Headliner Feature - KAYTRANADA
Night 1 of Sasquatch 2017 features a duo-headline of KAYTRANADA and Bonobo, but we're going to focus here on the Haitian-Canadian DJ who is the biggest name in the production world right now. He's worked with names such as; Anderson .Paak, Aluna George, Vic Mensa, and even GoldLink. He isn't an electronic producer - to pigeon hole him in that realm would be to say Childish Gambino is exclusively a funk musician - that would be to ignore the rest of their vast and endless talents spanning multiple genres.
KAYTRANADA, born Louis Kevin Celestin in 1992, still calls Canada home, while spending time collaborating in California. His beats are all very unique - if you hit shuffle on his latest album 99.9%, for instance, it will not sounds like one continuous album - rather a mixture of sounds criss-crossing over electronic, funk, dance, pop, and hip hop/trap genres. His best work is yet to come, and that's saying something considering the quality of releases so far!
I have compiled a quick playlist of some of his best tracks - both solo and ones he has collaborated on, as that's what life is all about - connecting, sharing, and working together. Enjoy, and don't miss his set tonight starting at midnight!
