Let’s set the lay of the land here. Anderson .Paak is one of the most important American soul/urban exports of the past decade. Kaytranada, a staple part of the rise of the aforementioned talent and a frequent collaborator, continues to flip beats at the blink of an eyelid with maximal force. Together once again, this time via remix duties for Paak’s ever important ‘Bubblin’ single, Haiti’s finest dials back the beats to give both the Californian heavyweight and Busta’s complimentary vocal work a little more breathing room. Nothing trumps the original, but we sure aren’t pissed that Kay flipped the switch on this one.

Compton rapper Buddy is releasing a new EP today, “Ocean & Montana” is a five-track offering that was produced entirely by acclaimed Canadian producer KAYTRANADA. To coincide with the release, Buddy is sharing a new video for “Find Me”.

Kaytranada with a nice little dj friendly edit of that amazing Solange track “Cranes In The Sky”.

“I couldn’t help it and i can’t deny how good it sounds. this is just an edit to play on my dj sets, and i played it once and everybody wanted it right away. Honestly i was gonna wait to see if Solange or her team or whoever works for her wouldve ask me to do an offical remix so if they still want to, i could make it sound better than that version but ohhhhh, what the hell….”

Canadian artist Kaytranada just won the Polaris Music Prize in Canada and he also dropped new mixtape “0.001% ???” as a celebration. The 90 minute long mixtape could be seen as a follow up to his highly acclaimed “99,9%” album that was released just before the summer.
