KAYTRANADA Reimagines BBNG’s “Kaleidscope”
Keeping it in the North, Canadian producer and DJ Kaytranada releases his latest remix, a menacing reworking of fellow Canadian jazz trio BADBADNOTGOOD’s track “Kaleidoscope” (the latter, if you don’t know, have played and belted out tunes for Ghostface Killah and more).
This remix he’s sped the tempo up and added a heavy bassline.
Given his age (dude’s only 22), Kaytranada has amassed many production credits. Of the generation who got their musical start on FL Studios, the young producer is gaining more and more respect for his extraordinary signature sound.
Recently, he announced on Twitter that he’s got a show coming up with Madlib and Ghostface, which would be a huge honor for any producer, let alone one of Kaytranada’s age.
To go along with that dream gig, Kaytranda also has performance slots for many upcoming festivals and shows, including a SXSW Boiler Room set as well Coachella and Governor’s Ball.
Having recently worked with both rap mainstays like Mobb Deep on their The Infamous Mobb Deep album, and up-and-coming acts like Chicago’s Vic Mensa, the well traveled and self-described “time decorator” Kaytranada should definitely be on your artists-to-watch list.
