Partnership with American Songs
Born in Haiti and raised in the city of Montreal, DJ and producer Kaytranada has experienced an explosive rise with his irresistible production and live sets, but the hard work and success did not happen over night. He began DJ’ing at the age of 14, and self-released a series of EPs and beat tapes that quickly began to expand his reach. Official releases on HW&W and Jakarta Records soon spread his name like wildfire and some instant-classic remixes by the likes of Missy Elliot, Janet Jackson, TLC, Danny Brown and others have cemented his reputation and his sound; an undeniable swing of the drums comparable to Dilla’s, a signature soulful touch in the melodies, and a healthy dose of funky bass lines. He was approached by Brodinski to drop the single “Free Things In Life” on the hotly-tipped French label Bromance, has headlined tours in Europe, Australia and North America, and released his single and video “At All” in 2014. Kaytranada continues to bridge the gap between the dance world, hip hop, and R&B.
