Tuxedo: "The Right Time" (Kaytranada remix)

 

Tuxedo is the duo of Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One.  The vocalist and producer teamed up for a brilliant album on Stone's Throw Records, and "The Right Time" is one of the stand out tracks.  Today we've got Montreal's Kaytranada remixing it, and with a special guest helping out.  One of the first things you'll notice about this soulful masterpiece is the drums.  Drums that were contributed by Toronto band BADBADNOTGOOD.  It gets no better than this...

This one is clearly a winner before you even press play.  A sweet tune collaboration from Illa J, Kaytranada and Potatohead People, the spirit and soul of Detroit is alive and well.

Towkio: "Reflection" (prod. Kaytranada)


 We've been following the music for Towkio's "Wav Theory" as it's released track by track.  "Reflection" is the latest, preceeded by "Free Your Mind" and "Involved" and the common thread is that Towkio seems to bring something unique to all of his tracks.  This one is produced by Kaytranada, so of course we had high hopes and over the minimal production Towkio brings the blues back.  He draws attention to the reflection in the mirror, and reminds us why that mirror is there in the first place.  We can't wait for "Wav Theory".

Towkio ft. Vic Mensa: "Involved" (prod. Kaytranada)

Chicago's Towkio and Vic Mensa team up on this Kaytranada track for one of the most unique and memorable tracks we've heard in a long time.  This is an example of what's to come with the upcoming project ".Wav Theory", executive produced by Peter Cottontale of the Social Experiment.  This is soulful hip hop with a very unpredictable song structure, making us think that ".Wav Theory" will be a true breath of fresh air.

Mick Jenkins: Rain (prod. Kaytranada)

Chicago lyricist Mick Jenkins dropped his album "The Water(s)" in August, and we just discovered this gem.  "Rain" is one of the top tunes on the record, and credit for that is due not only to Jenkins himself, but to his producer on this one; Kaytranada.  The laidback beat, and beautiful vocal sampling make for the perfect backdrop for Jenkins' thoughtful flow.  Test "The Water(s)" for yourself, get the album on iTunes.
