We were totally blown away by the new house music coming from Keys N Krates earlier this year. The trio mentioned they had a new album coming out in the fall, but we didn’t have more information – until now. Not only does the project officially have a name – IN:TENSION – but they also dropped another single to celebrate, “Higher.”
Given Keys N Krates’ name and hip-hop origins, it’s fitting that “Higher” features heavy sampling from soul records. They take timeless elements like gospel vocal chops and pair them with modern components like the irresistible four-on-the-floor beat and booming 808s. Sunny keys complete this euphoric musical treat, with the retro, funky organ on the bridge acting as the cherry on top.
“Higher” has us grooving in our seats, but we know that this type of music was made for the dancefloor. Make sure to hear for yourself – Keys N Krates embark on a stacked tour this September. In the meantime, you can check out “Higher” below. Enjoy!
