Relentless Beats

Listen to Keys N Krates Favorite Songs on Their Spotify Playlist

Over the years, Keys N Krates have become one of Toronto’s biggest exports after a slew of singles and EP’s, huge sets at some of the biggest festivals across the globe, and racking up millions of plays online. Where a lot of acts in the EDM scene are seen behind a laptop or some other setup, the trio consisting of Adam Tune, David Matisse and Greg Dawson, perform as a full band with keyboards, drums and decks, something Dawson says in an interview with Exclaim is vital to what makes them such an enjoyable live act.

Another key to their success is the group’s open-door policy when it comes to varying styles. KNK remain almost impossible to categorize and this is something they take great pride in. “It’s kinda tough to put us in a box,” Dawson explains. “I mean, we’ll do a record with Katy B and it’ll have a drum & bass intro and then the drop is synths and the drums are rap. We’ll take one of our beats and we’ll put a rapper over it and to us that all makes sense, but it doesn’t necessarily make sense to a music reviewer, and we love that, to be honest.”

Just as KNK’s creations vary in genre, so does their personal taste in music. Keys N Krates has created a Spotify playlist titled ‘Keys N Krates Sounds’ that they created to kick off the new year, and update weekly. The playlist has 56 tracks, and as far as genre goes, there’s a little bit of everything. KNK threw in some RL Grime, M83, Kanye West, Travis Scott, The xx, Kid Cudi, to name a few and of course some of their own music as well.

Now instead of connecting with Keys N Krates through their own music, fans can also do so by listening to the tunes that the trio themselves are into, and get an idea of what inspires them. Keys N Krates will be joining a massive lineup including Alesso, Above And Beyond and Illenium to name a few at Phoenix Lights Festival in April, and you won’t want to miss it.
