Haitian-Canadian music producer Kaytranada’s debut album 99.9% has been making waves in the hip-hop electronic scene in recent weeks. Our advice: ride that wave good. 99.9% is the perfect example of the best things that can come from artist collaboration. With features from talents such as BADBADNOTGOOD, Anderson Paak, Little Dragon, GoldLink, and others, Kaytranda proves his ability to pair his groovy beats strongly with veterans of any genre, always allowing his guests’ style to mold the track while maintaining presence through brilliant musical construction.
99.9% is constantly keeping the listener engaged, allowing no two tracks to sound alike. Even so, the talented producer transitions and blends into each song masterfully, never missing a beat and keeping the vibe bumpin’. This album is a promising glimpse into the future of Kaytranda’s releases we won’t be able to stop listening to.
