Yes, yes, yes….Keys N Krates (who I hipped you to nearly a year and a half ago), after a year of begging and pleading, have FINALLY dropped a mixtape or at least some sort of material that I can bump in my car or headphones, rather than get lower back pains from sitting in front of the computer for hours on end viewing their YouTube Channel. If you have not heard Keys N Krates just yet, you truly are missing out on some of the funkiest, most innovative, live sh*t on the block these days. “Live Re-Mixing 101″ is the the history of hip-hop and dance music getting ripped apart and rebuilt in real time, resulting in one of the most exciting, connective and participatory experiences in live music today.
Comprised of an award-winning DJ, Jr Flo, Matisse on keys and Adam Tune on drums, Keys N Krates have a communal arrangement that allows a manipulative diversity unprecedented in DJ culture. Showcasing KNK’s party-rock performances, Live Re-Mixing 101 includes their signature deconstructed compositions of:
Mos Def’s “Ms. Fat Booty”, Tribe Called Quest favorites, The Fugees, “Fu-Gee-La”, Talib’s “Get By” and Dre’s “Next Episode” to name a few. Also, peep the trailer for the mixape below as well as a few samples from their live performances. Damn, imagine having these cats play at your New Year’s Ever party…sh@t!!
