While it may look that way on stage, nothing is ever simple with Keys N Krates. Not when everyone has an equally valid opinion, along with the willingness (no, the all-consuming need) to sit and scrutinize a hearty 808 hit or laser synth line for hours on end.
It's been this way since the very beginning, when Keys N Krates went from being a live hip-hop band reliant on rough acapellas and memory-jogging remixes to something much more complex - a tight-knit trio of producers/performers - Turntablist Jr Flo, Keyboard player David Matisse, Drummer Adam Tune - who take rocking a party as seriously as a week spent in the studio.
Which explains why their breakthrough singles (the elastic loops & diamond-edged drums of "DumDeeDum" the head rush hooks of "TreatMeRight," a frantic, D'n'B-flavored "AreWeFaded") are able to pull the strings of packed festival crowds without resorting to tired EDM tropes. Hip-hop, house and UK bass music all play a role in a Keys N Krates record, but so do the dark-tinged dynamics and widescreen ways of indie acts like Caribou and M83.
But perhaps what truly separates Keys N Krates from the mass of electronic and hip-hop producers, is the unique show they create by performing their beats as a band, completely live. When you see Keys N Krates live, you will see their music turned on it's head using only drums, keys, turntables & live sampling. Their unique style creates not only a crazy dance party, but an experience and vibe like no other.
