Stream Keys N Krates’ Midnite Mass EP

Keys N Krates Midnite Mass EP is out January 15 on Dim Mak.

A couple of days ahead of its official release, Toronto electronic rabble rousers Keys N Krates have unleashed their Midnite Mass EP unto the world via exclusive stream on The FADER.

Spanning six tracks and featuring vocals from Katy B and Aqui, Midnite Mass is an enticing grab bag of electronic tropes and textures. At moments it is intimate and in others it bangs; sometimes its gritty, sometimes its tuneful. Or, as the guys explained in an email to The FADER: "We wanted to make music that feels good at home but also slaps in the club or at festivals. It needed to feel like a small body of work that is both emotional and epic while banging out at the same time. The process was basically us creating our own samples by co-writing bits with vocalists that we would then fuck with and make these tunes around. Every song had to have grimy sample textures whether it was a distorted string lead, lo-fi drum sounds or morphed vocals, because after all, we think of all our beats as rap shit in the end. The shit also had to be catchy and poppy."
