Abstract Hip-Hop | Premiere: Kaytranada – Hilarity Duff

Posted by on October 16, 2013

This is an instrumental affair. Kaytranada has been making appearances in the music scene left, right and center since his first major remix of Janet Jacksons’s ‘If’ back in 2012. As one of the biggest up and coming artist’s for 2014, he stacks this beat with heart-heavy bass and a great array of sounds to please your ear. It’s everything you expect/want out of Kaytranada which makes it so damn good.
‘Hilarity Duff’ is the B-side of ‘At All’, the new single from Kaytranada out now.

Electronic, Videos | Kaytranada – At All (Video)

Posted by on October 2, 2013

I don’t know if y’all are onto this yet but Kaytranada is basically one of the coolest producers out there right now. I mean, over pretty much any big artists in the game, I’d wanna kick it with him. Not only does he come off trill af, but this guy is in a whole other playing field, struttin’ to the beat of his own 808. And his music video for “At All” that just dropped today is the perfect example. I don’t wanna spoil it for you but really, who can make hanging out with female body builders look like the sweetest thing in the world? Not many.

But we’re here for the music anyways, right? In an interview with Noisey, Kaytranada broke down his creative process for this track in particular:

“I was in Paris when I did that song and I just wanted to make a track because I had producer’s block when I was on tour and I couldn’t do any music. I had this long break when I was in Paris though so I decided to take this Chaka Khan song. It’s one of my favourites called “I Love You, I Live You” and I just did random stuff. I usually play with the pitch of the sample but this time I just messed with it. I thought I’d bring something new to the table because not a lot of producers play with their style like that. The drums are like what I usually do with other songs.”

You can purchase his much-anticipated EP via HW&W Recordings on October 16th, and catch him live on tour with Groundislava and Jerome LOL. Check here for dates. In the meantime you can get back to your workout, and don’t forget: friends don’t let friends skip leg day.
