I'm pretty stoked to 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.
