Rising Montreal producer Kaytranada told FADER last week that, in addition to his upcoming XL debut, he had a fraternal, hip-hop oriented project in the works:
Yeah, I actually have a project I’m doing with my brother [Louie P.]. He’s nineteen. He’s really trying to like be in the game or whatever, but he’s a good rapper. It’s under the name The Celestics—that’s my side project. I do the beats and he’s the rapper and we have this mixtape coming out. We just mastered it. It’s more of a hip-hop side of me. Sometimes I wanna make more danceable stuff, and then next I wanna make more hip-hop. It’s like the seasons. Every summer I make dance music.
That tape, Supreme Laziness, is streaming now. It runs a breezy fifteen tracks, and includes guest spots from Dudley Doo, Nana Zen, ST and “the wildest DMV rapper since Wale” GoldLink — perhaps returning the favor — as well as several shouts out to Montreal. It’s funky and warm, a perfect holdover for these last few weeks before the summer solstice, when Kaytranada sets his dial back to dance music.
