Keys N Krates have been longtime TSIS faves for their hip-hop dance fusion sound, but today marks a new direction for the Canadian trio: house music. Building on the momentum of their last two single, “Say You Love Me” offers a sneak peak of the type of tasty house beats we can expect on their newly announced album.
“Say You Love Me” is a joyous tribute to the classic house sound Keys N Krates grew up with. While it’s definitely a departure from their trap days, we can still recognize their signature groovy vibe and wizardry of pulling the perfect samples. Through the use of smoky vocals, tribal percussion, and a bouncing bass rhythm, they immediately hook listeners with their hypnotic production.
Here’s what they had to say about the influences behind this new single:
“We all grew up on house music and have always dabbled in it on other projects, but this tune might be our “housey-est” endeavor yet. For us, ‘Say You Love Me’ embodies the soul and fun that drew our ears to house music in the first place…We want to be at the party where this is playing.”
In addition to the release of “Say You Love Me” today, Keys N Krates also told us they have a new album coming in the fall, and a 12-stop (and counting) tour. Make sure to check out this tune below. Enjoy!
