Keys N Krates Tease Upcoming EP With a New Single ‘I Know U’

Keys N Krates formed as the brainchild of drummer Adam Tune, synth/keyboard expert David Matisse, and internationally award-winning turntablist Jr. Flo. The Toronto trio came together in 2008 with the desire to bring their blend of live electronic instrumentation to the stage.

They’ve often been referred to as the world’s only “trap band,” a title they reluctantly accept. Tune says it best: “At the end of the day, people are going to call us whatever they want. We are referencing everything from classic house music to Timbaland in our beats, but I think the trap references tap into what the current sound is, and we are okay with that.”

These guys have announced that they will be coming out with a new EP this fall, and to keep you all on your toes they just leaked a single from the upcoming album titled ‘I Know U‘. The track keeps true to the original sound that put the Canadian born trap-trio on the map in the first place. It combines a chopped up catchy vocal with upbeat percussion and a looming synth filled backdrop that will pull you into an ethereal soundscape that only Keys N Krates can create.

2015 has already seen Keys N Krates make their debut at Coachella, Tomorrowland, and EDC Las Vegas along with the release of another single ‘Save Me‘, but they are only going up from there. Taking on their tour the trio will be making stops at the Mad Decent Block Party, Electric Zoo, Bumbershoot, Nocturnal Wonderland, and many more. Check out ‘I Know U’ and the remainder of tour dates below.
