Hennessy Artistry Electrifies Music Scene with Events in Canada
Internationally renowned artists, Keys N Krates and Just Blaze to perform

  Hennessy, the world’s finest Cognac, is delighted to announce major events in Toronto (November 20) and Vancouver (November 22), as part of the Hennessy Artistry global music series.
Featuring a fusion of dramatically different, yet complementary musical genres and world-class artists, the Hennessy Artistry Series in Canada will welcome the musical styling of home-grown electronic band, Keys N Krates and the famed hip-hop producer and DJ, Just Blaze. They will transcend genres by conjuring different sounds and eras through a series of live performances, showing audiences across Canada the true ‘art of blending.’
“All over the world, Hennessy Artistry events blend the best in both music and long drinks to create unforgettable experiences for discerning audiences,” says Stephane de Meurville, general manager, Moët Hennessy Canada. “Hennessy offers musicians from radically different worlds a night to combine their talents by sharing the stage and their music, just as Hennessy develops its cognacs by combining the best eaux-de-vie from its cellars.”
The Keys N Krates trio, Adam Tune (drummer), David Matisse (synthesizer/keyboardist), and Jr. Flo (turntablist), merge drums, keyboards, a turntable and live sampling on stage. Keys N Krates will  blend and morph their set with Just Blaze. A force in the hip-hop scene, Just Blaze has worked with a myriad of artists including Jay-Z, Kanye West and most recently, Baauer, famous for his hit song “Harlem Shake.” His style is unrestricted by musical categories, and often fuses live instrumental arrangements onto tracks layered with samples from hip hop to dance.
“Hennessy Artistry made sense to us from the get go,” says Adam Tune, drummer of Keys N Krates. “We reference everything from hip-hop to bass music in our beats, taking from whatever inspires us at the time.  It’s cool how Hennessy is incorporating so many different types of acts into their live series.”
Each event will offer partygoers a mix of sound, visual innovation and music, showing a unification of rhythm and taste, the joining of alternative urban cultures, and the versatility of Hennessy Very Special.  Guests are invited to explore and experience the universe of the brand’s mixed drinks based on four flavours that mix perfectly with Hennessy cognac – berry, citrus, ginger and apple. 
Since 2006, Hennessy Artistry has promoted the art of blending through events in major cosmopolitan cities, including: Toronto, Montreal, New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Moscow and Hong Kong.
Hennessy Artistry Canadian Event Dates:
Toronto:  Uniun Nightclub, November 20, 2014
Vancouver:  Fortune Sound Club, November 22, 2014 

 In anticipation of their upcoming on-stage collaborations and performances, Hennessy and Keys N Krates invite fans to explore the group’s unique approach to song creation through sampling, sequencing, remixing, audio production and blending, in the Hennessy Artistry-produced “In-Studio Secret Session.” The narrative explores the artists’ collaborative processes and the true ‘art of blending:’
