Kaytranada: Australian Tour 2013

If you've been looking for a new artist or some new music to listen to, you've come to the right place. And that new raw talent comes in the form of Montreal-based Kevin Celestin aka Kaytranada. With firm roots in hip-hop and heavy electronic influences, he delivers melodic rap and dance grooves that anyone can get down to. The influential producer is making his way down under for some exclusive shows with fellow Canadian beatmaker Ryan Hemsworth in August. Can't wait.

Kaytranada Australian Tour 2013

I know I’m always writing about the work of Perth-based Ta-ku, but last week, there was news via Acclaim Magazine that they (along with Brown Bear Entertainment) were bringing his Huh What & Where label-mate, Montreal-based Kaytranada down under for an exclusive club-set tour!

The flier above says that fellow Canadian beatmaker Ryan Hemsworth is also on this tour, but I’m more interested in seeing Kaytranada. đŸ™‚

Seriously though, there are so many artists hitting our shores within the next 6 months and I hope to see as many as I can. Time to cross off that bucket-list of musicians I’m hoping see live. Who’s on your list?

Kaytranada is definitely on mine. For those who don’t know him, or haven’t read either of my reviews of his work lately, I’d be happy to be the one to introduce you to his work.

Press play on either of the above songs for some of my favourites from his remixes, and watch below for his set from the Boiler Room in LA earlier this year. So good.

All three are available for download via his Soundcloud and have most definitely been high on rotation on my ipod.

Not sure when tickets are available yet, but keep an eye on our Facebook page for further updates.
