About Keys N Krates
One listen to Keys N Krates and you’ll know why they’ve been called “the ultimate live-remixing experience.” Hailing from Toronto, the band combines live instrumentation, turntablism and sampling to not only reinterpret but also reinvent existing music of all genres. With the remix culture these days being dominated by artists behind laptops, Keys N Krates are changing the game by bringing a refreshing live, hands-on approach, to the burgeoning scene of remixing. With the hard-hitting Adam Tune on the drums, World Champion DJ Jr-Flo behind the turntables, and the ever-soulful Matisse on keys, this Canadian trio is single handedly “Re-Inventing the Remix.”
In early 2009, Keys N Krates was featured in URB Magazine’s “Next 100” issue, joining similar acts, such as Passion Pit and Drake. Over the last few years, the band has toured all over the country and abroad, playing more than 150 showsand releasing a URB sponsored remix tape and video entitled “Live Remixing 101.” More recently, they’ve shared the stage with artists such as Kid Cudi, Steve Aoki, Questlove, and Timbaland. Suffice it to say that these young re-mixing masters are ones to watch!
