Kaytranada | 99.9%

kaytranada-99-9percent

Montreal-based artist/producer Kaytranada’s new album ‘99.9%’ will be out on May 5th via XL Recordings. He announced the album on Benji B’s Montreal Special show on BBC Radio 1. The LP holds 15 tracks and features guest appearances by BADBADNOTGOOD, Karriem Riggins & River Tiber, Syd of the Internet Band, Vic Mensa, Craig David, Goldlink, Alunageorge, Phonte, Anderson.Paak, Shay Lia and Little Dragon.

The album is called 99.9% because as Kaytranada says: „I am never satisfied with my album and I am very indecisive.“ Fans have been asking for this full-length over the past few years he has been discussing for an equally long period of time so it makes sense that he would title the album this symbol of just barely incompleteness.“

Listen to the track ‘Bus Ride“ featuring drummer/producer Karriem Riggins after the jump. Pre-oder now on XL Recordings or iTunes.

III

bbng-badbadnotgood-3-iii

BADBADNOTGOOD are back … Matthew Tavares on keys, Chester Hansen on bass, and Alex Sowinski on drums. Since their inception at Humber College’s Music Performance program in 2011, the three have challenged the rule book on improvised instrumental music and taken jazz tradition into the future. With early champions including acclaimed BBC broadcaster Gilles Peterson and Tyler The Creator who helped fuel their discovery with a series of live jams that instantly went viral and dubbed them the “Odd Trio”, the band released their first EP ‚BBNG‘ in June 2011 to wide praise. The marriage of jazz virtuosity and hip hop source material offered a fresh take on the traditional “standard” applied to hip hop classics by taking on choice cuts from the golden era rap cannon and writing inspired arrangements for them instead of one-dimensional covers.

sustain

badbadnotgood-sustain-new

After the first track „CS60“ off their upcoming third album „III“ (Out May 6th), BadBadNotGood now returns with a new single. “Sustain” and “Can’t Leave The Night” dropped recently via Innovative Leisure. Purchase the tracks on iTunes. The Toronto trio consisting of Chester Hansen, Alex Sowinski and Matt Tavares comment their recent release …

This album is actually entirely instrumental and completely surprise free – unless people are surprised by hot jams. The only collaborators on the album are with some very talented friends and we’re hoping the music will speak for itself. Some of the future jams we are working on will be with more friends and secret guests.
