I'm pretty stoked t
o see Keys N Krates
return to the Pacific Northwest for the second time this summer at Decibel Festival
. Their set at The Wreckage stage at Paradiso
was one of my favorite sets I've seen all summer.
Keys N Krates consist of drummer Adam Tune, synth/keyboard aficionado David Matisse and internationally award-winning turntablist Jr. Flo. This trio from Toronto, Canada has experienced success throughout North America in recent years with their hard-hitting, crisp-sounding trap. The drums, the synth... it all just sounds so clean. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Keys N Krates is one of those groups that actually sounds better live. You'd be a fool to miss their set at the Bass Cadets 2 showcase (also featuring Paper Diamond, gLAdiator and Thugli) at the Showbox Sodo on Friday, September 26th.
Here's the latest from Keys N Krates:
