Artist Spotlight: Keys N Krates

The next big thing out of Toronto? I might be late on this one but f***k it, this s*!T is dope.

Dynamic Adam Tune on the drums, World Champion turntablist Jr‐Flo on turntables, and the eversoulful
Matisse on the keys are doing nothing short of “re‐inventing the remix.”
Like nothing you’ve ever seen before, Keys N Krates combine live instrumentation, turntablism and live
sampling to remix existing pop music and samples from MGMT to Jay‐Z right before your eyes. Pushing
the envelope beyond the ideals of laptop‐centric remix culture, this unique trio changes the game by
bringing an explosive live analog presence to their sought‐after sound and performance.
The live re‐mix trio was featured in Urb Magazine’s “Next 100” issue and continue to receive countless
co‐signed features by Urb Magazine, Vapors Magazine, (AOL’s premiere music site), Beyond
Race Magazine, Evil Monito, Hip Hop Official, Format Magazine, Discobelle and more.
Sharing stages with Kid Cudi, Steve Aoki, Questlove and Timbaland, KNK maintain a non‐stop tour
schedule throughout all of North America. The trio has recently taken their live re‐mix sound to the
studio crafting live compositions into signature recordings, slated to release new music mid 2010.
