Keys N Krates transform Madeon

Keys N Krates have been mentioned to me a few times recently and it was only today that I checked out their SoundCloud page, and only one thought came to mind, “Why had I not done this earlier?!”.

Keys N Krates are a Toronto-based trio of drummer Adam Tune, turntablist Jr Flo and keys maestro Matisse Francois and their innovative live performances are something to behold. They started by remixing hip-hop classics but with more recognition comes more diversity.

This track is French teenage sensation Madeon and his song ‘Icarus’ but switched up, as you’d imagine. Tune’s beat on this song is huge and the new synths are sharp, cutting and heavy, there’s a definite hip-hop influence and it culminates in a remix I will be listening to for quite some time.

Keys N Krates Blackout EP is available for free download here.
