The ArtScience Remixes will feature 8 reworks from Glasper’s 2016 album ArtScience. I haven’t been having any Kaytranada withdrawal symptoms as I still have 99.9% on heavy rotation and his tracks for Talib Kweli and Lou Phelps quenched my thirst for new music. On that note (pun intended), I’m happy to hear the Montreal musician has teamed up with Robert Glasper for a joint EP…

Here’s the video for Ivan Ave’s cruising anthem, “Also”. I’ve never understood the phrase “having your cake and eating it too.” What else would you do with cake if you had it? Regardless, it’s meant to describe wanting to have things both ways. Ivan Ave’s latest track, “Also”, talks about that concept. The backing track is a gorgeous throwback courtesy of SF fave Kaytranada and…

We interviewed Deadpoole about his latest album and his thoughts on last year’s music. Luke: Congratulations on the new album. Would you say this is your best to date? Deadpoole: Thanks so much. I think so, even right from when first I started out I was always working towards an album. The three EP’s that preceded NIGHT/LIFE were me cutting my teeth musically, figuring out…

Listen to Illa J’s new single “Strippers” produced by Potatohead People and Kaytranada, from his forthcoming solo album dropping in Autumn. After a number of collaborations over the years, Illa J is ready for his latest solo project and has enlisted the production team of Kaytranada and Potatohead People for “Strippers”, the first single from the album. Since moving north to the colder climates of…

Despite being one of our faves, Kaytranada’s Leave Me Alone featuring Shay Lia missed our attention. Listen here if you missed it too. Playlist maestros Digster have recently published their picks for 2015 and as I traversed the dense selections of new age R&B, pop and electronic music, a familiar name popped up like a Pokémon in tall grass. Kaytranada has featured heavily on Sampleface…

Just when you thought you were bored of Pharrell’s Happy, Kaytranada went ahead and rearranged it into a brand new jam. It’s an unwritten rule to have only one song per artist in a playlist/mixtape you make for someone else and while the playlists I make for every summer are for my ears only, I’m struggling to keep the Kaytranada count to just the single…

Common gets the remix treatment from Kaytranada as “I Want You” is turned into a bouncing electronic dance track. Can this guy do no wrong? I was first alerted to Kaytranada’s immense talent when I heard his remix of Janet Jackson’s If (I loved it so much, I played it as the opener to my first ever live gig) and since then, he has gone…
