Paak)

Easily the hardest hitting track off of 99.9%, and perhaps Kaytray’s hottest hip-hop collaboration. This song has probably never been skipped, ever. Few songs can uplift your mood and slap this hard at the same time.

3. Kaytranada - Hilarity Duff

Once Kaytranada had developed a nearly perfect sounding 808, there’s absolutely no need to change it. His design of one of the most important sounds in music is remarkably fat, and can’t be confused with anyone else’s. “Hilarity Duff” not only bangs as hard as any other Kaytranada tune, but also features some pretty gorgeous synth work as well.

2. Kaytranada & Sango - Down4U

One of Kaytranada’s earliest bangers. Him and Sango have a lot of similarities when it comes to production, but the two reach a whole new level when they work together.

1. Kaytranada - Killa Cats

This track is as skeletal as it gets. Sometimes, though, all you need is some drums, a couple synths, and some bending 808s to really get the crowd going.

Kaytranada Delivers Must Hear, Chill New Remix Of Kelela's "Waitin"


Today is already a great day. It's a treat whenever we get some new Kaytranada and he's blessed us with a fresh new remix of Kelela's "Waitin." Kelela's remix album was announced just recently and the first one being Kaytranada is just what we wanted. Kaytra never fails to make a track his own whenever making a new remix. Once again he strips the production from the ground up, introducing his signature flavor throughout. He re-imagines the melodies, bassline and percussion to create for an entirely new vibe on the production while maintaining Kelela's incredible vocals. Stay tuned for more and enjoy!

Kaytranada & Mick Jenkins Team Up Once Again On New Track “What Am I To Do”

kaytranada mick jenkins side by side

A brand new collaboration by two artists we really admire has just surfaced. Mick Jenkins recently dropped a brand new track called “What Am I To Do,” and it’s produced by one of our favorites, Kaytranada.

The two artists have collaborated multiple times in the past, and considering how well both of their sonic aesthetics work together, we’re not shocked that they’ve released another track. As soon as “What Am I To Do” starts, you can clearly hear Kaytranada on production. The beat is laid back, heavily sampled, and full of soul. It only takes twenty seconds before Mick starts to snap.

Just a few weeks ago, Mick Jenkins announced that he was working on a new album, and he dropped a new single along with the news. We can’t confirm that this new track with Kaytranada is on the album as well, but we certainly hope that we hear more from the two artists.

Stream “What Am I To Do” below and enjoy!
