Keys N Krates Announce Midnite Mass EP, S”are "U Already”Know"

“We wanted to make something loud, fun and catchy.”

November 10, 2015

The Toronto based electronic trio Keys N Krates – known for their unique live performances of paring keyboards and drums with a turntable – are back with “U Already Know.” A high-energy single from their upcoming EP, Midnite Mass set to be released Jan 15 via Dim Mak. “U Already Know” showcases Keys N Krates’ appreciation for sound, mixing heavy bass borrowed from contemporary rap with the colorful sounds of `90s rave music. The fast beat pulses behind a looping of the song’s lyrics—you already know—creating a track that is fun and exciting, much like their live performances.

“With 'U Already Know' we wanted to make something loud, fun and catchy,” said Keys N Krates in an email to the FADER. “A bit of a smack in the face, but a fun smack in the face from one of your best buds. We drew from '90s rave vibes and current bass and rap music.” Catch the trio live when they embark on the Midnite Mass tour starting this January.
